Type of a scam Tech Support
This company is a scam technology repair business in Edmonton. They advertise fixing computers, hard drives, and other devices. On February 6, 2017, I took my hard drive to be repaired. Since then, I have had to deal with the company lying to me about why the hard drive was never fixed, and they keep saying they will have it done after a certain number of weeks. When I call after a few weeks to see if the hard drive is fixed, they stop answering. They are stringing me along; it has been two years now. I have come to terms with the fact that the hard drive will never be fixed, but I at least want a refund which I have not been given. This company needs to be brought to justice because it is robbing people and never being legally prosecuted for it. There are hundreds of reviews online about what they are doing to people, yet there has not been anything done by the authorities.

After numerous attempts to work it out privately. He has ignored all attempts of contact and denying that he owes me said money. I worked my [censored] off for him to only learn he is a fraud and in debt with the CRA and other agencies for loans.
