      Thomas,

      You aren't the only one hit by this. See, for example,
      http://www.cnn.com/2010/OPINION/03/28/greene.email.scam/index.html

      The reporter's talk with an FBI agent about the scam is on the third page.

      >> Are you sure they hacked-hacked your account and are not just masquerading as you or forging your account? I've seen a lot of this on various groups - I don't think Yahoogroups checks for anything but the From: address before passing the email to the group so it's possible that someone may have just forged the From: address and sent it on. I may test that on one of my groups from one of my unsubscribed email accounts to be sure. If that's the case fortunately there's no actual hacking going on and your personal emails are save, but unfortunately there's nothing that can really be done about it except to delete the phishing attempts and giggle about the futility of their attempts.
