FTC Halts Deceptive Supplements & Cosmetics "Free Trial" Scheme
On May 8, 2020, the owners of AH Media Group, LLC agreed to halt their allegedly deceptive practice of luring consumers with supposed "free trial" offers for cosmetics and dietary supplements, then enrolling them in subscriptions and billing them without their consent. The company's owners pitched at least eight different product lines to customers, including weight loss supplements and products that promote younger-looking skin. As part of the settlement with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the company is barred from misrepresenting trial offers and from charging consumers without express permission, and the defendants must pay $4,345,000.
