Our host wrote earlier of the row over a WTC hotdog vendor accused of fleecing unsuspecting tourists by charging up to thirty dollars per hot dog. Now, the vendor has been terminated by his employer.
It is believed he took advantage of foreign tourists unfamiliar with the exchange rates of U.S. currency by failing to post actual prices then naming a price that was up to ten times the actual market rate.
Pariah Hot Dog Vendor Ahmed Mohammed also is accused by his boss Abdelalim Abdelbaky of pocketing the extra money and proffering he sold the dogs for two dollars each. Reportedly, Abdelbaky’s family will assume the hundreds of dollars in fines the city levied against Mohammed for failing to post his prices–in violation of municipal code.
After WNBC broadcast its investigation, the city served Mohammed with three citations and Abdelbaky fired him.
Tourists and Hot Dog connoisseurs can now relish in justice being served.
