yes like a fool i got coned by pc wizards.
They rang up to say my computer was reporting error.
Thinking there was something wrong like a fool i let them take over my computer.
Any way it ended up costing me £29 for a trial 1 month.
looking them up on the net i found they are scamers.
so when they came to get the £29 from my bank there was nothing in for them to take.
they have my bank card details which im changing before theres any money in my account.
also reformated my computer to get rid of any software they put on.
as i gave them my details can you tell me if they can make me pay.
My wife is getting phone calls from funny tel numbers while im at work asking for me.
we know its from pc wizard.
its makeing me feel ill and thinking of going to the police .
i know how silly i been.
Please warn everyone if they get a phone call saying windows is repoting ERROR. just hang up.
To everyone who reads this.
please tell your friends and everyone who is using a computer.
That if they get a phone call saying windows is reporting error to hang up.
even put it on the bottom of your emails.
hope this helps someone,not to be conned.
hi all i think what im asking is.
now i know its a scam and have not paid them.(no money in account)
Made sure my account is safe.
and changed the card details i gave them
can just tell them where to go?
or do i need to do more
Thanks for that
i feel sick because of this.
i did think it was ok at the time thats why i said yes,
but when i found out it was a scam i stoped the payment.
thank you for your reply
i feel like im the bad guy?.
You are not the bad guy. You are the victim of a con. Hope you have stopped your Cards and told your Bank what happened and cancelled any payment.
Happens numerous times a day - Banks are used to dealing with these sort of conning thieving scammers and will ensure no payment can be claimed by them from your old or new Account. You should be able to ring your Banks Fraud Dept. to do the necessary.
i found my bank couldnt stop the payment because i had given my details out,only way round it on their advice was to stop the card and request another,its not like stopping a direct debit or standing order
