Do you have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, 10, or Mac computer?

I have Frozen my online banking and changed my Facebook password

That's good. That's it. You do not need to do anything else. The scammer cannot do anything to your contacts unless your contacts follow any instruction from the scammer. In the future, please always ignore any email message or popup message or phone call that you do not know or that you are not expecting.
