Bait and switch

I just found two listings (by different dealerships in different States) for what purported to be used Prius Fours, which, when I checked the VIN
at carfax.com, turned out to be Prius Twos.
Is this kind of thing common with other models and makes, or is bait and switch easier and more common with Priuses because there is no badge on the back to indicate the trim level?

I have seen cases where Prius or Prius v that show as base models (i.e. 2, 3 or Three) on the Toyota Owners site are legitimate factory up-market cars (i.e. models 4, 5, or Five), based on the features build out.

In at least one of those cases, I know that the purported Prius Four is only a Prius Two -- because I inspected the vehicle and found that it does not have the Prius Four features that were included in the seller's description and were the basis of the Kelly Blue Book estimate of the vehicle's fair market price (or whatever term Kelly uses) and the displayed "CARFAX Value."
I found another listing where the heading said "Prius Four," but the detailed description was that of a Prius Two, and the price and the displayed "CARFAX Value" were appropriate for a Prius Two.
