Scam Description

My Facebook had been hacked! I looked up facebookhelpdesk online and there is a number so I dialed it. They looked my account up and everything fell into place. Then they want to verify my identity by looking at my cash app. So the supervisor called me back from a supposed personal number. Said that someone that hacked my account purchased bitcoin thru someone else’s account and to restore mine they deposited 480 into my account and transferred 460 out. I took pictures and asked questions. I said I wanted a copy of the transactions made. He said he would get this for me. He then sent me by text a long list of letter number combinations and had me send them to him and paste into cash app. I completed one transaction and turned off Anydesk and uninstalled it!
