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 β€œwelcome 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.
