Former OpenTable worker in trouble for bogus reservations scheme


Recommended Posts

Douche cannon in action


The Chicago Sun-Times reports that prosecutors allege in charging documents that 30-year-old Steven Addison booked more than 300 reservations at at least 45 Chicago restaurants using Reserve, aiming to hurt the company's reputation.

They say Addison, of Chicago, allegedly booked some 1,200 seats in all, often during peak hours, making the no-shows especially costly.

Christa Quarles, the CEO of San Francisco-based OpenTable, said in March that one "rogue employee" was involved in the "unsanctioned" actions and had been fired. The company apologized and said it would reimburse restaurants for lost revenue.
