In the Matter of Red Ventures Holdco, LP and Bankrate, Inc., File No. 1710196
As a senior placement professional, I was pleased to learn the merger between A Place For Mom and Caring.com has been denied. This was definitely required as online referral agencies have exhibited overly aggressive and misleading representation in the assisted living marketplace. Many consumers have inadvertently given consent to be represented by online referral companies without even realizing it. I urge the FTC to continue it's investigation in to the online referral agencies' practices as there is more protection the consumers should be given.
