So today I was on my laptop checking my emails when suddenly this red message appeared saying in a new window saying someone is trying to access your login details and bank details but it's ok because ...... has done something. I don't remember everything the message said and then at the bottom it said call this number immediately. I realised it was a scam and
tried to close the window, it took a few attempts then I logged out of everything I was logged into which was tsr and my email and logged off my laptop. Was that the right thing to do? What can I do to prevent the red message appearing again?

Well you didn't have to log off your laptop. Get a pop-up blocker in future and definitely scan your computer using Malwarebytes.
