    Contact your ISP and they should be able to help you with this.

    Just knowing your IP address doesn't allow someone to hack into bank accounts. The thief also needs your user names and passwords. For that, they had to have installed malware on your computer. You can change your IP address, but the malware may allow a permanent connection to your computer. You need to format and reinstall Windows.
