Ohio and FTC versus tech support scammers

Kevin Townsend, for Security Week, reports on action against tech support scammers in the US and UK.

Tech Support Scammers Fined in US, Jailed in UK

Kevin says:

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced Monday that operators of a nationwide computer repair scam have been banned from the tech support business as part of settlements with the FTC and Ohio.

Includes some commentary from me.
