Who is ProFlowers?, Easy Saver Info

It didn’t take long for a class action lawsuit to be filed on this , the following is from MSNBC:
( *** link no long works… see below)
If contact info becomes available for the law firm that has filed this becomes available I’ll post it on our blog.

While researching the ProFlowers class action lawsuit I did some research about what other companies the parent companies own. One of the online reports said a customer got signed up for Easy Saver while placing a ticketmaster order , and ticketmaster is partially owned by the same company. I have no information that all companies listed below are involved with Easy Saver, but to be safe you chould check your credit card statements for unknown charges.

UPDATE: I’ve noticed that a lot of the online information on this subject has been disappearing from the web, as an example the MSNBC video above is gone, as is the Wikipedia entries. I found find these entries: http://www.courthousenews.com/2009/09/28/Easy_Saver_My_Foot_Class_Says.htm and http://www.nbcsandiego.com/around-town/shopping/Complaints-Filed-About-ProFlowers.html

Below is a list of companies that the parent companies have ownership in.

They have been sorted by percentage of ownership.
The data came from Liberty Media’s own web site.

As you can see: they own many companies that you may already be doing business with, be safe and check your credit card/bank statements.
