Hello Colleen,

It is not a hoax, it's scam, an extortion attempt. (You have noticed an accent)

If you do what they say. they will hijack your machine and ask you for a ransom. You pay and never get your computer back.

Just swear at them and hang-up !

Best regards

P.S. Often they also pretend to be calling from Microsoft Headquarters.
