First of all, I read the article on how to tell if you've been hacked (I didn't NEED to read it, I beyond know) but I'm trying to contact the author OCCUPYTHEWEB; he says he obviously has email and can be contacted there but when I click on his name it just takes me back to wonderhowto.com.
Is this a place where I can get help? I don't want to hurt anyone, I just really want and need help. This has been going on for at least two years, probably more, and it's made me a different person (the exhaustion, frustration, confusion, no sleep, anxiety, etc.) I mean I'm REALLY at my wit's end; no one can help me, they tell me I'm crazy/that's impossible, or the few who do know, know how hard it is to find out who is doing this and why, or that they'll be prosecuted.
I'm going to make a list of things that have happened that don't include all of it by far, just by recency and the biggest/strangest/most impossible seeming things. Off the bat: I have an ex from 2012 who gps stalked me via phone before I knew that was a thing, he'd text me "how's (wherever I was at)?" and I'd be frantically looking around like an idiot. But I don't think he hates me or has a reason to continue doing this. This is gonna sound bad: my current boyfriend works at Apple. We've been dating two years together and he is a snooper to say the least, but that's like reading my journal/texts. He works in order support and when I say things like "netbios" I can tell he has no idea what I'm talking about.
Ok here are the things. I have been through about 7 phones in two years. I locked myself out of my iphone in March and when I got back in, everything saw my phone as new. Google would email me "got a new device?" I had a couple phones get hacked within 15 minutes, one time I was in a new city, my Dad paid, I used a new gmail and hadn't even had time to link with past...anything. It made me paranoid, I thought the people in the store were "in on it" because the t-mobile representative looked terrified when I came back the next day and it's hard to explain but when he set up my phone he called from the store's number but there was a time lapse between the "you got a new device!" message and when he actually called. When I got home I was already rooted. Same with Cricket store, I was suspicious of the person working there who sold my phone with the wrong sized sim card for one thing, and I just had no other explanation for how I was getting hacked with brand new info so fast. I got a new macbook and set it up with strict firewalls; no guest user. I discovered that in fact there was 20 gb of guest and public folders that were hidden to me. I was not, in fact, the admin. I was connected to an Active Directory workgroup using a windows server. I'd untick FTP passive mode, it'd be ticked again. I just tentatively made a lastpass account on my windows computer and found a lastpass folder with everything extracted and a suid. My passwords get changed constantly, sometimes I can get back in, sometimes not. They got through protonmail with 2fa on my phone (app, not text). I don't get texts at times, I have 2 phones and there have to be multiple copies of my number. Is that enough to interest anyone? This sounds really lame but I'm a really sweet person and I just want to live a normal life and not live in fear.
