    ok here are the steps you should take:
    1.change any account info you have setup. this goes with any banking accounts to google and even amazon. change the passwords and setup two step verification whenever you can.
    2.factory reset your device. make sure that you have the correct google information handy as when you factory reset the device, you will trip FRP (factory reset protection) and you will need your account info for that. now this might be a pickle especially if you have 2-step setup with google using the very phone you are about to factory reset. but i found this article:https://android.stackexchange.com/q...hone-even-if-i-use-it-for-2-step-verification that might help.

    do those steps above should get your phone and your life back.

    and just an fyi everyone gets robo and spam calls, that does not mean you are hacked.
