Dozens of customers at a Del Taco restaurant in Santa Paula were mistakenly charged thousands of dollars for their fast-food tacos, drinks and other menu items.
One customer said he was charged $4,050 for one CrunchTada Pizza and two beef tacos, according to the Associated Press. The meal should have cost less than $5.

That’s only supposed to happen AFTER Obama raises th minimum wage to $15 per hour...
and now that you don't have to sign for anything under $50, so most people never look at the receipt
Let’s not forget Obamacare.
These days it makes more sense than ever to use cash.
I would have pointed out to the annoyed person the fact that the police could get involved and treat this as fraud.
Note that coins are not serialized, but could contain your fingerprints.
Math seems to be a challenge for today’s youth. Have you ever bought something when the cash register is down? Oy Vey...it takes forever for them to figure out the change, so be prepared for the wait and the discussion..lol
That’s why I try to make it a point to pay cash when dining out, but I will admit to slacking on that and swiping the debit card over the past couple of weeks.
Didn’t know that Dell did pizza.
Hey man, this is L.A. I’m just lucky the cashier speaks English..
I use a credit card, so Del Taco, or whoever, can try this crap on me - but first, it WILL NOT affect my checking account (like a debit would), and second, I make a point of seeing what I am charged, BEFORE I walk out.
Someone still has a credit limit over $4,000?
A chilling foretelling of things to come in Obamamerica.
Cash is almost dead.
Today, over three quarters of all transactions in the US are either via debit card, credit, or e-payment.
The government cannot track cash transactions. Cash allows tax avoidance on certain transactions. Cash is a primary spreader of bacteria and disease.
The drug trade would shut down almost overnight if cash were eliminated. The governments of the world could enact a global tax on every e-transaction.
For all of the reasons, cash is almost dead. The Antichrist will not have to enact the antichrist system when he emerges, it will already be in place.
Tracking you 24/7 when in public is but 10 years off, with the NSA storing ALL of the the info until the end of times.
I still prefer cash - it's faster and harder to track.
I always buy ammo with cash.
not sure if it’s even worth the $5.
Obama: “Under my administration the cost of tacos and pizza will necessarily skyrocket.”
Years ago I had all our accounts at Wells Fargo Bank. I got mad at them and went down and closed everything out. We had a CC with them with about a $4k balance. I sent a check in for that and told them to cancel it. About 2 wks later I got a phone call from their fraud division wanting to know why I had a $4k credit on their card. I told them to figure it out and hung up. Apparently some idiot had credited the account twice for the check I had sent in. Eventually they reversed it and cancelled the card. Lol
QE5 has arrived!
“..The government cannot track cash transactions..”
Exactly. When I go to gun shows I drive my 94 Chevy, leave my cell phone at home and pay cash. You don’t?
Well now they know...you will be followed because all conversations online are somewhere.
I feel like we are living in “Idiocracy” and Obama is President Not Sure.

In a lot of places these days, you can't even buy something with cash when the register is down. It's part and parcel of the accounting system, the inventory system, and the payroll system (who's at what register and when). And where would they put the money, and how would they make change (even if they know how). So it's a complete shutdown.
I saw this first hand in Santa Cruz in 2009 after fiber optic lines from San Jose were cut in an act of sabotage (probably Union).
President Elizondo Mountain Dew Comacho, maybe. The smartest guy in the world, no way.
We have bought things here when the system was down, this is not the big city.
Don't even think about ordering a "dozen" of anything when the counter person is a chirren....You'll get that glazed-over look in return.
They can try
Interesting, the digression from a decade ago instead of progression.
Just a little humor...
