Don't be a scam victim. Cold calls regarding your computer being compromised are total fiction, if you give these scammers access into your computer then you could have serious security concerns. Simply hang up and never give any banking information.

If you have given a cold caller access to your computer then I would advise you to stop using your device until it is checked over.

Whilst on the subject of cyber security, I offer one of the top rated antimalware (antivirus) protection programs available, 12 months protection from online threats and ransomware. Message for more information.
