Company: Innovative Marketing
Date captured: On the run
Innovative Marketing made over $100 million by selling “scareware” antivirus software, which was promoted by its felonious then-CEO, Sam Jain. Those products included WinFixer, Antivirus 2008, and VirusRemover 2008. Any of them sound familiar? According to a FBI transcript, Jain was arraigned for “conspiracy to commit computer fraud,” leading to a federal warrant being issued for his arrest. Funny thing is Jain was already considered a fugitive for failing to show up for a court appearance in California and not paying a $250,000 bond. The Feds were able to seize $15 million from Jain’s Swiss bank account. However, he remains a U.S. fugitive.
