Hacked again

For those of you who have been in Yahoo IM or email contact with me, my Yahoo address book has been hacked.  This morning I received the following email from myself:
 
"How are you today? I hope everything's alright. Please I need you to help me out with something. Can I get a loan from you very urgently? I`ll reimburse you under a week, I promise. I need to solve some personal problems at hand which have been giving me great worries. I`d also prefer if we discuss this through email as I'm presently in England for a friend's funeral. I'm sorry if I didn't inform you about it, but please try and understand. I'll let you know how much I need if you are willing to assist me. Thanks"
 
This has caused one dear friend much consternation and difficulty.  I have contacted Yahoo, changed my password, and am seriously considering just closing the account.
 
If you have received this email, know that it did not come from me, I am not in England, no friends have died, I have not been mugged, and I do not need money (any more than I ever did, lol).
 
Blessings to all.

Shevie, I got that today (and another similar one a while back) and it prompted me to come back to DS and re-connect with everyone! I thought it didn\'t sound like you! So as much as it\'s awful for you and I feel your pain, and I really hope it doesn\'t cause you any more distress there is something positive from it for me as I have made a well overdue return to DS to say Hi and apologise to you all. So thank you for keeping my email in your address book! x x x

Shevie, those of us who know you realize this is just something you would NEVER send.Keep shouting that you did not send and I will do the same.

Geez Shevie, if that wouldn\'t be so awful, it would almost be quite comical!! I hope all is well by now and you were able to keep your account or open a new one. {{hugs}}
