I keep getting emails that are clearly scams asking me for $2000, I have no clue how these people even get my email, has anyone else experienced this? Can you report it to someone?

Scammers hacked my husband's hotmail and sent out a mass email saying he was stranded at a hotel in London, robbed of his wallet, and no way to get back home. "He" needed $1200 wired to Western Union. I told "him" I wired $3000 to the HSBC just around the corner from "his" hotel, so he would have to pick it up there instead. Those scammers were begging for me to wire it to Western Union. lol

I got an email like this only it was allegedly coming from my son...who was sitting in our living room.  All it really takes is for the scammers to purchase or hack an email list, just up your spam filter.

Same exact thing happened to my friend last month, but she was supposedly in Manilla.

Look for the yahoo 'contact us' or the equal to that. You can forward them the email and they can make the freaky emails stop. I had to do something similar when my husband was deployed the last time.
