Headache In The Making

Someone just hacked into my Yahoo account and changed the password. So I can no longer access it. This effects the email address I have posted from time to time on this blog (imjasia at yahoo dot com). It was also the address where I had my blog comments delivered although I've changed that over to another address. If you have a Yahoo email address for me in your contact list please don't use it. I have notified Yahoo about the situation but I don't know what they can or will do about it. Perhaps they'll close down the account. In any event, I'm a bit leery right now about giving out another email address. If you need to contact me just leave a message on one of my blog posts and I'll get in touch with you.

And now I'm going to go pull my hair out trying to remember all the places that I need to notify about this situation. If I ever get my hands on that no good, dirty, rotten, jingo-stinkin, egg-head, scum-bum, varmint who did this to me I'll make 'em cry. I swear I will.


  1. Ouch! Sorry to hear about this, Jasia. :-(

  2. Sorry Jasia! I've had my yahoo account stolen too but I didn't have anything important going there.

  3. Poor You :( May the internet bed bug severely bite whomever did that to you!


  4. Oh, Jasia, so sorry to hear that.
    Let us know what Yahoo will do, if anything.

    It might be a good time for a post on how to prevent such a problem, if there is a solution.


  5. You know, if you do a Google search on "scum-bum egghead varmint" you get only one hit. Guess who??

    Yep - you!

    Is it fixed yet? I hope so.

    I don't use my Yashoo email for much of anything - only IMing and web-camming with my grandchildren (and daughters).

    Cheers -- Randy

  6. LOL....I'm not laughing at what happened. That really stinks. Apparently it's been happening a lot lately. Someone else just told me in a forum that their was hacked as well. I was however laughing at your language....very colorful way of dealing with it. It was cute.

  7. I'm still doing damage control on the Yahoo account. That was my oldest email account and had ALL of my Carnival of Genealogy stuff in it (my biggest loss :-(

    I haven't heard anything from Yahoo and I don't know if I'll ever have access to the account again. I'm still trying to change that email address in all the places I was using it. Sigh. I've still got the headache.
