Last night my dads facebook was hacked someone was messaging people saying he was mugged in England and he need money. I got a weird message from him but it wasn't him.
now he isnt getting any message to his yahoo email. He hasn't gotten any yahoo emails since 230 am i sent him one and he didn't get it. I logged on his yahoo and it didn't show any emails since 230am either and i just sent him one. how do you go about finding out what going on?

Change your password. Yahoo accounts can be very hacked. I was attacked about a month ago.

Someone actually uses that for something more than a junk email?

Fucking amazing.
I use yahoo for junk and gmail for serious stuff. What's a nigga to do? My ISP doesnt provide an email service.

So far no trouble.

Sounds like his mail is being redirected. Not only does he have to change the password, he has to go into his email settings and change that setting that is forwarding his email to another address.

This is what was happening. it was being sent to a email with one letter missing.
