The Washington state Attorney General has announced a $3 million settlement against a Seattle-based beauty products subscription company for deceptive marketing practices.
Attorney General Bob Ferguson says Julep Beauty Inc. lured consumers into its subscription service by offering “welcome boxes” without properly disclosing the company was also signing those consumers up for a monthly subscription that started at $19.99 a month.
Consumers only realized the problem, when the charges occurred on their credit cards.
Ferguson said the company then made it extremely difficult for consumers to cancel the service.
