Today someone hacked into the work email for Perry Hall Florist, PerryHallFlorist@yahoo.com and sent all of my contacts a notice that said I was in the Phillipines and needed $1700.00 to come home. If that was not bad enough they somehow managed to erase all of my contacts so that I could not inform them of the hoax. Not only were my contacts were erased but also all of my messages. I called the baltimore county police but they said that this is not considered a crime. Is it time to change some laws that would keep up with the technology? They might not feel that this is a crime, but I feel that stealing peoples' information and using it with out permission is a crime. Just like when a wallet is stolen I have been spending hours trying to get the word out and let everyone know. The new email for us is PerryHallFlorist@gmail.com
Meanwhile to our lawmakers---it's time to battle the technology crimes!
