We found out from MySpace Abuse, MySpace Phishing And MySpace Tom (on different occasions). We took off all graphics and backgrounds and music-so, you can post comments now, just think it is sad that MySpace doesn't have some kind of anti-phishing/hacking program installed.

We have Internet Explorer 7 and it has phishing on it, but, it hasn't costed any 4 of the times.

That's really a shame. Sad Things like this are really annoying. Like when you get your wallet stolen and it takes you weeks to recover as you prance around town getting new cards and such. Such a pain.

We had neighbors who commited identity theft on MDH John in 1999 and we didn't even find out about it until we tried to get a loan in 2003-by then our neighbors were no where to be found-probably went back to Laos. Of course, we had to spend $$ on an attorney as those bone-heads had taken out 5 Verizon cellphones out and maxed them out.

WOW! That's a shame. I had my credit card number stolen and the people paid phone bills (2000 worth). Did the credit card or the phone company do anything....? No. I about lost it. I guess for them it's an easy write-off?

That is the pits Exclamation Twisted Evil Some real evil and mean people are out there. For more almost 20 years we lived in apartments and had to go to laundramats and a gang of Mexican Nationals came and bumped into MDH John while we were there and MDH John didn't even realize they had taken his wallet, driver's license, etc. such a pain in the bunions. We found out from our bank (ATM card was stolen)-that some people max out their credit cards and then report them as stolen Exclamation Exclamation Well, guess it takes all kinds. It appears, from news reports that 70+% of criminals are repeat offenders and keep doing these things over and over. Wish there were another form of punishment that would be sufficient to really teach people not to do this to each other.

Oh Holly, that is all so terrible! We had our phone acct. stolen and used by someone almost 24 hours a day for months, we reported it and it still kept being used. Thankfully we ended up not having to pay for any of it, because it was in the thousands. They said it could be used 24 hours a day because they gave the phone number to all their friends and relatives, a lot of the calls were out of the country. I was just mad that the phone company didn't put a halt to it right away, basically we all pay when things like that happen. You and John are such wonderful people it makes it even sadder that people would do things like this to you two.
