The Consumerist is always packed full of good information that you can get quickly. Kind of like a fast food meal at Burger King? Well, read this post and be reminded to always check your receipts. Here is a small taste of this excellent post:
Guadalupe Pequino of Fountain Inn, South Carolina bought $8.64 worth of food from Burger King with her Visa Check Card. Unfortunately for Guadalupe, the cashier typed in $8,648.54 as her total and the amount was debited from her account.
Oops. Bottom line – be careful as most all of us use our debit and credit cards for most transactions. Errors like this can be fixed if we catch them but better to catch them the moment they happen – not when checks start bouncing….
