Hackers don’t usually tell their victims that they’ve been attacked. In most cases, when hackers gain entry to victim’s computers, they don’t want anyone to know so that they can re-engage in the malicious behaviour in the future. In case you suspect that you’ve been hacked, here are some common signs of the malicious behaviour:

  • Credit Accounts – Someone used one of your credit accounts. Identity theft is very common online. If your credit card was used without your approval, this could be an indication that you’ve been hacked.
  • Odd Email Messages – You begin receiving unsolicited and strange email messages. Family members may tell you that they’ve received odd emails from you that you never sent. You may also notice emails in your Sent folder that you did not write.
  • New Installed Programs – Even though you didn’t download and install it, you may notice a new program has been added to your computer. This is a clear indication that a hacker may have manipulated your computer.
  • Password No Longer Works – If a password that you commonly use stops working, this could indicate that you’ve been cyber attacked. Hackers commonly access account login details.
  • Odd Browser Activity – Some hackers are able to gain virtual control over your machine and access it as if they’re sitting in front of the computer. If you notice recent browser activity that isn’t yours, your machine may be compromised.
  • Loss of Control – A computer virus can prevent you from certain activity and restrict your access. That’s a tell-tale sign of a hacker who has infiltrated your machine.
  • Inability to Update Operating System – If you’ve lost your ability to install important updates in your operating system, you’re likely a victim of Malware.
  • Slow Network Speeds – If your internet connection is consistent and you rarely experience problems with connectivity, and you suddenly notice a lack of bandwidth, this could be an indication that a hacker has gain access to your unsecured wireless connection.

The above potential signs that you’ve been hacked only scratch the surface of the multitude of suspicious cyber activity that exists in the online world. That’s why it’s important that you know what to look for. So, if you suspect you or your business has been hacked, do not hesitate to reach out to Investigation Hotline to get the answers and protection you require.

A serious error in judgment on my behalf has put me at risk of ID theft. During a phone call I supplied personal info to someone who I believed was with Revenue Canada. Immediately after I realized I had fallen for the CRA scam. Shame on me!  Since the incident I've been frantically taking steps to fend off the dire repercussions that such a mistake can have. This has included: Filing a police report, Filing a report with the Canada Anti Fraud center, Adding flags to my bank accounts, Putting up Fraud alerts on the 2 main credit bureau's. I've even purchased some Identity theft tracker software to monitor my info. I contacted Investigation hotline to see if there was any additional measures I could take. The agent applauded me on the steps I had already taken. They also had knowledge about the CRA phone scam itself that helped settle my nerves somewhat. With all the fear and anxiety I've been enduring for the last while it was assuring to speak with someone familiar with the actual risk potential.

I called investigation hotline after I provided somebody a home renovation and they refused to pay, I tried to bring them to court- hired a lawyer and found out I was given false information on the contract. After speaking with Mitch and explaining my situation I felt that he sincerely cared about my case and was quick to find out the information I needed. Within a couple of days, he had all the information I needed. I could not thank Mitch enough. I would highly recommend investigation hotline to anybody as I feel they are experts in the field and act fast and work efficiently. I felt that Mitch had a deep understanding of what I was going through and was empathic and understanding. I could not thank him enough and will be using this service again if needed. Kaitie S

Apr 02, 2018 I needed an investigator on Sunday Easter Week End. No one cared about the situation except this Company. The investigator was dispatched to the location without minutes. did not care about the Money to be prepaid or secured. The investigator took it personal. He felt of my situation and Specially when it came to my kids issues. My Ex-wife was cheating in a hotel north east of Toronto. He Located her within 1/2 Hour. This a true story; I never thought Investigator cared about the situation but the money.. This company did not care about the money, they finished the job, send me the invoice and i Paid him more than what he asked for. Sometimes money does not mean any thing to some one wants to get a load off his back and find the truth about his wife,,,, FOR SURE THIS COMPANY TOOK A HUGE LOAD OFF MY BACK. THANK YOU SO MUCH JOE MICHIGAN

Mitchell and his team of Investigators are an really extraordinary professionals. In less than 5 hours after first discussing with Mitchell about my case, Mitchell and his team had solved my case and I got the information I've been searching for some time.

I'm really grateful to Mitchell and his team and I do not know what to add yet, thank you, thank you and guys are the best.
