Complaint: While using my computer, I received a loud warning instructing me to call Microsoft. There was also a warning on the screen It stated not to close the web page or they would lock my computer. Fearful, I called the telephone number. Believing that I was speaking to Microsoft, I followed their instructions. Soon the man I was speaking to was controlling my computer. This man showed me (online) where people had hacked into my computer. He requested payment and I paid him $50 with my bank debit card and reluctantly agreed to pay the remaining $ 100 within the next month. When I questioned the name of the company (payment was to be made to), he assured me it was still Microsoft.
