Oct 10 - McDonald’s Is Not Paying $1 Million Dollars For A Typo

TORONTO - Smiles may be free at McDonald's, but the only place where Ryan Doon would be grinning is in the courtroom.

The 27-year-old IBM consultant said he still feels duped by the multi-billion dollar fast food chain after it wouldn't compensate him for pointing out a typo on its Monopoly official rules.

"If I found some kind of firm that was willing to try and pursue this pro-bono, I would do that," Doon said Friday. "I'm hoping that as this continues to get out there that McDonald's wants to resolve this in a friendly manner instead."

Doon found a "Park Place" game sticker in a McDonald's meal and thought he won the $1-million jackpot when he checked out the rules online, which stated "Park Place" was all that was needed to win.

But McDonald's Canada said that was a typo and players require both "Park Place" and "Boardwalk" game pieces to win the grand prize.

Other people are backing Doon if he decides to launch a lawsuit after they too peeled "Park Place" stickers and thought they had struck it rich.

"My daughter told me I had won (on Tuesday night) so I checked on the website and called McDonald's but no one ever called back," said Tony Di Salvo, a 40-year-old unemployed dad in Maple, Ont. "I'm happy that someone is actually doing something. You feel cheated by big corporations and we need to make them accountable for what they do."

Bob Ash, who manages a sign business in Newmarket, Ont., said he would also back Doon in the legal suit.

"Add me to the list. I hope you will get some mileage out of this," he said. "Great big corps standing behind their employees or sub-contractors and saying ... 'Oops, you didn't win, thanks for the money anyway, loser.'"

McDonald's Canada said only one of its six contest websites had the typo, which was corrected by Thursday afternoon.

"At this point in time, we don't have anything to share beyond the information that was provided in our statement," McDonald's spokesman Louis Payette said Friday.

“If I found some kind of firm that was willing to try and pursue this pro-bono, I would do that. I’m hoping that as this continues to get out there that McDonald’s wants to resolve this in a friendly manner instead,” says Ryan Doon.

McDonald’s has said that one of its six contest websites had the typo which has since been fixed, but that’s about it...so good luck with that man.

Case law protects businesses against typos. Not to mention the fact that McDonalds probably put a clause in that allows them to refrain from paying for whatever reason. The guy doesn't have much of a case. And obviously McDonalds doesn't want to pay this one guy anything b/c surely there are hundreds if not tens of thousands of people who found that one sticker.
