  1. Hi Frank, I've been trying to get in touch with you via email and Twitter, not sure what the best way is to reach you. It would appear that your email has been hacked. I'm getting phishing emails from someone pretending to be you. Just sent your account an email saying that you had been hacked and I got a response full of basic grammar errors...probably not the response of a well-spoken former editor =). I'd recommend that you change your password, at the very least, if they haven't already changed it and locked you out.

  2. I'd also recommend that you delete this comment and the previous one after taking action so as to minimize the chance of further attacks. Best of luck!

  3. Frank: I just tried giving you a call. Your Gmail has been hacked and the hacker is even responding through your account.

  4. Hi earkslinni & Mr Champion,

    I opened an attachment "from Frank" and logged in to my Google account to supposedly read a Google document. As soon as I did it, I realized my probable error, logged out, logged back in, and changed my password, and left a voice message for Frank.

    Can either of you think of anything else I should do?
