PC Health boost Shut Down by FTC

The Federal Trade Commission has closed 2 technical support companies including PC HealthBoost after the companies “scammed” computer users from millions of dollars. The companies provided software to users which required a fee to activate. PC Cleaner was distributed for the sole purpose of scaring users into purchasing software after they became notified to system issues which may or may not have existed.

Boost Software was selling similar software with the addition of telemarketing operations that were also fake. Both companies websites have been closed in addition to a company help operate the call center, OMG Tech Help. PC Healthboost claimed to be able to increase the speed of your computer by 216%. Boost Software CEO Amit Mehta was named as the mastermind by the FTC.

The FTC claims that both companies sell useless software that uses fear and a lack of technical knowledge to make money on software sales.
