As reported by swedishwire.com, three men - from the US and Sweden - responsible for spreading infamous scareware such as "Errorsafe" and "Drivecleaner" may be facing hard penalties for their fraudulent activities. They operated via a Ukraine-based company called "Innovative Marketing" located in Kiev. The fraud scheme of the perpetrators was based on tricking gullible users into believing that their computers were heavily infected.
