Beware!!

Category : Scam , Senior , Software , Tips

Recently more than ever I have noticed little software companies are popping up all over the world. Weather they are selling  or re-selling computer software. Sometimes it may seem like they are scamming.  These companies tend to trick individuals into thinking they need additional software to keep themselves and their computers protected . This post is about a recent experience. Below are a couple screen shots so you can have an idea of what to look for.

While I was trying to dispute the charges I was put on hold for 45 minutes. This leads me to believe this company is not easy to work with.

Here is their contact information:

Password Issues with Email?

email-security

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So to calm your frustrations a bit, if lost and you think it may be impossible to recover your Yahoo password, just realize nothing is ever impossible… If you can get to the right screen you can enter an alternative email and or your telephone and Yahoo should get back to you within 24 hours.

Now for the explanation, Yahoo does not have a telephone support number. In fact neither do most other free email providers. The big three are Microsoft’s Hotmail (now called Windows Live Hotmail), Yahoo! Mail and Gmail, together accounting for well over 1 billion users. What it all boils down to is that if just 1% of Yahoo users lost their passwords that would be just over 3 million users. Although a large number of users recover their password via security questions, backup email accounts or by using mobile phone. There are still some that do not have this option.

Before you get upset, there is a perfectly good reason for this. Because of the high volume of fraud, Yahoo and others have a similar process. NEVER call a phone support number to get help with your email! This is only being done for your own protection. If you need help recovering your stuff you can always email or text, or cal me: 916.534.3245/matt@mdccomputersolutions.com
