Good morning Albert. My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows computers, phones, tablets, and printers. I am terribly sorry to hear that. I have several recommendations for you. First, your computer should be scanned thoroughly for any virus, spyware, malware, backdoor trojan, or rootkit, which could be giving hackers a way into your system. Secondly, you should change ALL passwords for Paypal, all email accounts, and any online banking system that you may use. while only Paypal can help you get your money back, I can help you to keep this from happening again.

From the Apple menu, choose About This Mac. Your version of OS X appears directly below “OS X

Once I know what your operating system is, I can provide detailed instructions for downloading and using the specific tools that you will need in order to thoroughly clean and protect your system.

If you'd like, I can perform these steps for you while you watch via the Premium Service of Secure Remote Assistance. This is completely optional. If you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and work on the issue for you.
