Just when you begin to give up on business regulation, the Federal Trade Commission pulls off a blinder like this.
It seems that this firm has been trying to scare people into shelling out $30 for a spyware detector that doesn't work. Most techies know that there are two perfectly good free anti-spyware programs out there: Spybot and Ad-Aware.
The real people being hurt by this sort of scam are the techno-newbies: people who've bought a computer because they think they should, and have little idea of how to use it. Such people are ripe for the fleecing and unsurprisingly there's a class of people out there who'll do it.
So keep an eye out for the scamsters. Maybe by moving fast we can shut these people down.
