Give me my money back – I know my rights! But do you REALLY know them?

A £1,198 sofa on sale at £98? I’ll take two! Or a £450 Nokia Lumia 800 smartphone for £120 – a steal at a quarter of the price. And what about a £500 laptop for £40? Sold. This is indeed fantasy shopping but – for a few brief hours – it was actually a reality for customers...
