Serial litigant Graham McCready is calling on customers affected by a botched Harvey Norman sale to file a private prosecution against the company.
Last week the company sold hundreds of furniture products at prices far lower than intended due to a "technical glitch".
The products were sold at the incorrect price for around eight hours before being corrected and the company has refused to honour the sales.
Customers have been offered a refund and $100 voucher, but Mr McCready insists the company must honour the original deal.
"We take the position that that's basically getting into the area of theft and fraud, it's totally unlawful," says Mr McCready.
He says customers who have been charged more than the advertised price should contact their bank and file a fraud complaint against Harvey Norman on the grounds that the transaction is in dispute and no goods have been delivered.
"The private prosecutor is prepared to act for customers in these circumstances to file a private prosecution against the CEO of Harvey Norman under the Crimes Act."
The botch-up was part of Harvey Norman's 'New Zealand's Biggest Retail Sale' campaign.
