About 18 months ago (July 2015), my computer began flashing a message that I was hacked, and to call a number to be helped.

They demanded close to $400 for me to "retrieve" my computer. Lately, they call me on the phone wanting to "save" me again, and yesterday (10/30) sent an email with a link to get them to take over the computer.Show more...
