Don't use this service. I called because I was having a problem with my computer. The man on the phone said they had two payment options. I picked $24.95 month. He said I could try service for 30 days he never mentioned a contract for one year or I would never have used the service. The first time I spoke with a tech he had my computer working then about a week later it was back to the way it was. Try calling them and nobody ever answers the phone. Think they are working out of their homes. I wasn't with the service a month and called to cancel and of course nobody answers the phone so I left a message to cancel the account. I get an email from them stating I was on a contract and to cancel is going to cost $609.00 I couldn't believe it. Everytime I called again no answer but get an answer machine. I called my bank to have them stop the payment to them. Now they are calling and eaving messages so again I called and again no answer. I never committed to any contract. Also they never fixed my computer.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Selective Hearing

AUTHOR: Henry - (United States of America)

I am a customer of My Computer Works and I started on a 30 day trial and then became a customer on a one-year contract. This complainer is just twisting the truth.
There is a 30-day trial and there is a 1yr contract. You obviously chose the contract. You know why the contract is a good idea? because it obviously only takes you 5 days to screw up your computer again. That's right, you are actually responsible for the working condition of your PC. Just because everyone own a PC does not mean everyone should own one. I got the contract because I mess up my PC all the time. I mess it up much less now thanks to what I have learned from the MCW technicians that help me.
It just makes me sick to see people that can't take some personal responsibility so they waddle over to the internet to lie and complain. Seven people found your lies helpful! That's how manure is spread...
