If so, are you in a large population area, same or different companies and how are they advertising?

Not sure about bait and switch but I consider my market poorly educated in St Louis.

Many customers fall for the low moisture advertisements.

They are all over vegas. I see signs advertising $8 per room all the time. The Zerorez franchise here is operating on bait & switch as well. They are constantly running radio ads for 3 rooms for $69. I hear stories from customers all the time that called Zerorez and ended up paying over $500 by the time they are done.

Here in my small town of Pahrump bait & switch really isn’t an issue. We’ve had a few come to town over the years but they never last. They are usually gone in less than a year.
