I just wanted to share this experience with you so that you know that there are some sick people out there who has got nothing better to do than hacking into people's emails. My email which I normally use and which I had on my blog has been hacked recently. I opened a new email account and emailed my origin email and asked blatantly who is doing this and why. To my great surprise, whoever it was replied to me as 'Gmail Admin' saying it was a problem with the server and I was given a new password. Now Gmail admin would never reply to me using my email, they would normally use a no-reply system and anyway, who would bite this?
Then the next minute, the second email I have just created got hacked too!I managed to devise a system of recovering my password asap.Now everything is in place and Im just amazed of the extent people go at times..! Sad , really sad.
Now I have learnt from my mistake so this is a piece of advice I can give you. On your comments section, choose to moderate your comments so you get to delete any comment you don't want. And always make sure of the secondary email you have used when you are creating your email, so that if you have to recover your password, you can do so by accessing the secondary email asap.
Anyway, I have spent loads of time to sort this out and I hardly have any time to sort other bits and pieces before going back to work on Monday!Have a great week end and see you soon!
