A woman is warning people to always check their grocery store receipts after a bizarre incident at the store.
After Taylor made a purchase at the grocery store, she noticed the total charge was a bit high. When she took a closer look, she was certain she was scammed.
Taylor used the Fetch app to scan her receipt when she saw a mysterious charge for $19.80. She knew she didn’t purchase anything that expensive, and the line item didn’t say what it was.
Fetch said it was a “universal unknown item.” This prompted her to talk to customer service. When they scanned the product number, all that came up was “n/a” or “not available.” The workers quickly gave her a refund, but no one knew what had happened.
“This is a warning to check your receipts,” Taylor said. “Because if it was $5 I wouldn’t have noticed. But scammers still get away with stuff like that.”
“It’s true I was a cashier this happened a lot the only time we realized it was when a customer pointed it out to us,” a user wrote.
“I always do self checkout whenever I can because I’ve had people charge me for multiple things,” someone added.
“Thank you for the PSA!! I’m going to start checking my receipts now,” a person commented.
“I check every receipts every time. So many times there’s been double charges or something,” another replied.
