I would first like to start this post by saying Sorry to all out there that received an email from me in the last few days saying I was in the UK, stranded and needed money. I am not in the UK i'm in my basement in good old Northern Ontario and did not send the email. Last week I received an email from Yahoo saying they needed confirmation that I use the account, after questioning it, I said "What harm could it do? " and after a large brain fart I replied to the message. Well the worst that could happen did happen, they took control of my email account, all my messages, contacts everything gone. I can't retrieve them, they are gone. It also took access to all that is associated with my old yahoo account, such as the yahoo group and facebook. Thank god it didn't take this one. I'm surprised as it was with the same email but I'm happy it didn't. So again, i'm really sorry if I worried anyone or made any wonder, but thank you to all who came calling...I now know who to call if I need money...lol

I have created a new facebook account under the name Natalie Beaudry Fournier and I have yet to regain access to the yahoo group, so until then I will depend on all of you for the latest updates.

Hope you all have a good week.

Well, when I got that email I thought....hmmmmmmm...Natalie probably isn't in the U.K. If she was she probably would have posted that bit of news on her blog ;)

I also know we are friends but since we have never met I didn't think you would ask me for money.

It sucks that someone hacked your account!!! Big time!

I am glad you got a new email and that we are facebook friends again :)

Hey you could probably use that money for Imagine, if you find the hacker tell him to share the love.
