    A request to exercise a collective action was filed Tuesday against a centre of a paintball from the Lanaudière region who is alleged to organize contests or misleading.

    “The sweepstakes offered by Bigfoot Paintball, it is a lure to get people to spend money in their establishment. We made them believe that they earn a free entry, but it is not the case “, argued the lawyer involved in the case, Philippe Larochelle. It represents Kathy Poulin, who considers that they have been taken advantage of in this case.

    The facts alleged by Ms. Poulin back to the summer of 2017. After winning a contest, it was announced that she won ” 12 free entries “.

    We asked him to book a date by requiring a deposit of $ 30 non-refundable per person. It is mentioned that the $ 30 will be credited on the spot to obtain items of paintball, such as balls, which were not included in the package won.
