Type of a scam Tech Support

My laptop locked up and their website came up to contact them immediately. It said laptop had a virus and they were from MS-IT and would fix the problem. I called number, they took remote control of my laptop, said they were installing software to fix the problem and Iaptop would be protected. The three people I talked to had Indian accents and were hard to understand. The one in “accounting’s” name was Thomas. I paid them $500 for everything. I later realized this wasn’t what they said it was. They convinced me because my laptop froze, Looked like Microsoft and I didn’t know what else to do.
