Bare Minerals / Fraudulent Ad

I completed a survey online and was offered a 9 piece set of Bare Minerals for $1. According to the ad, I would only be charged the $1 plus S&H. Immediately after making the purchase with my credit card, I was re-directed to the site where I found out this was a $1 trial offer and would be billed the full amount after a certain amount of days. I called within 30 minutes to cancel the purchase, was put on hold for over 10 minutes and then told that I would be refunded the S&H charge but that the $1 charge was non-refundable (some processing fee). I argued against the $1 charge and was told that I had agreed to this condition when I made the purchase. NO, I was not provided any of this information until AFTER I charged my card. Next time, I will research any offers like these before I make the purchase (from another site).
