In a strikingly similar pattern, consumers allege they were scammed by a wide variety of diet, skin care, e-Cig, and sleeping aid “free trial” negative options that billed their credit cards for charges up to $500 without their consent.

“This has to be one of the biggest internet scams I have ever personally seen even if it is for relatively small amounts of money.  Why they continue to get away with this is mind boggling.”

“They are a bait and switch, they offer the 30-day “risk-free” and 14-day trial, however the fine print is how they take advantage of you and charge you extra, including doubling shipping charges.”

The FTC considers the phrase “negative option” or “free trial” to broadly refer to a category of commercial transactions in which sellers interpret a customer’s failure to take an affirmative action, either to reject an offer or cancel an agreement, as assent to be charged for goods or services.  For a glossary of terms used by free trial merchants, read this article.

Hope he goes to jail and I hope they take everything he has and gives the people back their money plus some. Hope he is left with nothing and owes for a long time. I can't stand a lier and a thief. If you want something work for it honesty. Piece of trash.

He doesn't look smart enough to have pulled this off.

These people suck. I did this free trial once and read the fine print you have 14 days to cancel however you don’t receive your product for like 20 days so it’s tough to cancel when you don’t even have it to test it and that’s how they start charging your credit card. POS should go to prison.

Mark Gibson

If he was that smart he burried enough to not have to worry about money whenever he gets out of jail then again he might not get out to spend it.

Needs a sledge hammer on his sticky fingers

A Scam is only a Scam if you fall for it.

We're collecting a list of these folks. If you are threatened by John Monarch or anyone else over exercising free speach, i.e. Shaunice Griffin recently commented about her experience at DOS and that she quite because she "felt like it was a scam," please contact us here: https://usaherald.com/contact-us/
