  1. I was also scammed this morning. The Divine Group claimed they were from Windows and said that my computer was 85% damaged that I had clicked on a site the night before and hackers were trying to get in but did not. They also said my computer would shut down and crash by Monday and this is Friday. I gave them my credit card number for $199 and left my computer running with them at helm. After I got to work and told our computer guy he said it was a scam that to cancel my payment. I put in dispute as it had already gone through. And unplugged my computer. I hope it’s alright. I was in duress as I was trying to go to work. They caught me at the most a time I was most unguarded and in a hurry. I have called my credit card company and they said I could put it in dispute and will call that company when I can to cancel that plan. I already have one with Dell. I don’t need another one. I wished now I had hung up on the first ring.
