Additional Complaint Information
Our file contains a pattern of complaints from consumers alleging MYTECHHELP LLC did not properly identify themselves as a third party tech support. These consumers feel they were misled into agreeing to an account with monthly fees for tech support and assistance from MYTECHHELP LLC.
MYTECHHELP LLC has responded to these complaints by cancelling the consumer's account and issuing refunds.
On, February 15, 2013, BBB sent certified correspondence to MYTECHHELP LLC requesting their voluntary cooperation in resolving complaints on file with BBB and providing steps it will implement to eliminate the pattern of customer complaints.
On April 2, 2013, MYTECHHELP LLC responded to BBB's concerns. MYTECHHELP LLC has implemented the following procedures to avoid further issues:
* MYTECHHELP LLC has revised the "IVR's" (interactive voice response) and "Introductory Scripts" to include language which properly identifies the company
* MYTECHHELP LLC has implemented a "zero tolerance" policy for any misrepresentation by agents
MYTECHHELP LLC believes these changes will solve these complaints.
On July 8, 2013, BBB reviewed the company's file and found the pattern of complaints still exists.
BBB will continue to monitor the complaint activity of the company and update the Business Review as needed.
