The Melbourne mum shared her experience online, claiming that she’d been overcharged while purchasing a bottle of Fabulon Ironing aid.
Sharing a receipt to show that she’d been charged $6.50 at the checkout, the shopper said it was only when she returned to the aisle that she discovered that the price on the shelf was $1.81 less.
The Daily Mail went on to reveal that it was the third time in two weeks she’d been overcharged at supermarket.
Adding confusion to the drama, while the shelf price label lists the item as $4.79, it appears on the website at $6.50.
'That's 100 per of the time I have been overcharged for an item,' the woman posted.
'It took me 15 minutes and me walking back to check the actual price as the operator insisted it was scanning correctly. Then the manager argued with me.'
'Okay, first world problem here but I'm wondering if this systematic and deliberate.'
