Scam Description

My computer wax frozen and if I denied help I would lose everything. They gave above number to call. Said I had reached tech support and they walked me thru getting computer unfrozen. Said www.pornhob.com had charged my credit card for $8,000. They said they would transfer my call to my bank. The person pretended to be from my bank. Asked me several personal questions most of which I did not answer. He then told me the only way to get this off my card was to go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and get a store card for that amount, then they could remove both charges from my card. At this point I definitely knew this was a scam. There was another phone number of 1-885-485-5606. I know they use all sorts of names, but the two people I talked to were Paige Smith and Jason Greek.
