I have been phished and can't adjust settings without them being sent to an automatic redirected site

Posted

opened an email over a month ago from a friend. I got phished. Two days ago they sent the same email under my address and conversed with the recipients, impersonating me to assure them it was safe and give further instruction. The have also tried to gain further access info to one of my credit cards. I have changed my password, but when I attempt to secure it Firefox notifies me the information will automatically be redirected to a site. can't perform the administration.

Contact you local and state law.

Think about closing that e-mail and create another.

Check your computer programs folder for unknown programs.
