Class Action filed over Facebook Credits Sold to Minors


San Francisco, CA: An Arizona woman has filed a class action lawsuit against Facebook, alleging her teenage son purchased virtual goods from Facebook without her knowledge or consent. Glynnis Bohannon is seeking refunds from Facebook, on behalf of her son and thousands of "minor children"who misrepresented their right to acquire the company' online currency, Facebook Credits.

The class action lawsuit, filed in San Jose, is seeking millions for minors and their parents and guardians under California' consumer protection laws.

Facebook Credits are widely used in many games and apps and allow users to purchase any number of virtual goods, such as virtual sheep, or to play poker on sites like Zynga. The currency is reportedly a large source of revenue for Facebook, which takes a 30 percent cut of all transactions.
