What is False Advertising?

False advertising is any claim about a product or service that is false, misleading or deceptive. Product misrepresentation and misleading advertisements can impact a consumer's decision to purchase or use a product based on false information. This can result in not only a financial loss but additional damages to the consumer in some cases.

False advertising tactics include:

  • High-pressure sales: pressuring a consumer to purchase the product or service

  • Deceptive form contracts: may include overlooked or ambiguous fine print

  • Bait and switch advertising: advertising a product or service they do not intend to provide or sell

  • Inflating prices: tricking consumers into thinking their sale is a great deal

  • Failure to disclose: not informing consumers about specific terms, such as when a product is unavailable
