I was trying to reinstall Norton Security through the Norton website and when it wouldn't work within moments had a guy on the phone explaining he could help. I proceeded to let him help me and he checked why it wouldn't work and found a whole heap of malicious software (apparently). Told me he could fix and would I be interested in signing up for 3 yrs, 5 yrs or lifetime support and proceeded to tell me the $$. When I said not interested in paying anything now he said ok thank you and good luck. Lucky was able to read these comments before going any further. Really Helpful ! Had a lot of issues with my computer and the guy fixed it for me. My computer is working better and with more security.
I dont understand why they have been given negative reviews when they have helped me on both my computers.
Caller: 1800 791 820
Pretending to be from Norton support centre. He fooled me until he demanded my bank details to buy other product in order to install the norton antivirus.

Scam don't go there! Tried to install Norton but got an error message featuring this 1800 number. Minutes later my mobile rings - the man on the line had a very hard to understand Indian accent and claimed to be from Norton. He instructed me to download software so he could access my pc. I didn't like the sound of it but I did anyway. He then told me my pc was full of errors and needed upgrading to Windows 8 or 10 for $$$. I told him it sounds like a scam & disconnected. He called from 0480 034 990. I then called the 1800 791 820 just to confirm if I had received a call from Norton & be agreed. I still wasn't satisfied so I took my Norton back to Officeworks & was able to get a refund. Hopefully my pc hasn't been infected ! Caller: Austin, thenMark
Looking at the above messages I suspect that there is a signal getting through to the people at this number to alert them that a person is downloading.
They called me when I was downloading an Office programme, asked if I needed help and claimed to be from the Microsoft Help team. I mistakenly assumed they were genuine and got stung for a programme called NST that I can't find anywhere on my computer.
Caller: Called During Office Install
Classic failure with Error code OF0740E saying problem with install and call them. Also smelled a rat and got local IT support.

Caller: Nortons help!!
tried to get help to install nortons, was told my computer had issues and i would need to upgrade. This was a scam. for some reason Nortons website can and is easily redirected to these scammers, make sure the nortons yellow tick is on the web site.
Caller: I called them
Called who i thought to be Norton for assistance in installing my anti-virus software. Gave them access to my computer and they said my Windows needed to be updated to Windows 10. Have since charged me for two transactions that are not relating to Norton. Unfortunately I have been a victim. Have contacted my bank to dispute these charges.
