Get your credit card I'ts going to cost you $50,000". I was on the phone at the time with Paul Smith I closed the window signed off the connection I had with them; Mr Smith said I needed $5000, worth of programs to stop this. I paid it with echeck.

Paul Smith called called to get back on the computer and I had advised him of my feelings I was a victim of their scam, I had stopped the last payment and to not contact me any more and I had reported it to the BBB.
