I am beyond upset. What is going on in Cyberspace Security today? In the last two weeks I've had two different issues with my Yahoo account. The first one was I selected certain people to send an email to and it sent it to my whole darn contact list.
The second issue is apparently at 6:54 pm some stupid IPAD application sent this out claiming it was from me!!!! Look my email is the sender!!! What the heck??? I was napping at the time. I would never send this crap to my friends. I wouldn't wish Spam on someone I disliked!!

I NEVER SENT THAT!!! How embarrassing for people to receive some crap like that with my name on it. This should be illegal. I've seen this happen on FACEBOOK too. Where it says "hey check out this video", win an IPAD, etc.
I am beyond pissed off! And if anyone received this.. my apologies! I am just so sick of spam, and they've taken it to a whole new level using my name in it! I will not let this slide!
