Verizon Security VISS

Message 1 of 3

I paid for the VISS coverage for both lap tops that we have. I paid for this service for 1 1/2 yrs at $10.00 per month. I caught a virus on one of the lap tops that was covered under your plan. The VISS was installed on both laptops so we assumed that we were secure.  Wrong!!! One lap top has a virus that makes it impossible to use. I spent 6 hours, three different times over a 3 day period speaking with Mc Afee reps (very difficult with the severe language barrier) to help me with the problem. After the 3rd attemp to correct the Mc Afee rep said they could not fix the problem and I should take the lap top to HP (maker of the laptop) to get it fixed by the Geek squad at Best Buy. I will have to pay for the service out of pocket because Mc Afee cannot fix it. I called the Geek Squad and they wanted $200.00 to fix it. I should get a refund from Verizon for their lack of service. I complained to a Verizon rep and he said "sorry" but offered no options or a refund. I am considering paying the fine to get out of this contract and find better service.  I pay slightly over $300.00 a month to Verizon. I am not happy that you can bill for a service that you never provided.
