We're solar panels the first misleading advertising, or was it, or was it Life Lock, and when will the government put a stop to them?

1. We're means "We are". Your post is nonsense.
2. Even with that gross error fixed, your post is still nonsense.
3. Which government? The government of Sri Lanka? Sweden?

@Rickoshay75,
Yes, of course misleading advertising is a crime. Misleading advertising occurs when a claim about a product or service is materially false or misleading.

@Rickoshay75,
In Canada it is supposed to be a crime.

It's like advertising Cats for sail and shipping a dog.

Ebay has insurance for that.
You can technically sue the company that lied in the advertising.

The problem is that if you do not know how to communicate, the company can get away with small technicalities as simple as grammar, or subject matter.

You as an buyer/audience may just be gullible or rash. And that is your fault for not being more observant in the eyes of the law. Sadley. Companies win these false advertising lawsuits by saying, "Oh yes but, in actuality, that wasn't what we were advertising, -" and hen they explain the subject matter and grammar.

They are still technically criminals. but you need to be smart or have a good lawyer.
