Inevitable Class Action Suit Goes After Facebook Scammers


Over five months after we first started covering some of the aggressive advertisements on Facebook, a class action suit is being filed on behalf of the users who were victims of reverse mobile billing scams. This was an inevitable suit although this really appears to simply be a law firm looking to profit from all of the scams. Named in the class action suit are the following companies, including some companies that have sponsored this blog:

  • Zynga
  • RockYou
  • Offerpal Media
  • Super Rewards
  • Tatto Media
  • Double Ding
  • Gambit
  • SendMe Mobile
  • Video Professor
  • Facebook
  • MySpace

It’s clear that the law firm behind this has only begun its investigation into the practices of the listed companies as they are missing a number of organizations who were so aggressive that they participated in fraudulent activity.
