    Yay! Post 100.

    All I have to offer is the story that my adwords account was hacked to the tune of over 5g last week! It is finally getting resolved today.

    It's a jungle out there my friends! Be very careful.

    I am having an apple martini to celebrate the moment.

    A prosperous year to you all.

    I have a feeling I did something stupid and clicked on an email I thought came from adwords.

    Never click on those emails. Open a new tab in your browser.

    Same with ebay, or anything you have a real account with.

    As a precaution I will open a second business account so if shennanigans like this ever appear again I will have a back up account in place.

    I feel like some one was peeking in on me naked body or something.

    Dirty bastards.

    They were playing with 6 dollar clicks too. Way too much for my blood.

    I go for organic now anyway, and should just close all my accounts. dunno.

    Amen. I never click on links sent to me like that, I always open up a new tab and go directly to the site to login, and I tell my family and friends that is the best thing to ALWAYS do.

    Sorry you got hacked man, that sucks. :(
