This action arises out of a Department of Justice investigation into a conspiracy to fix prices for customized promotion products. From at least June 2014 to at least June 2016, with anticompetitive effects continuing to the present, Defendants used text messages; online messaging platforms such as Facebook, Skype and WhatsApp; and in-person meetings to communicate with coconspirators and reach agreements to fix and maintain prices for certain customized promotional products, specifically customized silicone wristbands, customized lanyards, and customized pin buttons.
Defendants include: Zaappaaz, Inc. d/b/a WB Promotions, Inc., Wrist-band.com and Customlanyard.net; Custom Wristbands Inc. d/b/a Kulayful Silicone Bracelets, Kulayful.com, Speedywristbands.com, Promotionalbands.com, wristbandcreation.com and 1inchbracelets.com; Netbrands Media Corp. d/b/a 24hourwristbands.com and imprint.com; Casad Company d/b/a Totally Promotional; Brandeco, LLC d/b/a brandnex.com and several individuals as well.
Several of the defendants have pled guilty. If you have purchased any customized products from any of the above defendants after June 2014 you may have been damaged by paying more than you would have without the defendants’ illegal conspiratorial conduct.
