Groupon Sales Rep Suspended for Alleged Threats about Bad Yelp Reviews
Playing the Yelp card is definitely bad form, and it makes you wonder (again) what percentage of user reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor are the result of grudge-settling.
Excerpt from AllThingsD
A Groupon spokesperson said on Sunday that the company was investigating whether one of its sales reps made a thinly-veiled threat to a restaurant owner to have his friends post bad reviews on Yelp and social media.
The investigation stems from a Facebook post by one of the owners of Sauce, a San Francisco restaurant, which included what the owner said was an email exchange between he and Johnston.
