iYogi’s Computer Support Services
March 2015: A federal judge refused to dismiss a false advertising class-action lawsuit against iYogi, Inc. The complaint, which was originally filed in 2013, alleges, among other things, that the company deceptively offers “Free PC Diagnostics” and a phone consultation with a “Tech Expert” who will identify problems with computers and recommend solutions when, in reality, there is no “credible diagnostic testing” done on the computers and “virtually every potential customer” receives the same warning. (Burton et al v. iYogi, Inc., Case No. 13-cv-6926, S. D. NY.)
