We all know someone who bought something from a website and missed the fine print, only to discover down the road that they unknowingly agreed to a hidden billing schedule or recurring charges. This results in unexpected credit card charges, emotional distress, and countless hours lost in dispute. In the end, there's no guarantee that the consumer will even get their money back.
According to a 2011 report by the Internet Crime Complaint Center, the average consumer falling victim to internet fraud lost a median of $636, with the total monetary loss reaching as high as $485,253,871. Other statistics for that year included:
