I set out to purchase a 3 year subscription to AVAST antivirus because I believe the product is good and the company is both reputable.
I googled up a website to order the software by typing in the word AVAST into Google.
I got to a web site that sold me a three year subscription for $35.94 USD . Up front it looked like I was in the right place. Unknown to me I did not get a real license key but rather got a temporary license key for the Free version of the software that the real company Avast offers to anyone who want to try out their software.
3 months later when the subscription expired by suprise, I started my research. I contacted the company that took my money at the following number 888-846-9590 and they said they only were a company that “assisted in downloading the free version” and they also provided technical support. I was ripped off. I was lead to believe I was buying the real product an sold a free version of the software by a company who is in no way related to AVAST.
I had tried to buy the sofware and was faked out of my money by a spoof website.
Recently I looked on Google to see if the trick site still was there, I did not see it, but be aware it may surface again under a different name.
is a good place to find more detailed information.
I lost my money to the crooks 🙁
