$4 charge calls for desperate measures…
Check it out:
An associate professor at Harvard Business School is on the warpath against a Boston-area Chinese restaurant over a misleading online menu he claims led to him being improperly charged $4 extra.
Ben Edelman, who teaches in the school’s Negotiations, Organizations, and Markets unit, is also a national expert on Internet fraud. Ordinarily, Edelman focuses his expertise on the concerns of major corporations, consulting with firms like Microsoft and the National Football League while being a sharp critic of some companies, such as Google.
Last Friday, however, after enjoying a takeout meal from Sichuan Garden, he turned his fraud-detecting expertise in a different direction, threatening legal action after discovering the restaurant’s online menu differed from its current prices.
