An Amazon customer sued the marketplace over allegations that it charged him for its Amazon Prime program without his consent, according to the Courthouse News Service
“Gregory Harris filed the suit Wednesday against Amazon.com, alleging unfair competition and violations of consumer law and the federal Electronic Transfer Act,” according to the Courthouse News Services story. “Harris says he canceled the membership, but that if he had not noticed the charge, Amazon “would have taken additional unauthorized, multiple, and recurring payments.””
TopClassActions.com also wrote about the lawsuit, noting that another recently filed Amazon class action lawsuit had been dismissed in October by a California federal court.
“Plaintiffs Andrea Fagerstrom and Allen Wiseley, claimed that Amazon misrepresented competitive pricing by only selecting the highest price it could find for a particular item,” Top Class Actions wrote. “According to the court, the plaintiffs accepted the terms of Amazon’s arbitration agreement at the time they made their online purchase therefore the case was dismissed.”
Gregory Harris, et al. v. Amazon.com LLC, is Case No. BC606984 filed in the Superior Court of California for the County of Los Angeles.
