Type of a scam Tech Support

We where scammed out of money by someone claiming to work for the US Department Of Justice. Mark Wilson called us initially on 1/1/2016 from 323-522-4645 and claimed that my computer was showing that it had a problem linked to criminal activity and they had to update our Anti-Virus as they knew we where not involved. We paid them $399 as requested via Western Union to do this and gave them "remote access" and they apparently took care of the problem. We then got a call back last week from the same people saying that our computer was calling back to them saying that we had something in there that was illegal and they could remove it, but it would cost us $1317 (which we paid through Western Union). The called us back and said the payment didn’t go through and asked us to pay it again but this time through Moneygram (which again we did) . We later noticed on our bank statement that we had been charged both times and they hadn’t actually done anything.
