The issue in GetHuman997201's own words
I believe I may have fallen prey to the latest scam of people pretending to be working with you. I was using Facebook and I clicked on a usually safe link and received an alarming message that my computer had been infected by a mini trojan and some other kind of malware (DLL?). i couldn't even close my browser. It was like they had completely locked me out of my computer and there was a voice repeating over and over again that I had to call the number on the screen immediately. I am recovering from pneumonia so may not have been thinking clearly. I allowed them access and they showed me a whole bunch of error messages. I agreed to let them work on my computer, only at the end they said if I wanted to maintain protection, I would have to pay $****.*** at which point I started to think it was a scam. I hung up and immediately unplugged and shut down my laptop, called my bank and all my credit cards. I need to know if this was indeed a scam. Please call me at your earliest convenience at (***) ***-**** - home or (***) ***-**** z cell.
