Mock auction
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 3
§ 24. Mock auction. A person who buys or sells, or pretends to buy or
sell, any goods, wares, or merchandise, or any species of property
except ships, vessels, or real or leasehold estate, exposed for sale by
auction, if an actual sale, purchase, and change of ownership therein
does not thereupon take place, is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by
imprisonment for thirty days, or by fine not exceeding one hundred
dollars or both.

A person who obtains money or property from another, or obtains the
signature of another to any writing, the false making of which would be
forgery, by means of any false or fraudulent sale of property or
pretended property by auction, or by any of the practices known as mock
auctions, is guilty of a misdemeanor; and in addition thereto he
forfeits any license he may hold to act as an auctioneer, and is forever
disqualified from receiving a license to act as an auctioneer in this
state.
