Tips on how to not get tricked

Be careful when you start to see claims of “free” and “risk free trials” or “samples”, that’s a warning sign that maybe you should think twice

Watch out for claims of limited time offers or limited supplies

Look online for any negative reviews about the product and mentions of any “free trial”

Look very carefully for any hidden Terms and Conditions, often buried on the last page

Make sure to read the Terms and Conditions carefully for any sign of recurring fees or subscriptions

Look for pre-checked terms and conditions before you click that “acceptance box”,

Some people have advised using alternate modes of payment, eg PayPal

Always carefully read your credit and debit cards statements for recurring charges
