1. Change any and all online passwords IMMEDIATELY! And, where possible, enable 2 factor authentication.
2. Contact your credit card issuers and have them issue new cards.
3. Format & reinstall. That's the ONLY way to ensure that no backdoors still exist.

I agree with steps 1 and 2 above, and step 3 will certainly work, but it may be too much for many people to handle.

So let's narrow it down a bit: Who exactly did you give remote access, how did this person contact you and why did they say they needed access to your machine? I'm guessing it was a fake tech-support caller, but I need to know a bit more.
