FTC Shuts Down Two Tech Support Firm PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 November 2014
21st century scams are rampant these days, and when you couple that with technology, that would make it a high-tech scam. Apparently, the Federal Trade Commission has recently shut down two massive Florida-based telemarketing operations, in which according to the report, the companies scammed victims who were mainly senior citizens into buying useless softwares.

The report also stated that the companies made a whopping $120 million from the scam, and they have been in operation since 2012. Generally, the tech support firms would sell victims fake antivirus software, and also fake tech support. One of the firms sold a software called PC Cleaner, while the other operated under several names, namely, Boost Software Inc., OMG Tech Help and, hilariously enough, OMG Total Protection.
