Devious and Horrible Products and Ads Designed to Manipulate People

Ideally, the buyer/seller relationship should be one where upfront sellers provide a valuable product or service to people who are happy to pay for it. This is often not the case. In reality it can be a one-sided war between companies and consumers, with companies trying every underhanded tactic they can come up with to inconvenience, scare and manipulate their own customers into overpaying for horrible products. Seriously, these products and ads were designed by jerks.
