Man charged £223,000 for six beers at his local off licence

3 posts in this topic

How often do you enter your Pin number without bothering to check how much you're being charged?

Whether you're cautious with cards or a chilled out chip-and-pin user, this tale might play on your mind when you make your next purchase.

A 28-year-old man got the shock of his life when he swung by his local boozer to pick up a few bottles of American craft beer.

In a freak accident, Kris Wines, a specialist off licence based in Islington, London, charged the North Londoner a fraction over £223,000 - the price of the average British home - for six bottles of beer.

The real price of the drinks was £22.30.

Unsurprisingly the customer, who works in market research, did not have enough funds in his account, so the payment was declined.
