Leave a comment

The FTC announced today that it has entered into a settlement agreement with the fourth of 5 companies charged in May 2006 with pretexting. The FTC’s complaint charged the companies with falsely obtaining subscribers’ telephone records (or pretexting) and selling them without subscribers’ knowledge or consent. The companies are barred from marketing or selling phone records and must disgorge ill-gotten gains.
