Default Facebook Ad Trolls Charged $100K

I was just about to cheer this $100k fine...until I saw the part where it says the company makes $1.2M a month off these scam ads. In a Washington court, the firm was charged $100,000 in attorneys fees and ordered to stop plastering Facebook with headlines "designed to trick Facebook users into allowing spam to be sent to all of their Facebook friends." Adscend was accused of violating the CAN-SPAM Act, and while it originally contemplated fighting the charges, chose to settle instead.
