An Ohio family is living in fear of all things hooked to a modem, thanks to hackers which have seemingly managed to take over every aspect of their home.
“He’s gotten into the home computer, he’s gotten into the video games that the kids are playing, he’s gotten into the phone, phone messages. My daughter’s school, my daughter’s online school. He’s gotten into all of our cell phone, which would be three cell phones,” said father John Garrity
His wife, Christine Romano, said she and her family have seemingly tried everything to put a stop to the constant harassment, which has robbed them of their privacy, security and sanity.
“I definitely consider it stalking,” Romano said.
Despite changing passwords, swapping out modems and even opting not to have a home assistant such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa, the hacker still invades their privacy, even going to far as to listening to their conversations.
“I was talking to my daughter…it was supposed to snow… and I was messing with my son saying, ‘Do you want to build a snowman?’ And he (the stalker) started playing, ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’ from the movie (Frozen), on our phone,” Romano said.
According to FOX19, the stalker may even have air support in the form of a quadcopter drone, which allegedly followed them to Walmart, texting his daughter details of their whereabouts.
“He texted her phone stating that he was at Walmart and there’s a red car parked in the handicapped spot. And there was a red car parked in the handicapped,” Romano said. “And he said, ‘I’m inside, maybe.’”
The hacker has delivered countless pizzas to the family’s home, taken control of cellular devices and even continued to harass them once they shut off all the internet.
“I see you,” a voice message said. “Do you want to play hide and seek?”
The Cleveland Police have been notified and the FBI will soon find out about the hacking horror show, though no responses have been formally issued as of yet.
“I want it to stop,” Garrity said. “We want him to leave us alone, we want him to get out of our lives. The guys is very intelligent. The guys is very smart but he needs to get some help.”
