Hijacked

Well for those of you who are in my yahoo contacts list or who popped into my google account you may have seen/received an email from me that I had "come down here to London, England" over the holiday weekend.

Well, surprise, I didn't. I was eating turkey with my in-laws in the good ole USA. Hopefully this didn't cause any undue concern. Seriously though, I just shelled out big $$ for two failed IVF cycles, saving for our third and final and possibly adoption. Where am I going to find money to "come down here to London, England?" Amateurs.

My dad called me at about 8am EST to let me know and I discovered I was locked out of yahoo, facebook and apparently they hacked into my google account as well...nice. I actually ran around the internets changing my passwords/emails and did change my Google but didn't check my blog because, who would post that dumb letter to a blog? I guess those idiots would.

And if you are reading, dear idiots, the reply you got back was from my dad calling your bluff. Seriously, I would never sign an email to my dad "Kind regards." And considering that in the US it's the biggest holiday weekend of the year, NOBODY would hop on a plane to go bashing around London (by themselves) instead of eating Turkey with family. Check your US holidays before hacking emails, m-kay?

Thanks for the comment Hilliary as it alerted me to the post so that I could delete it.

Agh! How annoying! Glad you got it figured out. Why do people feel the need to jack identities? ERGH!

I thought it strange that you would appeal to the blogosphere for "help" during your secret trip to the seedy parts of London and not just call Mr. Hammer. :) Plus, it had the whiff of an English-as-second-language writer, so...just make sure you give the nice Nigerian prince your bank account info so he can send you the 7.6mil US$ his government is trying to hide.

I thought that post was kind of odd. I am glad you have gotten things figured out. Scary.

I can't believe people can hack all of that stuff now, including your blog! I read the letter and thought it was really odd. It didn't sound like you. I just figured I'd wait a little bit and see if any more information came about. Glad to hear that your Thanksgiving included a nice family dinner rather than being robbed in a foreign country!

How awful!! I'm so glad you got it sortened out but what a hassle. I'm sorry you had to go through all of that! Grr.
