An unfortunate mistake left a man unknowingly paying $1,383 more than what he was supposed to for his purchases at a minimart in Ang Mo Kio.
And since it was paid with a credit card, it was likely that he would have only noticed the expensive error sometime later after receiving his monthly statement.
What was fortunate though is that the management behind local convenience store chain Angel Supermart realised what happened and quickly went on social media to look for the customer.
What apparently transpired at the Angel Supermart outlet in Ang Mo Kio in the wee hours of Sunday (May 31) morning was that a cashier accidentally forgot to key in a decimal point in the purchase. So what was supposed to be a charge of $13.97 became an exorbitant $1,397 — quite a sky-high amount for what seemed to be a standard minimart run.
