Review by 32031 on 2008-06-12
The FTC has ruled that free trial offers must clearly state their terms and not hide them in a 'conditions' link.

Anytime somebody says something is 'free' and they want my credit card or bank account number that is the end of the conversation or visit to a website.

I wonder if the FTC is going to make it mandatory for every person responding to a FREE offer be able to read and understand the terms of agreement?
