Free Samples

After using your credit card to pay $5 to cover handling and shipping costs, you receive the “free” sample product you ordered. A few weeks later you receive a larger bottle of the product along with an invoice stating that $75 has been charged to your credit card. By failing to read the cancellation policy in the terms and conditions for ordering the “free” sample, you were enrolled in the company’s monthly automatic shipping program. To avoid such scams be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully. Free rarely means free in Internet commerce.
