Submission + - Facebook Spammers Make $20M, Get $100K Fine (

jfruh writes: "Adscend Media, which has been making up to $20M a year from so-called "likejacking" spam on Facebook, has reached agreement with the Attorney General of Washington to stop those activities and pay $100,000 in court costs. Among other nefarious techniques, Adscend would overlay Facebook "like" buttons with provocative photos to spread links to ads from which Adscend would earn referral fees. Adscend also settled out of court with Facebook for an undisclosed amount."
