false addresses of people in my address book

Just received several emails from people in my address book, whose accounts were hacked years ago. Blacklisted them and haven't had any of them for a long time. Why might they be starting again?

Re: false addresses of people in my address book

Are these emails delivered to your Spam folder?

They might be starting up again because the miscreant:

  • is not seeing returns (financial gains) so switched to a new batch of email addresses
  • is hoping that with the passage of time the recipient might be caught of guard
