Lawsuit claims it sent unwanted goods to users and then charged for them...

AOL is being sued by thousands of consumers who say they have been charged for goods they never ordered. According to reports a US federal lawsuit filed in Chicago alleges the firm "unlawfully charged and collected money for unordered merchandise". It claims customers were sent products advertised on AOL, despite clicking a "no thanks" button. They were later charged for the goods.
