The issue in GetHuman-skihawai's own words
My phone was hacked. This person went in and disabled the Android web browser and all other is functions. I was running scans with my premium paid Lookout and Avast only to be told everything was ok. When I realized for sure that I was being hacked I backed up my entire phone with Google and Samsung. I was doing all this from inside the fort Knox secure folder where I thought I was safe. One day DuckDuck go alerted me that someone tried to follow me in but stopped them. It wasn't long before I realized that the secure folder want the real one and just shut off the phone and took the battery out. I tried to wipe the phone but he was able to stop me with anything I tried to do. When I was trying to shut everything down I uploaded and sent a copy of my saved passwords from chrome. He intercepted the email and took the passwords but left me one of his malware calling cards in place of. I deleted my Google account and Gmail. I had to call all of my creditors and change the information. My credit cards had to be cancelled and reordered. I was not able to do anything with my checking account, so I opened a new one with another bank. He was in my checking account. I was withdrawing as much as u could each day, but he was able to make it where when I went to the bank for the first time each day I would be declined for to many withdrawals. I'm not sure if he was able to get any money out because I lost track of it with all that was going on. I can provide you with my old email and phone number as long as NOTHING links to my new accounts. I would like to be able to verify any communications without actually opening an email.*Old email and phone*Rickleestacy@Gmail.com****-***-*****Some passwords I've used in the past.*Ireneann***Ireneann**!*Winter****!*Thank you*Rick Stacy****-***-****
