Google just filed a lawsuit against a crooked company that used robocalls to small businesses. The firm, Local Lighthouse Corp, allegedly masqueraded as a search engine optimization firm and claimed to be a Google subcontractor. It confused customers, and then charged them $100 per month or more for nothing, according to reports about the filing.
The case doesn’t only concern fraud, but also illegal use of robocalls through violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
