Let me begin by acknowledging how crazy this will all sound..but i assure you i am not here to waste anyone's time especially my own..so here are the basics,from which you can decide 2 engage with me or not...My android and pc both seem to be infected with some kind of variant of zapchest.api..now,it may not be zapchast but it behaves in a similar. manner,especially in its ability to remain undetected by antimalware and antivirus software...but it is there,even the blockheads. From Comcast acknowledge this..but there is a very human element at work here...one that reacts at light speed to hit me with a denial of service as soon as i discover and attempt to manipulate Its settings...the way it seems to work at least on the pc is by immediately and imperceptibly logging me off and then logging on another sid but one that shares my same screen name albeit with a different set of registry values and permissions ...where it gets very weird however is in its abilities to reroute my landline calls..example: u get a message from bank of America regarding a change to your account...it then asks u to call the OFFICIAL BOA number but in doing so your call is redirected to the scammers. ..it also redirects all calls to comcast to a prerecorded message that eventually tells you no one is available to help at this time...it also has the ability to manipulate simple 3g phones...it locked a 9 buck flip phone with the gateway unplugged. .i am no longer interested in defending all that is mentioned above and if your only response is how impossible all this is please hold your breath,you are with the majority...however if u are willing to entertain the idea that all this may just be really happening i would love to hear your thoughts...as would the fbi (who we are meeting with again tomorrow and are just as troubled by all this as we are)thanks for your time

If you are working with the FBI on this, I'm sure they'll advise you to act discreet.


If you don't want to obstruct their investigation, don't use your infected devices. Wait for the FBI to tell you what to do.
