Website Glitch Costs Travelocity.com $182,750

Following unnoticed "technical failures" on travelocity.com, which unintentionally enabled Americans to book trips to Cuba, the company was required to pay $182,750 to settle a complaint brought by the U.S Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control. As a result of the transactions, the fine was set for booking trips between the U.S. and Cuba in violation of a 45-year-old embargo. Travel service providers are suppose to obtain an OFAC license to approve trips to and from Cuba for trips relating to academic, religious and journalistic activities to humanitarian projects and visits to immediate family. After all this, Travelocity still refuses to apply for an OFAC license. via The Raw Feed
