The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of those who acquired Tingo Group, Inc.

Investors have until August 9, 2023 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
