Hello,
My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today. The fellow on the phone is a scam artist.
These people will call people and tell them that they have been hacked into, but it is just a front. They will offer their 'services' to remote in and 'fix' the problem. There is no way for them to know that your computer was hacked.
In short, you can just ignore the fellow who called.
If you do have problems with the computer or would prefer me to remote in and verify that all is well, please let me know.
If you need anything else in the future, please let me know.
Thank you for your time today.
