Coupon website 'offered deals without approval'

An online group coupon website has been accused by at least four merchants of offering discounts for their businesses without their knowledge.

The House of Seafood, Three Wombats Cafe and Suan Thai restaurants, as well as tour agency Singa Travel, all said that they have no dealings with dealon.com.sg, although their "offers" were found on the website up till Saturday.

Mr Rick Poh, operations manager at Serves U Right F&B Consulting, which manages Three Wombats Cafe, said he was alerted to this when a customer attempted to redeem a voucher purchased from the website.

"We have told customers to stop using the website and alerted some of the other merchants advertised," he said.
