Ohio AG Suing Scammy Gift Card Site

The Ohio Attorney General is suing GiftAssistant.com for using unfair and deceptive methods to take at least $42,000 from at least 250 people. At least one of those people the company bilked was a Consumerist reader, as we reported previously.

The AG seeks the money returned, and the company officers fined $25,000 for each violation.

We have little to add here except maybe, “word up.” — BEN POPKEN
