FTC to Hold Workshop Examining Online Event Ticket Sale - Agency Seeks Input in Advance of March 2019 Workshop; Project No. P18450
Whether it is a hotel room, travel tickets, show tickets, or what ever you can order to do; there are extra fees added which are determined by the price or item, are known in advance, and will be part of the final purchase price of the product. When sales plans offer a price that they know cannot be the final price as the final price, I feel as if I am the victim of a "bait and switch" scam. I have been offered something at a price only to find that what I got was a different price, not "as advertised". I have been told that there are laws against this type of practice, but we have allowed loopholes to be used to get around the laws. I believe that the loopholes should be closed.
