I just received an email which said 'your Premium Protection Plan of your computer has been renewed today. Since your account is set to auto-renew, we will automatically process the charges of $610.99 for the auto-renewal of your Premium Protection Plan " etc. phone number associated with cancellation is 888-996-0847. This email is using the Geek Squad Tec Support emblem. I called the store that I use and they said that this is a scam and to report it to you.
I did not talk to anyone at the 888 number. I DO have a protection plan that auto renews but it is $199.99. NOT $610.99.
