Beware the E-PersonationThe Tatong Tattler email a/c has been Spoofed (not hacked).
Malware hijacks the address list from some recipient's email, and passes itself on pretending to be "Tatong Tattler".
Spoof email will have "TatongTattler" before the "@" but come from a different domain; it tends to contain "Hi!" then a NASTY link.
Note: An email with brief impersonal text then and a link, is ALWAYS suspicious.
Also: using BCC when sending group emails avoids this happening. But it does prevent using "Reply All".
