Zango?s continued bad practices in light of FTC?s proposed settlement terms Posted by Suzi Turner @ 9:11 pm

November 19, 2006

Just over two weeks ago, the FTC announced a proposed settlement with Zango for the complaint filed earlier this year. Under terms of the settlement, Zango is required to give up $3 million in ill-gotten gains and to stop a number of bad practices that have been documented back to 2002. As usual Zango claims innocence, and on November 3 stated on their blog:

Zango has met or exceeded the key notice and consent standards detailed in the FTC consent order since at least January 1, 2006.
