I received a call early Monday Morning around 7:30 AM from a company called, ZenCompUSA stating my computer was acting up, which I was having problems with it. They convinced they would fix the problem by installing a Root Kit Removal and IP Reconfiguration that would fix the problem. I could take it to Best Buy, but would need to box up my computer take it in, Best Buy would ship it off, and it could take up to two weeks before I get it back and cost $500.00. They could do it remotely and only charge $400.00. So with much hesitation and questions, I gave them a check number with my account info, the reconsidered. Called my Credit Union and put stop payment on the check. Thought I had taken care of the problem. Checked my account two or three days later, and saw they had used a different check number and different company name, but same dollar amount $400.00. Check cleared my account so now I am out $400.00.Show more...
I really don't know how scams work, but I have reported it to my Credit Unionfor them to handle. I am also closing my account.
