As side not this is why it's important to use different passwords at different sites. When they obtain the data from one site they have associated username, password and email address. Off to the email account to try the password there. They get into your email account and all kinds of bad things can happen. Find out what bank you use and they try the username and password there.

that's all good advice. I only used that email for writing friends and Monster. I don't use for any other accounts. I have a password service that creates new passwords for all my accounts. Even I don't know my passwords because they are too long and involved.
