Unwanted shipments following free trial offer

April 24, 2018

Dear Consumer Ed:  I responded to an online ad for a free trial offer of skin cream. I received the cream and my credit card was charged $4.95 as stated. A month later, I received another jar of the skin cream, and my credit card was charged $94.99.  I never ordered that second jar of cream.  Then the following month I received another jar and there was another $94.99 charge to my credit card.  It was a big hassle to get the company to refund my money. I never asked to be sent additional products after the free trial offer. Didn’t the company violate the law by doing this?
