* Office Depot's troubles

Office Depot's laptop sales are Just the tip of the iceberg - apparently there's FTC troubles in the industry, relating to federal law:

?The federal law says you cannot make deceptive statements,? Greisman said. ?If somebody says a product is out of stock when it?s in stock, and they lied because they want to induce you to purchase a bunch of add-ons that you don?t want, there may be cause of action under federal law.?

Greisman also said that, even if a large retail chain has an official corporate policy which bans a sales practice, it can still be held responsible for employees who violate the written policy.
Some OD employees are also being told, apparently, to alter price tags in attempts to hide listings for things like warranty add-ons.

Office Depot needs to clean up their act. And I suggest people don't shop there for laptops!
