This company has the worst customer service and online website I have ever dealt with. When you try updating things it won't allow you to do it. I spoke with CSR yesterday and she said I apologize the site has been having problems for over 2 weeks, Well what kind of IT Comany are they using that can't fix a computer glitch in less than 2 weeks. What a disgrace. In the meantime the CEO Bruce Broussard is makning over 1.5 million dollars annually. Obviously he is more important and taking care of more than his customers. DIGRACEFUL!!!!

This company is the biggest ripoff ever. They don't cover anything and just take your money until you don't pay anymore and give up. They have idiots on the resolution lines and try to be sympathetic but just end up being pathetic.
