Priceline.com had concert pianist Ronnie Segev thrown in jail on charges of harrassment after the upset customer called the company 215 times in an attempt to secure a refund for a $953 airline ticket he had never purchased. From The Post:
A judge later dismissed the charges, but not before Segev spent 40 hours in a Manhattan holding cell with hardened criminals who laughed at him, threatened him and tried to steal his fancy watch and sneakers.
A tough-looking cellmate asked him, “So, what are you in for?”
“Priceline refund,” the musician sheepishly replied. It went downhill from there.
Segev has still not recieved a refund, but has filed a malicious prosecution suit against Priceline. (Thanks, Com!)
