Rihanna was recently spotted with A $ AP Rocky again. It did not take more to panic the fans, convinced that she recovered with her ex. But if she is buzzing today, it is not for her love life. The interpreter of "Stay" is accused by the organization Truth In Advertising (TINA) of scamming its customers with its brand of lingerie Savage X Fenty. How? 'Or' What ? By making them subscribe to a monthly subscription of 49.95 dollars without them noticing it during a purchase on its site. The consumer association has therefore filed several complaints with the Federal Trade Commission which manages unfair commercial practices and with the attorney for the district of Santa Cruz in California. The 31-year-old Barbadian has allegedly violated several laws by promoting deceptive discounts and prices. The subscription in question offers many advantages on the different products of the brand but only if they cost more than the latter. In addition, the price of the forced subscription is automatically debited from the customers' bank account, without them having bought anything.
"The advertisement itself does not specify what you are buying. There is also a little extra in your basket that says 'Member' but there is no price next to it, just the letter 'X'. world doesn’t check their bank account every month and there are women who don’t realize and who complained three months later that they had been charged $ 150 " said Shana Mueller, a spokesperson for TINA. For her part, Rihanna who contributed to the fall of Victoria's Secret with Savage X Fenty, ensures that her company is in compliance with the laws in force. "These accusations are false and based on preconceived ideas about our business. We are proud of our flexible subscription program because it allows us to offer unparalleled quality and value to our consumers. We firmly believe in transparency, that's why we provide multiple information on membership conditions throughout the purchase process, within advertisements, and through our engagement policy " said brand representative Emma Tully in an email to CNN Business. An investigation is underway.
