Please help me! Last week, was the victim of a computer scam. I called the 888# pop-up on screen. Looked so real w/MS logo and MS defender logo. I stupidly gave my IP address, name, cellphone #, (which I reported to MS fraud division and the FBI). (I installed a VPN, after the fact.) I can't believe I was so taken in by this guy.
I went to my bank in person and gave them my new email address. I tried to log in to my online banking today. Message "Secure Connection Failed. You are not securely connection to this site.Your connection to this site is not private. Information you submit could be viewed by others (like passwords, messages, credit cards, etc.) " Now, I'm terrified that this scammer has access to my computer. I'm afraid to access my online banking. He may even have access to my other online accounts, such as my cable, retail stores, etc. where I changed my email addresses and passwords. Even if I can get "securely connected" how do I know I'm safe from these guys who have my IP address? What can I do? Can someone please help me? Or make a suggestion as to where I can go to resolve this (if possible? Thank you so much.
