Online Tech Virus Scam

Have you been scammed by an Online Tech company claiming you have a Virus?

iYogi, one of the largest online tech support companies which services over 3 million customers is being sued by the State of Washington, claiming that iYogi scams its customers into purchasing computer services and software they do not need.

Bob Ferguson the Attorney General for the State of Washington is the person who filed the lawsuit. The company is based in India, but has recently opened its first US support center in Lewiston, Maine. The suit has also named its president Vishal Dhar of New York.

The claim states iYogi support techs, will inform the customer that they are representatives of major hardware and software companies such as HP, Microsoft, and Apple. Once they get the customers buy in, they then take control of the computer via a remote control application. The tech then sends a flashing box on the users screen telling them they have a virus, and need to spend money in order for the tech to remove it.

They have also began to use the FREE windows 10 upgrade into there scam, by informing customers that they must upgrade from Windows 7 to 10, and charge the customers $80 -$199, even though this upgrade is free of charge.

This scam is believed to have defrauded over 3 million people and more than a billion a year!
