    Just a note: Brian's e-mail might not be hacked. It is easy enough to spoof an address. I received one also, and I know that I have never been in e-mail contact with Brian before this. Not meaning to cause alarm, but it is possible that the e-mail addresses were harvested from either SDC or the forum and that Brian was chosen as a likely person to send the e-mail.

        Good insight, Dave; thanks. Perhaps no one did get into Brian's list of contacts, since you weren't in them. Everybody else I know would have been in Brian's list of contacts. BP

        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          It's likely some third party had their email hacked and Mr. Curtis' address was among those in the victim's contact list. It pays to have a strong password; something other than "12345" or "password".

              Brian told me this afternoon that he was definately hacked. His yahoo account is locked to him, probably not to the hacker who got his password and changed it, to get all of your money paypal'ed to help "him" 'get home from Spain!' Yahoo is on it, but down for now.
