Complaint Review: OmniTech support
OmniTech support Passed themselves off as Microsoft Support and ruined my computer. Internet
*Consumer Comment: This company Does claim official connection with Microsoft
*UPDATE Employee: There is no way, we can pass ourselves off as Microsoft and indeed we never do so.
All this would cost $359 for two years, i said no thanks, then he gave a sales pitch on one for $199, after i said no thanks, he tried for the $99 special for 6 months. I informed him that i purchased vista and have the receipt and serial number and all i needed was how to combine the two monitors. He stated that all you get when you purchase a windows product is the disk and if you want any more information about installation and operating proceedures, you would have to purchase a package from him. I questioned him about working for microsoft or him saying that he was a certified microsoft technician means he actually works for microsoft. I said anyone can say that they are a certified mirosoft technicial, but do you work for "Microsoft"???? He got upset, arrogant, and would not answer the question.
I asked if he knew how to combine the two monitors in vista and he said yes, but it would cost me. I figured right then that he probably did not work for microsoft. It was too late. He ended the session. I went back into microsoft flight simulator and after only minutes, it froze. He did something to get back at me.
I called omni support again later and the next technician said he would fix the problem, accessed my computer and started the same pitch again. After i figured out that he was after money again and confronted him, he did the same thing. This time it was even worse.
I tried to call back and they must have my telephone number, after it answers and goes through the sequence, it just hangs up on me. I tried a different number and they answer until you mention your name and then, bang, they hang up on you. They got into the registry because i watched them with the mouse pointer and damaged it so if you say no to the sales pitch, you get screwed and have to deal with them. I was lucky not to get any of their scam warranty plans, but the blasted my computer.
It was brand new and ran perfect before i called them and they got access to it. I ran flight simulator x for two to three hours at a time. Now after 2 or 3 minutes, it slows down and freezes.I called microsoft and they informed me that there is nothing they can do as omintech is not microsoft, it is it's own company and i would have to deal with them to get my computer back the way it was. I would like to warn anyone within shouting distance to stay clear of omnitech and don't ever let them take over your computer.
