Complaint Review: UTH - Nationwide
UTH Urgent Tech Support I have been called several times that my PC was about to crash. They say that they are techs connected with Microsoft Corporation and they get a warning from my PC. I fell for it the first time and they almost got $177.00 out of me. I was able to stop them from receiving the money and removed the icons off my desktop, one of which is used for criminal activity. New York City and London
*Consumer Suggestion: Do more than just remove icons
*Consumer Comment: REINSTALL YOUR COMPUTER
I have been called 4 times by different individuals but each had an Indian accent. The first time I fell for the scam. Lucas said that my PC was about to crash. He keep getting warnings when I try to open my emails that someone has hacked into my hardrive. They said they would remove the damage but would have to go in and take control of my computor. They wanted $177.78 and wanted me to give them payment with my debit card. They did go into my computer and showed my the result of someone hacking but I think now that they did it while they distracted me and had me give them information.
They never received the money they wanted for doing the scam. I told them I would not have money on the debit card for three days and they said that would be OK. They wanted me to send them an e-mail that I authorized the payment and that I knew it was non-refundable.
They had me write that UTH is not connected with Microsoft Corporation nor any other corporation, but when they call, each time they say that they are technitions for microsoft.
Fortunately I was able to cancal the card when they were going to get the payment. I also removed the icons they put on my desktop, one was definately is used for criminal activity.
