2. If improving your cerebral functions by sitting in front of a computer screen playing games sounds too good to be true, then you came to the same conclusion as the Federal Trade Commission – that it's a bunch of bunk. According to the Federal Trade Commission, the popular program consisting of 40 mental games purported to improve performance at work and in school, and reduce or delay serious health conditions, including dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Have you ever tried one of these games on the Lumosity site?

3. Lumosity is on the hook for its deceptive brain ads, and the company has been ordered to pay a $2 million fine to the Federal Trade Commission for its lamebrain advertisements toting the benefits of its "brain training" games. The company was originally hit with a $50 million fine, but the FTC settled on only $2 million because of the company's "poor financial situation." Lumosity claims to have 70 million users in 180 countries. Consumers are charged monthly subscriptions for online access to the company's "brain games," – ranging from $15 per month to a lifetime membership of $300. Do you think a class action lawsuit will follow next with users demanding their money back?
