Thank-you, Ron. It does make you realize that old email addresses, which are unsupervised by nature of them being unused, are attractive targets for hackers who I am told use them for at least 2 different purposes:
1. They use them to send spam email, often not merely selling things, but trying to defraud the recipients. Since the email address on first examination points to someone other than them, and is unsupervised by the original real owner, they have way more time to run the fraud until someone figures out they stole an email address
2. They look for email addresses that are, or were, tied to PayPal, as this under the right conditions enables them to "intercept" payments sent to those email addresses.
Everyone rest assured, my CURRENT PayPal address, "JimGnitecki@gmail.com", is completely safe.
Stay away from that old "msn" address. I long ago purged it from this ad, but some folks are still finding it, about 5 years later, in 5 year old posts I did on the forum. I can't possibly find and edit all this old posts, so if ordering the e-book, just use the current "gmail" based email address in my actual ad and everything will be fine.
