Clicked on a website and a virus warning popped up in July 2017. A security warning popped up and got a call to access some website and they controlled my laptop and convinced me to pay $199.99 for a security plan to Avoid the virus from corrupting my laptop.
Today they called me multiple times and tried to pull the same trick and asked me to pay USD 999.99 for a renewed subscription I did not sign up for. I sensed something amiss and googled the company's name and found out they are a scam, based on local news last year. So I hung up and closed my laptop.
