Complaint Review: Linksys smart wifi setup.com
Linksys smart wifi setup.com linksyssmartwifisetup.com scam, attempts to hack into computer, fake Linkksys smart wifi technical support, fake 323 area code Internet
Was trying to set up a wireless router from Lynksys. Needed to reset the wifi password to connect to the internet I followed the link http://www.linksyssmartwifisetup.com/ which takes you to a scam site!!! It looks a bit fishy but appears to be Lynksys online support and that is when a chat box appears. The support tech then asks you your issue and for your name/email and phone number. Immediately an agent calls you for "live tech support". Red flag # 1 was being asked to hit the windows key and hold R to open the system command on my laptop.
Basically the "agent" was trying to gain access to my computer remotely to do God knows what. Of course I did not oblige and began question why he couldn't just walk me thru the set up. I also questioned why for customer support the # was 323-250-8005 and not an 800#. After growing tired of my skeptcism he hung up on which was just fine. [continued below]....
