How to Avoid Being Ripped Off

How do you know who you can trust? Let's face it, when it comes to computers, most people don't know if they're getting a fair shake from their repair people, or if they're being ripped off. Here are some things to look for in locating a trustworthy service provider:

  1. Free diagnosis. Does the service provider offer a free diagnostic service?
  2. Fast turnaround. Does the service provider keep the computer for days or weeks regardless of the difficulty of the problem?
  3. Accurate analysis. Does the service provider accurately identify the problem to be solved?
Check out the video below to see a news "sting" report revealing how the typical "big box" stores strike out on each of these tests. First, they charge an up-front diagnostic fee. Second, they take days just for the initial analysis, and need to "send the computer out" for weeks to address even a simple problem. Third, the results of their diagnosis are completely wrong, revealing shocking incompetence and / or fraud.
