What a mess you been thru...
If you are a clerk or an admin, these people are gaining informations to your company.
I'm sure you are not the only one that they are after.
They are after your company, boss, and even your colleagues.
Someone must have the habit of doing something nasty or bad.
If a person who wanted to do bad things to you or your company, he will find a victim or victims that is the weakest link.
For sure, they are after the information on a computer who is the secretary of the boss.
Sounds like your company is under so called covert survillence. (Under Survillence)
Did you give any details of your personal hand phone to any of your clients.
Did you give any details of your personal home address.
What you need to do is to stop using your handphone, your phone to your office and informed your boss about it.
Did your boss knows that your company is Under Survillence?
Did your boss knows that cellco is doing all this things.
You will never know that one of your client might be root cause of the problem.
Did you make any form of enemy???
I advice that you don't use your cell phone. Because this people can do a trace on your whereabouts and location.
Regardless what handphone or cell phone you use. The telco can do a trace on you and
your whereabouts and location.
Okay, if you pick up the phone on your office, did you hear any clicking sound???
Like click click click click....
Then most likely your office is being electronic bug.
If they hire a private investigator, and use a telco company to do tracing.
Then I suspected that the company that you are working is under survillence.
First of all, remove your battery of your cell phone once you get home. Do not turn on your cell phone.
Most likely this people already know your cell phone number. (What i mean is phone tapping)
They can do many things which you did not know behind your back.
They can do information gathering on you and your company.
These always been the case that the Secretary of the company have been target and victimised.
Did you know anything about "Industrial Espionage"????
Did you watch the news about cell phone tapping???
See this video. (Make sure you see this video)
Did you know anything about counter survillence?
