"Sold someone a pup" -> nghĩa là mua phải thứ hoàn toàn vô giá trị, bị lừa đảo, lừa bịp.

Ví dụ
Most pets are for families with kids who are bored (chán nản) in the Lockdown. But be warned, there are many scammers (kẻ lừa đảo) out there and you might get sold a pup.

Consumers are being sold a pup. The cost-benefit analysis purportedly (tự cho là) justifying (bảo chữa) the grid link is a travesty (nhại lại). Aside from the standby plant being omitted from the project cost, its fundamental assumptions are false and important calculations and data on costs and profitability have been withheld from public scrutiny. I for one have raised a Freedom of Information request to obtain the figures.

MIKEL ARTETA is now finding out that life as Arsenal boss is not all it is cracked up to be. Only six months into his first manager’s job, he is already wondering if he has been sold a pup by the Emirates executives.
