A man who operated a couple of Hayward, Calif.-based businesses must pay $136,000 in connection with a tech-support scam out of India, and can never offer tech support again. The Federal Trade Commission announced a settlement with Parmjit Singh Brar, who it accused of working with telemarketers to trick elderly Americans into buying fake tech-support services.
