New Vendor at “Rip-Off” Hot Dog Cart Also Gouging Tourists

The new vendor who took over the hot dog cart busted for its outrageous $30-per-frank prices apparently has no idea it's still under scrutiny by both the public and the city because he was captured on camera Thursday dishing out variable prices just like his predecessor, NBC4 New York reported. Ahmed Mohammed was fired last month after an I-Team report revealed he was overcharging visitors and tourists near ground zero. The city ordered owner Abdelalim Abdelbaky to post the prices, but Abdelbaky's new employee, Ayman Ahmed, had no prices in sight Thursday. He was also charging different prices to different customers. "Three dollars, $4, $5 for tourists," he said.
