I was just recently surfing the web when a pop-up came telling me that the FBI is tracking me. It told me: My IP Address, The browser I was using, my state and country.
I have siad alot of key words on the phone that may have gotten thier attention, like Tau-XI, Lotus Project, Ganesh Particle. This could have been an add, but I still took it seriously. Please offer any help you can.

i think if the FBI or NSA or any of the other letter agencies were tracking you, they would not tell you so

Somebody is playing games with you, I will recomend a good firewall like zonealarm and is a little utility that can track addresses for you is call peerguardian and is free, It will also stop most goverment groups from ping in your computer, also run a ad-aware utility like ad-aware probaly you have some adaware on you computer without even knowing tracking you, all this utilities are free. Good luck

All of that information can be accessed through a simple ASP statement. It causes your computer to fill in the information on your screen. It is not transmitted across the internet, tho. Also, IP addresses are regional, so you can assume a general location depending on someone's IP address.

As for it saying the FBI is tracking you, I've gotten those pop-ups, too. They're ads for anti-spyware and anti-adware. You could just get spybot: search and destroy for free to do the same job. Don't worry about it, it was just an ad


EDIT: I'd also like to point out many sites put tracking cookies on your computer. If you go to conspiracy sites, it's the FBI, if you're going to porn sites, it's illegal porn has been detected on your computer. If you're going to shopping sites, your credit card information has been stolen from off your computer, etc. They're targeted to inspire the most paranoia based on what you look for or at.

Very true. The fact that you are still here posting proves that they weren't really tracking you. You would have had a visit by now.
