FTC Junk Fees Rule Comment

In February 2023, TINA.org submitted a comment in response to the FTC’s request for comments regarding whether to commence a rulemaking proceeding to address junk and hidden fees.

In its comment, TINA.org discussed its experience investigating such deceptive marketing tactics, as well as statistics showing how widespread and harmful they are. TINA.org also expressed support for the commission’s commencement of a rulemaking proceeding, especially in the wake of the Supreme Court’s AMG Capital Management decision, as a rule will substantially improve the agency’s ability to combat and deter deception and unfairness in this area.
