Chicago - Red alert on Redbox: Consumer complaints have been piling up after customers claim they've unfairly been charged late fees.
FOX Chicago News looked at the Chicago-area based DVD rental business.
"Hard to imagine how a dollar night turn into $380,” the plaintiff's attorney Jeff Millar said.
Millar said more than 200 complaints have been filed with the Federal Trade Commission since January of this year.
He argued the problem starts with Redbox's Web site.

Festooned with the slogan "no late or hidden fees ever," Redbox's bright red kiosks offer rental DVDs for a dollar a night; keep a movie longer than 24 hours, and you'll be charged $1 for every subsequent night, or you can keep a title for $25. So ... are those charges for additional nights de-facto—and hence, "illegal"—late fees, as a new lawsuit claims? Video Business reports that the class-action lawsuit was filed by Illinois resident Laurie Piechur, who apparently got fired up after she found twin $25 charges on her credit card for two Redbox movies she never returned ("27 Dresses" and "Fool's Gold").
