telling me log into my account on market place and redo a image on it or my whole shop would be deleted
dum fuckin hackers that avatar account has'nt got a online shop
never respond to second life emails
always go via the main web site and contact them if your worried about some correspondence they may or probally didnt send
anyway heres some handy sites for safety
PwnedList - Have your online accounts been compromised? PwnedList is an easy-to-use service with a robust database containing information that hackers and malicious programs have released publicly.
Just enter an email address you use for an online account. If your email address is in the database, PwnedList will let you know and help you secure your compromised accounts before you become a fraud victim.
Health & Human Services - In recent years, hackers have stolen more than 21 million medical records from nearly 500 U.S. medical providers. Is yours one of them?
Find out in this comprehensive database of medical breaches. You can search by company name and it will tell you the number of people affected and the circumstances surrounding the breach.
AccountKiller - One way to avoid information leaks is to shut down online accounts you no longer need. That's often easier said than done.
This site has instructions for deleting accounts from most major Web services. It also tells you how hard it is to shut down accounts on major services. Check it before you sign up for new accounts.
Glassboard - Facebook, Google+, Twitter and other social media sites are all great for sharing, but not for privacy. You have to constantly be on your guard and keep an eye on your account settings.
Glassboard is a social network without all the worry. It's private from beginning to end so you only share what you want with who you want.
