A Yahoo account was hacked. Let's assume it was called
firstname.lastname@example.org and that the victim also has another email
The guy who hacked the Yahoo email ID stole the contact list, and created
email@example.com and began sending scam email to the contact list. What to do about it?
Say my email is
firstname.lastname@example.org, a hacker created
email@example.com, and began sending scams to my contacts.
I do know the email account that the hacker created, it's a Gmail account, but can't report phishing or spam cause he didn't send me a copy (reporting emails in Gmail is only an option if you receive a spam email. You cannot report a spam email that never contacted you).
And my contacts won't report him cause they think it's me, they won't notice
firstname.lastname@example.org, they won't notice the difference, also the hacker is using my profile picture as a profile picture for the scam Gmail.
