You can't do anything anymore, they got the emails already. the only thing is to deny deny deny! you don't know anything about any pharmacy ;) but you should change the password and probably not use the email anymore.

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," "chris9441@yahoo.com."
  • 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 "chris9441@yahoo.com," 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 "chris9441@yahoo.com" 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.

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.

My name is Nick Felix email is nicknickfelix@aol.com a carlyn courtny is advertising over and over????I do not know this person and need him deleted from my face book PLEASE


This type of mail which is advertising and bothering you again and again is called "SPAM" or sometimes they are called "JUNK MAIL". In yahoo mail its refered to as spam and if you have an hotmail account they are called Junk mail. Since you are using AOL I am sure that you will be having something same written on a tab like Spam mail, junk mail or garbage mail etc. Just select the mail message that is bothering you and click on the tab that says Spam or Junk mail and this person or any automated email will not be able to bother you again. All the future mails and the mail you selected to spam will go to Junk or spam folder.

Good Luck!

I cannot get into my mail. I finnaly got it open and it wouldn'yt let me open any e-mails on ebaysremax@yahoo.com


The most common cause of email problem is that your Internet Service Provider has set up some junk mail filters that are blocking these emails. Your ISP will need to review what SPAM filters they have set. Usually the cause of the problem is that successful auctions have End of Auction notices that are sent to more than one person. SPAM software detects this as spam and removes it. End of Auction notices can be sent from a few email addresses from eBay. Here are some of them:
endofauction@ebay.com
endoftransaction@ebay.com
aw-confirm@ebay.com
You need to ask your ISP to check if they are blocking these email addresses. Users might also have set up filters through their own email programs, and they will have to check these as well. Another options may be to set up a different email address using an anonymous email address or other ISP.
