Today I could not log into my hotmail, and I got calls from lots of friends and family after an email was sent to them saying I was stranded in London having lost all my credit cards and cash, and please send me $2500. Sounds a lot like those "oh dear, I am pathetic in [Your Country Here]; send me money and I will be eternally grateful" sort of things. The only difference is it mashed up with a HUGE email hacking scheme. See it here, thanks to Osprey.
The most important point is, change your passwords NOW, and don't use the same one for everything you do.

This got me a lot of attention from friends and family, but I would prefer to get attention in other ways!
