The email read [sic]:

"Hello. There is a job offer for you which get you compensated for a period of seven days that will begins or include an indicated day!!! , please reply to this email ( eddycalls@gmail.Com ), if you are interested."

Senator Hadley said the breach in his email happened Tuesday night sometime and he found out Wednesday morning.

He said if you get the email to delete it right away.

He points to Target as an example of how seriously this type of breach should be taken.

He adds he'll be working with it professionals to make sure no more information is compromised.
