AncestryDNA has let hackers(or it might be an inside job) run rampant on their site.  I was contacted by a "June Byrne" who knew my family name and had matching DNA that said I was a cousin.  When I got her information from a separate site, I found out I was emailing two separate people.  Both of the "June Byrne's wanted my personal information and wanted me to click on their emails.  I contacted Ancestry and received no follow up call!  I also reported this to the FBI.  I would stay away from Ancestry and dont communicate with anyone on there claiming to be some long lost cousin.  They might know your family names and have their DNA match, but it seems to be a fraud ring.  Watch this company.  Please warn everyone not to click or give your email address on Ancestry.  Dont give your real name!
