'Girls Gone Wild' claims settled

February 21, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Buyers of "Girls Gone Wild" videos reached a preliminary settlement over claims they were enrolled in a video club and billed without their knowledge, lawyers for a group of buyers said.

Mantra Films Inc., which bills itself as "the corporate infrastructure behind the Girls Gone Wild lifestyle brand," sent buyers of the videos other DVDs they hadn't ordered and charged their credit cards $26 plus shipping and handling, the lawyers said.

Mantra has said the customers agreed to be enrolled in the club. Mantra did not immediately comment on the settlement, and terms were not disclosed.
