Was I Hacked
While in the internet a message popped up stating the messenger is Microsoft and showing the Microsoft Windows icon. The message from Microsoft said my computer was hacked and to call 800-605-2421 for assistance. I allowed the person responding to the call to take control of the computer. I agreed to pay $250 to repair whatever damage to the system. Various programs were ran by the responding party over the next one hour and fifteen minutes after which I was informed the problem was resolved. I was then offered protection from this occurring again with three protection periods (3 years, 5 years, lifetime) at various costs. I declined the service. I think I have been scammed and as a result lost $250. I have the following information on responding party:
1. Head Quarter - 229 W 43rd St. New York, NY 10036,
2. Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for similar experiences and a confirmation on my suspicion of being scammed.
