I was scammed by Techowide

When trying to update maps on my Garmin, an error directed me to Te chowide. After fixing my computer they sold me 6 years of McAfee for a total cost of $549.95. The McAfee icon they installed was fake and I had to have the real McAfee uninstall their stuff and then buy a real McAfee. Techowide had me write a check to Legacy, Inc., scan it into my computer where they took it and cashed it. Only when I (weeks later) went to the McAfee site did I find that I had no coverage and had been scammed by Techowide/Legacy, Inc.

My new Dell computer was compromised because it did not have a firewall, there was an announcement and then a direction to Shankar Consulting, Inc. who put in defensive software but then I kept getting passed on to other techs, for two days, ending with Techowide, 1-855-236-8222, then a refund was promised for two charges of $249.99 plus $100 compensation offered to my band in gift cards for $6000 and I was asked to go to Target of charge $5400 in over charges. Is my computer safe or not? I did not go to Target and I could not get you on the phone.
