Someone tried to charge $2,300 at Payless shoe store in Topeka KS

Are you sure the transaction went through?

I've been wondering how anyone could rack up $2300 at payless shoes.

I'm thinking maybe it's a typo.

What if it was really $23.00 and mistakenly put in as $2300.

We have an old cc transaction machine. We have to manually put in the number. I've put the number in wrong. I usually catch it before the transaction submits and reinter, but a couple of times over the years it's gone through.

It's always been found before the customer leave and the transaction is reversed.

I don't know if the customer got a possible fraud notice or not.

I hope you get this cleared up.
