I saw the following deceptive sign blogged about on LAist
It seems to advertise a dozen roses for $4, but on closer inspection it's actually advertising a dozen roses for $10. A classic bait and switch scam.
I wrote about some similar advertising scams in Hippo Eats Dwarf
. My favorites were the Cleveland Finance Loan Company which enticed those seeking a loan with this offer: "Pay nothing til first payment."
Dunkin Donuts offered: "Free 3 muffins when you buy 3 at the regular 1/2 dozen prize."
And a car dealership boasted: "The price you see is half the price you pay!" Think about it. It means everything on the lot was going for double the sticker price.
