I rang the number given by Microsoft when I had difficulties

Customer Question

I rang the number given by Microsoft when I had difficulties when first downloading Windows10 and was given the number of Tech support - see below:
Account ID-ST928573644MD90
Toll free-0***-***-****
Level 3 certified team
pctechadwiser-149.99
Full name- Mrs ***** *****man
email id-***@******.***
They spent all day 'cleaning' my computer and taking £149.99 for the service. Since then I have had 2 different companies - ReImage and another company both telling me I have many problems and I am unable to lose the constant intrusion. Anyway they may be right and Reimage are only requesting£24. I have the feeling that the company - tech support are the same company that scammed me several years ago but thought that by going through Microsoft I would avoid being scammed yet again!
I would be grateful for any help or comments.
