For all I know, I have relatives in the US.

Odds are, a fair number of us have relatives in your neck of the woods.

They added a different e-mail for the notifications, so if I change something they will get an e-mail. I had a whole bunch of important e-mails I was keeping. Darn, darn, darn. I am so mad; did I tell you how mad I am right now?
A techie friend told me one day, that most hackers go for the contact list in your email account. To prevent this from happening make your first contact a phony one such as az36zAk0e89s1. Something that makes no sense at all. Just make sure it always begin with the letter "a". Since almost all email accounts have the first name listed starting with "A". Whether it be the first name or the last. Once they are into your email account, it is easy to get into the rest.

There were very few contacts, as I've been using other accounts, but still.

If you really want to know, read the ingredients on the package.

Reading the ingredients=TMI. If you like hot dogs Kylie, don't read the list! Unless you buy the good ones like Applegate Farms. They're ingredient list isn't scary.
