Google Play card potential scam 0 Recommended Answers 0 Replies

When opening a third party app for converting YouTube videos to MP3 files, I was redirected to adult sites. When I kept tapping the back button, I received a notification with a phone number for Google support. I was advised to purchase hey Google Play gift card for $25 and give the person the redemption code. After completing this I was told that I have to register for a VPN, and that I needed to purchase three more Google Play gift cards at $100 each. I was told that my money would be refunded. I took the bait, because I was told my network was seriously compromised. The person informed me that I needed to purchase four additional Google Play gift cards, at $100 each. It was at this point I began to believe I had been scammed. I was told that no part of my money could be refunded, until we’ve completed the entire process. After the fact, I scanned my phone with the Security package that comes with my Verizon account, in addition to another I downloaded from Google Play. Nothing turned up.And now for the $325 question, is 1-888-413-3144 a legitimate number for Google support, or have I definitely been scammed?

There is nothing potential about that.  You’ve been scammed.  Google doesn’t have a toll-free number for support and they would never EVER ask you for cards.  That pop-up was fake.
 
I am very sorry.  If you gave the codes to the scammers, those cards will already be drained and the proceeds laundered beyond recovery. 
Google suggests you contact your local law enforcement agency and report the scam to Google using the instructions on this page:
 
  https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/9057338
 
Never ever trust anyone that asks to be paid in any kind of gift card for anything.  No matter how official they sound or what threats or promises they make.
 
Do NOT contact any email or phone number that posts here saying they can help you if you contact them directly. That’s not Google Support.  That’s another scammer looking to cheat you again
