Customer Question
I had trouble with...

I had trouble with my Epson printer and the number I found to call was said to be no longer in service and so I went to the next Epson 800 number and got someone in India who had me let him into my computer, something I rarely do, but I thought they were with Epson. The first thing he told me was that I had over 4,000 viruses on my computer and printer but I know that I don't and began to suspect something but before I could end the contact, He pulled up my husbands social security number. I turned off my computer but he was able to see it and copy I of that I am certain. What can I do?
