Investigation and pending class action alleging Microsoft Corporation and Best Buy Stores, Inc.
The investigation is based upon consumer reports that Best Buy and Microsoft established MSN internet access accounts and trial subscriptions in the names of consumers without their consent or knowledge, and charged their credit or debit cards for the unauthorized, unused service. Specifically, Microsoft and Best Buy signed Best Buy customers up for "free' trial" subscriptions to Microsoft's MSN internet service without their knowledge or consent, and then charged those consumers for the service after the end of the trial period, whether the consumers used the service or not.
