BAIT AND SWITCH

Have you ever experienced a bait-and-switch scam? Bait-and-switch is a form of fraud used in retail sales.


It is also employed in other forms and contexts. 

At first, would-be customers are "baited" by merchants' advertising of a very low-priced item or product but the would-be customers are encouraged to buy a more expensive one as the low-priced item is no longer available.

Beware: There are a lot of scammers especially on the internet today. The scammer would attract a would-be customer by advertising a low-priced product and the unknowing would-be customer would then be offered to buy a higher priced item or items because the low-priced product in the ads that he or she saw was already sold even though it was posted an hour ago. Galing naman ni kuya kaka-post lang ng truck nabenta na agad agad? Kaya bibentahan ka na ngayon ng mga pagkamahal mahal na mga iba pa nilang items.
