The Infamous Bait And Switch Tactics

Sales people pressure the customer into buying similar items which are often more expensive. This type of fraud has been around since 1617 when Zhang Yingyu wrote the book “The Book of Swindles” about such practices in China.
An example of this tactic can be seen with a lot Company who offers a dual garage door spring repair and replacement deal for $249, an offer that sounds too good to be true. When all costs are added up including advertising expenses, material costs, labor costs and technician compensation Those Companies barely makes any returns or profits from this deal. Despite this fact Garage Doors Company still advertises this deal online as they must attract new customers and generate calls or sales in order to keep their business running.
