Sorry for jumping to conclusions!
I called Tom after Rita's e-mail got spammed, and they had lost all the e-mail addresses and contacts in their e-mail account. I don't know if that's what happened to Janet, too, or not, but a member of our local iris club recently lost all the contacts in her account due to a scammer, too -- and she had that account for 15 years.
So no-one is safe? How should any of us protect our accounts from getting scammed?

In this case it is not a password issue. The spammer simply found that Janet's email address could send mail through iris-photos and forged a message address field to look like it came from her.

Yes, Loic, as well as our friend Mary Lou, too!
Maybe EVERYONE on the list should consider changing e-mail passwords, me included!
Would our tekkies out there agree?

there is a spam using Janet Smith's identity, saying she's stuck in London and needs money.
The same spam we got last year using Rita Gromley ID.
