Definitely dont let them into your computer, or give them any personal
information. They are scammers/virus.

Malwarebytes has a good free spyware removal tool for macs that can work.

AVG makes a good free antivirus scanner for macs that we recommend for all
mac users (for future protection).

If you are having trouble clearing it out yourself, feel free to drop by or
give us a call and we can check it in for service or schedule an onsite.
