I was taking the kids to school yesterday when I received a text.
(Please note: I did not check said text until I was stopped at a red light. Really.)
I noticed that it was sent from my gmail address. My. Gmail. Address.
The body of the text? A link. Along with a request to send a picture of my daughter.
Now, if you were me, what would you be thinking?
That's what I thought, too.
I could not get to my office fast enough to delete my Google account. My gmail. My Google docs. My calendars. And...my blog.
Then I spent the better part of 2 1/2 hours starting up a new Google account. Including a new blog page.
I shared my experience with my wife when we both got home.
She said, "I got the same text, too!"
I was pretty certain I had smelled out the hacker and stopped a certain cyber-stalker.
That is, until...
My daughter heard me describing this. She said, "I tried to message you to send me a picture that was on that website."
I deleted my account...my gmail...my documents...my calendar...and my blog with all of its posts...to prevent myself from further hacking from some cyber-stalker: my daughter.
Sigh...sometimes, you just gotta laugh.
I hope this helps you do that.
