Just gonna put this out there.....
You said you are having issues with your home internet, messages not getting through, stuff like that. you also said you are having issues with your
What type of internet connection do you have? Dsl? cable? fiber? Dsl will be going out over your phoneline unless they installed a separate line
into your home just for that. any problems with the phone, would affect the dsl and vice versa.
SOME, but only some, of the things you mentioned could literally be a crappy internet connection dropping enough packets that messages aren't being
received on the other end. What email services are you using? web services like hotmail or yahoo? A service provided by your isp?
It makes a huge difference as web services are secured with SSL and have HTTPS:// in the address, man in the middle attacks are unlikely there, that's
why online banking is "safe". Any content sent over an SSL connection is encrypted, so even if "the hackers" get it, it's basically useless.
That is why they don't do random crap like this, they PHISH (not like my name though) and pose as other entities to get you to hand over your info.
I don't see the dea being so inept as to actually delete or read emails. The type of monitoring your friendly government is doing, doesn't take place
outside your house in a black van like on CSI sorry. It takes place in a quiet locked room at the telephone company network station, or main hub.
It's completely transparent to you, you have no idea it's taking place because it literally works like this:
Everything sent over the phone system and internet is broken into frames (phone system) or packets (internet). These bounce around the network and
get routed to their destination.
But thanks to the NSA, they now come into a point and basically, in laymen terms, get photocopied. They don't do anything to your traffic but look at
it, in such a way, that you have no clue they did.
Only stupid isps do stuff you can notice, like comcast or rogers forging packets to mess with bittorrent. In that situation, they send a request to
the host you are downloading from, telling them to sever the connection, but they send the request pretending to be you, by forging packet headers.
You can spot that yourself if you know how.
NSA or government level monitoring? Good luck spotting that, it's way more advanced than actually "tapping" a phone line, the whole system is tapped
