Scammed by posers representing window's
Dec 24, 2018
Monetary Loss: $1200
Opened screen which froze. Windows logo and a message they has virus alerts, call immediately. It was all down hill from there. They were inside my computer and I had no ability to stop them.
I had a pop-up on my computer and it says it has blocked my computer. I was able to go to control - alt - Delete and get to where I could do some limited functions but can not get rid of the tab that says the computer is blocked and I have to keep going back to get around it again and again.
Below you are asking for supporting documents. I do not know how to give you anything.

I want to report a phone call scam I received - this one last night - supposedly from Microsoft. I want these crooks nailed to the wall. I can't figure out how to contact a human in the Microsoft empire to give the specifics I gleaned from my caller. Hopefully, a Microsoft personage will email me back as this is not my 1st scam by phone (my CELL PHONE!) or by EMAIL from India trying to get me to follow his 7 steps to clearing my laptop of a bunch of "vicious viruses". I got his name, personal phone number (9903972447) ..
