Yesterday night many colleagues received an e-mail allegedly written by me and a extract from my old CV. Please kindly note that I have never sent anything like that, I would never allow myself to bother my colleagues and I am not currently looking for new clients. Please accept my apologies for this silly trick of somedody whose motives I refuse to understand.

You are probably a victim of identity theft, Aug 15, 2013

which is a crime in most countries, not merely a silly trick. If your e-mail was also hacked, change the password immediately, and inform your local police. It might also be wise to remove your CV from your profile and anywhere else you have it posted.

This is not something you should ignore, as it might potentially cause damage to both your professional reputation and your bank account.

On edit: Now that the title of the post has been changed from originally "Fraudulence?" or something similar, my beginning sentence makes little sense, more like "duh". Believe me, it was perfectly logical at the time I answered!
