The CBI has recovered assets worth Rs 190 crore during its searches against six companies booked for targeting Microsoft customers through a technical support scam.

CBI spokesperson RK Gaur said, “During the agency’s searches on September 17, the sleuths also seized gold worth Rs 55 lakh, cash totalling Rs 25 lakh and a plethora of digital evidence indicating alleged nefarious activities of the six accused companies based in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.” He said the agency was collaborating “with the US agencies and authorities of other friendly countries” against the fraudsters, who allegedly took remote control of computers of users by sending them a pop-up message of malware presence on their systems. — TNS
