I think I got scammed last week. I paid them 2500.00 . The name www.itechsupportonline.net Help

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

It was made for me so there isn't a name. At&t is my carrier.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

A message spoke to me on my computer that said don't get off until you call this 800 #. So I did and they took over. Dumb me I paid them 2500.00 for their lifetime support and 3 years of free tech support 24/7365. My computer works fine and I did call them at this number and they were there. The only smart thing I did was pay with a charge.

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

Nope just am I in trouble or should I call my credit card company and refuse to pay.?

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
