    Malwarebytes for Mac is always a good idea. Download, do nor register and as said earlier after 30 days the free version runs just great.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Always good idesa MWBFM. Download, do not register and after thirty days will be the free version 3.6.21.

    Well, depends on how much the lady from India decided to take from your machine. Get Malwarebytes from malwarebytes.com, run it to see if it finds anything she left behind. You don't have to pay for malwarebytes, it will nag you for a month to pay, then revert to the free version that does not run in the background, but only when you launch it. I would change every password on every account ever used on that Mac, as the lady in India may well have all of them downloaded. And watch for your credit cards and various account for any strange activity.
