Fast-food worker accused of overcharging customers

A Lincoln woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said she was the victim of a debit card scandal last Friday.

"It was ten dollars their employee stole from me," she said.

The woman ordered three meals at a local fast-food drive-thru, gave the worker her debit card, picked up the dinner from the window and drove away. A few days later, she checked her online bank account and realized something didn't add up.

I got up and dug through my recycle bin for five minutes and I found the receipt," she said. "And realized they had added a ten dollar gift card to my total."

We are not naming the restaurant because the employee has not been cited. But Lincoln police are looking into allegations of other customers who have also been charged for gift cards at that same location. In all cases, the employee kept them for herself.

The woman said the moral of the story is quite clear.

But that would be my warning to everybody is any time you use that debit card, look at the receipt," she said. "We don't know what they're adding."

According to the restaurant, they are refunding the $10. They also said it is a private matter and they are handling it accordingly. But for the woman, this still does not make it right.

"And I don't feel that's the ending," she said. "I don't feel happily ever after."

Lincoln police are continuing to investigate and they said they have not been able to contact the employee.
