I do not have such a computer protection plan with them, though I fell victim to a similar scheme by WEMO TECH SUPPORT a few years ago. Who knows, they may have reinvented themselves.

Here is a copy of my response to Premium Techie:

You are a well-known scam, and I'm forwarding your email to the FBI and the Federal Trade Commission. Don't you dare try to charge me anything. I never had an account with you. I hope ladybug, who ever you are, you'll not get taken in by these guys.

I have an FTC Complaint form open, and will report them. I would appreciate your assistance in checking out Premium Techie, and alerting your customer base about them. Thanks!

Sincerely,

Harald M

    I called. I told them to send a check. I gave them my p.o. box and said thank you. Time will tell. I will say I do not remember them. I think it is a scam so that they can get into one's computer. I do not think a check will come. I will post if I am wrong. gh

    Here is another scam.

    I was scammed by these people in January. Now they sent me an email asking me to cal them so I can receive a refund that they'd promised I'd get within 10 working days(that promise was in January). I've reported them to BBB.YES! IT'S A SCAM!

  • July 9, 2020 at 3:25 PM by an anonymous user from: San Francisco, California, United States

    Yes, I just received the same email and they want to refund me and couldn't by check because of COVID. I don't think I had an account with them, but I have similar problems with another company. It seems like it could be a scam. Trying to figure it out.
