    if i say that some product is free instead of risk free and not to tell people about charging some amount of money after 20 days, then am i going to be in trouble?

    I'm really scared about it. Please give me any advice. I see many people promote free trial offers and anybody had a trouble with those offers?

    Illegal? Nah. Immoral? Maybe. Most of us, at least me, leave it up to the consumer to check the TOS on the offer's site. Just don't get yourself in a bind by writing the wrong type of ad.

    Me personally, no. I think that if youre promoting a free trial then simply state its a free trial. Not "free trial for x days, then x per month". The details are in the TOS, let the consumer be responsible for that.

    If you are worry about it, then don't do it! That's all I can advice you since you knew that it's wrong to cheat your customers.

    listen, if the product IS indeed free, say even for a certain amount of time then you should be ok, as long as somewhere you put in VERY VERY VERY small print that it will charge after X amount of days, then you will be golden, abide by them rules.

    It's pretty much been said.... first and foremost protect yourself and always remember that even when you cloak things, they can follow the money if they care enough. Be enticing... sell the sizzle, but make sure you have the REAL details somewhere on your site.
