So I decided I would reply and tell them I do not feel comfortable sending such information so they can go ahead and close my account I have google email. So I hit reply and this was the email address that appeared in the To: section
email@example.com Not firstname.lastname@example.org which appeared in the start of this email,..
Just curious who else recieved such an email,.. I did contact yahoo and made them aware of this email.
Good thinking, Mom-Just last week I was 'pfished' through my Hotmail account and was so mad, I wrote a Hub about it! Actually, I am a very new computer user and have never had anyone ask me these sorts of questions before-so I bit. Same stuff, it looks like, as yours in Yahoo.
Well, I guess you live and learn. I didn't really have anything critical in my account, so it's no huge loss, I just feel like a dummy, you know?
ya my accounts got hacked 2 times a few months ago and since i use the same password for everything it screwed up a lot of my acconts. now i use different passwords and im exstra cautious now,...speaking of my account being hacked those 2 times it was after i used a retweet button from a site i was on,.. for instant retweets you must give permission for a third party to access your account,.. I dont do that no more,.. i just tweet it myself on my own now.
And THEN you've got to keep track of all those danged passwords! Well, all the best to you, and keep up the caution!
i got phished for my facebook account twice last week. they said they needed to verify my account and that i had registered with the email account i use for hubpages (which i didn't). i thought that was strange since i opened my facebook account a long time ago, yet it said i had opened one with my hubpages email account on september 21. so someone must have opened one with my email address and hoped i would verify the acount for them.
god there's some sneaky little so-and-sos out there
I got that email several times a day about a month ago for about a week. I just deleted everyone of them. Looked bogus, so delete.

I just had someone try and compromise my Yahoo email account (that is linked to a spare Paypal account) - they tried to reset my password. After yesterday's hack attack just wanted to ensure that no one else was being 'hacked'.I changed my Yahoo password and close the Paypal account

Most of these 'communications' are unsolicited-like hair restoration ads!-though they claim I did subscribe. I've spent most of the day unsubscribing from all of them, and I have 3,604 to go. Needless to say, I'm exhausted and somewhat p*ssed. No time for writing!I understand...

I was hoping to open a second Hub Pages account for "other" writings. I have tried to do this, but getting a message that I need to use a different email account. Is there any way to open a second Hub Pages account under the same email address? Thanks.
