A member there, who is also a member here, posted an emal on the 56J Only forum titled, "you have been hacked", but there were no contents in the email. Can anyone confirm the hacking, or maybe the email was a hack?

Richard I hope you read this.

Thanks,
Joe H

Joe, I got a "weird" email purporting to come from 56J Only. It looked strange so I didn't open it. I think someone on 56J only has had their email hacked.

I think the 'you have been hacked' email was a warning to the sender of the 'weird' email just before that one.

Thanks for the info folks. Think I will avoid clicking on any posts there for awhile.

Hi Joe,
Just catching up here... sorry it was a warning that had 'suspicion' written all over it.
I have a good friend currently working in Europe and every now and again, I receive an email with his name in the subject line or a very suspect weblink, so I jump of FB and IM him with the hards up of 'you've been hacked' - took the same approach as I didn't to open and find something hideous!
Hope all is well and more importantly I wasn't sending out a false alarm.
Richard

Richard you need to seriously edit your post, had to reread several times to make sense of it.

Hmm, see what you mean. A hurried reply at lunchtime, when the dreaded predictive spelling takes control - ugh!
