Not sure if this applies to your situation, but you can control proftpd
access like this:

# Limit who can login
<Limit LOGIN>
	Order allow,deny
	AllowGroup staff
	Deny from All

Then add the users who are allowed ftp access to the staff group. Or just 
leave out the AllowGroup line to deny everyone.
