FTC Sends Checks to People Who Were Charged Hidden Fees
The FTC is mailing 53,595 refund checks totaling $748,070 to consumers nationwide who signed up for an “online auction kit” from Commerce Planet that was supposed to be free. According to the FTC, consumers who bought the kit were enrolled automatically in a trial membership called the Online Supplier program. Consumers who failed to cancel their Online Supplier membership before the end of the trial period were charged monthly fees of up to $59.95. The FTC alleged that many of these consumers were charged the monthly fees without their consent.
