If you suspect your cable connection is being diverted or stolen, contact your cable provider at once and report it. If you look at your cable bill, usually in the fine print or on the back there will be instructions on how to report theft of services.

If not, visit their website and search for "report theft". You can call their main telephone number and try to speak to a person. Once you can get a person and explain the problem to them.

If that doesn't work, visit their nearest office during business hours and state your problem to an employee. Once you have their attention they should take it seriously since they are potentially being stolen from.

  • and, FWIW, if the cable is spliced PRIOR to the cable modem, odds are they aren't 'hacking' via that method.
