Windows 10 Scam

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Called to tell me my computer had been compromised. Tried to sell me a $199.00 tech fix. When I said I would need to varify them after getting their invoice, which I still have, they tried to delet the invoice email and tried to crash my PC. But, I shut it down before they could do it. I finally got it to re-boot. I'd be happy to share the invoice and routing codes they sent.

  • Nov 29, 2017
  • Monetary Loss: $800
I called the number to fix my computer which of course said no cost and when they looked at my computer they told me I should sign up for 3 years for the best plan to speed up my computer and get rid of viruses and other things. I paid $400.00 to have them fix my computer from their place of buisness and after a while my computer was the same and I called them back and told them my computer was not any better and Sal told me I needed to sign up for a different type of computer clean up and spent another $400.00 and my computer is still the same.

I was also scammed and hacked on Saturday 27/2/16 Only realizing it was too late when the scammer start asking for my banking detail. I immediately switched off by computer, unfortunately too slow as he locked my pc with a password. Now I am battling to get my pc up and running again. Must I reload? Or how am I going to be able to fix this?

To user: grandpa, complaint #99 - Do not pay them! It is a scam. Take your computer to a local computer repair shop and have them remove all the viruses and check for damages.
