Have you been a victim of scareware?
If so, there's a high probability that a refund is waiting for you, just around the corner.
The US Federal Trade Commission announced that it plans to issue refunds to 320,000 known scareware victims, following a settlement with Innovative Marketing -- a producer and distributor of fake security software known as Winfixer, Drive Cleaner, and XP Antivirus. -- for $8,272,962.
With $100 million in revenues, Innovative Marketing's case clearly indicates just how profitable the scareware business is.
