spam RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today, I noticed that a company called from Taipie City, Taiwan with host server Contact Privacy Inc. Customer 0126702367, 96 Mowat Ave, Toronto, On M6K 3M1, Canada had used my email account to send spam to people in my address book yesterday, 9/5/2011. Do I need to let Microsoft know and if so how? Do I need to create a new email account or can I do something to keep this compnay form sending more spam? Should I contact those in my address book to let them know that this email was not from me? Thanks for your help.

  • Most likely the company you are mentioning is not using your email address to send spam. What might be hapenning is that you got a virus, spyware or adware which is doing this. Look into your sent folder and take a look to the time the emails were sent and if they match the exact time when you were using your computer then voila, you got a virus.
