Scam Description

November 17,2023 .Got email from Mcafee-Geek Squad saying I purchased virus protection from them $200. I called to say I didn’t.
11/20/23 called back from someone stating they will have $200 placed back in my checking account. I never gave him my bank number. I wrote down on his form the amount of $200. Then he pulled up my account saying I asked to be refunded $4200. Since I made the mistake he threatened to take all my money out of my account if I didn’t purchase gifts cards thru Amex or Apple at $500/ each. When all was over, i spent close to $5700.00. Then he tried to rell me I tried to scam him for another $10000.00…..He brought up my bank page and it appeared to be wiped out to.zero balance. He tried to threaten me more- by saying he’s not afraid of the law , FBI, or whoever.
