A Quick Note on Being Hacked

My email account was hacked on Friday and as a result many of you got a strange email from me saying that I was mugged in London and needed cash. I’m fine! Please don’t send money! This was a false email from the hacker!

I’ve reclaimed my accounts now and everything is back under control. BUT the worst part is that my entire email archive was wiped out. I say this because many of you have written me through this website or through my direct email account and I have lost all record of it. Which means if you have written to me in the past week or two and are waiting on a response from me, please write again! I’m sorry for the confusion and delay but I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for your support (and the very nice outpouring of offers to help in case I really had been in trouble!)

  3. Dear Lauren kate I just finished reading PASSION your third novel and it inspired me that I was near tears when I finished the novel infact all your series FALLEN ,TORMENT AND PASSION have inspired me heaps. I cant wait to read RAPTURE your final novel – it has already started to tease my mind. Do you think that in real life I could dance in the night sky wrapped in an angels arms like Lucinda Price with Daniel Gregory because that is my wish and dream?

  6. hi lauren

    i was also one of the individuals to recieve the email, i knew it was a fake right away, so i deleted it, but i also came on the site to check & make sure you were alright.

  7. I found mine today. Knew it was bogus. Sorry that someone hacked you. I don’t get why people do stuff like this. I feel awful for any of your fans who may have sent money. Hope they find the culprit. On page 204 of Passion btw, and loving every minute!

  8. My email account was hacked in November last year. I can sympathize with you because it is a real pain especially when they take all your contacts information and you are left with nothing. Our local sheriff’s office and Scotland Yard tried to locate them but it is a scam that has been going on for many years. I was supposedly in Glassgow Scotland. Any one that knew me wondered how on earth I got there since I don’t have a passport. :>)

  9. I figured that much. I replied but didn’t send any money. Glad to hear you’re okay and I can’t wait to start reading Passion (:

  10. I got the email too. I recognized it as a scam (I deleted it) and wrote to you on Facebook to let you know, and just checked your blog and saw this. I’m glad everything is okay now. *hugs*

  11. OMG! It took me about 7 days to read Tournament and Passion. THE BEST BOOKS EVER!

  18. Lauren I’m a 31 year old mom who has a daughter that is near 12. She recently decided that she would like to read the Fallen series. I being a busy single mom get to read about 1-2 books a year. I thought I’d read the first book to make sure it was age appropriate. Little did I know that I was going to fall in love with the series and couldn’t put them down til I read all 3 in a week. Being so busy with work and mom duties I found time at nights and every spare time I had. I want to thank you so much for writing these books and inspiring me to take a moment for me. I can’t wait for the fourth book and all your other books. On one last note if you ever have time to come north, redding ca, please have a signing for our small town I know everyone would come:)
