    Feds Shut Down Phony Apple, Microsoft, Google Tech Support Scammers

    I doubt that this got them all but at least it finally shows some effort to slow them down.

    While consumers are much more tech-savvy today than we were during the days of Windows 3.1 and baud modems, there are still a lot of people whose tech-insecurity makes them potential prey for bogus tech support businesses that make money by convincing victims their computers are infected with viruses.
    Today, the Federal Trade Commission along with the attorneys general for Pennsylvania and Connecticut announced it had shut down several tech support scammers that bilked consumers for more than $17 million.
