Got email today stating my geek squad annual maintenance is ending today 12/15/20 and they will be charging me 299.00 for the annual fee! I have no geek squad account. Tried calling the number; of course no answer! Responded back to email that I will be reporting them and that they better not charge me of this bogus scam! Of course, in the email it says responding to them will not stop the charge!

Please get these criminals!

CAN WE STOP THIS FRAUD

On November 19, 2020, at about 10am EST - I called the Geek Squad technical support to ask that they not renew my membership, since I am being treated for Prostrate Cancer and could not afford it. Everything went well for a while, then the technical support person said I they would give me back the money that they had billed my checking account for, and also a rebated from last year since I do not use the computer for business. The amount was for $350.00 and he had control of my computer. The amount was ready to go into my checking account, and for some reason, when I typed in the amount it came out to $3, 500.00 instead and the technical guy started to panic and said he would lose his job. I told him to just change the amount, but he replied that he could not do that. He recommended I get four American Express gift cards each for $500.00 that I did after much running around. He stayed on my speaker cell phone for nearly 3 hours, I got the cards then read the numbers off to him, and never heard from him again. I am out $2, 000.00 that I can't afford. And the $3, 500 that was put into my account, was gone at end of day. This is a crime, I am a 75 year old Vietnam Veteran suffering from prostrate cancer, and expected to be treated better than this. The tech person who had the West Michigan phone number of 1-616-371-4550 and 1-616-647-3257 that he called from. Please help, I have also filed this complaint to the Michigan Attorney Generals Office.
my name is Arthur B. Fox, pittsburgh, PA.

Contacted by email for a 299.00 membership renewal for Geek Squad

When I called number to cancel it to me to website to cancel but my security popped up and said do not open site will take over computer

Received email saying my free subscription for PC Computer World had expired and I am to be billed $149.99. I never had a subscription. I spoke with one person, "Mike" I believe from India - phone is out of Deerfield, Wisconsin. I had to interrupt my first call with them due to business, and they pursued me quite diligently to be able to put the moneys back into my account. This was far too complex - and strange -- to be a normal cancellation process. Companies never pursue someone so steadfastly to return money to an account. I called them back. When the phone was answered, there was no company name - just "hello". I told them I would report them to the Better Business Bureau. Beware!

I am a victim of identity theft so I did not provide any information to them.

I have copied the email but it dosn't show that it had logos of the geek squad on it. It has my name email, old address, and old phone number on the email.

I called the number and advised this was not me and they kept hanging up in my face when I explained it was fraudulent.

Received via email - [censored] phishing - beware - don't call them, don't unsubscribe.

When I called them to find our who they were and why they were charging me when I haven't used Geek Squad for many years, they became rude and told me they will charge my account if I don't go online with them and cancel the account. Thanks to this website I figured they were scamming me.

Initially the phone call said that I was charged $299 for my Geek Squad auto-renewal. Per the message, if I wanted to contest it, I would need to call 1-800-374-0827. As a current Geek Squad member, I called the number back to cancel the auto-renewal. They said in order to cancel my account I needed to get "online" and connect my computer to their "server" to finalize the cancelation. When I asked why I couldn't just cancel over the phone, that it was important that I connect my computer to their server.
