    Sean sent me an email yesterday that said someone tried 5 times to sign on with my name & the wrong password. Their IP address is 75.177.98.182 .Has this happened to anyone else?
    What would be the benifits of hijacking my LS account?

    well, that doesn't necessarily mean someone was trying to "hack" into your account...someone may think (or thought) their user name was "bob" and tried several different passwords trying to login

    if not, then I agree, why would someone want to login as you :hammerhead:
     
  3. maybe they want to be Bob.
