I not happy. I needed help and all you've done is taken my money and completely attacked me with more problems. Thankyou
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Joyce,

I have not attached you.... I asked you for the last 4 digits of your phone to reset the password.

You replied you wanted me to connect to your computer so I gave you the instructions to do so.

I am not clear what the issue is and why you cannot at least do one or the other of what I am requesting from you.
