What advice are you going to give them that they can realistically be expected to perform?
Without knowing what happened? Nothing. Tell me what happened first.

If you are unable to tell me what happened, well, let's start with getting your money back, so you're no longer a few hundred bucks in the hole - a vast improvement over your strategy of "lmao oh well" already! Call the authorities, call your bank, cancel the payment. Then, walk in to an Apple Store (yuck) and have your machine diagnosed for free. If all it needs is a wipe and reinstall, enjoy having that done as a courtesy service. It's an inconvenience, but at least now you're sorted.

Oh, so same advice as me.

I've already said ... sort the bank. That's the problem depending on how you paid. If it was as clean (and stupid) as using an itunes voucher ... well you may as well have given Rushy some bitcoin money for all the chances that you'll get that back. But you won't be paying out again.

Then, walk in to an Apple Store (yuck) and have your machine diagnosed for free. If all it needs is a wipe and reinstall, enjoy having that done as a courtesy service. It's an inconvenience, but at least now you're sorted.
If you have Applecare, you aren't asking strange companies on the internet to install your printers and fix security issues. So there is no 'free diagnosis'. Its going to be your first born child and a kidney to have a 'genius' look at it.

This unfortunately coincided with her credit cards being compromised as well so she is currently locked out of her banking. Plus side is that she couldn’t give access if she wanted to.

I have some better advice. This woman sounds like she needs some financial education. She's a walking calamity.

No, quite the opposite. I do appreciate your backtracking, though. You've done enough damage here and letting go would be the decent thing to do. I'm all for your "Oym a Nazi and also always right >o<" meme when you're not actually hurting people, but in this case you should probably just take a step back.

If you have Applecare
You don't need it in this case. Neither does your machine need to be under warranty.

Damn, that sucks. Good on you for trying to help her!

Thork I’ve already decided that Pete’s approach makes a ton more sense so you can stop trying to be right and continue plotting the demise of immigrants in the UK. Thanks though!

You're welcome. I'm not trying to fuck things up for you. I'm suggesting that sure ... if this woman can do all the things to clean a Mac without spending a fortune or that you will help her ... do it. But if she can't ... its already traumatic. There is no point in worrying her further when there is f'all she can do about it ... and for the reasons I outlined ... if you can't do anything to help, you can at least offer her some reassurance that she shouldn't worry herself sick over it. But sort the bank part out.  ;)

And lets keep threads about immigrants about immigrants and leave the rest of the forum clean. I see them everywhere I go as it is.  ;)

Is that before or after?  I'm guessing after....
But good on their bank for blocking the fraudulent payment.

I'd complain here, I'm on the discord if you want me to make a personal army request.



How much do you know about the company? These guys can usually put ransomware on an entire network of scammers.

Scammers, their just a growing yet outrageous community, if you really think about it you can get scammed by people just using an ad to tell of an idea, you buy it, they recieve and it doesn’t work as expected.
