Way back in January 2013, we exposed the tech support scams which were established in the name of Geeks Planet Tech Support, and so more. However, we were not in the impression that the bug would make its way to Geeks Planet soon. But unfortunately, it happened. However, thanks to the smart Geeks Planet customers – who not only answered the perpetrators in their own coins but also traversed the extra mile to inform us – so that we can keep our practices sharp and safeguard the interest of our customers in future.

If you too happened to receive any call or email from a company or individual pretending itself as Geeks Planet or Geeks Planet agent, it amounts to the tech support scams, as we never practice outbound calling to offer any tech support plans to consumers. We use it only to survey on the existing customers about their level of satisfaction with respect to our services.

Hence, as a safety practice, discard such communication attempts, don’t share any personal information with strangers. And take initiative to protect your peers by dropping a mail at Or call us on the toll-free number +1-713-609-1041.
