Hi Stlguy88, and welcome to TSG,

Are you referring to the Public IP address that someone can see for your Internet connected device? If so, then most anti-virus or Internet security software should offer suitable protection. Most Internet connected consumer devices today typically use a shared public IP address. The security software companies know this and design their software accordingly.

Provide more details on who told you this and why? Sounds like a scam.

These days, many scammers are calling people on there phone and tell them, there ip is being used by someone else.
So if you have got informed by any anonymous person. i will suggest you to ignore it and stay away from them as well.
I am tell you this with my experience. i had made this mistake once about a year ago.
