The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is mailing refunds to victims of a scam operated by  seven people and fifteen companies selling Auravie, Dellure, LeOR Skincare and Miracle Face Kit branded skincare products.  These scammers represented that the products were being offered through a “risk-free trial.,” but after convincing unwary consumers to provide their credit card numbers purportedly to cover a small shipping charge, billed their victims’ credit cards monthly for products never ordered by their victims.  The FTC shut down the scam and  is now mailing refunds to victims of the scam.  For more information about this particular refund program check out the “FTC Scam Refunds” tab in the middle of the first page of www.scamicide.com. You also can find information there about the mailing of the refund checks.

TIPS

It is always important to read the “fine print” in any contract for the ordering of products.  Rarely will you find anything “fine” in fine print, but in many scams, buried within the long agreement will be a term to which never agreed upon.  You should also research any skin care product as to whether it is effective before buying.  Finally, in regard to obtaining a refund from the FTC, there is no cost or fee to file a claim or get a refund.  Anyone who tells you differently is trying to scam you.
