hi yes like a fool i got coned by pc wizards. They rang up to say my computer was reporting error. Thinking there was something wrong like a fool i let them take over my computer. Any way it ended up costing me £29 for a trial 1 month. looking them up on the net i found they are scamers. Shit. so when they came to get the £29 from my bank there was nothing in for them to take. they have my bank card details which im changing before theres any money in my account. also reformated my computer to get rid of any software they put on. as i gave them my details can you tell me if they can make me pay. My wife is getting phone calls from funny tel numbers while im at work asking for me. we know its from pc wizard. its makeing me feel ill and thinking of going to the police . i know how silly i been. help please. mick Please warn everyone if they get a phone call saying windows is repoting ERROR. just hang up.

Don't just leave it because you don't have any money in your account contact your bank and cancel the payments. If you do not have the funds you may be charged by the bank and end up paying more.

You can turn of remote connection on your computer which may stop anyone from getting access to it again.Maybe do the reverse of this.

You are not the bad guy. You are the victim of a con. Hope you have stopped your Cards and told your Bank what happened and cancelled any payment.

Happens numerous times a day - Banks are used to dealing with these sort of conning thieving scammers and will ensure no payment can be claimed by them from your old or new Account. You should be able to ring your Banks Fraud Dept. to do the necessary.
