Hello,

This is likely email spoofing, but I would recommend you run a malware scan on your computer and reset your Homestead email password.

I'm having the same issue.  I received a first, and now a second hacker email (about 4 days ago), from what appears to be my own email account.

Hello,

This is called email spoofing and it is a common trick for spammers. I would recommend the same steps for you.

Run a malware scan on your computer and reset your Homestead email password.
