Additional Complaint Information

On September 2, 2011, BBB recognized a pattern of complaints from consumers regarding sales practice issues. Consumers allege they were not aware of a monthly fee when purchasing a game at the WildCoin Club price. WildCoin Club enrollment includes a discounted purchase of games through the use of WildCoins, and the consumer is charged $6.99 per month for the purchase of 50 WildCoins per month, for a minimum of 12 months.

WildTangent Inc has since worked with BBB to change the language on its website to clearly and conspicuously disclose all terms to consumers regarding WildCoin purchase terms. BBB encourages consumers to carefully review the terms and conditions of products or services of any company prior to purchase.
