How do I un-hijack my email account


We have received two emails addressed to us, with attachments, that have the sender as Azbentons. How can we receive emails that have our email address as the sender? We have immediately deleted these, especailly since they have attachments. We figure it must be some type of spam/scam. Our email doesn't have the A capitalized.

Any comments?

Well MS Benton

That is exactly what happens There actually is a way that people can steal your email address and send you stuff from it It’s called hijacking You should run an antivirus scan And any ad remover software you might have if you don’t you can get track zapper or adaware which have free downloadable ones Get one update it and run it on your computer.

What you should also do is change your password and notify your internet service provider.
