Last night Pim Techamuanvivit discovered that Grubhub, Seamless and Yelp delivery services have fake listings for her San Francisco restaurant, Kin Khao, to accept food orders on their sites. Her restaurant does not fulfill the food for these orders. And DoorDash has a fake listing for her other restaurant, Nari.

She tells her story on twitter.

Tara Duggan of SF Chronicle is covering the tale.
