  •  But he's not doing anything (0+ / 0-)

    but looking at their data to get an idea of what needs to be done. Nothing's pulled apart.

    It's much more like seeing a doctor than a mechanic. The doctor runs some tests, examines you, tells you what he thinks the problem is, gives you options, and an idea of how expensive the options are. It's up to you to take it further - or get a second opinion first.

      My point is that the client already owes him maybe $1200, but nothing has been fixed.  If Mr $300/hr  leaves, he takes $1200 bucks and the clients machine is still broken.

      Religion gives men the strength to do what should not be done.

      •  You don't do IT security (0+ / 0-)

        It takes a LONG time to determine if their was a breach or any data loss, and to get a handle on what might have happened.  An actual IT company can and will charge you thousands for this, far more than I will.

        These sorts of problems often cost tens of thousands to fix, they can be horrid.  I can get you in and out of it for about 2 grand if it's not that major, or at least get most of the work done before you hire a professional firm.

        Heck, I can repair a broken hard drive and save the data from it within that first 3 hour charge, normally you'd pay thousands for that.

        Am I the type of person you'd call to fix a basic home computer, probably not.  You might have had a breach that has all your client and billing data on it, you're probably looking for someone like me or better and we are not cheap.
