1. A hacker can get into a public email account (yahoo, hotmail, mail.com, etc) and change your password and then you can never get in and they have access to all of your emails and your contacts
Verify this: It happened to my friend. The hacker emailed all of her friends (I got one) and asked for money, claiming to have left a wallet somewhere.
What to do: see #1
2. A hacker can get into your paypal account and make a payment online using your money
Verify this: It happened to me
What to do: Change your password frequently. Don’t go to paypal through any email. Don’t write your password down on your computer or use the remember feature. Call your bank immediately if it happens.
3. A hacker can use your FB account to email all your FB “friends” asking for emergency money and make it look like it is from you
Verify this: It happened to someone I know… the hacker received money from her friends and she had to figure out what to do… she is no longer using FB
