Possible Fraudulant Email

I just received an email saying that my McAfee Pc Protection subscription has been renewed for nearly 500 dollars. Not only do I not even use PC, I had to create an account just to post this.  When I tried to call the number given in the email, they kept sending me to different sites and download programs I never heard of.  Is there any way to report them or make sure that my money is not withdrawn?  I have pictures of the email if you need me to upload them.

 

Beware of scammer posing to be McAfee charging $399.99 to your account for auto-renewal

Hi @MagiaVW 

We understand your concern. Kindly ignore or delete the email, do not call any numbers or click on any links or download files from the email. This could be scam. 

Please refer the article below that has informations on avoiding email scams.
