Virus on my Mac

I had always heard that Macs can't get a virus. Yesterday, I was looking for a crochet pattern on pinterest and downloaded some stuff. Immediately, my screen locked up and said I had a virus, and I should call this number to fix it. I knew enough not to call that number, but I called Apple Help and they walked me through the process to fix it. It took an hour and a half because everything was locked up. Today, my other MAC did the same thing. I'm hoping that's the end of it.

I was always cautioned that Macs are less likely to get a virus, but they still can. PCs are targeted because they're more common.

There is a lot of odd stuff on Pinterest. I have reported numerous posts and they are removed immediately. I have macs and have never gotten a virus.
