It's NOT someone spoofing me, for one I am the "to" recipient and everyone else is bcc'd. I just put a new contact in my Yahoo address book last night and when I logged on this morning I found the new address added to the others the spam was sent to. This address has NEVER been added to any email I have sent to multi addresses. This isn't the first time this has happened BUT it had started happening after I dropped Norton for McAfee. I'm frustrated beyong all belief. I've spent at least an hour discussing, on the phone, my problem with someone I had a hard time understanding and communicating with. She promised to send me an email with something to try but it never came. She also wanted to provide me a phone conversation with a tech...for an additional $90...why the hell do I have McAfee, I THOUGHT it was supposed to protect me from this stuff?? I was a bit skeptical when she checked my subscription through my email address but when I had to LATER tell her what it was, she kept misunderstanding me. Next was an online back and forth with a tech who I allowed into my computer and I guess he found nothing. He sent me a handful of links to run through, I got through half of them and have given up in frustration. I'm ready to bag McAfee but don't want to lose my money, I've had it about 3 months. If they want to refund me ALL my money, I'll take it in an instant.
When I run a scan it says my computer is hunky-dory and I'm protected...yeah, right...but why is this happening to my address book? I don't open mail from people I don't know and I don't go and click on random links. I thought McAfee INSTANTLY could stop things like this happening, that is why I bought it...Norton seems to say it can but I don't want to get sucked in to more software that will later prove not to live up to it's promises.
I exclusively run FireFox 3.6.12, Yahoo is the current updateand the McAfee package I have is Total Protection as well as the free diagnostic downloads.
This is an embarrassment to me, I wouldn't forward this type of link to the products it directs you to...think I have good reason to be frustrated?????
