I got on computer to search recipes. Immediately there were numerous Microsoft popups & an audio message saying my computer had been compromised & to call the number on the screen. I did so. The man I spoke to had a strong foreign accent. He was very convincing in assuring my numerous questions regarding this being a scam. He convinced me to let him show me where the problems were in my computer & I allowed him access to my computer, unfortunately. After showing me the "problems", he told me my options & the costs involved. I asked where I would be sending the check & he said it would be done electronically. I told him I don’t scan & he looked at my control panel, showing me the printer hooked to my computer & told me it would scan. After numerous questions & no further assuring answers, I discontinued the call. I then shut down my computer. Spent the rest of the day calling banks & credit card companies.
