My credit card company said I should get in touch with Google and find out about if they can do any damage with my IP numbers or if I need to get new life P numbers.

This just started today. I called information for the number of Netflix they sent me to an number but it wasn’t really Netflix I did not figure that out for a few different phone calls. Including speaking to the real Netflix. But the first people I spoke with got all my information IP number etc. email address everything except my Social Security number. The guy said he would fix the compromised firewall protect it for three years from now $99. He finally said when I asked the company name he said it was high powered services and that they did technical work for Netflix. The guy at the real Netflix didn’t think that was right. Is all my information in danger now?

I’m not an Apple iPad AAIR to number two. Sorry I have to use the microphone as I’m disabled and have Trevor‘s etc. I don’t know why it’s not letting me say what the iPad is Apple iPad air2

That's OK.

If someone has your IP your not at risk. Providing you have the security software installed.

That was the whole point from the fellow he said I needed to upgrade protection as six other people were on my IP address. They took all the information and want to charge me $99 to secure the firewall that he said was compromised as being unprotected. Can you tell if I’m protected? I’ve had this iPad for a year.

Your 100% protected on an iPad.

You don't need any software as it is all built into apple's ipad system

I would cancel those charges

OK what about my cell phone it’s a a Apple six? Also I guess that guy was just trying to scam me is that correct?
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Does this mean I won’t have to change my email?
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
He has the IP number and whatever the number is *****’s below that all in settings he said he needed all those. I think that number was 256.256.something. I’m sorry this is so disjointed. It’s got me very confused.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
