Hacked, Chapter Two

Whoever is after me won’t quit. I had my computer tech come today and wearing mask, and gloves, he dealt with Facebook and it cost $175. He helped Ed with his printer too. I thought I was back in business when I opened a new account, but I got an e mail from Facebook that a sign in attempt had been made from Warren, Ohio, was this me? Well, I said, no, so then they prompted me to change my password, which I had just done. Andy (computer tech) wasn’t off the street, so when I phoned him he came right back. So the solution, since the attempt was not successful, was to say, yes, this was me, and the problem went away.

Later in the day I tried to sign into my e mail and was blocked. I started a chat session with their support person and learned that they blocked it because it was sending spam. After I answered all their security questions, they said I could get it unblocked when their tech was available and to restart the chat tomorrow. I said, I would do it by phone (because I didn’t think I could remember how I got the chat page to start with), so she gave me a 24-7 number and I will call that right away.

But first, it’s trash night and the can has to go to the curb. And I will do a walk around the berm because I haven’t exercised today. My new back med is not working well. If there is a God, he’s holding a grudge too. Tyler is in the house and I have to find Max before I can seal off the pool access.

I have just learned cats can have the virus, but the little buggers haven’t been anywhere and people haven't been in the house and interacting with them, so I think that is not a problem here.

You have warned me to check for identity theft, and I just saw this, so will do it tomorrow.

What a shame I can't dismember the hacker and feed him to ants.

xx, Teal

Definitely a good sign that your financials haven't been accessed yet. Maybe the hacker is not that sophisticated. This sounds like such a PIA. Good luck.

Stinking hackers.

Our Experian account(s) are in Ed's name. He said he received no heads up from them.

They are miserable. Hopefully Teal, you do not bank on line but we all pay for things with credit cards so perhaps you should change the number on the card which is a mess but what I am going through now.
