Sales Misrepresentation


I recently purchased the FIOS triple play thru the Pittsburgh, PA South Hills Village Verizon store. I was told by the sales rep that I also would get as part of the purchase a FREE tablet. That sounded great and I asked him to write it on the sale/install packet, which he did. He did not have any other literature available and said he said I would get a voucher in the mail for the tablet. 

When I fiinally did get the voucher, the voucher stated  I would have to buy a wireless service in order to get the table. The sales rep never mentioned anything about needing to buy a wireless service.  I took the voucher to the Verizon store and was basically told they could do nothing and gave me a number to call. This number turned out to be the general number for Verizon!.  More evasion.  

Selling something and then saying  you can not have it unless you buy something additiional is misleading, misrepresenatove and fraudulent.  

Who do I contact to formally report this type of sales behavior and get some resolutiion to false promises?
