Hello,
I am a network professional with over 15 years of professional experience. I am the technician assigned to your case today. I look forward to working with you and resolving this problem.
May I ask 'how' it was hacked; more-so, what evidence is showing on the computer that you were?
I will be standing by.
Thank you,
Jason
