On July 8, 2020, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) charged the online marketer SuperGoodDeals.com, Inc. and its owner, Kevin J. Lipsitz, with falsely promising consumers next-day shipping of facemasks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to use during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the federal complaint against SuperGoodDeals and Lipsitz, the company's website stated that PPE was "in stock" and advertised "Pay Today, Ships Tomorrow," but SuperGoodDeals received hundreds of complaints about shipping delays. These deceptive tactics violate the FTC Act and FTC's Mail Order Rule, which requires companies to ship goods within the promised timeframe.

In a news release about the charges, the FTC noted it files a complaint when it has "reason to believe" that the named defendants are "violating or are about to violate the law and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. The case will be decided by the court."
