HARRISBURG – Attorney General Shapiro today announced he entered into settlement agreements with Pittsburgh-based companies Arrowmistic, LLC — also known as Wicca Movement — and Cultured Quotes, LLC.

These companies generated sales by posting advertisements on Facebook that offered consumers “free jewelry”. What these advertisements failed to clearly disclose was that customers would automatically be enrolled in a membership club for which they’d be billed unless they cancelled.

According to allegations in the settlement, Arrowmistic, LLC and Cultured Quotes, LLC violated Pennsylvania’s Consumer Protection Law by misrepresenting offers as free to consumers when they were not and failing to disclose to consumers the material terms and conditions of their subscription billing practices.

Under today’s settlements, the companies paid a total of $25,000, to be dispersed to consumers via refunds.  In order to be eligible for a refund, consumers have 90 days to file a complaint with with the Bureau of Consumer Protection at https://www.attorneygeneral.gov or by calling 1-800-441-2555.
