ATTLEBORO, Mass. — Courtesy Auto Group has reached a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission for violating the FTC Act’s prohibition of deceptive advertising on vehicle lease offers, the Sun Chronicle reports.

The group is barred from stating the amount of any payment — or that any or no payment is required at the start of a lease — without disclosing the terms required under the Consumer Leasing Act.
