FTC Stops Man from Lying to Consumers About Tech Support

The Federal Trade Commission announced that it has successfully obtained a preliminary injunction that forbids a Florida man from telling unsuspecting consumers that the FTC hired him to conduct tech support. Daniel Croft made up a bogus FTC press release in hopes of convincing people that another company had been shut down by the agency for installing malicious software on PCs, and that his own nonsense companies — PC Guru Tech Support and Elite Tech Support — had been hired to help fix the situation.
