In the 15 years since I met James technology has made huge advances, My goodness, when I met James sending a photo over the web was still relatively new. When did Facebook start? 2005? text messaging? wasn’t that long ago, cell phones that can take pics and movies,GPS, all of that has been in the last 15 years.
Even though I know James had a tracking device on my work truck, I found the hidden camera, and I know he hacked into my cell after we split I still find it hard to believe he would use a drone to track me or to make my life hell.
I have no idea if the drone sitting outside my window the day of the interview had anything to do with James and I have been thinking I was being paranoid. BUT, the night of the interview my computer started acting up, Skype would not work and it kept saying to download it but it would never let me use it, ask Eddie, we tried for a good amount of time. Then we tried Facebook video chat and my computer wouldn’t let me do it so he tried and it never did come through my laptop, but I have Facebook on my cell phone so my phone rang and we were able to do the interview.
Since that night my laptop has had programs on it I never downloaded, I can not delete Skype, and when I went in to print copies of all my work for my education funding, it is gone. I have gone through my laptop from stem to stern and it is all missing. First off the folder labelled “funding” was empty but I searched through every folder looking for it. nada.
My laptop has been painfully slow and like I said a bunch of programs I never downloaded have appeared. I tried to do a recovery on it and it won’t let me, but I have managed to delete some of the programs, and finally last night got rid of Skype for the last time I hope.
So, seeing as this all started happening the day the drone was outside my window I decided to look on the internet and Googled, “Can a drone hack into my PC” What came up sent a chill down my spine. I had no idea it was so easy and so cheap!! One site even gives “spying on your girlfriend” as an example of what you can do with it.
For between $300-$600 anyone can have a drone equipped with the technology to hack into your PC and have total access to everything!! I only went into 3 sites, the last one was a DIY site where they teach you how to build your own drone and what you need to equip it with spy wear. The really scary part is that so far it is totally undetectable.
James is without a doubt techie enough to build it and it would be something he would be totally into. When we were together he always had a remote something, whether it was a car, plane, helicopter and I certainly know from experience that he is into spying.
It could all be a coincidence, but the technology is out there and everyone needs to be aware of how easy it is. Technology can be a good thing, but in the wrong hands it can be deadly and for sure in the hands of a narcissist, it is damn scary.
