Hi all, I've only just found this fab forum, and I'd love some help about the following.
I have a new neighbour, an electronic's engineer, who I barely know, and my family and I had just began to
befriend him and his wife. We helped them rather a lot, as they were also new to the country (I live in
To cut a long story short, more we got to know them, the 'stranger' they seemed, the other day, out of the blue,
I had a phonecall from the wife, ranting and raving like a lunatic, swearing at me and accusing me of having said
certain things about her and her husband. She went into details, but only later I realized that she had just given
me the rundown on a conversation or two that I'd had with a friend, via facebook messages, where I had actually
There was no way that she could have known about what I'd written, unless she'd read it. So putting two and two
together, I presume that in some way, her geeky husband (who incidentally has at least 5 computers and a lot of
electronic equipment), has gotten into my account and read my messages.
From the ranting and raving that she was doing, I think this must be going on for at least a month.
What I'd like to know is, is there any way that an expert can verify if I have been hacked, and trace the person
or the IP of the person that is responsable? The only thing I have on them is their email addresses, and they might
both come from the same computer (like i said, they have 5).
It's really necessary for me to know, as I want to charge them for this. I believe that mental illness is involved here,
as unfortunately other things have happened, such as someone keying my car as it sat in front of my house
(I have no concrete proof, but I know they're responsable).
I have contacted a computer expert who has asked me to bring him my pc and my modem, (I had a wireless unprotected ADSL connection),
but on the phone he didn't want to talk much.
Do you think I stand a chance of nailing this person? I don't think he's been through my emails, because of certain things that the
lunatic was ranting about, but they have definately read my facebook messages, and also those of one or two of my contacts.
Thanks for any answers and for spending time reading this message.
