Say what? Deceptive advertsing is illegal. You can file a complaint with
the FTC if you'd like. As you might guess, it's one of those many crimes
easy for an individual or small seller to get away with.

Since prosecution of such crimes is so unlikely, I've been thinking of
forming (damn, just checked, and it's already taken!), a
network of sysadmins around the country willing to LART these guys,
sellers that engage is shill bidding, crooks that take the money and run,
crooks that send damaged goods, etc.
