SCAM

TECHIE/NORTON/SYMANTEC SWINDLE SENIORS OF RETIREMENT $$ MONIES

JANUARY 30, 2016

SUBJECT: I'M 85 YEARS 0LD, A WORLD WAR TWO VETERAN, DISABLED AND CAN NOT DRIVE A CAR! I HAVE BEEN ROBBED OF $300.00 BY TECHIE/NORTON/SYMANTEC AND THIS IS MY  STORY:

I SIGNED UP ON 8-29-15 FOR WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A SYMATEC PROGRAM PROBLEM! DURING MY FIRST SESSION I HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE DELIVERY OF ENGLISH DIALIC AND THE TECHIE'S SPEAKING IN LOW AND FAST CONVERSATION! I THEN STARTED TO COMPLAIN AND TECHIE REQUESTED I SIGN A " I'M STATISFIED COMPUTER CONTRACT AND BASED ON OF MY PAST SATISFACTIONS  WITH  NORTON/SYMAN TECSERVICE I DID SO AS I FELT THE NORTON/SYMANTEC REPUTATION WOULD MEAN THAT THE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION REPUTATION HAD MEANINGI ASSUMING MY PROBLEM WAS BEING CORRECTED BY NORTON/SYMANTEC PERSONAL

I WAS WRONG AS THE PROBLEM WAS BEING HANDLED BY "SUPPORT BY TECHIE" A COMPANY THAT I HAD NEVER HEARD OF OR WAS FAMILIAR WITH AS  I HAVE BEEN A SYMANTEC USER OF DATA BASED SOFTWARE FOR OVER 25 YEARS AND HAD COMPLETE CONFIDENCE WITH! HOWEVER, MY PROBLEMS WERE JUST BEGING AS DURING MY TECHIE CONVERSATIONS I HAD DIFICULITY WITH TECHIE PERSONAL SPEAKING TOO FAST AND TOO LOW AND AS A RESULT I COULD NOT FULLY UNDERSTAND THE PROCEEDINGS! TECHIE PERSONAL REQUESTED THAT I SIGN A SERVICE CONTRACT WHICH I DID AS MY LAST DEALINGS WITH NORTON/SYMANTEC WAS NEVER A PROBLEM DURING 25 YEARS OF USING ACT DATA BASE ( I.E., STILL THE BEST DATA BASE PROGRAM AVAILABLE). I'VE USED NORTON/SUMANTEC FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS AND NEVER A COMPLAINT UNTIL TECHIE BECAME NORTON/SUMANTEC'S PROBLEM SOLVER?.

I PURCHASED A NEW LENOVO LAPTOP AT OFFICE MAX, COMPLETE WITH A 1 YEAR GUARANTEE AND IN ADDITION I PURCHASED A 2 YEAR WARANTEE! GUESS WHAT; DURING MY 6TH MONTH OF PURCHASE THE CD ROM HARDWARE DECIDED TO STOP WORKING! I IMMEDIATELY CONTACTED OFFICE MAX, I WAS THEN PASSED OFF TO LENOVO, LEVOVO PERSONAL ASKED SEVERAL QUESTIONS AND THEN PASSED ME OFF TO THE EXACT SAME TYPE " WE'LL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS FOR $ 250 PER YEAR COMPANY SIMILAR TO TECHIE?

THIS IS A SCAM AS BOTH COMPANIES REQUIRE FULL PAYMENT IMMEDIATELY AND NOT A MONTHLY PAYMENT SO THAT YOU CAN CANCELL AFTER A FEW MONTHS BY CUTTING OFF ACCESS TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS? ALSO THEY ALLIGN THEM SELVES WITH A LICENSED PARTNER CONNECTION WITH THE FAMOUS MICROSOFT COMPANY! A LICENSED FEE HAS TO BE INVOLVED AND IF SO SHAME ON MICROSOFT!

I'VE CONDENSED MY EXPO'SE ON WHAT COULD BE THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNET AND IF IT HAS HAPPENTO ME A COLLEGE GRADUATE WITH A DEGREE IN BUSINESS IT CAN HAPPEN TO OUR CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, THE ELDERLY, DISABLED, WAR VETERANS, MENTALLY DISABLED ETC. EMAIL SHOULD BE TREATED AS MAIL WITH THE SAME RULES APPLIED BY OUR GOVERNMENT AS TO SCAMS ETC.

PLEASE EXCUSE MISTAKES IN SPELLING AS I'M STILL TRYING TO LEARN WINDOWS 8.1? ALSO IF YOU WANT TO ASK ME ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS REGARDING THESE 2 EXAMPLES EMAIL ME AT [removed] AND TITLE YOUR RESPONCE: SCAMS

These sorts of scams have happened to a lot of people.  Everyone needs to be careful whenever they search for a company's support website to be sure they are going to the official site (or calling the correct phone number) and not to a fraudulent tech support site.
