“Did a little research on this company”

Did a little research on this company . . . . It kind of raises a flag when a company has so many "5 star we love it reviews from accounts that only do one review." Usually they are paid/or fake shill accounts trying to hype their ratings . . . DON'T buy any of the stack of "guruaid. anything" spammed here lately. Currently they are using all these domains: guruaid.com guruaid.co.uk guruaid.ca guruaid.us guruaid.net More info below from several other sources. ---------- complaintslist.com http://www.complaintslist.com/computer-repair/guruaid/ Average rating: 1.09 out of 5? Average reported loss: $1,004.54? Number of complaints: 53 Complaints of high pressure sales tactics ---------- http://www.scambook.com/report/view/246266/GuruAid-Complaint-246266-for-$169.99 ---------- Among other warning signs to be careful: Web Of Trust: - Ratings are disabled, WOT has detected unusual behavior on the scorecard and new ratings has been disabled.
