Cohen & Malad, LLP is investigating consumer claims after a class action lawsuit was filed against FanDuel and DraftKings alleging the daily fantasy sports websites used fraudulent tactics and false advertising to entice consumers to enter its contests. FanDuel & DraftKings solicited their contests as skill-driven competitions suggesting that players with stronger player selection strategies could win more money over other players. These fantasy sports websites failed to disclose that employees of these sites were not barred from competing on other daily fantasy sports websites. The lawsuit alleges FanDuel and DraftKings employees had an unfair advantage over other players due to the accessibility of contest player data base statistics. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for monies paid to a DraftKings or FanDuel account for contest play.
