I created a new site!!!

It would appear that I created a new site today kresi_nue4

http://www.myheritage.com/site-144957181/kresineu4?forcelogin

 but when I click on to visit the site I got this " The family site you're trying to reach no longer exists."

I did not create the site and it is showing on my page that I did, as no one else has access to my computor I was wondering how this has happened?

Hi Colin, 

Thank you for writing to us.

Sometimes users cerate new sites mistakenly. We can tell that they are mistakes because there are no new members invited to the site, and there are no trees on the site. This is why we automatically deleted this site.

It still shows on your MySites page, as that page takes a few days to be updated.

Best Regards,

Esther / MyHeritage Team

Hi Esther, as I said "I did not create this site"  someone used my log in name and created the site but the main thing that makes me wonder is it was deleted the same day would a hacker have access to create then delete on the same day?

Hi Colin, 

I do find it very unlikely that a hacker would have accessed your account and created and deleted a site.

I suggest that you take precautions and change your login password for your account. 

Best Regards,

Same thing happened to me and was told I must have done SOMETHING (several possibilities were offered, none of which I did) and was told to just delete it, which I did.  It must be this new kid they hired.  There is one person who has at least 30 sites, which, unfortunately, have a couple of smart matches with mine.  I alerted this person, but he so far has done nothing about it, so I just clicked 'Ignore this tree' in the choices.

I guess people have a good reasoon for having all those different trees, but it's hard to believe it is important enough to make it that complicated. I think the people who do that, and the people who have 300,000 names on one tree, many of which are repeated, are both trying to do the same thing. I am just not sure what.  This is why I do everything online. I do research in FTB, but that generally isn't very helpful. Pretty much everything it catches I have already seen or just leads to ancestry.com.

I have researched every single person on our family tree as carefully as possible and never add anybody from any other tree without verification whenever possible or using common sense--I never just copy or import!  I use the FTB because I won't let anyone else mess with the information or the format.  I am very suspicious of very large trees:  the information is frequently wrong and at least sloppy.  I have seen trees as large as 500,000 people!  How can you possibly do any verification or even know what you've got?
