Hi there everyone,
This is my first post so go easy on me! :p
I was wondering if there were any laws against deliberate mis-pricing of goods to gain publicity and/or user subscriptions. I'm starting to see more and more high profile companies with massively discounted items which end up being a "mis-price". These companies generally have well written terms and conditions meaning that they don't have to supply at this price. More often than not, these items happen to be out of stock (hmmmm).
My question is: do hotukdeals do anything to prevent people posting their own mis-priced goods, or, do any kind of follow-up into massively mis-priced goods? I'd rather hotukdeals wasn't littered with bogus deals.
I for one (stupidly) got caught up in the whole Littlewoods Laptops fiasco and realised that even though I phoned afterwards to get my details removed from their system (not straighforward!) I am still registered as a customer with them (somehow!) and even received a credit agreement from them to sign last week! Have I been conned into signing up?......
