This happened to me too. Change your password immediately, do numerous scans on your computer for malware, spyware and anything else with different programs. Inform your contacts not to respond to these emails obviously not from you in terms of the content and you should be fine.

This is what happens when you spend your off-hours looking at sketchball porn. Do a few malware sweeps and change your pw.

Are you sure someone is actually logging in to your account? It's trivial to spoof email.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
