Scam Description

The Email from Best Buy said a payment of 199.99 was going to be due in TotalTech department from the Intuit E Commerce Service.
The phone number 1-888-397-6038 was called the person said I could cancel the payment I didn’t request and have the money moved to a bank account. While faking the transfer of $60.00 an extra amount of $6000.00 was looked to have been inserted into the bank account. It appeared to be in my account .so I mistakenly went to my bank took out the $6000.00 and got the instruction by the person to send it to him I made that awful mistake at a Bitcoin ATM. I was later told buy the Best Buy that they were used like this and it was a scam .
