Total money lost $200

Type of a scam Tech Support

Offered fake tech support for HP Printer.

I let them remote-desktop into my computer and then I started to see emails from amazon and best buy for fraudulent charges. They changed my laptop password and would not tell me the password until I gave them money. They are unethical and 100% scam.
