Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

As of 30 December 2005, DirecWay advertises to its users that they can upgrade from Home (to Professional for $69.99/mo.

When you call DirecWay, they tell you that the upgrade is only for users of DirecWay 7000. Other users must pay $89.99/mo.

Nowhere in any of their advertisements does it list such a requirement nor do any ads mention that other restrictions apply.

This is a blatent case of false advertising and/or bait and switch.

I have made copies of their web pages, both source and output, to prove that such advertisements were being made.
