Challenge 029:
(noun; phrase) 1. the action (generally illegal) of advertising goods that are an apparent bargain, with the intention of substituting inferior or more expensive goods. / also: "a bait-and-switch scheme"

It's a dishonest trait as old as barter itself: using the lure of something too good to be true and springing the real, lesser version on someone at the last minute. It's a tactic that appears in more areas than just commerce, too: it can also be found in travel, law, politics and entertainment. People respond to this duplicity in all kinds of ways: some go through with it, some try to bargain for the original deal, and some get angry about being tricked! Write a story where someone is, or almost is, swindled in this way.

BONUS GOAL: One Way Mirror

If your submission contains a scene featuring the use of a one-way mirror, that entry will earn an extra point to be tallied during voting!
