Scam Description

Basically, it felt like they were fishing for information. They said that someone had hacked my personal computer and used my IP address to watch inappropriate material. They said my land line phone had been compromised, along with my tablet. Peter was the first agent that I spoke to and then he transferred me to the lead tech. I have never had any tech company reach out to me. I call them if need be. They kept me on the line for close to an hour. The senior tech kept going on about hackers and my information being collected and illegal activities and that I could go to jail for. I disconnected the call, the whole thing felt off to me.
