Highjacked!!!!

Well, I've been highjacked, spammed what ever you call it!!!!
I recieved a phone call this morning from a friend saying they recieved an e-mail from me saying I bought a computer and how wonderful the service was with a link.

If any of you on my mailing list get this e-mail DON'T CLICK THE LINK!! IT'S SPAM!!

I can't even reply to the people that wrote me to tell them it's junk, as hotmail tells me I have sent the max number of e-mails for a 24 hour period.
I don't know how they got my e-mail but it really fries me! I am sorry if any of you have recieved this e-mail.
If anyone knows how I can fix this or what to do about it, please make a comment on my blog as I won't be able to reply from my hotmail! This was the only way I could think of to reach any of you that might be on my list.
Ms "P" is in the process of placing a finger rigor mortis curse on this unscrupulus individual!!

Hi Gail... Yep got it through the NIADA group emails...knew it was not from you (the wording and phrasing were absolutely not from this country. Hotmail is really known for this...I would suggest another email source like yahoo or gmail ...Sorry this happened...

Hugs,
Jodi

Hi Gail.
I thought it was strange that you were advertising apple computer's and the such! It just didn't sound like you.

Like I said I got one like that from Tristen and it didn't sound like he'd be selling electronics!

I'm so sorry Gail... Let Miss P give them what they deserve!

My son uses gmail and loves it!

Hi Gail,
Yep, I got that email and right away thought ...now why would she be sending something like that to all these people.....anyway no worries seems like gmail has done it's thing as I've not received any spam.
Sorry to hear that they jacked you and hope that the whammy works on them!!!

I'm so sorry Gail. This wreaks! Let me know if Ms. P needs a faerie concoction of magikal dust to ban this odd character! Hope all gets taken care of !

Hugs! ~A~

I got it and left you a post yesterday on your blog about it. I would just ditch the email and go for a new one. If you can try changing your password that may work unless of course they have beat you to that. Good luck!

Ooooh, a Ms P curse! The dastardly dastards shall surely pay!

Gail Lackey said...

Thanks all, I think I got it resolved. I hope Ms "P' really put the whammy on them!!People that do that kind of stuff obviously don't have enough to do.I suggest they take up knitting or crocheting to keep their idle hands and minds busy doing something nice! Unless ms "P"'s finger falling off curse worked, in that case maybe they could just read a nice book!

Odddollz by Jacqui said...

hahaha, that's funny...I do hope miss "P"'s fingersfalling off curse worked too!! LOL
Glad to hear you have it worked out:)

Gail I think this thing that happened to you is EVIL.... don't you have one of your creations that can hunt these cyber-snakes down and put a hex on them?!!! Seriously, with the computer world it's just 'two steps forward, three steps back' isn't it? So sorry you've had this mess to deal with....
