Additional Complaint Information

BBB files indicate the business has a pattern of complaints concerning service issues.

Specifically, complaints allege receiving unsolicited calls from the business allegedly they're responding to computer automated error messages from the consumer's computer and are calling to fix the problem.  Complaints allege the business representatives are claiming affiliation with Microsoft Corporation as Microsoft Certified Technicians.  Ultimately consumer's allege discovering the callers are not with Microsoft Corporation but with the business trying to sell technical computer support.  Some complaints allege consumers allowed the caller access to their computer only to be redirected to the business website and being offered a monthly subscription of computer service by the business.

In some responses provided by the business they've stated technician support staff are Microsoft certified technician people.  The business also state in other responses they do not represent Microsoft, rather their technicians are Microsoft Certified meaning they've passed aptitude test for which certification is granted by Microsoft for support provision on Microsoft systems.

BBB sent certified correspondence to the business April 2014 requesting their voluntary cooperation in eliminating the pattern of customer complaint. BBB will update this aspect of the Business Review once information becomes available.

Additional Information

Fort Worth Better Business Bureau sent the business a Letter of Inquiry April 2014 inquiring of their technicians as Microsoft Certified or Microsoft Representatives. The business responded to the BBB by stating "Our technicians are Microsoft Certified, but as they are our technicians they are FMCD Representatives. They are not Microsoft Representatives."

Fort Worth Better Business Bureau called the North America Microsoft Regional Service Center regarding their Microsoft Certification Program (MCP). An individual's certification status can be verified by requesting an access code and transcript ID from the employee or candidate. Once the information is obtained the consumer can contact Microsoft Corporation to obtain a certification transcript. Consumers may contact Microsoft regarding fraudulent use of their name

The BBB cautions consumers to be aware of scams relating to suspicious calls about security software protection claiming affiliations with legitimate companies. Consumers often receive offers for free security scans, and/or alarming messages to try to convince them that their computer is infected. Then, attempt to sell services to resolve any computer issues. The business may obtain remote access to their computers and personal information which could leave the computer vulnerable to malware programs. On January 2014 the Federal Trade Commission issued a Scam Alert relating to Tech Support Scams. Consumers may also report any possible scams to the FTC.
