Funny you should ask.
I wrote to TRUSTe.
I wrote to them again, since they ignored my first complaint.
I got a whole load of “we are analysing…” replies.
On July 18th I got an email including… ”The site you reported to TRUSTe and has responded to your complaint regarding additional changes they will be implementing”
We didn’t, of course, need any additional changes, just for them to do what they said they were already doing.

2 minutes ago I unblocked scorecardresearch and, guess what – pages on this site are still hitting their servers, completely in violation of their, and TRUSTe’s, policies.

scorecardresearch themselves, of course, did not deign to answer any of my emails. They still proudly display their “TRUSTe certified privacy” badge on their web site.

Back to your question … Did anything ever get resolved on this?
TRUSTe said it did – they have closed the “problem” on their system.

Back to your question … Did anything ever get resolved on this?
Nope. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
Four months gone – no change.

What can be done?
Well, it appears, nothing – as seems to me to be somewhat common in this day and age, nobody gives a damn.
People can say whatever they like on their web sites, set up “certified whatever they like” programmes – it all looks very good and efficient and trustworthy – and it all means about as much as the paper it’s not printed on.
