CLEVELAND (Legal Newsline) — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced Jan. 29 that Repair All PC and several related companies and individuals have been banned from the tech support business as part of settlements with the FTC and the State of Ohio.

According to DeWine and the FTC, the defendants deceived consumers by telling them their computers were infected with malware. Once the consumers were deceived, the defendants would allegedly charge them hundreds of dollars for repairs that were entirely unnecessary.

“This scheme affected people in Ohio and across the country, and we were pleased to work with the Federal Trade Commission to shut it down,” DeWine said in a statement. “Scams regularly cross state and national borders, so this kind of collaboration is an important part of protecting consumers.”

The defendants in the cases were Repair All PC LLC; Pro PC Repair LLC; I Fix PC LLC; WebTech World LLC; Online Assist LLC; Datadeck LLC; I Fix PC (also doing business as Techers 247, I Fix PC, and I Fix PC 247); Jessica Marie Serrano; Dishant Khanna; Mohit Malik; Romil Bhatia; Lalit Chadha; and Roopkala Chadha.
