Indian police said on Thursday that they arrested about dozens of people who questioned people all over the world who had issued fake pop-up messages warning that their computer was infected and offered to offer a solution to the problem.
Police Officer Ajeey Pal Sharma said they were arrested on Tuesday and Wednesday by Microsoft and other companies and used logos.
The detentions were made after the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Interpol were brought in, said Sharm. In the case Microsoft was the applicant.
According to him, the detainees have been conducting a call center for the Halyan and MIA in the Indian capital and neighboring areas for months.
Pop-up messages prompted victims in the United States, UK, Australia and other countries to dial phone numbers on phone numbers, he said. They were then destroyed by money, presumably to solve the problem.
The detainees were mainly in the early 20s and early 30s who were trying to leave the office of service actors. The police removed hard drives, servers, laptops, mobile phones and computers from them, said Sharm.
In 2016, police arrested 70 people in Mumbai as if thousands of Americans were deceived. They call victims in round centers and tell them that they do not pay taxes and have to pay cash cards to pay their debts or jails.
