Cheapoair false advertising

    Cheapoair.com has been aggressively advertising NON-EXISTENT air fares from BOS to PDL for as low as $278 round trip. These fares DO NOT EXIST and never have ! NYTImes, Washington Post, and on other sites their pop up advertising shows these fares. Is anyone else angry with this false advertising ?!? What can we do to stop them ??
    Thank you-- Stephen Brown, a frequent flyer to TER in the Azores

    Repeatedly click on the links without buying anything to drive up their ad costs? Otherwise just ignore....

    There was a time long, long ago when you could not block pop ups on a PC. Back then I was relentlessly pursued by Orbitz with the same kind of fake fares. It was so bad I pledged that I would never, ever do business with them and advised my friends and family the same. One is left to wonder if these ambush tactics work with anyone.
