Misdirected Information Scenario #1

Suppose you are buying a condo and you know that at least one other party is bidding against you. While agonizing over your best strategy, you stop at a local Starbucks. As you sip your latte, you overhear a conversation at the table next to yours. Three people are talking loudly enough that it is difficult to ignore them, and you soon realize that they are the real estate agent and the couple who is competing for the condo you want. They are preparing their offer.

Misdirected Information Scenario #2

Consider the same situation from a different perspective – instead of overhearing the conversation, suppose you receive that same information in an email. Perhaps an administrative assistant at the agent’s office confuses you and the other customer and mistakenly sends you the terms of the other party’s offer.

Misdirected Information Scenario #3

Suppose that you sell computer software. In the midst of a sensitive price negotiation, your customer accidentally sends you an internal email that contains the maximum amount that the customer can pay for your software.

How Will You Handle Misdirected Information?

• Ethical and legal are not synonymous.

• Establish your personal policy about dealing with information that is misdirected to you.
