Beware of Technicion.ca - it is Fake Technical Support Website

Online users are asked not to contact Technicion.ca at 1-855-215-4485 or other telephone numbers for technical support. And, they should also not follow instructions from callers who call them claiming to be technical support representatives from Technicion. This is because Technicion.ca is fake technical support website that tricks online users into thinking their computers need to be serviced. And, although the fake website claim they are Microsoft Silver Partner, we couldn't find such information on Microsoft's website.

Technicion's Fraudulent Website

Technicion.ca

If online users allow the scammers remote access to their computers, the scammers will pretend to work on their computers, install malicious software that will activate at a particular time, which will have the owners of the computers calling the fake technical support for help. This is how Technicion makes their money, by periodically letting their malicious software cause problem on their victims' computers.

The fake technical support website(Technicion) will demand money and threaten to hack online users' computers, lock them out of their computers, or remove all their important data from their computers if online users decide not to pay them. Therefore, online users who gave the scammers from Technicion to access their computers and who are now be threaten, are asked to disable their computer's internet connection by disabling WiFi or unplugging the ethernet cable, and let a trusted family member, friend or local technician check their computers for malicious software that the scammers may have installed.

Online users should never give out their credit card information over the phone to make payment. And, for online users who have already given Technicion their credit card information, are asked to contact their banks for help, to stop the fake website from continuously making fraudulent charges to their credit cards. The bank should be able to cancel the transactions or charges and refund their money.

    SCAM...SCAM...SCAM...FRAUD...FRAUD...FRAUD...Stay away from these b*stards. They pretend to fix your computer (while they install malware). They keep calling regularly.

    I paid them about 1 1/2 years ago . I've never let them back in my computer again even though they call very regularly with many different reasons to get in computer.

    For a while they kept claiming they were going to refund my money, but they needed computer access to do it. So far I've got at least 10 phone #'s blocked from them, but they keep trying. I got started with them from a link when I looked up Belkin router support .

      I got stung the same way. Changed passwords, credit cards, debit cards.Don't know what malware they installed. Keep calling back, actually said I'm on the dark web, showed pics of child p*rno that they said was associated with me. Trying to get touch with the FCC.

      Same thing happened to us. When I told the guy it didn't make any sense what they were wanting to do- the guy said I was too old to understand the nowadays instant money transfer online. Eventually, the "technician" started cussing us out on the phone. Big SCAM.

    I fell for Technicion a year ago September (2016). While online and having difficulties I received a message that my computer had viruses and to contact a Microsoft Verified Partner Tech Service to save my computers.

    It all sounded very legit and professional and paid over $300 for 6 months of service to all my computers in my house. After I handed my computer over to their remote contr (Log Me In Rescue).

    I watched while the so called "repairs" and wondered if they knew what they were doing? I'm not that tech savvy but the technician seemed to be more confused than I was! 8 hrs later they finally finished what they called repairs but my desktop lost the free Windows 10 upgrade and was returned to Windows 8.1. Very disappointing! Needless to say, I was not impressed and was starting to wonder if I had been scammed. Never used them again and let the 6 month contract expire.

    Last week I got a phone call from Technicion. I was informed that they were going out of business and they were refunding all of the customers over the past couple of years their money. After confirming my payment information where the refund was supposed to go, I was told I should see it in my bank account in approximately 3 hours. Here it is a week later and still no refund. Yes, as soon as 4 hours passed I contacted my bank and informed them of what had transpired and initiated a fraud alert with them.

    They are extremely fraudulent. A technician called Peter tried to get me to give him access to my bank account.
