    Yes sorry only joking Geoff I feel for you really - but you have sorted it and have closed it down so lesson learned - I know how much of a pain this can be - there are some sad people out there and this is a warning to everyone to be aware of scammers and people trying to take your money -

    I once had my wallet and all my credit cards stolen in the shopping centre - My wife went nuts and told me to ring the police but I never bothered reporting it stolen or changing my numbers - because the guy that stole it was spending less than she did.

    The Hacker told me he had added another three noughts to your cheque transfer and thanks you very much and he will buy you a star table out of his loose change !
    Seriously though it was not funny for me , having to fight to get control of an email address that I use for business as well as personal use , then thinking if he got into my PC he will also have access to Bank account etc , so had to change all security not only for my emails but for many other things that I sign into on my PC.
    I was assured he could not get into such things but with today's scammers you never know .

    Yes my email got hacked , they are using a Genuine BT contact page copied from BT and exact in every detail , the problem is BT yahoo is changing over to BT mail and every one must change over manually using the sign in box with your password . so the hackers are sending an official looking email out but my spam filter let it through where in the past it stops them ?

    Thus me being a bit thick filled it in thinking it was from BT and hey presto they had control of my email .
    It took two days to get it back , and 2 attempts by BT to erase him from my email account as he took control for a second time .
    another problem with BT is you have an Indian call centre , although the first person I spoke to was very good and I understood him perfectly .
    But he did not do his job right as the hacker still got back in , the second person from the Indian call centre said he was getting in from the still listed email that I had not deleted in my inbox , so we took every BT inbox email I had off the system , and also deleted many contacts over 400 to be exact .
    Sorry if anyone thought I had been Held up by Abdul and his gang and robbed and I promise to pay anyone back once Abdul has returned your money if they catch him .
    Seriously though did anyone fall for it ?
    a quick read of my web page would have shown That I was still in the Uk as I put regular write ups about work I am doing , if I am on holiday or working outside the UK even up in Scotland I always leave a message on the web site saying where I am ,

Somehow managed to set up a meeting with the other party, flew over alone to try and salvage the situation and was never heard of again... As I recall, it was a very sad case, the guy was in his 20s or 30s, single and his aged parent was dependent on him.

    May it please your Royal Highness,

    Funny- but is it actually a lot sillier than some of the scams on the internet? I am amazed that people are taken in by them, but people clearly are.

    Hi Philip,

    Your help is needed. I am a very wealthy Nigerian Prince called Prince Bobo. My son was kidnapped by Barry Hearn and is being held in a Spanish Prison. I need to bride the prison guards but lack funds as I purchased too many John Parris Ultimate cues this week. So just give me your bank details and I will send you one of the cues when they arrive in 48 months time.

    Yours,

    Prince Bobo.
