I did a little more research today and i came across a handful of these scam reports, and they seem to match up almost the same way as mine..
Here's the link to the FTC ( Federal Trade Commission ) where you can read more..

This makes me feel more at ease, but i still have to go thru a ton of password changes,, at least the ones that use the password they posted.
Yeah, I know what you mean.
When I'm dealing with sites that want me to sign up, or register with them.
So that it allows me to purchase an item, or have access to info.
Thus, I need a password for each site.
I have so many now, that I have too keep a little black book with all my different ID's and passwords in it.
I hear some people say.......
Get this program that holds all your passwords for each site.
Thus, you only need to remember just one password.
If someone hacks you, and gets your one password.
They will have access to all your passwords.
So, until someone comes up with a fool proof password, that can't be hacked.
I'll keep my little book of passwords, stuck in a locked desk drawer.
Sometimes passwords can be a problem.
My Aunt inherited my Uncle's Apple Laptop, after he passed.
The drive contains historical documents that he had been working on for several years.
But, because he password protected it, she could not access the Doc's.
And since he never wrote down the password, or told it to anyone.
It still remains locked, and inaccessible.
The best she could do was make a separate ID user login account.
She could run it down to an Apple Store, and have them try cracking the password.
But she doesn't have a lot of money to be spending on it.
