    Gmail sent me a notification last night congratulating me about my new mail account (wb5tht@gmail.com). Problem is I didn't create this and I have no idea how it got linked to my recovery email account (non-gmail account.) I think I did create wb5tht@yahoo.com a long time ago just to keep scammers from using that address.

    Anyway I very rarely sell anything online and if you see any activity with wb5tht@gmail.com, please be careful, it's not me.

    Put a disclaimer in your qrz bio page. Check your computer for malware. Change passwords. Enable 2FA on QRZ.com. Do you have any gmail accounts?

    I do have a gmail account with a strong password. I will update my bio page, thanks for the suggestion. PC is very well protected but I'll run another scan.
