South Florida Tech Group- Owner- Andrew Scott-  I use to be a tech for this company until they started docking my pay for supposed late invoices which were never late and deducting 10 percent at the end of the month for not sell 3 Microsoft license which by the way they use kms activator which is highly illegal and will be reported to Microsoft and also 3 mp plans which by the way is useless as they log in to your computer and damage it to force customer into os installs and charging an arm and a leg for a key which they use KMS activator that is found on the net to illegally activate windows. This company isnt local and is robbing techs and customers. They upsell amazon products at a ridiculous rate and are NO LONGER BBB ACCREDITED !!!! All techs that have gotten scammed by this company dont be afraid to come foward as contracts arent valid. He needs to be operating in florida with a real storefront which there are none. There are a bunch of fake google listings. Cant wait till this company is shut down, i almost forgot to mention how they charge tax on LABOR!

AUTHOR: Andy - (United States)

Andrew Scott is a horrible person and makes his money buy extorting his technicians and training them to exort clients. The process he has is designed to be long and tedious which results in a technician being docked 15-30% of his salary. Giving Andrew 60-70% of the commission instead of the tecnician. Andrew uses KMS activators ALL the time and instructs us to do so. He has also told us to sabotage cllients. 

Andrew uses Amazon and just has his employees mark up Amazon prices hundreds of dollars..

He had is website deisgned over seas by contract to hire developers that created a invoicing system on the SFTG website. He thought he could design it better than Quickbooks - TOTAL FAIL

I am also a former employee there.  They promised benefits and a steady pay schedule which was never received.  Too the point at one time the owner was sending out mass text messages to the employees saying he could not pay.   They make you sign an agreement that they can sue you if you post any bad reviews about them.  They use scare tactics so you don't speak out about what is going on in the company

You are trained to run software on peoples computer that just find basic things like tracking cookies and make them think they need a $200 windows install to secure their data.  They want you to tell them they and their information is completely comprised which in the case of an actually virus is true but Andrew Scott the owner says to do it when their are just tracking cookies.

They make you sell Microsoft licenses at $299 and then when a customer needs a reinstall they need to pay again because that license is just for 1 computer and can not be used again.

I have remoted into businesses where they were using pirated adobe software installed by the tech!  They also use the KMS activator which is pirated software to install licenses.

The best thing we could do is report them to the software manufactures and let the real companies put an end to this.
