A report by Citizen Advice found that people were tempted into free trials for slimming pills or similar health supplements, often by online pop-up adverts or across social media sites featuring celebrity endorsements.

 

People thought they were simply giving their debit or credit card details to pay for the £5 postage and packing.

 

But, if they’d read the extremely long small print, they would have discovered that they had signed up to a monthly subscription for these products unless they cancelled within a set period of time.

 

What can you do to about it?

 

Always read the terms and conditions of any agreement and be wary of any ‘free’ trials that ask for your debit or credit card details.

 

If you do find yourself unwittingly signed up to a CPA the law says you can withdraw your consent and stop a future payment at any time up to the end of business on the day before the payment is due. You can do this by contacting your card issuer.

 

Don’t be put off if they tell you to contact the retailer. It is your right to cancel with your card issuer, and in the case of subscription traps the companies involved are often based abroad and are hard to contact.

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
