I had been working with an online computer company for several years with good results. This company entered my computer stating they were this company. Told me that I had been hacked and they needed to repair my PC. Later found out they were not the original company and that they had hacked my PC. They demanded money be sent for them to secure my documents and to keep other hackers from entering my system. I sent the required money and they then told me that the transaction didn't go through. They insisted that I use MONEY GRAM to send the money as they didn't want my credit card # to be available to the supposed "hackers" I sent the money which they said didn't process correctly and insisted that I resend the money and they would refund the original amount. I did this and they promised to refund the original payment within 48 hours. That time has passed and I can get no answer from their phone. I called Money Gram and they are looking into it but told me the original money had been received and that I had to return tot he Money Gram Station to have them verify the transaction was actually made from their location. The Money Gram transaction took place at a CVS Store/Pharmacy in Kansas City,(North), MO.Show more...
I would like to have the money refunded as stated.
