    Email looked legit, PDF invoice looked legit, called and they wanted me to download teamviewer and launch it and give them my Device ID and password. I said why do you have to remote into my PC to cancel, he said the Device ID was the refund code generated by them and they wouldn't get any personal information. I said I was an IT professional and I know that that ID was not generated by them and I wasn't gonna give them remote access...

    Of course I have no "yearly contract for data storage" from "Geek Squad Team". They can't even put the dashes in the right place on the phone number, which suggests it's coming from a foreign country like Russia or something. By the way, I use Norton VPN and Norton AntiTrack blocker at all times. Who writes stuff like "we have come to know"?
