    I think your email account has been hacked. I am getting strange emails from you with link in them that make no sense, no message, just links.

    This happened to me right before Christmas...first thing you have to do is change your password and security answer with your email provider. If you don't change the security info, they'll still be able to hack the account. Run a malware scan on your computer as well. They've most likely put a bunch of adware on the computer that you're not even aware that is there.

    Yup hacked.

    Someone hacked Katie's old email account too. Same thing going on. She got herself a new account.

    There are also ways to send email to make it look like it's from someone else even when their accounts haven't been hacked.

    My husband's email was hacked a couple of months ago. He had no idea it had happened until I told him was getting spammy email from his account.

    Changing the password stopped them.

    It's not my computer, but rather the Yahoo services. I've notified them. Thanks!!
