A few days ago I started getting emails telling me to check my credit score. This is probably spam and I am not going to click any links in an unsolicited email, but I've received 6 of these since Friday. In the past, I have received these emails, but never 6 in three days, and with my recent email hacking and facebook hijacking, I decided to react in panic mode.
I cancelled all my credit cards after checking for fraudulent charges, and have called in a fraud alert on my social security number to all three credit report companies: Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union. At Equifax, I spoke to an agent who told me that a fraud specialist would call me on Monday. I am really looking forward to this phone call.
I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org after reading on someones blog to do that with all my info, and I got an automated reply with some links to their help pages. Of course when I click on these, they want me to login...impossible. Any 'help' I ask for is going to the email of the hacker. This is so frustrating, I can't even put it into words how annoyed I am.
I am hoping that Equifax will be able to help me get this fraudulent email address that's in my name destroyed. I know I probably won't be able to identify the jackass, but I'm going to do everything in my power to. He messed with the wrong person, I will not lie down.
In his last email exchange of about 6 or so with the criminal, my husband wrote, 'I hope a bus runs you over and you die with the taste of your own blood in your mouth' or something like that. My sentiments exactly.
