A King’s Lynn resident received a pop up message on her computer which offered a ‘free’ sample of face cream.
She gave her card details to pay for the postage and packing and later realised that as well as ordered the ‘free’ product she had also agreed to a monthly supply costing £75 a month.
Luckily she spotted this quickly and was able to cancel the subscription before any money was taken from her account - enquiries indicate that the business is run from overseas.
Our advice is to be wary of such offers and check the small print before giving credit or debit card details.
