I'm almost sure that Google never texts their customers about their profiles being compromised but I would like to verify this fact. I received this message two minutes ago and it says: "Your profile has been compromised. Text back READY when you are able to verify your profile." Can someone help me? Need some advice if you please. Thanks!
I recently changed my password on Yahoo for my iPad and then a yahoo locked my account for thinking my account had been compromised,
They sent mr a re-activation notice and an email like yours--which all it means is you click on the link if they sent to prove you are you.
Oh, did you get my email?
There is a difference between getting one of those emails when you request it, and getting one out of the blue.
If you get an email from anyone - bank, Yahoo, Google, anybody - asking you to click to confirm your identity, don't click on it. Open another screen and go to your account manually. If you can log in and everything looks fine, you'll know the request was a scam. If you can't, you may find there is a message telling you what to do. Clicking the email link should be a last resort.
It's tough because they can look very convincing, and the site they send you to looks exactly like the real thing. So you enter your name and password and bingo, you've just given access to your account to a spammer.
Thanks for telling me about your experience! Yes, I did receive your e-mail and I sent one back. If you didn't, well I pretty much asked what you were apologizing for since you did nothing wrong. That's all!
Yours might be a scam but mine wasn't. When I followed Yahoos link my password was active.
I feel very stupid because my advice to you, wrtinglover, wasn't as good as Marisa's.
No need to feel stupid! I've done what you did before because I forgot my password on different occasions. It was all well and good when I got it straightened out.
Google DOES send you text message but ONLY after you change a password or make other changes. If you get one for no reason, delete it!
I'll keep an eye on Lois and her vicious mood swings. Sincerely, Wonder Woman!
Dear, Desr writinglover,
Thank you do much. Oh, last week she brought some whips and black costumes to her place and I sensed she was angry.
I made a faux pa when I said, "been to a yard sale, Lois?" Then her eyes turned red and well . . . I flew out of there.
You are a true WONDER of a young woman for doing this for me
No problem. She won't last long with my yellow lasso!
That's right. Ohhhh, your lasso . . .I get chills, ooh I mean, I'm stuttering. You are a great ally. Don't let her push you around.
You are so tough. I respect your attitude. And (seriously) I got your back.
No matter who the email seems to be from, go to your account online and sign in to do anything. Don't respond to emails.

Expanding on another question: If you have multiple hub accounts, what are the benefits?How have you used this, what are the benefits, is it difficult to keep things organized, do Hubpages discourage this?
by Dave McClure 9 years ago
It's a serious question. Can a Hub author bequeath ongoing hub earnings in a will, so that they continue to benefit next of kin for as long as HubPages is around and people keep clicking?

Hi, allUnfortunately, I have fallen victim to a hacker, fraudster or whatever you want to call them getting in to my PayPal account. They requested a fairly substantial transfer of funds from my account to another country. To their great credit, PayPal identified the likelihood of fraud almost...

While we are not supposed to be putting links within our hubs to outside sales sites in which we have an interest, is it allowed to post a link on the front page, in the "what's on your mind" status box, for a personal fundraising site asking for help to fund emergency repairs?
