I received a scary message on kik threatening legal action against me for misconduct. He person or bot was pretending to represent kik. Kik told me that they did not send me the message. Is there any way that this is real or is completely a scam. I feel like it probably is, but a little peace of mind from a pro would help. they didn't request any money or info in the initial message. Upon receiving the message I just deleted the entire app and anything associated. Thanks in advance.

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

We have discussed this a couple of times and other experts have discussed the same issue numerous time. We have all agreed on the subject -- How can I help you with this issue again?

I'm sorry for being a bother. Maybe I should get some counseling for it...While I know it was not from kik I can't stop worrying about it. I know you all agree. It looked so legitimately from kik....Are you sure this wasn't orchestrated by anyone and this was solely because my name was advertised...Seriously I'm sorry for bothering.

You are not bothering me at all -- I want you to feel comfortable that our answers are correct and that you can lay this issue to rest.

If there was any type of legal action, it would have taken place already. It has been months since you were "notified" and nothing has happened.

you are positive this was random? It seemed like it could be a scam from the get go because the odds that a real message would come through like that during the one hour I was online are slim.

Yes.

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
