So last week I woke up and when I went to check my email I was logged out, which was unusual.
I reset my email password so I could log in as I couldn't remember it. When I checked my emails, there was one requesting a Dropbox password reset, which I hadn't requested. Upon further investigation lots of people had their dropbox account hacked as well as their email.
I deleted my Dropbox account and I thought I was ok. Until today I've checked my email and received a delivery fail for a few emails I didn't send. I have checked my bin and have discovered a handful of scam emails that I did not send.
These are what the messages say:

Hello. Yes, I have followed the instructions. I try to remember to scan through my emails to weed out spam and potential scammers. I’ve had my same email for about 9 years now. I’m writing down the only sites or businesses I deal with the most and updating my email to something else and gradually transferring from my original email to where I can delete the account.
