On Point Global Lawsuit Explained
In 2019, the FTC sued a company called On Point Global for operating over 200 bogus government websites that claimed to provide quick and easy government services, such as checking eligibility for government assistance programs and renewing a driver’s license.
However, the websites didn’t provide any of the services advertised, but they still collected lots of personal data, including people’s age, gender, income, and credit or debit card number. Instead of using this data for the services claimed, On Point Global sold it to other companies.
The FTC won the lawsuit, and the court has ordered On Point Global to pay up to $17 million to consumers who were harmed.
