A by representing himself as a well-known millionaire obtains goods on credit from B and then sells them for cash to C. What remedies, if any, has B against C?

A contract entered into as the result of misrepresentation is voidable at the option of the injured party and will remain binding until set aside. It is also an established rule of law that if the seller whose title is voidable, and before it is avoided, sells the goods to a bona fide purchaser, he gets a good title (Phillips v Brooks ). Following this principle of law it is submitted that B has no right against C, if he bought in good faith. But B can sue A for the price of the goods.
