Chris Rizo reports:

The social network Tagged has agreed to pay San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris’s office $650,000 to settle claims that it sent millions of deceptive e-mail messages to consumers to build its membership.

Harris, the Democratic frontrunner for California attorney general, announced the settlement with the owners of Tagged.com on Monday.

The San Francisco-based company was accused of sending up to 60 million e-mail messages from April to June 2009 to prospective members. The solicitations claimed that a friend had sent a photograph or private message through the Tagged system.


Tagged Inc. last year paid $500,000 to settle a similar case brought by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. The company also agreed to pay Texas $250,000 to settle a case brought by Attorney General Greg Abbott.
