Default Register.com and Deceptive trade practices

I called Register.com to see what the price was the year after the $3.95 intro offer because there wasn't any fine print to read. The customer service rep acted like he knew nothing but said it went to $38 per year afterwards.

This misleading ad probably violates the deceptive trade practices act in your state - it certainly would in Texas under Chap 22 of the Business and Commerce Code
