Home to survey the damage to my e-mail. I will be talking to some computer experts at the chess club tonight, but as of now all of my contacts and e-mails have been wiped out other than the last 18 I received which I found in trash.
As of right now I have bids from Ben, toddle, spid, rejay, bruce, Jeff, Jon, Jonas, mars, Lou and parking. If you sent in a list and aren't mentioned above, you may want to resend it.
Looks like what a hacker did was send out a help message to my contacts, then set up an account at hotmail under the same name and redirected responses to it. I've changed my password, notified hotmail, and the FBI.
There are some pretty sorry people in the world. My secretary and myself got phone calls all day asking if they could help. Hopefully everyone is smart enough not to send money without checking first.
