LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Online dating and affair website Ashley Madison will pay more than a million dollars for deceptive practices.
The site was hacked last year - exposing millions of Americans. It just reached a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, agreeing to pay $1.7 million dollars.
An investigation found the website had lax data security, and that it created fake female profiles to attract male customers.
Investigators say the website misled customers with a "full delete" option, but actually kept the information for up to a year.
