Dallas, Texas 11/26/2013 (Financialstrend) – Groupon Inc (NASDAQ:GRPN) sends out daily deals, offers and promotions to its subscribers across the country via its daily deals website. Now being the holiday season, there are a large number of such deals available and many retailers, stores and services are offering very attractive deals and discounts to customers.
But the company seems to have goofed up as far as one massage therapists case is concerned. She saw her name appear in a certain current deal on the site. This is disconcerting because she is not a part of that particular business at all. What is even more appalling for her, is that the company continues to run that particular deal despite the fact that she has informed them about the error.
That deal has got indexed on Google and everyone who accessed the site can see that del with the picture of Kate the massage therapist on it. She has also been getting calls about the same and is very miffed about the entire situation, to say the least.
