Shark Liftaway Vacuum Cleaner

The Shark Liftaway Vacuum Cleaner is sold in TV infomercials. They tell you that the vacuum costs less than $200. Then they tell you it costs 5 easy payments of $49.95 (= $249.75). Then they say they if you act now, they will remove one payment. This patter is designed to trick you into thinking you are getting the vacuum for $150. If they lie to you about the price, they will lie about anything else.
