    Is this a scam?


    I was on the microsoft edge browser when a pop up and audio saying my device been compromised and call tech which a did and they said if any store they mentioned like circle k was around so I could buy the security in that store because they’re partners or something like and it would cost me $350? So is it a scam?

    :)
