Online gaming company EZcomeEZgo collects customer credit cards data and SSNs. Its published security policy states that it protects each customer’s personal information. Its credit card data is not exposed in a breach but customer SSNs are. Since learning that the protection of SSNs is nowhere near as strong as that for credit cards, the FTC claims that EZcomeEZgo’s business practice is deceptive.
