@bevvydrink : ok so now im worried.....they even convinced me into doing things on my laptop,
You should be worried. This sounds like a standard confidence trick to get access to a user's computer to steal account credentials (email, ISP, bank, whatever) or to place malware on the machine (install a spam sending program, install ransomware that encrypts your files). And it may be that you are at risk of identity theft.
Change all passwords you have for online services, keep a regular check on your credit history for the next few months, and if you use online banking, contact the bank and see if they can offer any advice.
