Before we begin, I would like to explain how the site works if this is your first visit here. The page you are viewing offers ads for things like secure desktop connection and a phone call. These are not asked by me and I will explain in our conversation if doing one of those things would help make troubleshooting easier. If you request to do either one, I would be happy to do it with you regardless.

If you are prompted during our conversation to rate me, it is as simple as choosing between 5 stars at the top right corner about my service today. Hopefully, I will earn 5 stars today. It is the only way I receive credit for helping you today.

Some things we work on may not easily be resolved with the given resources (such as needing additional media or hardware issues that require replacement). Please understand I will try my hardest to resolve the issue or answer any questions but some things are out of my control.

Finally, make sure to bookmark this page so you can easily come back to this page. If we are working on this issue and you need to step away, you can always leave me a message on this question. I will respond as soon as I can if I am not online. I check periodically throughout the day if not during my normal business hours.

Could you explain a little more about the issue? I wasn't able to get all the details from what you've explained. I wanted to make sure I understand about the emails going to Russia and your Apple password.

My computer is another issue. But since I am having trouble with it, I am wondering if it is the same person or company ( AMZN?) was sending my emails to Russia the last week of July. I was pretty sure it was AMZN. One of gmail’s employees called me around the last week of July and asked me if I knew my emails were going to Russia. I was looking for a email I sent. Found it but it wouldn’t open.
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

I am going to Opt out and let a more experienced expert take over for this issue since this doesn't deal with only the apple password. I think there will need to be some advanced troubleshooting to figure out if you have some kind of malware or leak of your password. Let me opt out and someone can jump on this one.

Hi,

I can see that you mentioned a Gmail employee called you -- Gmail/Google will never call you. It sounds like a scam company/person called you to inform you about a fake thing happening and they either did or are trying to extort money out of you.

I don’t have use of my computer and I am at home alone. I dismissed my nurses yesterday after three weeks. I fell, fractured my knee and both wrists. I am Sr. Citizen and my phone is all I have if my need to call for help.I am going to APPL Wednesday. Maybe I should wait until then.It involved Amazon’s getting rid of the email I sent requesting a check for the money I spent to replace the carpet ruined by Amazon ‘s carpet cleaning company. I took tens of thousands out of my IRA. Didn’t get it back in time to put it back into the IRA. Had to put it in Taxable Acct.Amazon wanted to erase the email here I elected to take a check so they could say I didn’t designate a check and they would give me a GIFT CARD!!!

I read your last reply. I did not go to the website and put in the code they asked me to put in. I paid no money. I hope AMZN didn’t do anything but I do know that after I sent the list of expenses to their adjuster, everything was deleted from my email the next morning. the list was empty
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
does someone have access to my emails?
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

No, they are trying to scam you.

They wanted you to go to a website, enter a code, then connect to your computer and pretend that your email account was hacked then force you to pay a large amount of money even though there was no issue.

I am going to take my computer to Apple Wednesday. They couldn’t fix it remotely.I may call you back after Apple looks st my computer.
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

There is nothing wrong with your computer or email account.

Those people were scammers and lying to you.

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
