Who has not been a victim of “Bait & Switch” (B&S) providers? Lured by appealing descriptions or by hot pics on a website, it’s always very frustrating to find out that these descriptions or photos are just fakes and that you’ve just been screwed.
As a rule, when someone looks to good to be true, comes flashing out as a hot model directly from a fashion magazine, and has no credible reviews other than probable shills, it’s most certainly B&S. I’ve been astonished to find that there is a LOT of info on MERB about a surprizingly high number of potential B&S providers. However, not many members, newbies in particular, seem to take time to do a good research. For that reason, not many days go by without someone “discovering” the same B&S providers. Others take the bait and post their deception afterward, only to discover that it was already discussed in other threads before.
I’ve done a little research and came up with a very large number of threads on the subject. You’ll find in my following post a list of links to relevant MERB threads exposing either obvious or potential B&S cases, grouped by agency or “directory” links. Many of those subject websites are cross-referenced, just reinforcing in my opinion the suspicion of B&S.
Take a good look and judge by yourself the evidences. I’m providing this without prejudice to anyone and I hope this compendium of links can be useful. I’ve excluded some of the most controversial threads, specially those shifting away from the subject. If there are errors or omissions in the list, feel free to correct or update the information and add other links based on your own researches and experiences.
