This company recently sold my mother virus/ malware removal and secuirity program for a very large amount of money. I am very conerned she was taken advantage of.

 

I'm very defensive and am trying to be to the point and polite.

 

Is anyone familier with thiscompany?

It is a legitimate company... Value for money is another thing. It depends on what you value and how much money you have.

 

She has not been "ripped off" but has possibly bought an expensive service, assuming they do actually provide the service. Sales tactics and business ethic are a completely different subject.

 

Personally, I am totally in support of start-up companies like this. Imagine if these people had turned their attentions to creating malware, and then your family encountered them. It could be a lot worse.

From the bit of research I just did it seems a legit company, but it is brand new:

domain registered: 08-may-2014

first Tweet: 5-jul-2014

 

So I don't think you'll get lots of reviews or opinions with a company this young.

upon doing my own research, I found this forum pertaining to Vtec. I've used the service myself and they have done an amazing job fixing my computer. I am not computer literate at ALL. So after reading this forum i can safely say now that i now know that they are a legitimate company and 

I just wanted to make sure i was not dooped out of my money and time.
