First of all, absolutely no one else uses my computer,
i live alone.

I went to sign into a yahoo account and the yahoo email
page opened up with another account! a name made up
out of numbers.

I found a bunch of these in the inbox,returned email:

<[email protected]>:
67.28.114.35 failed after I sent the message.
Remote host said: 554 delivery error: dd This user doesn't have a
yahoo.com account ([email protected]) [0] - mta124.mail.dcn.yahoo.com



(i use spyware,adaware,spybot,hijack,virus programs)

Did you disable remote access?

Not sure what "remote access" is. My computer is not connected
to any home network and not using anything wireless. (XP by the way)


i found all this stuff at the end of an email that was returned
(also, i have opened a thread once about having problens with my
yahoo emails being hacked)

So you have a firewall/Router and you've right clicked My Computer > Properties and selected the Remote Tab and ensured Remote Assistance is unchecked?

Try doing your AV and antispyware Scans in Safe Mode (Hit F8 while your comp is booting). It's the only way to remove bad things from your system after it's been infected, much higher chance of success at any rate of finding and removing unsafe files and programs.

[Edit] Sometimes returned emails aren't actually from your computer they could be a Virus or Spyware that is sending out and spoofing your email address from say, a friend's PC. [End Edit]

Hi sharky

This is what I got out of your message:
Dear Regions Bank /Bank Of the West/Peoples Bank Member
This email was sent by the
Regions Bank/Bank Of the West/Peoples’s Bank
Server to verify your
Email address. You must
Complete this process by clicking
On the link below and entering in
The small window your
Regions Bank/Bank Of The West /People’s Bank
ATM Debit-Card number and PIN
That you use on ATM.

This is done for your
Protection-because some of our
Members no longer have access to
Their email address and we
Must verify it.
To verify your email
Address and access your bank
Account click on the link
Below:

If you have Regions Bank
Account: [input] [input] If you have Bank
Of The West account: [input] [input] If you
Have People’s Bank account: [input] [input]
Are you able to read the email at all, or is it just gibberish?

This is too weird.
I just saw the same email in my Yahoo mailbox.

Obviously, a phishing scam going on here.

yes, i will copy and post here the emails that went out(might take from 1
hour to a day to post)!

the account had 5 undeliveable/returned emails in the account,nothing
else. the undeliverable message also said something like' could not
open the mailbox

the 5 returned emails had the email addresses they were sent to!

Was there anything under sent items though? Maybe ensure that option is checked. I just have a feeling it's not coming from your account though. I gather you changed the password?

the "sent" box had no emails.
the"trash"box had no emails
the "bulk" box had no emails
the "in" box had 5 undelivered email returns.

i since closed down the window so i have no access
to the account,but i did use software to capture the
email pages in the account.

i dont know if you read my other thread about not trusting
yahoo. i complained to yahoo of all problems with my email
accounts about 8 months ago(accts. i had since 1997) being
hacked or something..and yahoo closed my email accounts.

I still don't think it's hacked. It's probably someone has your email address somewhere on their computer and it's their computer that's being hacked and trojaned. I wouldn't worry too much about it as there is nothing you can do.

I get the occasional "undeliverable" messages to my email address, they normally contain the Netsky worm.
I believe the "undeliverable" part is the come on, to get you to open it.

i am dumbfounded what took place,its almost funny because
it reminds me of the days of telephone "party lines" when
people shared the same line. you pick up the ringing phone
and its for the other person who shares the line. i open my
email and its someone else's email account (again no one
else uses my computer).

if anyone from techguy,senior members want to email me
to my techguy email for more info,its ok(might take a day
or a week to get back).
