Windows 15 scam

Email

There is a harmful scam going around that I was involved in Nov. 15. I received a call from Windows 15 stating my computer was full of infections and if this wasn’t taken care of my computer would be ruined. They said they wanted to help me. I went to my computer and after almost three hours of them “helping me,” they said I would receive a call from Western Union giving me a number and then I was to give them the number. It was then I became suspicious.
