after spending hours worrying about losing ALL my contacts
I finally searched for the right thing
and found out it is SO easy.

this is where you go if you ever experience any problems with gmail,

of course, I knew there must be a way to do this, but trying to get responses from Google
is impossible as they only communicate via one of there message boards...
takes a hideously long time.

but, restoring your contact list must be done within 30 days or it will be gone forever !

I love every single one of you who phoned, emailed and/or left comments
for me.

you knew I wouldn't be in the Phillipines, didn't you ?

So glad you found a way to restore your contacts. And yes, I knew immediately it was a scam, but how horrible to have your privacy violated like this.

Yeaaa, I hate losing my friends here! So I am hoping I can keep up by adding everyone by hand into a special notebook I created! This technical stuff is great until it fails! I hate those blasted scammers! I had one of those several years ago on my e mail but I can not believe those who know us well even think it is us! So ridiculous these hackers and scammers! Get a real life I say!

The hackers were in Lagos, Nigeria. Enough said. Nigeria is the hotbed for scams.

Hello Marsha
Thanks for this information,

For one moment, I did not believe you were in the Phillipines \

Wishing you a joyful weekend.

Of course, we knew you were not in the Phillipines, and we knew your email was 'hacked.' Regardless, what a horrible ordeal for you to experience. I'm glad you found how to restore your contacts. Thank you so much for sharing how to do that. I've saved that information in a folder I created on my hard drive titled Internet Info.

Glad that all's well now. XXXX

Daer Msrsha,
I'm so relieved you are not stranded....I was on my way to the bank! That has happened to me in the past, but the email that was sent to my contacts was a bit sexual in nature. I spent a few days sending apology emails to a few that I thought might be 'offended' by the content. It is a bit disconcerting.

Warmly, Kathleen
