Share this post

The email addresses of at least three elected officials out of Lake County have reportedly been hacked, with thousands of people getting messages from them saying they're stuck in the Philippines and need money to get home. Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr, and state representatives Linda Lawson of Hammond and Shelli VanDenburgh of Crown Point are all on each other's email contact lists. VanDenburgh tells the Times the problems for her started earlier this week when she clicked on a link sent from an email that looked like it was from Yahoo, then noticed in an email she got that the fake Yahoo had two exclamation points.
