Stolen email address?

New Poster

Stolen email address?

Yesterday I opened an email and was requested to sign into a dropbox.  I put in my passwords for a google and a comcast account, and today I am unable to receive any emails at all.  Who stole my account?  The message was also sent to 94 people on my contacts list.  Yes, I shouldn't have opened it but it looked legit, with the letterhead of someone I knew.  What to do?  Oh, since I can't receive emails, your answers will probably go to the thieves!

Re: Stolen email address?

The first thing to do is immediately change your password and secret question and answer, both in the Comcast account and the Gmail one.  Then make sure to run a scan of your system with your A/V software to see if it finds anything wrong.  Check your Sent folders and see if there is anything in there you know you didn't send.
