My email's been hacked - sorry!

Bloggie friends!

My aol email account has been hacked so please ignore anything with the subject heading "Hot Properties!! Cheap Price!!" or any other such NONSENSE purporting to be from Old Kitty/domingojenn.

I never sent any of these stupid emails and I am hacked off that these idiot hackers have invaded my and your privacy. And they have the GALL to sign me off as "Jenny".

NO ONE calls me Jenny! Grrr! LOL!

I am not a happy Old Kitty! :-(

Charlie says: I is a sad kitty too!


Off we go to weep now!

So sorry you are dealing with this!!
Hugs!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We knew you'd been hacked when we saw the strange email today. Hope you changed your password right away!

Don't know why some folks think it's fun to do stuff like that. They should be productive and get a job instead.

Fuzzy Tales said...

I posted this on my own blog, a note to beware, hope that was okay. Everyone change their passwords!!!

Brian said...

I saw that email, but fortunately I deleted it. Hissmon those evil hackers!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

That sucks. I get hacked emails all the time from other people. :(

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, I haven't received any but I know that's a pain.

Debra Harris-Johnson said...

It happens to the best of us. Don't worry no one will hold it against you and Charlie. Sorry that happened to you. May those hackers burn!

Stephanie Sinkhorn said...

Oh no D: I hope you get it sorted quickly, I'm sorry!

mshatch said...

I haven't gotten one from you but I've gotten these types of emails before. So sorry this happened to you!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kitty, I'm sorry!!!

Oh good thing your blogged this Jenn, as I received this e-mail from you this afternoon and luckily did not open the link inside as I thought it looked suspicious. I'd advise any of your readers who did click on the link that their e-mail address may also now be hacked so they should warn the people in their adressbook the same thing.

It can happen to anyone -- do a virus check and change your passwords. Good luck!

I had my computer hacked once and it sent out very "inappropriate" e-mails to people who go to my church!! So, I'm sorry and I understand how upsetting this can be. :(

Lynda R Young said...

urgh! It's horrible when that happens. :(

Brigid said...

That's a nuisance, Old Kitty.
I had similar problems with the email address attached to my blog, I had to get rid of it.
How dare they call you 'Jenny':)

Medeia Sharif said...

I'm sorry this happened to you. What an invasion of privacy, and then for your contacts to receive these emails. :( I hope the password's been changed and everything is okay.

Pk Hrezo said...

Oh no! Email hackers are the worst. Someone once hacked into my facebook and was posting all kinds of crap. So amazing peeps have nothing better to do with their time.

Words A Day said...

thats so upsetting, I hope you get it all fixed up. Will be on my toes!

Mark said...

Awww sucks you got hacked :( I haven't had any strange emails, at least not from you. Charlie needs to cheer up too!

Lexi said...

That's annoying, poor you.

Mine was hacked a few years ago in tandem with my eBay account so the perpetrator could 'sell' dodgy top-of-the-range laptops.

I've made my passwords stronger since.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty - that is a right old pain .. and so frustrating to say the least.

I'm sure Charlie is as frustrated as you are .. but hope together you can have a few cuddles to see your way through it ..

Look after yourself .. cheers Hilary

Tracy Jo said...

Oh no!! So sorry, OK. That is very frustrating and don't you wish hackers would find something better to do with their time? Sending you positive thoughts and HUGS!

rumpydog.com said...

I'm very sorry that happened to you guys. I hope you get it all worked out.

William Kendall said...

Charlie, you must send out word to all your fellow supreme beings among the felines. The evil wicked hackers must be destroyed. Only the supreme beings are capable of doing this.

Martha said...

That happened to me too a couple of years ago. That's when I left AOL and got a gmail account. Sorry, hope it's taken care of soon.

joanne fox said...

How awful! I do hope you get things sorted soon.

KarenG said...

That happened to me awhile back, grrr! It's so frustrating, and you wonder how the heck did that happen?

Annalisa Crawford said...

That's happened to me before. It's annoying and I just deleted that particular account. I think most people these days are wise enough to ignore/delete those kinds of emails.

Manzanita said...

Some people don't have enough to do and that coupled with bad moral judgement (or perhaps they are even a-moral) are the evil doers of the world. They have no idea of the fingers pointing back at them until it personally affects them. Too late.

I'm sorry. It's such a personal violation. I've been there a couple of times too. Idiots.

Beth Zimmerman said...

That happened to my Yahoo account last year and I was royally ticked off! Hope all your contacts are understanding and compassionate!

Biddy Fraser said...

Goodness gracious, Old Kitty! What a horrible thing to happen, and what a cheek! Never mind.

Kjelle Bus said...

I found my way to you from Derry and Nicki at Fuzzy tales :)
Sorry to hear that your email has been hacked :(

Shirley Wells said...

So sorry to hear this. A couple of my friends have had the same problem this last week. What pleasure do these morons get from such activity? Grr.

Hope you get it sorted soon.

D..J. Kirkby said...

Oh what an invasion of your privacy :( Hope it is all better now. Charlie looks like a porcelain figure in that photo.

Talli Roland said...

Oh NO! Poor you! Poor email! How super annoying.

Marg said...

We got one of those emails and deleted it since we knew that you didn't do that kind of advertising. That is horrible that people can do that. At least it was just your email and not your blog. Have a happy day.

Hansel said...

oh dear charlie, do not weep! we hope things sort out soon!

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

We sure do hope everything is straightened out now. Would be a good thing if people that do this would put it to good use!
Hope you have a happy Sunday,
~ Malachi and The Bunch

meowmeowmans said...

We're so sorry to hear your email was hacked, Old Kitty! The lack of respect these jerks have is galling. We hope everything gets sorted out soon.

Adam said...

sorry to hear that

suzy doodling said...

Shame, Charlie looks so lovely. Ignore the silly people, you keep writing your lovely stories and poetry old Kitty.

Nas Dean said...

So sorry about your email.

It's no longer the 'Hot Property Deals!' Now it's 'I need your help as I'm stranded in ..... and lost my luggage!'

Hilarious really with what these spammers come up with!

m.q said...

The same thing happened to me from my non-blogging account in December. Apparently, I was stuck in some other country and had all my bags stolen. There was some embassy issue, so I needed cash. Fast. I was so upset, I completely forgot how to employ proper spelling and grammar.

But I don't think they got my name wrong. I'm grateful for that.

Jayne said...

Miserable hackers! They should just hack off, is what I say. :(

NYC, Style and a little Cannoli said...

Just found your site How wonderful Looking forward to more posts!!

Life 101 said...

This can be a real pain. But sometimes it's not even you that got hacked. It could be someone in your address book that got a virus and the virus absconded all the names and emails and sent out the spam on your behalf.
That doesn't make it any less aggravating, but just saying.
