From: TG View Contact
I'm writing this with tears in my eyes,my family and I came down here to London for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed,all cash,credit card and cell were stolen off me but luckily for me i still have my passports with me.
I've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not
helping issues at all and our flight leaves in less than 26 hrs from now but i have to make a settlement to the hotel bills.
i've having problems settling the hotel bills and th
I don't know what is happaning.They stated my text messages are permently shut down don't know company's name I think it was the adult sex toys.reaply stop work I don't know for yahoo
Sends repeated text messages, sometimes several per day.
said i recently ried to recover the password through my secret info for (first two letters of my first name) and a bunch of stars. said more info was as us.r.yahoo.com. didn't give me an option to opt out.
I know my password on yahoo. i never need the secret info. this stops now.
I just received a text message notifications 30 minutes ago from this number. It stated:
"Reset Your Yahoo! Password:
Yahoo! ID -
Code - [EDITED]
More info at - r.yahoo.com"
I know r.yahoo.com IS NOT a phishing web-site like some claim. It's a reputable site that directs you to a Yahoo Text Code verification screen. I knew I had my phone number associated with my Yahoo account so I attempted to recover my own password using the phone option to see if it was the same. Upon attempting the reset I received the EXACT same text message from the same number.
So in conclusion:
- 92500 is a reputable number associated with Yahoo
- The messages are not scams/fakes
- If you received a message mentioning resetting a password and you did not initiate it then someone else
In continuation since my post was cut-off...
- If you received a message mentioning resetting a password and you did not initiate it then someone else did.
For all of those who claimed to have their accounts hacked at one point in time after/before this, it's probably because someone was trying to obtain your password using this method. Using the password recovery option is one of the easiest methods of finding someones passwords, next to phishing, brute-forcing, social-engineering, and other malicious methods.
And the final continuation...
Just bare in mind that if someone did try to recover your password that they probably will try a few other methods so it may be wise to check your account and ensure your password, security question, and so forth are secure and not obvious. It's also wise to ensure your primary e-mail address password is not the same as other web-sites. Sometimes a password may be obtained for a web-site and from their the "hacker" will attempt other common web-sites with the same password.
Just got a text message saying my yahoo account password was needing a reset. Took a step out there and tried texting "STOP" and it said: "You will not receive Yahoo account alerts. Make sure you give us an alternate email or phone number to see account changes. r.yahoo.com has more info."
