    Thank you. I fell for this because the sender was a person who actually writes a bit like the hackers did.

    After a friend got the spam message from he called and I changed my password and added the two-stage Google security for good measure.

    I noticed that all my mail from those who got the message has been going directly to my trash (hoping I will not find it).

    But by checking my trash I have been able to respond to my friends and apologize for the phishing spam. Does Google allow me to restore my contacts?

    I just had the same experience as many who commented below. I did not enter information, I changed my password, but every contact was sent this e-mail. Also, most of my contacts were deleted from my contact file, which represents many hours of work. QUESTION: Can I restore my contact list? If so, how?

      I'm also a victim. My contacts were mostly deleted too. My email browser is Outlook and under the "People" and then "Manage" tabs, there is an option to "restore deleted contacts." I clicked on it and my contacts were restored. There is a 30 day time limit to do the restoration. Good luck. I hope you can do what I did.

      FYI, if this happens to you, go to your Trash folder, all incoming email will be going there.

      Then go to settings and delete any rules such as "delete all email with .com"

    This just happened to me. I stupidly fell for this, and the spam email was automatically sent to all contacts of mine through a bot.

    Please kindly review the important document i uploaded for you on google secured drive. Click here

    The same thing happened to me. I received the email last week from a colleague. I tried to open it from my phone, then my tablet and eventually my pc. Two weeks later i.e. yesterday, this email was sent out from my personal address to ALL the contacts I've ever been in touch with on that email address. It went on to post itself as a status message on my FB page and I had friends on FB telling me they cant open the documents. I've changed my password, including the secret question and set up a two step verification access. What does this kind of hacking mean for any other accounts that I've registered under this email address e.g. bank accounts, social networking sites, job sites etc.

        If you were able to change your password, then everything is ok.
