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!)

  2. I am happy to hear that ya were no mugged in London and everything was false ^_^ *is currently readin’ Passion as I surf the web in the process*

  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?

  4. omg i actually replied to that email…. i said i’d donate money and vivos
    omg i kinda also gave out some of my details.

  5. Hey Mrs. Kate! I also got that email….I’m glad I found out soon that it was some hacker..I’m sorry about that …I too was about to reply back …..Glad you got your email & stuff back!

  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. I got one of those and I could tell it wasn’t you. That really sucks. Still a huge fan!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. 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. :>)

  10. 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 (:

  11. 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*

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

    FALLEN WAS AMAZING!

  20. 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:)

  21. I LOVE YOU!!! YOU ARE THE BEST AUTOR EVER FELL IN LOVE WITH FALLEN AFTER THE FIRST CHAPTER I GOT PASSION THE FIRST DAY IT CAME OUT! I CANT WAIT FOR RAPTURE!
