    Help please

    I wonder if anyone can help me please. Yesterday I was sent a message via messenger account attached to Facebook. Like an idiot I didn’t understand what the message was about and clicked on it. The picture message just appeared again as if I had responded with the same picture message. It turned out to be from a hacked Facebook account.

    I now don’t dare do internet banking because I’m scared stiff I am being watched and my passwords etc are being taken or, even if they can get them from my history. I have an Apple iPad and it is up to date with its updates. Please can someone who understands this stuff please advise me what I should or should not do. I did try to delete messenger from my iPad and apple iphone 7 but it reappeared today. I could not see all the message though.

    I know I was stupid and sorry but I am also thick when it comes to technology so any help would be gratefully received.

    is it the video scam, Joan. "Its you."

    If so just change your password on your facebook account
    change has never been gifted from above, it has always been fought for by people demanding it.

    Perfectly normal to show concern
    Top tips
    Change passwords
    Ring the bank to check for advice
    Then sleep well

    Burn the iPad immediately, and any family members who you have spoken to in the last fourteen years.
    Raefil, He's the second best moderator this forum has ever had, closely behind Nobber.

    Better off eating the iPad, and moving to a friends house in lower sackville.
