You have been "spoofed". Contact Yahoo immediately and explain to them what happened. I would deactivate that account and create another.

How to stop coming mail from vigra every day iam getting more then 10 messages regarding vigra drugs only in my spam

At the bottom of every spam email is usually a link to "opt out". If you click that link and follow the instructions you will eventually stop getting them. It is time consuming and you may have to do it serveral times but it does work

Someone has hacked my e-mail and is sending my contacts e-mails like they are coming from me. What can I do?

You have to report the error to the company hosting the email, for eg. Yahoo or Hotmail. You can do this by creating a new email and writing them a mail. Or go through their main webpages and click on the contact us tab.

good luck

Some one have used my email address to send advertisement to me, how can this happen and how to fixe this.

First, change the password on your email address. something "strong"...use capital and lowercase letters and numbers (XxX123ZzZ)

It sounds like someone signed up for a website/service that sends advertisements to your email address. The advertisements probably have the name of the site sending them. You might be able to go to that site and discontinue your account there.
You can also block future advertisements using filters (assuming all the advertisements have something in common...who sent it, subject, etc)
In the upper-right corner of your Yahoo! Mail page, click the Options link, then select Mail Options from the menu.
On the left side of the page, click the Filters link.
On the top of the Filters page, click the Add Filter button.
A page appears where you can define the rule and the destination for the new filter.
Type a unique name for the new filter in the Filter Name box, such as "advertisements"
Define one or more rules for the filter.
  • From header-Who sent the message.
  • To/CC header-Who the message is addressed to.
  • Subject-The subject text.
  • Body-The message or body text.
From the Move to Folder pull-down list, choose the destination folder where you want the message to go (probably SPAM)
  • Contains-the area must contain the target text. For example, the target text "Chris" would match all the following: "School project on Christopher Columbus," "I forgot to call Chris," ""
  • Does not contain-the area must not contain the target text. (This is a negative condition.) For example, the target text "Chris" would match any area that does not contain "Chris."
  • Begins with-the area must contain the target text at the beginning. For example, the target string "Chris" would match "," but not "School project on Christopher Columbus" or "I forgot to call Chris."
  • Ends with-the area must contain the target text at the end. For example, the target string "Chris" would match "I forgot to call Chris," but not "" or "School project on Christopher Columbus."
Click the Save Changes button to save the filter.

In the worst case you can just get a new email address and tell your contacts about it.

Spam emails are sent to all the persons in my yahoo adressbook. The email contains some weblinks whic advertise "My Canadian Pharmacy" which sell some sexual drugs.

I had this same exact problem! I copied all of my contacts down and deleted them from my yahoo account. Also when you go to send an email it will ask you if you want to automatically add all sent to messages to your contact list, say no. I havent heard of anymore of these emails being sent out since I deleted my contacts, I let yahoo know by email what was going on, I would recommend that you do the same. This is a privacy issue.

I tried to set up an account in fb and it sent out an e-mail to EVERYONE in my e-mail contacts with a vigra link!!!!!!!!!!! How did this happen?: It went to my preacher, ex-bosses, co-workers, etc. I am so...

Are you SURE that you signed-up with the REAL F.B. site, and not a "spoof" site?

The "spoof" site would capture your ID/password, and then use your ID to send E-mail to all your "contacts".

Change your passwords.

Alert your bank that you are a victim of "identity theft", and need to have a "watch" put onto your account.

I think my e-mail account may have been compromised, Messages with attachments, not from me, ate being sent to my contact list

Yes, there's a lot of this happening. If you can still get into your account, change the password, and make it something unusual, not a standard dictionary word which can be easily cracked. Make it a combination of letters and numbers, eg v1de0 instead of video, and a longer password is better.
