    I stupidly let this guy control my computer but on request of payment for him to get all viruses out of my computer he hung up when I refused. Has anyone done this and any consequences come of it?

Had been trying to get hold of bill payer (broadband?) when first answered during the day by my wife and has called back 3 times in 4 days. Told him he was a fraudster and put the 'phone down. The tel No. unobtainable by the way.

    Asian man called Martin Parkhurst from technical support claiming my computer was sending messages that it is running slow & had viruses, stuff like that. I didn't really follow what he was saying & told him that i didn't understand why he was calling me. He wanted me to turn on my google chrome. I asked him to call back so he could talk to my son. He did call back!! so i hung up on him.
