Well, I got hacked for Christmas this year. I highly suspect this man/woman is the same person who tried to friend me on FB but then was unwilling to share about themselves. Two days ago I got a phone call from someone claiming to be Microsoft and wanting me to give them my ISP because “there is a virus on your computer, okay? Thank you.” Since I had just updated everything and Defender didn’t find anything, I knew it was fake — well, that and if they could check out my comp for viruses other than with my own software, they already would have had my ISP.
Whoever you are in Taiwan, well, Merry Christmas to you, too. 😦
This person had been working at it for the last few days and I thought I had it taken care of yesterday. Then I got the email from Microsoft and when I looked into it, I found they had hacked my other email.
The FB account had a profile pic of a guy holding a dog. They are in a log cabin. His cover photo showed him on the couch in the same cabin, with a guy sleeping next to him. He claimed to be from Texas and when I tried to get more information about him, he used “okay and thank you” at the end of every so-called answer. Needless to say, I blocked him.
I don’t know if this person will use the same photos for making more trouble, but just in case, I want to get that out there.
My WordPress is okay. I changed the password to something much more difficult and have been working on checking and changing passwords.
In spite of it all, I am going to enjoy my Christmas and I want to wish everyone safe and happy holidays!
