Outgoing Council Woman's E-Mail Compromised

Outgoing Greenville Council Woman Mildred Council says someone has hacked into her personal e-mail account and is sending out correspondence asking for money claiming to be her.

Council tells WITN she considers what's being done a crime and has reported it to Greenville Police.

The hacker sent out e-mail from Council's hotmail account claiming she was in England, misplaced her wallet, and needed money sent to her to get back home.

Council has not been able to log onto her account but has been trying to contact people to let them know the e-mail is fake.

Council says the whole thing has been a pain. When asked if she thought someone deliberately targeted her, or if she was a random victim, Council said she could not answer that question.

    I believe that she did this herself to draw more attention to her. If anyone saw her on her last council meeting then you know she likes to blow her own horn and pat herself on the back. Truthfully she has not done a darn thing for most of the poularity of Greenville.
