Identifying That you Were a Victim of Bait and SwitchThe FTC has done an excellent job of creating guidelines that clarify when a “bait and switch” situation has happened. According to the FTC, you weren’t a victim of a bait and switch con if you:
- Were convinced to buy something different
- If the seller simply runs out of whatever item they were promoting, especially when the business clearly stated that they only had limited quantities of the promoted item
- The only way you are a true victim of bait and switch is when the seller clearly had no intention of selling the promoted product.
