The person behind recent Facebook class action

Here is a story about Rebecca Swift, the woman suing Facebook and Zynga for providing the platform for deceptive ads.   She is suing because she signed up for a “free trial” of green tea and ended up being charged $165 for the tea instead.  She was playing this game from her Facebook profile through the Zynga gaming network. 

Isn’t the real issue one of fraud not deceptive advertising?  And isn’t the cause of action against the provider of the green tea?   To my mind she might as well sue her Internet provider along with Facebook and Zynga for giving her access to the Internet.
