If your business is looking for IT support, be sure to do your homework before handing over any money. Since March, the Better Business Bureau’s Scam Tracker has received more than 50 reports about a China-based firm that has tricked dozens of people out of anywhere from $3,000 to $30,000.
How the scam works
You are looking to hire a company to help develop software, set up a call center, build a website or perform other technology work. You see an ad online for an IT company with a strong track record and competitive prices.
