Has my email address been hacked?

Episode 1311 (1:01:04)

Matt from Sacramento, CA

Matt has a friend who uses Yahoo exclusively and his account has been compromised. Leo says bounce backs happen to all of us. It's called spam scatter. Spammers don't use their return address -- they spoof it with someone else's address. He just got his email selected by the spammer and there's nothing he can do about it. The good news is that sooner or later, they'll move on to a different address.
