Beware of Make Tech Easier Scam That Is Not from Us

scam-featured

It has been brought to our attention that there are people (scammers?) using the “Make Tech Easier” name to call people and ask for remote access to their computers in order to “clean up” their computers. We have also received news that there is another company also known as “Make Tech Easier” that is providing computer support services, and apparently they have not been doing a great job as we received a lot of complaints regarding their work.

Whatever it is, I have to point out that this current Make Tech Easier site (with url https://www.maketecheasier.com) has no affiliation with any of these companies or scams, nor do we call people up to ask for remote access to their computers. If you have received such a call or services from said companies, they were not initiated by us.

This MakeTechEasier site that you are reading now is under Uqnic Network Pte Ltd, and its sole purpose is to provide technology tips and tricks on the site itself. It is never our second business to provide offline computer support or randomly call people without their permission.

Firstly, we don’t collect telephone information from our readers, and all the email addresses collected are solely for the purpose of logging into the site, leaving a comment, and optionally a subscription to our newsletter.

Secondly, according to our Privacy Policy, “Any personal information you provide to us including and similar to your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address will not be released, sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of MakeTechEasier.com.

So, if you have received any calls from people claiming to be from Make Tech Easier, rest assured that they are not us or from us. And one more thing, never ever grant remote access permission to anyone that you don’t know.

Now, you can go on to enjoy the rest of our articles.

  1. I absolutely love wasting these people’s time. I will lead them on for hours with them trying to get me to install the software. However I’m on Linux with out wine, and only say this after wasting about 3 or more hours of their time, other times I claim I’m on Windows 95, or something else similar. Other times I claim I can’t get to the download. As I do t have I telnet services.
    These people are that desperate for the install that they are all smiles and giggles until I mention Linux or something like that.

  2. I concur with Max, I get great entertainment using a foreign accent in my voice and acting like I am hard of hearing. It is the best fun you can have tormenting those who want access to my private information

    ****Thanks guys for the heads up*****

  3. “If you have received calls from people at Make Tech Easier, they are not from us, and beware of any scam to access your PC remotely.”

    “from people at Make Tech Easier, they are not from us” then why are they “people at Make Tech Easier”?

    Seems the following is more accurately and teck easier:

    “If you have received calls from people stating they are from Make Tech Easier, they are not from us, and beware of any scam to access your PC remotely.”

  4. Just gotta ask though, who would be foolish enough to give ANYONE access to their Personal PC at home?…that’s like opening your front door, leaving the safe in your house wide open, and leaving all the lights on so that they don’t have to bungle around in the dark!…I dunno…it seems to me that the more they try to make technology easier for the common man is the more the common man does the DUMBEST SH*T ever!!!!

  5. I was scammed by these people. Embarrassed to say I fell for it but got out of it in time. They were very insistent and half way through the process realized what I had done. Only wish there was some way I could get these people prosecuted. I have learned a valuable lesson and will NEVER do it again.
