ive been getting loads of messages from ppl in my address book that ive been sending them spam. someone reported it to AOL and now they think im some crazy person who isnt following the laws of AOL and will b kicked out and my email account will b closed.
What do I do abt this??

It's quite simple. Someone has hacked into your account and is spamming your list of friends. Change your password immediately.

AOL has gone viral or something. My AOL account that's been unused for YEARS has been doing this. I just now chapped that I notified you as well (didn't chap it was you) about this. I just deleted all the contacts from my aol address book and it stopped (my AOL account was sending spam from my address book and sending it to my new address as well, so I know it stopped).

My mom had this problem with her AOL account. She changed her password and has been ok since.

Good Luck

It asked me for a new security question and I created one.

Also, maybe change your passwords on your other email addresses (if you use the same name, such as clarivka@gmail.com because they might be able to hack those too.

I am NOT saying this as someone who knows how it works, but I did it for my own accounts just to be cautious.

Oh my word, it happened to me, too.
Etiquette question: must I now send an apology and explanation to all the ppl who got a spam email from my account, or should I just ignore all the emails they're sending me saying "I got this weird email from you"?

I think you need to let them know it's spam and there's a mistake.

its not just AOL. I used to have hotmail but it sent one too many spam emails and a friend of mine emailed hotmail to complain and it was closed down. now I have yahoo and BH it has not happened yet.
