Scam.

Did they ask you to open event viewer & point out all the ‘errors’ as a malware attack & that’s why your speed is slow?
This is what these people usually do, then they ask for PC access or ask you to download their ‘repair’ tool which usually installs malware or spyware.

Hi all, 

Sorry I removed the URL form the original post (it has since been re-added) 

Thank you for bringing this fake website to our attention I have since forwarded the information to our internet security team so the website can be taken down ASAP.

Regards,

Dean C

Well why would a Billion pound company use weebly for their URL? Even when VM did proper phone remote rech support they used a VM URL. What if that URL has Malicious code in the website? It should be removed IMHO

 

Edit - The VM one was http://www.myvmfixmac.com/ when gadget Rescue was a thing.
