Scam Description

I believe I have been scammed. Yesterday I bought a new printer and was installing as instructed on line. A message said I could not install it because of virus on computer. I had spoke with the person at HP on installing it. She referred me to this guy and he then took over. I was a little concerned but did it anyway. I did buy the virus and support for $500.00 for a 10 year deal. After that another person did install my printer for me All is working. I have thought about it and I do feel like i have been scammed. I know I cannot get money back but maybe this will help someone else as I was stupid for not going with my instinct in first place. I really thought it was since I had talked to Hp. I paid with credit card. Thanks
