    They finally caught 1 of the "Microsoft Scam" people

    Took long enough, there are many more out there but at least 1 has been caught so far:

    Microsoft scam man is sentenced in 'landmark' case
    Trading Standards hailed the case as being the first victory of its kind.

    A man who ran a Microsoft computer scam tricking people into paying for free anti-virus software has received a suspended four-month jail sentence.

    Mohammed Khalid Jamil, 34, from Luton, hired people at an Indian call centre to falsely tell victims their computers had a serious problem.

    1 down... several hundred to go. A drop in the ocean I fear

    And 4 months suspended is hardly a deterrent for others

    I bet he made a lot more than what he was fined.
