It started with the same problems as before in 3 months, now the company does not answer support emails of my problems. since they already are paid, they do not want to do any help to clean the cpu. I see 3 problems here, 1. taking money on the fact to help for 1 year, 2. failing to honor this contract. 3. selling me products that do not work. I only use this cpu for emails, banking and business, thus I do not go to web sites that would bring problems..
Desired Settlement: I am seeking that they keep their word, fix my cpu. If they are failing at this, I want a refund, since I could have put the programs on my cpu that they did for about 60 dollars, not 300 dollars..

Complaint: I contacted them with a problem and was given a phone number to call. I called the provided number numerous times but was put on hold each time, stating they are servicing customers and to leave a message and they would call me back. I knew that would not happen as I am in Germany. I left an additional message for them to drop me a message with they would be available. I never got any message, this went on all day. I ask for a contract as to what there services would cover, never got a response. I asked for a refund of their cost of $299.99 today. Their 48hour grace period is almost over.
Desired Settlement: $299.99 refund

Complaint: Use of scare tactics and pressure by suggesting dire consequences if immediate action is not taken. Will not refund full amount Company contacted on line. Thought I was on Microsoft web site. Could not open email, they told me people in Nigeria hacked my email address. Took over my computer and showed me email activity by the Nigerians. I was told anything and anyone I have contacted online is in danger as well as business transactions and banking. I was pressured into purchasing their program before more damage was done. I was told that if I waited me and anyone I have contacted were in grave danger of these hackers. I purchased the program. I then contacted my bank who assured me I was not in danger on that aspect. I contacted my niece who gave me the Microsoft number and contacted Microsoft. They told me I was probably scammed. Microtek can not show me what people in Nigeria are doing. I was told to cancel my credit card, file a dispute with American Express and get a new email address. I was told Microsoft was aware of these scams. I immediately followed their advise and deleted the Microtek program off my computer. I did not contact them by phone because I was under the impression it was a scam. American Express received paper work from Microtek stating that I didn't request a refund within 48 hours. They are still disputing the claim for me. I called the toll free number 1-800-******** and have had three conversations and have sent two emails. They go to India and the people in India will not give me a full refund. Today they say they will refund $149.99 but will keep $100.00 for the technicians that worked on my computer. They will not give me a number to call the technician branch of Microtek and when I emailed the Hawaii company it gets bounced back and not sent. The address on the paperwork sent to American Express has their address as ******* ********* St. Ste 106/553 not ****** ****** **** Apt. 241 but both have the same 1-800-******** number for contacts. The original address did not appear in your data gathering part of the complaint. Resolution for me is an acknowledgement of the use of scare tactics to convince me to order something I was unsure of. A complete refund. People in Hawaii need to be informed on how these people in India are representing their product and the tactics used on people who are on their site. Purchase date was October 19, 2013. My Microtek support number is **********. My American Express dispute reference numbers are ******** and *******. The people in India are named ****** and *****, both supposed supervisors. The amount paid was $249.99. The say they are going to credit me $149.99 but are keeping $100.00 for technicians. Again, it was their technicians that showed me the Nigerian email activity that Microsoft says can't be accessed. This problem started the very day I was told by Microtek that my email had been hacked by Nigerians! Their scare tactics are cruel and their method of obtaining a sale are unethical. Full refund is requested and jail time for whoever trains these people!
Desired Settlement: Apology for sales tactics and a full refund of $249.99.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/10/25) */ From: Microtek Support LLC (mailto:********************.com) Sent: Friday, October 25, 2013 10:37 AM To: **** ******** Subject: Microtek Support LLC. Complaint Case #: ******** Importance: High Hi *******, This email refers to the complaint logged by Mrs. *** ***** **** the above complaint number. This complaint was initially logged with us on Oct-24-2013 via an email to which we promptly responded within 24 hours. We followed it up with the customer but could not conclude to a resolution until she called in yesterday i.e. Oct-24-2013 and agreed to the partial refund of USD 149.99 which has already been issued. Customer also agreed to the withdraw the investigation she has logged with her card issuer i.e. American Express. We considered this complaint to be closed internally until we received your notification. We have sent her a confirmation email as agreed along with refund receipt. Customer was ok with the outcome and has yet not come back to us. We attach here the copy of exchange of emails and the legal document (Docusign) which has the electronic signature of the customer. Please let me know if there is any more information you require to close the complaint. You can reach me on 1-800-******** from 08:00 AM till 04:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time) or email me at ********************.com. Regards, **** *******, Complaints Handling Team, Microtek Support LLC. Final Consumer Response /* (3000, 7, 2013/10/28) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) We did not come to any kind of agreement. I accepted the $149.99 partial refund because I could not get ******, who is also the supervisor, to give me a number for the technicians or to the home base in Hawaii. The only people I can talk to are in India. ****** said he could only refund the $149.99. The other hundred covered the cost of the technicians. He would not put me in contact for them even after I explained that they are the ones who showed me the bogus email activity by the Nigerians. I then asked for a number for the home base in Hawaii. He would not give me that either. I told him I wanted to file my complaint with them. He would not give me a phone number or a working email address. After several emails and three phone conversations and constant stonewalling I took the $149.99. I did contact American Express following our conversation. I told the complaint department that I was getting a partial refund but to extend the dispute because I was contacting the better business bureau in Hawaii since I could not get past Microtek support in India. All conversations and emails go to India to ****** or ***** and no further. I still request the additional $100.00 dollars paid supposedly to technicians who were hired by or through Microtek Support. Again, I request a full refund. I hope I get an apology. The last conversation I had with ****** was heated and combative. It certainly was not an amicable conclusion to this debacle. I told those people in India that they ought to be ashamed of themselves and I thanked them for a very expensive lesson. I did not say I was satisfied with the outcome. I was forced into accepting the partial refund due to frustration, just like I was scared into purchasing their services in the first place. Full refund, please.

Customer has been issued with the full refund now and is happy with the outcome. Please see the enclosed attachment of our exchange of emails and the customer's acceptance to the outcome. Please let me know if there is any more information you require to close the complaint. You can reach me on 1-800-******** from 08:00 AM till 04:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time) or email me at ********************.com. Regards, **** *******, Complaints Handling Team, Microtek Support LLC.
