This is Brian Cotter
Michael Brian Cotter from Glendale, California, was the CEO and owner of the infamous tech support scam call center Saburi Tech Live Connect (TLC for short) which also operated under the names Premium Techie Support (PTS) and MySupportPeople.
In late 2020, the US Department of Justice entered a permanent injunction against Brian Cotter and all his companies and subsidiaries and seized all his internet domains due to fraud allegations. The complaint featured screenshots of tech support scam popups used by his company to mislead customers into purchasing services they never needed.
After the seized domains have been released to be sold again, I bought some of them. If you see this, you tried to access a domain that was formerly connected to Saburi TLC and its different scam identities.
