Recently, my personal email address was “hacked” (is that what you call it?), or “compromised”. Instead of using foul language, I’ll explain it this way: ‘I’m very upset at how strange emails with links have somehow been sent from my email address, without my knowledge, my doing, and without my consent.’ This kind of thing has never happened to me (ever) and I feel violated.
I’ve tried to send out a ‘general’ email, to my entire contact list, explaining what has happened but have only encountered difficulties doing so. Either my email can’t be sent, or I get ‘mailer-demon’ returns. I’m tired of trying to ‘fix’ something I never did to begin with! I’ve changed my password and now I’m done.
What’s worse, I’ve now been contacted by people I haven’t ‘spoken’ with in years (as I severed ties)! Great. Now what?! Do I be the better person and re-kindle the ‘friendship’; or do I continue to ignore and remain distant? Goodness gracious, I’ve had enough drama in my life.
I’m too old, and too tired for this.
