Thank you I did not give them my number but they did get into the computor so have they hacked my computor??

hi again,

probably they will ask you to buy the program. and then they will ask you your credit card number. never give them your credit card.

i recommend you to scan your computer fully with an anti virus/malware program like norton, avg, or mcafee (whichever you have)
