FRAUD DEFINITION:


1.
deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage. A particular instance of such deceit or trickery:
mail fraud; election frauds, Any deception, trickery. A person who makes deceitful pretenses; sham; poseur.


Ever buy a car? Too many scenarios to list here.

How about the grocery store where you only find out at the cash register the discount price tag on the shelf is only good for Reward Club members?

Miracle makeup that makes you look 20 years younger?


we only need to look at air travel which i am sure most of us use regularly-
FLY TO XXX for 25 (add your local currency here)
book it,
finally total = 350 or more.

oh, we did not include air transportation tax,etc etc etc
in the end paying far more than the other not so special discount.

same thing for those absolutely amazing offer to xxx  cheapest rooms in luxury hotels.
when you get there, all the tours are triple what you pay for at home .
so you stay in your hotel and go nowhere.

Not at all true. Those airfare shenanigans have long been banned in the EU. All costs are mentioned. Maybe you havent looked properly then for the past couple of years?

AirAsia is the KING of misleading pricing and you're not even allowed to get a refund or cancel your booking, no matter what, happened to me twice (small money but it's the principle !!).
