    Hello,During the purchase you have reealved your banking information to the third party, and the criminals behind Strong Malware Defender could use the data to hack into the account. Calling to them would not helpful at all, and perhaps they don't have any contact number.Instead of going through this terrible experience, you should call to your bank and dispute this situation and of course erase Strong Malware Defender from your computer as soon as you can. Install a legitimate antispyware tool, or continue with manual removal if you know how to detect all malignant files.Good Luck!
