A woman’s weekly trip to the local subway in College Park, Georgia, turned into a financial fiasco when she was charged $7,112.98 for a sandwich.
When Vera Conner ordered her usual Italian sub number 4 on October 23, she expected it to cost a reasonable $7.54. But this time, her favorite salami, pepperoni and ham sandwich came with a tip of $7,105.44.
“When I looked at my receipt, I thought, Oh my God!” Conner told NBC News. “I thought this number looks familiar; it was the last six digits of my phone number. Who would leave a tip like that?”
Conner said that when he was entering his phone number to make sure he got his Subway loyalty points, the screen must have changed and converted the amount to a tip.
Conner had to call Subway, his bank, and even showed up at the Subway store in person to ask for help. The Subway manager told him the bank would have to process the chargeback.
