Hello, my name is***** will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions. I am sorry you have encountered this kind of problem. First yes that is a scam and it sounds like you have spyware on your machine. Are you able to work around that red screen at all? I can also offer to use remote assistance to fix this problem as well or I can try and talk you through it. I also need to know when this problem started.
