Customer Question
No problem with computer...

No problem with computer but had an invite over hangout - after chatting as to how she got my address, said through a date site - seemed odd but not she is threatening me if I don't give her 500 bucks - what is odd is I did not use gmail on that site - just not sure what to do

Technician's Assistant: How's your internet connection? Are you checking Gmail from a browser or a mail client (e.g. Outlook)?

Browser

Technician's Assistant: Are there any antivirus or firewall settings that could block you from receiving mail?

There is - I'm running win 10 on a tablet but have an old vista on my computer

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

Not that I'm aware of

I think this person should be marked as a scammer or something - just cant figure how she got my google address
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
if I dont pay her 500 bucks she going to post over social media about me
Tech Support Specialist: UranIT, Network Administrator replied 8 months ago

You can block or report that person in Hangouts. Spammers usually send out mass messages and some people respond, which no one should do...

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
