I got “hacked”, my various accounts have been broken into. I have now moved all my passwords to a secure machine, disconnected the compromised computer and it looks like all problems are solved.
The amazing thing is, they did not take any money.
Instead, they deposited 10,000 dollars into my E-Trade account. It looks as if I , had made a transfer from my bank account, to my E-Trade account. So that means they actually got access inside my account. Of course I immediately restored my access and moved all passwords to another secure machine and they cannot hack that.
It’s already completed and money is in the E-Trade account, but my bank does not have this transaction even pending. And I know my bank account is OK, it is correct, access also moved to secure machine, no money left my bank.
What is this? Money laundering? But how – they knew that I would get a notification from E-Trade, secure back my account, and they cannot now access their money.
Unfortunately, they know my home address – it was in the E-Trade account to which they hacked.
And, they are probably very angry right now that they can’t access the money.
So I am worried that some very bad and very angry person will knock on my door with a gun.
The police came over took notes of everything and told me to not worry.
What could this be? Should I be worried?
