OFT issues anti-wrinkle cream warning

Fri, 20 Jan 2012

The Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading is warning of websites offering free trials of anti-wrinkle cream which then take large sums of cash from the customer.

The OFT says it's been contacted by consumers who've used a credit or debit card to pay for the postage for the free samples, only to find over £70 leaving their account.

By signing up to the free trial, the customers had also unknowingly agreed to a subscription, some of which are over £70 per month.

The organisation advises that anyone interested in such a product should read the terms and conditions carefully, and to research the company before handing over financial details.

More information is available from the Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading.
