I had setup a test directory a long time ago to test something. I abandoned it but didn’t delete the directory. Well recently that directory was hacked and someone used my site to redirect people to a fake bank website. The test directory was deleted upon find this but it was too late. This caused hundreds of people to view my post Testing The Genuineness. I got several comments from the hundreds of people that clicked on the link.
The emails did not come from me or my server. They were just using my site to redirect to another location.
Be careful when clicking on emails that claim to come from your bank. It is always best to go straight to your bank’s website.
