|Case Name:||Smith, et al. v Intuit, Inc.,
Case No.: 5:12-cv-00222 (N.D. Cal.)
It is alleged that people purchasing Intelius products were enrolled in membership programs that charged monthly fees (by a company called Adaptive Marketing LLC). For example, after purchasing something at Intelius, customers would be offered an opportunity to save $10 by partaking in a short survey … buried in the fine print what completing the survey actually meant was that they would find that they were now going to be charged $20 per month on their credit card which would continue until they noticed what was going on.
