Two separate online email accounts (Hotmail then Gmail) of my wife's have been broken into within six months. Each time the hijacker changes the password, sends a message to the contact list asking for some emergency money, then deletes the contact list. Any idea why my wife would be targeted? And what should she do to protect herself from now on?
