We were having issues with our new printer set-up. A chat was started and we granted remote access to "Kevin". After several minutes Kevin called and said the problem was with the computer, not the printer and he would go ahead and fix the problem for $199. This seems like an absolutely ridiculous "solution" from tech support on a NEW printer. Does this sound like a typical HP tech support solution? We are now concerned about the remote access that we granted.
Sadly, this sounds like a scammer. Where did you find the contact information that led you to "Kevin"? Unfortunately, a search for "HP Support" will lead to several non-HP sites on the first page of results.
Be alert for scammers posting fake support phone numbers and/or email addresses on the community. If you think you have received a fake HP Support message, please report it to us by clicking on "Flag Post".
