Merchants can attempt to swindle a shopkeeper and thus sell an item for considerably more than the merchant would otherwise receive. The merchant can also attempt to receive credits for worthless and very low-cost items. Swindle cannot be used with vehicles, animals, or ships. Some merchants are known to refuse further services if you fail to negotiate properly.
