Now, About 1 week ago, somehow my YAHOO email sent "Claire" an email with a picture. She opened up the email and pic attachment via her blackberry phone. The then replied back from her phone commenting on this pic. The suspicions started when she asked me later about the pic and I told her I never sent her that email....
4 days ago she said she got 2 more emails from this same YAHOO email acct (mine) and the subject line weirdly had expressions that only me and her use. But before opening email, she asked me if I had sent them. I said NO. So she deleted them without opening them.
She then blocked my YAHOO email address from sending her emails to her yahoo acct....
However, today she got an email with a similar email acct name to my blocked YAHOO acct. One letter was the different in the address AND it was from AOL email acct (not yahoo).... Ironically, Back in 2002, I used to have this very same AOL email acct but closed it probably in 2003/2004 or so.
Is this issue with YAHOO mail itself, or any of the 3 computers that I use...
Heres what I have done so far.
* I ran malwarebytes on all 3 computers that I use...So far all comes out clean...
* I changed my password on my yahoo acct.
* Note that in my YAHOO sent folder, there is NO indication that the bogus emails were sent to her.
** Also, Of the 3 "weird" emails sent to Claire, some of the dates point to 2003 (whether in the subject line, date sent, or the date on the pic)..So maybe this helps somehow knowing that dates are old.
** It appears that no one else in my address book (that I know of) is getting any bogus emails. Just claire.
Also, since Claire opened up the first bogus email using her blackberry, is her blackberry infected?
The weird thing that may be a key here is the super Old AOL email acct I used to use that no longer exists.
I also sent a email to that AOL acct using a GMAIL acct I have to see if the AOL is a valid email address that someone is using...Well mailer daemon bounced it back so the AOL acct is not even valid.
Please guide me to what I need to do.
I thank you in advance
All 3 computers I use run Windows HP home edition. All have sp2.
I use Firefox or IE both.
