Called supposedly HP number regarding our printer VIA GOOGLE.. Scammer tried to fix our printer but did not. Stated that our printer was still in warranty and that he would see $249.99 into my account. When I quickly looked into my account on my computer, it showed that HP account pending $2499.90.Somehow the account came to be 2499.90 And I owed him $2250,00. He requested me to go to target and get five gift cards of $450. Sent the gift cards over to him .On our way back I looked into my account after leaving target pending amount was no longer there therefore lost $2250.00. Please help this to help others thank you
