Woman Sues Makers of Facebook Apps

A 41-year-old Santa Cruz woman identified as Rebecca Swift has filed a class-action lawsuit against one of the popular application makers in the social networking site Facebook.

In her lawsuit, Swift claimed that Zynga charged around $200 as the makers of the application “YoVille” lured her into signing up in an alleged false advertisement.

She believes that many others were lured in the same trap presented by Zynga.

A judge is yet to determine whether Swift’s claims of Zynga defrauding its users have credit. But those who have encountered the same alleged fraudulent act must seek the help of an expert lawyer who can determine whether they have grounds to file a complaint.
