Is there really a Trojan Virus that Microsoft keeps trying to sell me a protective program for $199?

No, Microsoft Windows Defender is free to protect you against any Trojan Viruses! If someone is phoning you, they are scammers. There is also stuff called 'RansomeWare', which is a program you inadvertently execute which puts a message onscreen that you have a virus and have to phone money to get rid of it. Often it is a easy as pressing CTRL, ALT, DELETE and closing it is Task Manager.

I have charges on my credit card that I did not authorize. I do not have a playstation account

I don't like to pay anything on line with credit card. If the wrong person just happens to get your account number you are in a mess. If the credit card company does not help you I would cancel my card.and ask for another one. I was scammed and lost some money and I cancelled my card and will not pay anything over the internet.

Are these lotteries real or scams

anything you get that is unsolicited, promises money if you send account details, you didn't enter, says that you have been selected as a winner etc are all SCAMS
They all are attractive to greedy personalities who believe that something for nothing is the norm and are very successful in that regard
They are nothing more than "hooks" to get into your computers and open the back door to all of your account details and personal information

1. Change the password (if you have the password already)
2. Call PayPal and ask them to close the account. (1-402-935-2050)
3. Ask paypal to cancel / reimburse for recent transactions (if possible) if you thin its a scam. click on "details" next to the transaction to see more details about the transaction. Usually paypal has the email address or even the phone no. of the other person.
4. Get a hold of your kid !!

My cell no is 9999592673 and last night my balance was rs3. and today in the morning there is -RS.24 so from where it has been deducted.

Please check if you (or someone else) has accidentally subscribed your phone to one of those "free ringtone" offers. These are scams in which you think you'll get a free ringtone, but you're actually subscribing to a service whose payment is deducted from your cellphone account.
In any case you should talk to your operator about those charges. They should be able to revert and cancel them.
Tip: Never let anyone use your cellphone, ever. And be on the lookout for any "Congratulations, you've just subscribed..." messages. You have to unsubscribe your phone if it was accidentally subscribed, or you'll lose money.

Does GOOGLE have Gmail 2010 network promotional LOTTERY ? In Johannesberg , South Africa ? Please confirm ?

Lottery scam is a type of advance-fee fraud which begins with an
unexpected email notification that "You have won!" a large sum of
money in a lottery. The recipient of the message - the target of the
scam - is usually told to keep the notice secret, "due to a mix-up in
some of the names and numbers," and to contact a "claims agent." After
contacting the agent, the target of the scam will be asked to pay
"processing fees" or "transfer charges" so that the winnings can be
distributed, but will never receive any lottery payment.[1] Many email
lottery scams use the names of legitimate lottery organizations or
other legitimate corporations/companies, but this does not mean the
legitimate organizations are in any way involved with the scams.

There are several ways to recognize a fake lottery email:

Unless someone has bought a ticket, they cannot have won a prize.
There are no such things as "email" draws or any other lottery where
"no tickets were sold". This is simply another invention by the
scammer to make the victim believe that they have won.
The scammer will ask the victim to pay a fee before they can receive
their prize. It is illegal for a real lottery to charge any sort of
fee. It does not matter what they say this fee is for (courier
charges, bank charges, various imaginary certificates - these are all
made up by the scammer to get money out of their victim). All real
lotteries subtract any fee and tax from the prize.
Scam lottery emails will nearly always come from free email accounts
such as Yahoo!, Hotmail, Live, MSN, Gmail etc.
