    Why not just charge anyone involved in loyality/reward/rebate/incentive marketing and be done with it. If you were an unemployable greedy unethical weasel you still could find work conning consumers with these deceptive programs. Within the Adwhore community these types vary from street walkers to the high priced call gals having lost their jobs as telemarketers to outsourcers.

    "Affiliate network using deceptive ads to enroll consumers into monthly subscription plans."

    I'm assuming that's referring to Continuity Programs aka S"ign up for your Free Trial of Hoodia" and oh by the way it's $200 a month if you don't cancel.

    The parent companies were listed. The corresponding CPA Networks would be Primary Ads, COPEAC, CPAEmpire and RocketProfit. Just in case anyone isn't sure about the corporate chains.

    This has been brewing for a while now. I wonder if the FL AG is finished yet or if some other companies may yet be named.
