Do not go anywhere near Abe’s of Maine. They used to be reputable but are now a bait and switch operation. Stay far, far away.

Aren't there laws in the U.S. against such practices? How are they getting away with it?

Essentially, they sell you a gray market product with none of the accessories that are supposed to come with it. After you’ve placed your order they make you pay ridiculous prices for those accessories. I have no idea how they get away with it, but it could be how they advertise the products or that regulatory agencies just haven’t received enough complaints to look into them and shut them down.
