When I got that e-mail, I was shocked. SHOCKED. Who on earth is trying to access to my account?
Yes, I have changed my password. Immediately.
To whoever’s doing this, there’s no point of you doing this to me. I don’t safeguard national secrets. I don’t date princes or presidents or even their peasants. I don’t have zillions of money hiding in the Caribbean. Heck, I haven’t even been to the Caribbean. Sounds like a nice place though.
Most importantly, I’m not even important!
Go find someone else that’s worth your effort, okay?
