I got a Virus years ago when I clicked on a link on an email supposedly from Ebay
They took CONTROL of my Laptop , just like Remote Support do
I saw they were in my emails , opening them one by one.
I got straight on the phone and froze my Bank accounts and changed all my email addresses , was very Lucky I stopped them in their tracks.
Had to take my Laptop back to Factory settings but that was a small price to pay, be it a damn inconvenience.
Now I always verify any email I'm unsure of and don't just click aimlessly.
