Now, I understand humans have to support their family by whatever means, since costs go up, checks go down, jobs go away.... but not by lying, stealing, killing, or squishing Twinkies.
That's good the way it happened for you ! Mine actually happened about 2 years ago .... I had bought the program from the TV called PC Matic and loved it for about one month . Then I decided I wanted my money back and sent them a message and never heard anything for some time so I googled for a phone number for them . Never could find anything then after many searches ....There It Was ....a number for them ! I called and they wanted in my PC and I allowed it and they showed me some stuff and then started talking about money . I said I had just bought the program and was not paying nothing ! Then I said , " Who Is This " ? The man said Microsoft ....I hung up the phone and forced off the PC ....I knew I had been had !! Sorry so long but this is the story !
