Software Update Scam

They would send you  an email about a renewal and said if you wanted to cancel it, please call 8887922761.

The person on the other line sounded like an Indian and he claimed that I subscribed to a service which I hadn't used and if I needed to cancel it, I would have to install some sort of programmes on my computer and take certain steps to remove it. I told him that this was a scam and that I would call the call the Police and he hung up. The whole scam was to trick me into installing some sort of spyware or malware so he could take over my computer and steal my info from my computer.
