As some readers are aware, Progressive Alaska and my gmail accounts were hijacked for a while this morning. A lot of friends - most of the people in my gmail directory - got requests for money, because I had "lost my wallet in London."
I'd love to be in London right now, but I'm sitting in my office in Anchorage.
Anyway, if anyone gets a message purporting to be from google stating that if you don't provide a lot of personal information - name, country of origin and account password - and then your gmail stops about 36 hours later (like mine did) - don't fall for it!
Special thanks from friends and colleagues who managed to either contact me, help get the word out, or who had suggestions.
