Even though Fishman is the owner of the VitaCup brand, he said he lost the buy box to a reseller of his coffee products. That meant it was indexed by Amazon's pricing algorithms, Fishman said, causing him to lose the buy box. Angus Mordant | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesWinning the buy box is paramount to a seller's success on Amazon. Nearly 98% of sales made on Amazon go through the buy box button, the FTC alleged in its suit. "The only way to get back the Amazon buy box is to lower our price on Amazon," Arnold said.

Alexandra Pavlova | Getty ImagesThe Biden administration's efforts on student loan forgiveness have repeatedly been met with legal challenges. And experts say Biden's do-over effort at delivering sweeping debt forgiveness is almost certain to face similar opposition. Amid all the anxiety-provoking news, here's what relief student loan borrowers can still count on — at least for now. Most of SAVE plan is still in effectThe Biden administration rolled out the SAVE plan in the summer of 2023, describing it as "the most affordable student loan plan ever."

The nature of illegal lockouts means they are hard to track directly. One of the responding officers calls a sergeant over, who says there's nothing else they can do. While only 14% of lockout calls led to a police report, 86% of calls about shoplifting did. As they walk over, one of the officers tells the other to look up "illegal lockout" on his phone. A 2006 bill that would have defined illegal lockouts for all Illinois residents was defeated.

Roth individual retirement account conversions are a popular way to reduce future levies on pretax 401(k) or IRA withdrawals — and you can smooth out the upfront tax hit with a "Roth conversion ladder," experts say. Roth conversions transfer pretax or nondeductible IRA money to a Roth IRA, which offers future tax-free growth. The trade-off is regular income taxes incurred that year on the converted balance. By comparison, a Roth conversion ladder is a series of conversions over multiple years, meaning "you're paying taxes in smaller increments," said certified financial planner Preston Cherry, founder and president of Concurrent Financial Planning in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Of course, boosting your adjusted gross income any year can trigger other tax consequences, such as phaseouts for certain tax breaks.

The regulators wrote that the app billed itself as a “safe space” for teens but, in reality, preyed on them. The app, known as NGL, had been downloaded millions of times, according to the complaint. NGL deceptively hooked teens into subscribing to its premium service by sending them fake, anonymous messages and then promising to reveal the sender after they paid, said the complaint. Highlighting the groundbreaking nature of the NGL settlement, FTC Commissioner Andrew Ferguson described Tuesday’s action as a “novel” use of the agency’s legal powers. But, he argued, the public should not interpret the lawsuit to mean that it is illegal in general to market any anonymous messaging app to teens.

Courtesy: Magnolia PicturesScammers exploit 'fear and urgency'Scams like the one Thelma fell victim to are increasingly common, experts say. Typically, AI voice scams mimic distress calls. The common denominator is that it's coming from someone you care about who needs money "fast." A 2023 survey from McAfee found that 25% of adults have experienced a similar AI voice scam — and the company says 77% of victims have lost money as a result. But older adults aren't the only ones at risk; younger people who spend more time online are increasingly vulnerable, CFP Andrew Sivertsen said.

New York CNN —A federal judge on Wednesday delayed a ban on noncompete agreements from taking effect for a small number of US workers on September 4. Unless the judge makes another ruling before that date, the ban will go into effect for the majority of employers in the US. The ban, which prohibits employers from enforcing noncompete clauses in most existing employment agreements and bans companies from including them in all future ones, was approved by the Federal Trade Commission in April. The FTC estimates that 30 million people — one in five US workers — are bound by a noncompete clause in their current jobs. In response to the order, FTC spokesperson Douglas Farrar said, “The FTC stands by our clear authority, supported by statute and precedent, to issue this rule.

New York CNN —A stalemate in Washington could destroy a landmark tax deal that was painstakingly hammered out among 140 countries over the better part of a decade. Some analysts say that the United States’ inability to ratify the deal could lead to a tax war among the richest nations that would hit tech behemoths like Google, Apple, Meta and Amazon particularly hard. Canada recently implemented a local tax on the world’s largest tech companies, something the OECD treaty had sought to avoid. New Zealand has also said it will implement its own digital services tax on large multinational companies beginning in 2025. The FTC also said that documents showed that competing mattress suppliers would lose access to its most important retail channel.

Cybercriminals are targeting wealth accounts by tapping into a victim's emotions. Consumers lost $1.14 billion to romance scams in 2023, according to the Federal Trade Commission. Median losses per person amounted to $2,000, the highest reported losses for any form of imposter scam, the FTC found. "Romance scams tend to be some of the more insidious because they prey on emotions," Kitten said. "They know the different emotional trigger points that we all have, and that's when they strike," Payton added.

CNN —A major Supreme Court ruling Friday that shifted power from the executive branch to the judiciary stands to transform how the federal government works. By overturning a 1984 precedent, the court’s conservative majority has made countless regulations vulnerable to legal challenge. The Supreme Court ruling could boost efforts by conservatives who have taken aim at the Biden Environmental Protection Agency’s rules limiting planet-warming pollution from vehicles, oil and gas wells and pipelines, and power plants. The ruling has injected legal uncertainty into regulations of all types, including those on technology, labor, the environment and health care. But the Supreme Court has yet to decide a case heard this term that might gut that limitation.

CNBC's Investing in Space newsletter offers a view into the business of space exploration and privatization, delivered straight to your inbox. A great example of that from this week is United Launch Alliance's Cert-2 mission. Enter the National Security Space Launch (NSSL) program. Well, the Pentagon's already bought a whole bunch of Vulcan launches and expects two of those missions – USSF-106 and USSF-87 – to fly before the end of the year. That was back when Blue Origin had a BE-4 engine explode during acceptance testing — an engine that was intended for the Cert-2 launch.
