FTC Sends Refund Checks to Consumers of Deceptive "Free Trial" Scheme
On June 22, 2020, the FTC announced it is mailing 187,425 checks totaling more than $8.7 million to consumers who signed up online for "risk-free trial offers" for products such as skin creams and dietary supplements, but were then charged full price and enrolled in expensive subscription plans without their knowledge. The refunds are being distributed as part of a May, 2019 settlement with Triangle Media Corporation and other defendants of charges of deceptive risk-free trials.
