Cell phone tracked.Need someone to believe me

February 25, 2011 at 03:39:05
Specs: Xp.Win7.NTx64
My family and friends have been no help. Ive been told i'm crazy, and that Ive lost my mind.
Is it possible ..... to belong to a "network" remotely- without my knowledge? (i confess that my computing has only been email and bill pay-i know the basics)
is it possible......to have my four computers on the "home network" be configured and manipulated-by a RAID (partitioned hard drives, online "memory" storage...) without my knowledge?
Is it possible..... to have my phone tracked and my calls logged as well as my text msgs logged, and sent to a remote device? without me knowing!?
if so, is "bluetooth" involved? car tool kit? listening/conference device? radio frequencies/CBradio antenna?
IF THE MEID # on your cell phone has been compromised, can these problems happen? IF THE IP address.MAC address on the wireless Belkin router was not secure, can this happen with the homegroup network?
strange things have been happening. Its been about 6-7 months now. AM I CRAZY?
please.... someone help me figure this out.

Most of the things you mention can happen with the except the first one regarding configuration of hard drive memory, etc. They need to have someone sat down in front of the computer.

All the others are possible but that chances of them happening to any one individual are slim. For them all to happen to the same individual indicates either extreme carelessness or paranoia.

So what exactly is the problem?

Why would someone do this to you? Shutoff and disconnect all devices.

I have never had a reason to not trust my friends. Having said that, the friend that was very close... helped me set up my internet and helped me with computer problems. He also visited and stayed here in my house while I was at work and my children at school. (this ex friend, is in prision as of early this month)
I also have no reason to not trust my kids. ALL the kids that visit my house. I have my doubts now. Daughters boyfriend is a big online gamer. Ive read articles here and there that point a finger in his direction. the kid has been in and out of my house for the past 2 yrs... WOW, ChicagoXP?
I do not know enough about RAID. but ive found info in hidden files, that suggest ive created one.
Ive got files that were created, and imported from a remote source. I dont know how to trace the remote device or machine.
Look, I am a good person. the people that have been in and out of my life since aug.09, ive since found out, are not good. Ive recently found out that someone i'm aquainted with, steals cell phones! (I PAY MONTHLY FOR MINE. I AM LEGAL WITH EVERYTHING i DO.)
and in response to the other that suggested I turn off ALL devices....ya right. How am i suposed to do that?
My problem is that i have been to trusting. and unknowing. very niave with the computing world. the mentioned friend above, i know he has friends, that have friends..... that can do just about anything on the computer and with computers. graduates from OIT, and IIT.
I unfortunately, dont have the money to get these computers checked out. and yes, some of the stuff i'm looking at is problably normal! lol ! but......
certain instances have made me unsure. all personal, and the log files ive found.
I trusted everyone! not any more. there is alot more to my little story... all personal, and unless you got an hour or 2- all related to my questions (paranoia?) I'm not typing it all out for the world to see.
thanks for ur replies. so what now?

You cannot create a RAID array by accident. You either plan to do it and do it right or make a complete mess of it, in which case nothing works. It is not something that happens by chance as you need at least two hard disk to make it work.

Unless you have specific evidence that the other things have happened I would forget about it. Just make sure you have a good anti-virus application installed and your router configured correctly. Be circumspect as to which web sites you visit and only download stuff that you ask for and are sure of it's source and not any old stuff that some web site tells you is good for you, it probably isn't. Don't open Emails with unknown attachments and and don't give anyone your Email address that doesn't need to know it.

For any one individual to get into an individual computer is extremely difficult, so difficult that unless there is some very good reason for it, no one is going to do it put in the effort. Malicious mischief is not a good enough reason for the work involved. You would need to be harboring national secrets or have access to a multi million dollar bank account to make it worth while.

wmknldge you don't list anything concrete, just a bunch of guessing. Raid stuff is just nonsense since that has no security impact on your computing or cell phone.

EXACTLY what leads you to believe someone is monitoring your activities via your cell phone or computers?

Please keep it just to the facts so we in turn can suggest a course of action.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

As said above RAID is just a way to configure hard drives when you first set them up. If they installed a RAID array on your system you would know because all of your files would be gone.

If you are so panicked about what might be on your computer then why not backup your files and reinstall a new System Install on your computer. That would for sure, wipe out any thing some one might have installed on your computer without your knowledge.

If you decide to do this make sure you have backedup every thing you need, you are able to locate installation CDs for all of the software you have installed, make sure you are able to locate all of the drivers for the computer (should have come with the computer) and make sure you have a Windows System CD that works with the Windows Key on the side of your computer. (May have to call the tech support for the computer you have to make sure they send you a drivers and system CD.)

This is a last resort option because it could take you some time to completely get your computer back to the way it was.

Are all the computers free of viruses, trojans, and other malware? Are you using wireless on any of your computers? You can't let everybody use your computers. Have you changed your passwords recently? I usually wipe the hard drives at lease once a year and reinstall the software.
