1963 Avanti for sale on a website called Trovit. Advertised for $19500.00 When I responded to the ad, I was contacted by someone named Dr. Charles Walker who said he was MEDIC overseas. And if I wanted ther car to wire the money to a transport company in Idaho which is where the car was. Although the ad said Florida. I called the transport company and they said I had to wire the money first then I wouild get to see the car and if i didnt like it I could return it in 7 days for a full refund. Try as I did I offered to come see the car car but was told it is locked up and could not get access to it until I paid first.

Bait and switch

Used Priceline feature where you tell them the quality of hotel you want and they pick it. Guaranteed

Picked 4 star hotel or better. Hotel info then sent to me. Reviews by verified Priceline customers said the hotel is dirty and rundown. Many said it wasn't even a 2 star hotel

Immediately contacted Priceline and asked for a true 4 star hotel. Was told I had a restricted reservation. When I pointed out that their own customers reviewed it as dirty and rundown they read from a script about how my offer was restricted and I was stuck with it

This is a bait and switch offer
