has someone got into my email?

  dinglewolves 18:11 14 Apr 2008

today i logged into my hotmail account and there were loads of dodgy emails saying thanks for subscribing to these websites, one of which said i registered at 00.53am (when i was soundly tucked up in bed...) does this mean someone has hacked into my email account? i am worried as i did have some personal emails from uni and stuff like amazon emails in there....

any help would be much appreciated x x x

Most likely spam, designed to get you to investigate and/or visit a site. Change your password.

Possibly but probably not unless of course someone else has access to your pc were they in your junk mail folder or properly addressed to you .Whatever you do dont click on anything within them just delete them

i have just done, changed all of my passwords for accounts with amazon, ebay etc.... was a bit shocked as i have never ever had spam with hotmail before...
