Plaintiffs have sufficiently demonstrated that the Defendants Boost Software, Inc., Vast Tech Support, LLC, OMG Tech Help, LLC, Success Capital, LLC, Jon Paul Holdings, LLC, Amit Mehta, Elliot Loewenstern, Jon-Paul Vasta, and Mark Donohue have engaged in and are likely to engage in acts or practices that violate Section 5(a) of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. § 45(a), the FTC’s Trade Regulation Rule entitled “Telemarketing Sales Rule” (“TSR”), 16 C.F.R. Part 310, and Section 501.204 of FDUTPA, and that the FTC and the State of Florida are therefore likely to prevail on the merits of this action;
Plaintiffs have sufficiently demonstrated that immediate and irreparable harm will result from the Defendants’ ongoing violations of Section 5 of the FTC Act, the TSR and Section 501.204 of FDUTPA unless Defendants are restrained and enjoined by Order of this Court;
Plaintiffs have sufficiently demonstrated that immediate and irreparable damage to this Court’s ability to grant effective final relief for consumers, including monetary restitution, rescission, disgorgement or refunds, will occur from the sale, transfer, or other disposition or concealment by Defendants of their Assets or records if Defendants are provided with advance notice of this Order, and that therefore in accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b), the interests of justice require that this Order be granted without prior notice to Defendants. Thus, there is good cause for relieving the FTC and the State of Florida of the duty to provide Defendants with prior notice of the FTC and the State of Florida’s application;

OMG Tech Help Computer Service & Repair Internet
I am an bench technician and I work on all different types of computer issues, including virus removal. After these guys were done, there were viruses. Whether or not the viruses were there before or after the remote session from this company does not matter. This compay will scam you for no service and overcharge you for whatever service they pretend to perform. Do not give them access, credit card numbers, or one minute of your time.
If you came in contact with this company, immediately take your computer into a local computer repair company and ensure the technicians are A+ Certified through CompTIA.
User was trying to install a media player, stopped at 50%, pop up told user that he had problems. Click here for tech support, that is where user found the number. Scammer remoted into the computer, said he was in Bocucatan Florida, said he was doing a tune up. Scammer found viruses and asked user for permission to charge $159.95 for a virus removal. User denied permission and shut pc down. The mini-tune up was $39.99 originally, the scammer charged ~$55.
Scammer was from this company.
Other info: I ran roguekiller, tdsskiller, malwarebytes, superantispyware, and spybot in safe mode. I also checked the proxy info and reset all of it to default.
