It is unethical here.I don't see this as illegal but certainly they are being deceptive to their customers.Many other retaile sellers of such products do this as well and it is frustrating.Legally I think they are within the law but it is a shady business practice.You are free to decide to work elsewhere I can understand how this would bother you ethically.But legally I don't see there is any crime being committed.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
