does my £13 i have paid come off the repair bill please
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
are u there plse
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

No, this is a separate company.... we are a technical support center and the payment was for this...

If we did this for free, then there would be no service here and you would never have been helped Elizabeth... It is my livelihood and of course I could never support myself by doing this for free.

I am only paid when you provide a positive rating and from this response, I gather I will not be getting one.... which is a shame as I provided you a service.
