A logical fallacy in induction, where the sample size is too small. Although induction cannot absolutely prove something, it can make probabilistic statements.

Example: "My friend said his Toyota always needs repairs, so all Japanese cars are bad investments."

To prove it false, use statistics to show the probability that the conclusion is wrong are large. You could also use an inductive argument so show it's probably false.
