I need to get your feedback on group calling itself"

Customer Question
Hi, I need to...

Hi, I need to get your feedback on group calling itself "Green Services," who contacted me yesterday saying they noticed I seemed to be having trouble with my internet on my computer. Since I was having trouble with my internet, that got my attention. They checked my computer and told me that someone was trying to hack my internet. Since I had already established a relationship with this company about 6 months ago, when it called itself "Disney Services," and they pretty much said the same thing then. So, 6 months ago, I gave them almost $900.00 for 2 year contract, and since then, my computer has NEVER worked so good. So yesterday, when they called, I thought it was because I was one of their clients, and I told them I was very impressed they called so quickly. Now, a friend I worked with at State Dept just called to chat, and she said, "It's a scam, don't trust them." Now I am very suspicious. They did some work yesterday, and I agreed to pay them $1,500, for a "lifetime" contract, and said I'd give them the money tomorrow (Monday, Nov 20).

Technician's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

I don't know who else to ask. Arlington County VA has NO resources for this kind of issue. I don't want to make it a police issue. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS? Thank you, ***** *****

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your machine, and what operating system are you running?

Windows XP

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your computer?

Just a second

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your computer? What troubleshooting have you tried?

My husband is checking.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

That's a bogus third party service, and not associated with Microsoft in any way. They cold call unsuspecting users and provide false info and alerts to trick them into allowing them access to their PC, while charging exorbitant amounts for doing so. Please do not continue any further communication with this rogue party, and absolutely do NOT provide them with any further payments going forward. Your system is just safe; you may simply ignore their calls/messages as they come and they will eventually drop off. Microsoft will never contact users on its own unless their services are specifically requested for.

For further info on these types of scams, please check out the following official article:

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill

About two months ago, I got a warning from Microsoft on my screen. It suggested that I had been hacked and should call a number 1-***-***-**** and talk to security folks there. I did and subscribed to a lifetime of tech service. Now this group says I am being hacked and my information is being distributed to international criminal organizations. They want me to buy software package and installation for additional fee. Since I thought Microsoft was the source of this group, I signed up at first, but now I am wondering about Vision Techhelp.
