English term or phrase: bait-and-switch
Definition from TapRun.com:
Advertising one product but pressuring (or only allowing) customers to purchase another (generally inferior or higher-markup) item.

Example sentence(s):
  • Another instance where buyers cry “bait-and-switch” when the tactic doesn’t really apply is when there are limited quantities of a particular product. A retail store owner could offer a product at a discount but also state that the offer would be available to the first ten or fifteen customers. Afterward, the product will be sold at its usual price. The event cannot be classified as a bait-and-switch strategy as the seller initially gave clear details regarding the offer. InvestingAnswers

  • Victims of a bait-and-switch scam have some recourse when advertised products or services are not available as advertised. The consumer can sue for false advertising Money Crashers
