On August 28, 2018, IntegrityMessageBoards, LLC, d/b/a Investor Village, filed a class action complaint on behalf of itself and similarly-situated advertisers against Facebook, Inc., in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

The complaint alleges that Facebook deceived, and continues to deceive advertisers by misrepresenting that it will display their ads to users within the target audiences they've defined in Facebook's Ads Manager, but then programming its software to display a material percentage of ads to users who fall outside the defined target audiences, and charging advertisers for those mistargeted ads, in order to maximize its own revenue (beyond what it could have otherwise earned solely from legitimately targeted ads).
