Scamware victims finally re-imbursed

Unread postby Sludge3000 » December 14th, 2011, 12:39 am

After hiding away for the last couple of month I have returned with some good news.

More than 300,000 consumers, taken in by a scam that warned them they needed to purchase dodgy software to get rid of non-existent security threats, are in line to get a slice of $8 million forfeited by Innovative Marketing.

The firm agreed surrender the ill-gotten gains to settle FTC (Federal Trade Commission) charges that they used deceptive ads to trick marks into buying scareware packages such as Winfixer, Drive Cleaner, and XP Antivirus.

As we are all aware, in this industry, where one falls another rises but it's nice to see the victims actually seeing some of their loses returned.
