DO NOT expect a refund from IYOGI. They will scam you further. They claim to be refunding but when you follow their instructions they gain access to your bank accounts. They initiate an "overdraft" against your credit card that goes to your checking. Then they send you...

I, too, am a victim (kind of). I caught on to the fact that this was a scam during the phone conversation and shut down my computer.

Guy was yelling at me over the phone "Don't shut down your computer!" Before the computer shut down they placed a page in front of my start up page requiring their password. So, my computer has been hijacked. (I am on a friend's computer right now.) I immediately used my phone to change user names and passwords on all financial accounts. The guy called my number 10 times the next day.

Just to get back at him I answered the last call and told him I was getting a new computer (planned on it in a few months). And, that a new computer was less than the money he wanted.

Criminal Customer Service

As others reported, the company steals your money from your bank account through elaborate scamming and imbezzling. I'm elderly and contacted the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Office of the Inspector General. I also made a police report. I want my Money Back.

User's recommendation: Do Not Use This Company. They *** you bank account and steal your money.

This Company: Fraud, Stealing from your Bank Account, Cyber-bullying, Made a Police Report

Like others mentioned before, they said that I made an error on a refund form. They said they could not correct the form and accused me of a cyber crime. They hacked into my bank account while we were on the phone and stole over $3,000.00. Furthermore, they threatened to disable my computer if I did not use gift cards to pay them back. I'm elderly and was confused, but made a police report, contacted the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Office of the Inspector General (Fraud Hot Line). I want my money back. police report

User's recommendation: Do Not Use this Company...They Steal from your Bank Account.

They said I was automatically renewed for something I never used or said I wanted to pay for.

An email I got from iYogi was a bill, with many misspellings, which said I was automatically renewed for use of their product and the bill was for several hundred dollars. I never registered for this thing in the first place!!!!!! I wrote to them and told them I was notifying the authorities.

User's recommendation: If anything like this happens to you notify the BBB and the authorities.

Received message from them after years of no contact

Received a message on 9/18 from 304 820 **** Said that my account would be charged $299 auto debited from my purchase last year. Have not done business with this company in at least 6 years. Called that number and could not get through. How dare they have the gall to debit my account. Have not seen the transaction as of this date.

User's recommendation: Stay away from them.

SCAM ALERT!! SCAM ALERT!! SCAM ALERT!!

Some East Indian-sounding man called me and was fast talking about a refund of $399.00..."Turn on your computer, do you see this? Do you see that? Press this, what do you see? Tell me the number, etc, etc." I told him this sounds like a scam and he assured me it wasn't. I told him to give me his number to call back, he couldn't. I asked him to call me back in 5 minutes on a different phone number, he said okay, but he didn't. DO NOT FOLLOW THEIR INSTRUCTIONS TO LOG ON TO YOUR COMPUTER TO FIND SOME ID NUMBER!!!!! THEY ARE NOT GIVING OUT REFUNDS! IT'S A SCAM!!!

Iyogi refund

I just got off the phone with someone who wanted to refund my $399. I told him I no longer had that computer. He said that was ok. He asked me to type something and my computer asked permission to let someone have control. I got out of that screen yelled at him. I then hung up the phone and blocked that number. BEWARE!

Got the scam call too

My husband succumbed to the original iyogi scam of allowing them to control his computer, several years ago. Recently getting the phone calls others have described. It’s obviously a scam because, if you think about it, what other entity contacts you out if the blue and asks for control if your computer? What company calls you to refund money over the phone? Ridiculous! The calls are nothing short of criminal harassment.

Got a call on the i yogi scam.

Got several calls today, I start to follow this man’s instructions, he had an accent, and they started to take control of my computer. I abruptly shut it down by turning the power off with the power button. I told him I’m not feeling safe with this petty abruptly hung up when I told him I shut down. I haven’t had any activity on my account, since I changed my card anyway since I dealt with them years ago. I ran a quick scan and nothing came up. I’m going to do a deep scan and see if I can get anything on that. They owed me a few bucks, but it wasn’t 399.99. I haven’t used them in about five years anyway. Don’t fall for it and I’m posting it on my Facebook page.

Harassment

I have been getting calls from this company for many months, sometimes claiming I owe them money & sometimes claiming they owe me money for nonexistent computer services. I have asked them MANY MANY times to STOP calling, they continue to harass us. Every time we block the number they just call from a different number. I don't understand why the FCC cannot or will not stop these people, who appear to be from India, from this large scale harassment & worse STEALING from unwitting suckers. What is their function if it is not to stop this brazen criminality.

Iyogi seems to be scammers

I received a call today about a refund with IYOGI. They gained access to my computer, in what they say, an Avenue of getting my refund to me. I constantly questioned the rep. He acted like he was getting aggravated with me. They wanted me to access my bank account. They were persistent, but I was too, about not going to my account online while they had access to my computer. One rep hung up after I told him to mail it to me. They said they couldn't unless the amount exceeded & $1k. I asked why, and went on to say, it was their policy. I told him it didn't make sense. They called back and said the call got disconnected, but still was awaiting my bank account accessibility. I refused and hung up. I want a refund via mail, if it's legit, which I doubt!
