A shill is an associate of a person selling goods or services or a political group, who pretends no association to the seller/group and assumes the air of an enthusiastic customer. The intention of the shill is, using crowd psychology, to encourage others unaware of the set-up to purchase said goods or services or support the political group's ideological claims.

in het Duits wordt gewoon de letterlijke vertaling gebruikt in deze context: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockvogel_(Person)

voor het Nederlands vind ik dat ook wel een goede oplossing...
