The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced Monday that it has filed charges against
an Internet company which, by promising to pay customer Internet access fees, allegedly
conned consumers into paying membership charges and turning over personal information.
The charges, filed in U.S. federal court in Chicago, allege that New Millennium Concepts,
doing business as Rhinopoint.com, collected membership fees totaling about US$500,000, as
well as personal information, from at least 59,000 consumers. However, New Millenium paid
Internet access fees for fewer than 5 percent of Rhinopoint.com's members, the FTC said.
I was fooled by their scam also and I want to be payed my $16.00 back. I can't believe this happened.
