Phished & Being Hacked into?? Help

Before I go any further I am not asking about how to hack into someone myspace, I could care less. But I need some help here.

Last night I get onto my myspace page & I received a memo from *Tom* saying that my page was blocked because I had been phished. (Has this happened to anyone else??) I had to click on a link to send me an email to set up a new myspace password before I could do anything at all. Which I did, new password got back on finally. But I changed the password once more i got on. Everything seems to be back up & running. But the odd thing about this is the fact that I never clicked on anything to be phished in the first place.....So how was I phished??

So now my cousin gets on her myspace this afternoon, and everything is gone. THe background the pictures , it's blank & she has been working all morning to get her webpage blank, but it's still acting funny. No clue why?? Was she hacked into?? She's changed her password twice today.....

So there you have it, has this been happening to anyone else on here??

oh you were sooo phished!!  there are ways to know if Tom actually sent you that email...when you entered a knew password you should be able to see http://login.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=login.process&.... in the address box..if you don't see that then it is a dummy website used to get user's passwords...your cousin might have to get a new profile...

  But here's the thing about it. I had never clicked anything before hand. I go in & theres a memo from Tom saying that my account had been frozen. Well I have seen many phishing schemes out there so I tried to edit my profile ignoring what the memo had said. I could not do anything my account was frozen until i changed that stupid password. Believe me I tried it.

  So what I did was change my password to get back in & once my account was unfrozen i changed my password to something different just in case I was being phished.

  But there was no comments from me posted, no bulletins, no nothing ever just a frozen account!!

hey there. i've seriously been out of the loop the past month. house guests that made a vacation out of it! (eeks!!). anyway, i too received the "you've been phished" message from tom just moments ago. wtf? is it safe then and legit? should i comply and provide a new password?

thank you so kindly for your forthcoming response.

I've had the message from Tom just last week saying I was phished. I changed my password and the message kept popping up...Guessing it may have gotten stuck up there due to a glitch, but it did stop after about an hour. I went to someone's website on myspace that had an overlay to get your password, I didn't let the overlay load all the way, but I still had to change my password.

What is your defintion of blank? Is it showing the usual myspace layout? Is the "about me" and such showing and there's just not writing there or is it showing a gray page? Mine has been showing a gray page lately when I go to it. I've noticed it doing this on a few other people's profiles I visit too. Sometimes I have to reload a few times before it shows up. If it is showing the "About Me" and everything, just not the stuff she put on, is she putting up any stuff that someone might report to myspace and that they would remove? Not sure what to tell you about your cousin. I'm sure one of the more experienced people on here might be able to help with that.

what you should do is log out then log back in...there are so many different ways for people to get your info...what you described sounds like one of them...
