I had a message last night on my answering machine from my cousin, Laura. Laura and her family live in Virginia...very close to Washington D.C. While we don't talk often, maybe a couple of times a year, she's one of those people with whom there is no awkwardness when we do make contact... she's awesome!!!
Anyway, she told me that she'd been reading my blog, and saw my last entry about my EBAY problem. She told me that she had gotten a similar email from what she thought was EBAY that wound up being someone trying to coax her personal info and passwords out of her. Luckily, she got distracted, and her husband told her he thought it was a hoax. He went directly to the EBAY site, and sent them the email in question. They discovered that this was a common scam and was, indeed, bogus.
This sounds similar to what is happening to me, however, these dirtbags (sorry, I'm ticked) already have my information and are listing items to sell using my account. Not only that, but they are trying to sell illegal copies of "Sex and the City", "Friends", "X-men", etc. It's a mess!
And, to make matters worse, my computer is being rehauled and I have been trying to do all this on Sydney's laptop. Yesterday, the "i" and "k" keys were not working...ugh! Have you ever tried to write a letter without these letters????
Just try it...not fun!!!
ANYWAY, I was sooooo glad to hear from Laura!!! I think we are going to try to plan a trip to see her family in June...hope it works out!!!! Here are some pictures of her fam...aren't they gorgeous????
Doesn't she look like my niece, HK??????
