"Going forward, this deal means that Dell will have to clearly and fully disclose the terms and conditions of their products and services to avoid this kind of fraud at the consumer's expense," Cuomo said.
The refund affects Dell customers who bought products from the company after being reportedly misled into believing they qualified for a no-interest promotion. Affected individuals also include those who purchased an at-home or on-site service contract and who experienced long telephone hold times or were told to open up the hardware of their computer.
