N.Y. AG Sues Tagged Social Network Over 'Fraudulent' Emails

New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has sued San Francisco-based social network Tagged, alleging the company violated users' privacy and used deceptive marketing practices to inflate site traffic.

The lawsuit alleges that Tagged sent over 60 million emails to Web users, stating that their friends had posted photos online.

When a user went to view the photos -- which did not exist -- they had to join the site. At this point, the company "would then illegally gain access to their personal email contacts to send more fraudulent invitations." more
