It looks like Demonslay was right. Forced all Chrome windows to close over 12 hours ago and the problem has not shown it's self again - at least not yet. Will clear history now as added precaution.
Is there anyone to contact to report this to see if these individuals can be stopped from doing this?
I would think that the phone number provided in scam could be used to track them down.
Also looking at the history I see that some of the links are (or start with):
h ttps://dnshost ".me"/in/726817356/?ads=wy0z4b6cj8
h ttp://engine.spotscenered ".info"/Redirect ".eng?"
h ttp://server31.adserverclicksnow ".com"
h ttp://security-g4y1we ".tech"/critical ".dll"
