Case Summary:

Next-Gen, Inc. and related companies are being hit with a judgment for nearly $115 million, which will be suspended when the companies turn over $30 million in cash and assets. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the State of Missouri sued the companies for promoting fake sweepstakes and “games of skill” that promised cash prizes, but required participants to pay money to get their supposed prizes. The scam appears to have targeted seniors, the FTC claims, and Next-Gen will be permanently banned from the prize promotion business as part of the settlement.
