Billed for something you didn't order?
In legal terms, the phrase “unordered merchandise” refers to a situation where you are billed for something you didn’t order. For instance, you receive shirt that you never ordered and then a bill and notices demanding payment. Or you responded to an ad for a “free” trial of a cosmetic product, but when you receive that product it comes with a bill.
Federal laws prohibit sending unordered merchandise to consumers and then demanding payment or assessing unauthorized charges.
