You seem unable to post a simple message so, if you were scammed, it is hardly surprising they tried to cheat you. Be more careful in future and don't believe anything strangers tell you on the phone

My Experience with PCCare247.com(PC Care 247) is Excellent

I never knew a small software glitch in Microsoft Word could have resulted in such a fracas the other night. But that is what exactly happened while I sat down to prepare an important piece of documentation my boss had asked me to prepare for the annual general meeting which was supposed to take place the next morning. Luckily, not being much of a computer geek I managed to store a list of numbers for the top-notch premier tech support entities. And on top of this list was WWW.PCCare247.com site and even though I had never ever felt the need for calling up such an organization before, deep in my heart I knew this organization would go on to solve the issue on hand. I don't know maybe it was just that the name had a sweet ring to it. So, I ended calling the 24x7 tech support organization and I was very warmly greeted by a techie named Juliet Khan on the other. Girl was this good!! You betcha he was a techno geek and knew all the nitty-gritties about MS Office. And well, as It happened Juliet was instrumental in not only diagnosing the problem on hand but also coming out with an effective solution. He right away knew a crucial update was all that was required to get MS Word running once again. And what to say the lad was right indeed. The problem was solved right away!!! Thanks, to PC Care 247 and Juliet Khan for being the proverbial knights in the shining armor. Cheers!!! to PCCare247.com once again for a job well done. Keep the good work going guys; for no amount of accolades can sum up the genuine efforts made by the organization to keep an ever so demanding clientele satisfied.

I know this company. I was called from 206-855-**** (Washington) and was told I had issues with my computer and they wanted access.

This is the second call, from a different number, I received and the second time I was disconnected because I was asking questions. I reported them both, so please keep calling and I will be able to sue for harassment and shut this dump down!

I tried numerous downloads on the Internet which needless to say didn't work. Richard really brought it home by fixing my Outlook Express email problem for me through online remote support. Thanks !

Guest

The person I chatted with really tried to help me with my problem. I would recommend him to anyone!

Calling to tell me computer has been hacked

This was easliy the most unpleasant phone call I have ever received. It took me asking three times for her to finally identify herself as 24/7 PC Care. She wanted me to get to my computer "quickly" because it had been hacked. I said it was running fine and she said in the background she could show me what was wrong. I asked her to take us off the call list and she kept going! She said they had to help fix my PC, she was rude and kept telling me to get in front of my computer. I finally said I am in front of my computer, it is fine, please take us off your call list.

24sevenpccare is a scam company trying to "help" people with over the phone tech support. Your lucky you didn't get sexually harassed over the phone like I have several times from them, just because I didn't want their service and wanted to be taken off their call list. Jerks

I think you are right Paul, also had an bad experience with 24/7 PCCare. Both are different companies and I found their domain over internet 24/7 PCCare(24sevenpccare.com) and PCCare247(pccare247.com).

Guest

PCcare247 and 24/7 PCCare are not the same companies. PCCare247 never calls customers to show such fake errors.

PC Care 247 PC Care 247 antivirus.pccare247.com

The other day, when I was reading an article on "˜how to secure your computer against phishing scam', it came to my knowledge that even the slow speed of a computer comes among the symptoms of viruses. This revelation was shocking as my computer had been suffering from the same and I was taking it for granted, because of the old age of my computer system. It was so frightening; I was going crazy as everything was at stake, my assignments, important contacts, crucial financial information, which in case, passed on to an illegal source would create havoc in my life. I was perplexed and had moved from pillar to post to prevent this vulnerability. However, had I know it beforehand that PCCare247 delivers end to end solutions for such nasty; I would have saved my time. But as they say "˜better late than never', with the help of PCCare247.com, I was able to get rid of the viruses menace on my cherished computer.
