I have used iYogi in the past for servicing my laptop computer, and they always did good work in cleaning it of old files and speeding up my service. In the past month they called me and tried totell me I was due a refund for being a good customer for years. Like a fool, I allowed them access to my bank account online while I talked to them. They mistakenly returned $3,999.00 instead of $399.00. They had me keep $3500.00 and ask me to return to them $2500.00 in $500.00 gift cards I bought over a couple of days. They then wanted to get the other $1000 back from me giving them a bank transfer tor the remaining money. Stupidly, I did this. After I contacted my bank, I learned that not only was I getting the money from them, but that they were moving my money from one of my bank accounts to another to appear like it was being sent by them. I have filed a police report on what happened but doubt anything can or will be done. I have taken my laptop offline as I still continue to receive daily calls from them (my "friends"), asking me to let them repay me and denying any fraud that I accuse them of. They refuse to give me a legitimate phone number to call them at and only they will call me. No more! I am having my computer wiped of all mallware and have to open all new accounts at my bank.

If I could give zero stars or negative stars I would. This is possibly the worst company I have ever dealt with. They are all scammers, cheaters, and persistent on making life miserable with contacting me constantly after I initiated the first call to them. I am sorry that I ever did and now blame Apple for suggesting them. They are trying to refund me $299 and want to get into your computer to do so. I have never paid them $299 so I know they are full of crap. After going online recently I now know that there were hundreds or even thousands of others that are having the same experience. STAY AWAY from this crooks.

I used them back in 2013 which they did fix my computer, however I do not even have that computer anymore and they bombard my phone with calls. They are very rude and will not answer questions, when I ask for a representative they just hang up one me. Just recently they have been calling from and "unknown" Number and my service provider can not do anything about it.

I used this computer company online to attempt to keep my laptop free of virus and malware. I paid and the services were not as described and when I canceled the service. They have since closed the business and I am owed $299.99 according to the calls I have received from their employees that have called me up to 7 times a day using fraudulent phone numbers trying to get me to log back onto my laptop and let them have access to my service. I have told them to stop calling me and that I don’t want the refund any longer as this has become harassment with them calling using my own land line phone number more that 6 times a day at times. I just want them to stop harassing me. If I am entitled to a refund the company can send me a check or money order they are not getting access to any of my computers or equipment. Thank you in advance for your assistance in getting this company to stop harassing me up to 6 or more times a day.

Unsolicited Tech Support posing as Microsoft Corp. Solicited to purchase a multi-year tech support package. Never the support and the money and the IYOGI support disappeared. Later received a phone call saying that IYOGI was refunding money because they were closing down. They would not send the money in the mail by check. They wanted by email and my bank account nos. , bank name. They said that they would be sending a form letter to fill out for the refund,. When I asked to speak to a supervisor I was denied access and the person on the other end hung up.

I had a contract with Iyogi for a couple years. Then a couple years ago they informed me they could no longer honor the contract. They did not, however, refund any money. I am now getting calls purporting to be Iyogi employees wanting access to my computer so they can refund my money. I do not believe they are Iyogi employees, but scammers taking advantage of the Iyogi lawsuit. I simply tell the scammers that if they are Iyogi employees then they know my address so just send me the money, and hang up.

iYogi are a bunch of Tech Support Scammers. They will connect to your computer and charge you for "fixing it". Stay away from these scammers. I urge you, they will just steal your money

I worked for them as an onsite tech, the pay was already super low. Then when they got banned from doing business in the US I never got my last 1 1/2 weeks pay. Also they still advertise and take calls from US ... WTF!

I used them at one time and had okay results... now they keep calling me and will not take my number from their call list. They have all been rude and interrupted me continually. I wish there was a way to make them go away and stop interrupting my workday.

Purchased Malware prevention subscription from Iyogi two years ago. Cancelled subscription due to cost and non performance. From date of cancellation until this week (2/26/2018) I have been inundated with phone calls requesting access to my banking information so a $399.00 rebate can be deposited into my banking account. I know this is an email scam and I have blocked (if available) all phone number associated with each call. Some cannot be blocked since they've been rerouted through multiple directories. I no longer discuss anything with these people since the last call resulted in threats to me and my wife. This has to be stopped but I cannot find any remedies available on line. Each of the callers has an Indian/Pakistani accent and all demand access to my banking information. The only documentation I have is the blocked numbers of the earlier callers. The latest callers use numbers that cannot be blocked.

This guy who claimed to be Frank Walker said he was from Windows and wanted to give me a $199 refund for services that they had provided in the past. He proceeded to tell me that I would get the refund if I downloaded Team Viewer, which started to do. Then I became skeptical as I remembered this No Caller ID number calling over and over and over. When I told him that I did not want Team Viewer, he told me that he has access to my computer and will block it and that it could never be used again. At that point I was so angry I told him that I was going to call the people at windows and report him. Actually 0 stars, this company is rude and it is a telemarketing scam!

Received a phone call from a man who identified himself from iyogi stating I was due to a refund as the company was closing. They wanted me to go to my computer to effect the refund into my account. The man assisted me to have him take control of my computer. I realized this was a scam and disconnected the internet connection. The man threatened that my computer would be corrupted and unless I followed through I could just throw the computer away. I disconnected the telephone call and immediately restored my computer to a point before this connection. I believe I fixed the problem but this scam is scary. Please do something.

If I could give this company a negative review I would. I never write reviews for anything but for this company I feel compelled to express how awful they are to warn others to stay far far away.
Two years ago like most people I found Iyogi by accident. I was looking for apple support and thought it was legitimately apple. I quickly realized it wasn't. I canceled the transaction before my money could be taken out of my account. I thought that was the end of it.
For two years I heard nothing from them it was wonderful. However recently they have started incessantly calling me telling me I should update their software. I told them I thought I canceled their services years ago and I do not want them calling me anymore. I told them to put me on their "do not call list". They did not listen they continue to call me repeating how I need to update their software. I mostly ignore their calls.
The other day I accidentally picked up their call and they proceeded to tell me that in order to cancel their services they have to remotely access their software in my computer and delete it. (A year ago I had my whole hard drive wiped for other reasons so I highly doubted their software was still on my computer.) After they delete their software they will not bother me anymore. I am desperate for them to leave me alone so I warily grant them access to my computer. (Stupid mistake. I shouldn't have done that). I watch them like a hawk. A couple minutes into the remote access I stop it because I am getting nervous and I see they are trying to download something onto my computer. When they call me back they tell me they noticed I had some viruses and hacker activity on my computer and they need to continue their work to fix it. They proceed to tell me that that they will show me the hacker activity on my computer. They direct me to a website called geektyper.com This is a hacker simulator website. (it is made to look like a hacker website but it is NOT real it is a game). They told me this is where they were hacking into my computer accessing illegal material. If I do not let them access to my computer to take off this "hacker" then I could be in serious legal trouble and the FBI would be knocking at my door. They proceeded to tell me that because of this they could not take their "software" off my computer and would continue to call me. They offered to connect me to someone who would help take care of the problem and then once it was taken care of they would take off their software. At this point I was calling bull$#*!. I told them I would take care of the "hacker" myself by getting into contact with the genius bar or just some other computer company I trusted. This did not please them. They began to get hostile and started ranting to me about how they were reporting me to the FBI. At this point I had enough and hung up. Twenty minutes later I got another phone call from the same number who said they were from the FBI or some legal person. It was the same man I talked to earlier because I recognized his voice. Again I told them to stop calling and hung up. Five minutes later another call from the same number this time I ignored the call.
After hanging up I spent hours worrying over the fact they had access to my computer. DO NOT let them access to your computer. I ran a malware scan on my computer and it came up clean. There is nothing wrong with my computer. These people are scam artists and I know if I continued to listen to them they would have tried to make me pay for something I did not need. They use scare tactics to get people to pay for things. DO NOT waste your time with them. I wish there was a way to delete my number from their records.

I got a a call yesterday from someone claiming to be from iYogi. I told them I don't have that old computer anymore. Today I got two more calls from the same number stating that my internet connection has some illegal activity on it and they (iYogi) want to access our network to find out what the problems are. "It is included in our service that I paid for in 2014." I know that I didn't buy a 4 year contract, so they should not still owe me any free services.
They were very pushy and persistent. When I hung up, they called back. I wasted over $200 in September of 2014. If this even was iYogi calling me, I don't want them anywhere near any of my current equipment. If this wasn't iYogi calling, I really don't want some other scammer getting into my network.

I purchased $800 worth of service from IYOGI 4 yrs ago. It was suppose to last 5 yrs. I quit using them 1 1/2 yrs ago because of poor service and them shutting down. Well they have called me almost every day and sometimes 2-3 times a day since, at all hours of the day/night. I've asked them nicely to quit calling, I've yelled at them rudely to stop calling, asked to be taken off their call list, I've talked to them in jibber jaber nonsense language, told them they have the wrong number, that I don't have a computer, let them talk to air, told them about Jesus and all liars go to the lake of fire, you name it. It has become a household thing when we see their number come up what our next approach will be and we have become pretty creative. Sometimes we just start telling them about lotions, dr appts and body ailments and give them no chance to speak. They will eventually hang up but they still WILL NOT quit calling back.... Never, never, never have any dealings with these people. Once you do there is no end.....

I paid Iyogi $400 dollars. I called back spoke to the same lady, and now she says they are Tech Support. They want to quickly take remote control access over your computer and sabotage the software. These people are a scam, and malicious. After having them take remote control access over my computer days later after having Norton they are still trying to attack my computer. These people are atrocious. Please stay away from them, it really is for your own, and for your pockets sake.

I had no problem with my computer in 2015 when I received a call that said it was from Microsoft. I was told I had a virus and before i knew it I was authorizing someone from IYogi to take over my computer. After being shown online bogus lists of virus on my computer I then lost $200 for a protection contract. Then I had trouble with my computer. After taking it to be de-bugged to a local Tech I was told this was all a hoax. Every day now I receive a telephone call from them even though I have told them do not call me again. At this point it is harassment. I intend to report them to the FDC.

I keep receiving calls from iYogi every day saying they will refund my money, but I have to go www.teamviewer.com/en to get my money back. I refused to go to their site and I said to them if you are going to refund my money, just refund my money, you have my address and phone # and just do it, and they hung up the phone on me.

I had iyogi for 2 yrs and then cancelled it back in 2014. last night i had a phone call from them saying my info on my computer is outdated. i do not know how they got my new number. i hung up on them but i know they will call back again. they cost way to much money and they didn't want to refund my money back in 2014. they are useless and i would not recommend them. i have bask now for 2 yrs and they do cost money when you are on a fixed income. they to are getting cancelled. i have verizon and they will work on my computer no extra charge.

Since 20 days i am getting calls from techclub company which is known as global technology. They were telling me that they were from iYogi. i know it is complete a scam call. when i agreed to pay them the $1200 they told there actual name. the company ring master of the scam is Rajat chandani. Some time before i was working on behalf of iYogi on legal matter with Vishal dhar. By the way i am a lawyer. Thinking to put a lawsuit on Vishal dhar to stop this. How they dare to give my details to any scammers ? They have putted syskey password on my computer. I have all the video recording for this. Lets see how much i can recover from Vishal Dhar on this matter.

After numerous problems with their service including trying to sell me unnecessary software and hardware, I uninstalled their software. Since then I've received an increasing number of phone solicitations from a call center asking for access to my computer. Currently I receive 3-4 calls every day from unknown numbers, no caller ID, numbers missing a digit, and Dummy numbers from all over the United States. No matter how many times I ask them to stop, the calls only increase in frequency. Last week someone from iYogi gave me the email address [email protected] with instructions on how to cancel my membership. My email bounced back as undeliverable. Today, their representative asked me to pay them $100 to have my name removed from their systems. He said five of their technicians would be assigned to the task and it would take them less than eight hours. How do we stop this harassment?

I had IYogi for 3-4 years, at first you had to stay on the phone and try to understand them, then they took control of your computer, they did a good job, the, everytime you used the serviced they wanted money for something, then I heard they went out of business, I wanted some money back, they called many times each day. Today, I talked with someone named John Carter??? with an Indian accent. Wanted to give me $250 back, when he was putting it into my account, a mistake, put in $3250, then wanted me to go to Walmart to get a moneygram to return it. I told him to just take it back out, couldn't do that. Well I'm not going to send a moneygram, I called the police and my bank. tomorrow I am changing the account number but leaving his $3000 in the old one. Keeping the $250.00. Little $#*!s, just a bunch of thieves and when it started, they were good and did a good job.
