Howdy all,

I am looking for information on a company call GEEKSANTIMALWARE.COM. Has anyone heard of them and have any details. I've googled there name and the information I have found is not encouraging. They did some 'work' on my elderly parents computers for which they paid a ridiculous amount of money for. 

Thanks

No never heard of them, what is it you're asking? If they paid money you can file fraud claims.

Well they exist and seem to be based in the USA / Canada, but, by here, they know how to charge. You could buy a new computer for 90 days of their 'Ultimate' support -

Scroll to the bottom of the page. You might be a little bit slower getting problems resolved at BC, but you will be a lot better off financially !

Thanks for the replies.
I came up with the same search results. Was trying to confirm if they were legitimate or if anyone else had done 'business' with them. As far as I can tell they have only been around for 4 or 5 months, the address is hoaky because it only gives a Suite number, no street address, and when I google the address on their website results come up showing another company using the same address, PC CareGlobal. Anyway, credit card company has reversed the charges and is investigating. Bottom line: as far as I can tell it is a scam and we'll be filing complaint.
