    I just received this email:

    HTML:
    Hi there J,
    Im writing just to inform you that you might need to change all your passwords ,including important ones such as Paypal, ebay, gmail ...And also delete the directory on your website (i suppose) called My RoboForm Data .
    Sooner or later someone will abuse your accounts and get you in trouble.
    
    btw nice photos on facebook.
    
    Regards.
    Nasser Salah.
    
    Anyone know if this is some kind of joke or serious?? Kind of freaked me out! Any suggestions to what I should do?

    Do you really have the folder called "My RoboForm Data"?
    This could be a prank done by a friend of your who had access at your computer and saw that folder.
    Or... have you shown anyone screenshots with your desktop/etc?

    Nasser seems or wants to be a honest man. Reply to him and ask where does he know all of this and if he is hones he will tell you.

    Have you downloaded anything lately ? might be some virus on your computer which he can get your MSN and such , i would not suggest you to change those passwords at your own computer, might be a trick to you type them so he can have them, as if you have not went places he says he can't have them.

    If you do actually have that folder then it sounds like you just got a friendly visit from a White Hatter and you should count yourself as very lucky. It wouldn't hurt to change all your passwords

    Ok I asked and he told me where he found the passwords. Can't believe how stupid I was!!
    Kovah I think you might be right, I hope so anyway. Changing all the passwords now. I'm sure he's already taken whatever information he needs though!
