1-844-850-8999 is a telephone number operated by scammers that comes up in Google search results as an AOL customer service or technical support number. We called the number today and they said: "we have to call you right back." They claimed our AOL account had been "hacked five weeks ago by someone in Pennsylvania" (red flags everywhere on that comment) and said we needed to pay $119 for a purported AOL "security package" before we could access the email account again.

These are SCAMMERS based in India (clearly indicated from 3 different "customer service reps" on the call who had distinct Indian accents.
