This is outrageous. If you purchased tech support in the past few years, you may be a victim of a scam that cost hundreds of thousands of people about $120 million.

Fortunately, the Federal Trade Commission is helping you to recover your funds. Unfortunately, you'll only get $0.10 for every $1 that was stolen from you. The scammers will only return $10 million!

That's because companies like Advanced Tech Support, also known as Inbound Call Experts, and similar companies, don't have enough money left to give it back to you. Your loss, right?

The scammers stole money from people by lying and pressuring them to purchase bogus tech support products and services. According to FTC.gov, "The defendants used high-pressure sales pitches to market tech support products and services by falsely claiming that people’s computers were infected with viruses and malware."

Note: Keep reading to find out specific details about how to claim your refund. But, read all this information carefully! Now, scammers are pretending to be government officials calling to help you get your money back.
