The 5th Offence: Bait and Switch
The making by a trader of an invitation to purchase a product at a specified price is a bait and switch if, having made the invitation, the trader then, with the intention of promoting a different product, refuses to show or demonstrate the product; refuses to take orders for the product or deliver it within a reasonable time; or shows or demonstrates a defective sample of the product.
