    Phone or computer? That's why I own a flip phone and run Linux, if you run Windows it's bound to happen. Now comes the task of changing passwords and contacting your credit card companies and your bank.

    Good to hear all is good now. Sure wish there was a 100% way to be safe from crooks. I was hacked a few years ago and have had attempted hacks a couple times since. When a hack is detected a technician at the Geek squad told me to immediately shut down the computer. Then restart after 10-15 minutes. So far, that's been working. It's a royal PITA to have to deal with threats from computer crooks all the time. But, I guess that's the world we live in now.

    That's why I use Linux, too many versions and no one wants to pick on it like they do Windows. I also use Proton mail for emails that do not concern nosy info gathers for everything else there's Yahoo. Break Windows and join the Linux crowd and be left alone. I pay $20.00 a month for phone service as its a phone, no data and text. Then the govment adds taxes & fees so its a bit more. Its a phone it rings and you answer it and place calls to others. Then there is a computer for everything else. I have a total of 4 laptops and the newest one will be used for banking & online shopping. This new laptop is running the latest version of Linux.

    We bank @ Wells Fargo about 1/2 mile from our home

    I was off work one day when they called me and asked if my wife was home, very odd, she was at work

    They said she was in the bank 1 hour ago and ordered new checks, I said no she did not

    I dropped what I was doing and rode to the bank, they showed me the recording of inside the bank, I said that is not my wife

    They froze my account for 24 hours, next day all was good

    Sometimes it can take a long time. We are still dealing with issues from when we were robbed almost 5 years ago.

    So happy you got outta that unscathed. Makes me sick that people out there are taking advantage of other people. No tolerance whatsoever. I know the good book says to forgive but that is so hard to do. But darn glad you're okay Jack. And thank goodness the bank was on the ball.

    I got a letter from Social Security several years ago wanting to confirm the change for direct deposit of my bank account. I hadn't requested any changes! I followed the instructions and immediately went to my local SS office. I was very surprised at how helpful and responsive they were. I was told they always send out a letter of confirmation BEFORE redirecting deposits to prevent hacking problems like I was experiencing. They put an alert on my account that required me to make any changes in person. Nobody got any of my money but it still makes me feel violated knowing they had my information.....

    Default Attempt again

    Well...... It happened to me again today! I clicked on an innocent looking link and all hell broke loose. Bells, whistles, and sirens going off and my computer locked up. I now know to just hit the power button when that happens. Don't even try to log off or anything. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then power back up. It does take some time to get everything back up.....maybe 10 minutes. But the bad guys are gone, everything normal, and no ransom paid...... Jim

I now know to just hit the power button when that happens. Don't even try to log off or anything. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then power back up. It does take some time to get everything back up.....maybe 10 minutes. But the bad guys are gone, everything normal, and no ransom paid...... Jim
    Are you running Windows10/11? If you are see if you can stop the automatic updates as anything can be coming in with an update, lay dormant and then present a nasty problem. In Linux Mint I get to chose the updates and then verify them. You are the second person that has had tomfoolery on his computer today. I run two browsers on my laptop Firefox and Waterfox both are secure. 3 search engines Startpage, duck duck go and Swisscows.
