Website billing scam for a computer GoTo repair company

Yes, let's logged in.  I wanted to report a website front for a GoTo computer scam which is: wonder Direct LLC. I paid $200 for the service billed by Wonder Direct then my computer was blocked and let couldn't log into my computer.  I had to have Microsoft reset my computer (lost all my data) before leaving could successfully log back in.
