Beware of Scams

HIGH ALERT! 12-24-2016: BEWARE OF SCAMS! I recently received a suspicious phone call from another state. The person claimed that my company had sold his mother computer service coverage for $350 and wanted to know what it was for. I had no idea what he was talking about and I don’t offer subscription for repair service. Soon after the call ended I realized that he or his mother had likely been scammed and the scam artist used my company name and information.

This is a very common scam. Though often the scam artist will claim to be from Microsoft or Google and say that your computer has a virus and proceed to sell you coverage at a similar price point. Please be weary of anyone selling you computer service coverage over the phone; and if you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be Angel Computer Services, know that I DO NOT offer subscription repair service and you are speaking to a scam artist.
