Disney Destinations Hacked...

Were you involved in this hacking??  I got this email from Disney Destinations on Sunday night.  Today I got similar emails from Target and Walgreens.  I guess we all need to be careful when we open email from untrusted sources.  Sad.

Disney Destinations


  1. I've gotten 5 emails from companies, including Disney, so far. I guess I will just have to be extra careful.

  2. We have gotten several from all different companies too. There are some people out there with much too much time on their hands. Why don't they get out there and do something productive and use their "talents" to help people in need?

  3. Yes me too. 4 emails so far including Disney Destinations. Bakes me scared to check my email now.

    I am now following you also. I am a big Disney Fan and have quite a few Disney related posts.
