16 CFR Part 425: "Rule Concerning the Use of Prenotification Negative Option Plans"

I have been the victim of "free trials" scheme when I thought I had charged my card over the internet for a product. I found out later the companies used false ads using Dr. OZ and when they sent me a free bottle of product, I noticed that they charged me full amount around 85 dollars, then the following month they charged me again for product that I had not ordered. I had returned the products, tried calling them, but no one listened on the # provided. My husband called credit card company and they responded and corrected the problem. I have written to FTC in the past about getting strange emails which uses my email address to send me info. The companies change internet addresses etc. In other words, these unethical practices hurt consumers. Hopefully you will address these issues. Thank you for allowing me to inform you of internet fraud.
