Hey guys, I’m back again with a food article regarding global pizza chain, Domino’s.
A Newport teenager bought a £17.99 takeaway from Domino’s pizza – but the company had taken a massive £179,932.32 from his personal bank account.
19 year old Nathaniel Bolwell, 19, paid with his Lloyds Bank credit card for a large plain pizza from the Domino’s store on Chepstow Road, Newport.
But he was stunned when his account plunged £179,020.80 into the red.
A spokeswoman for Domino’s said the payment was authorised by the bank, which paid the money back two days later, plus a£100 compensation refund.
Mr Bolwell, who is a packer for a local health food company, said: “I could not believe my eyes. How did Lloyd’s bank allow Domino’s to take all that money?
“Not even the poshest meal in the poshest 5 star restaurant would cost anything like that even if I took all my friends and family out.”
A spokeswoman for the company said: “This was immediately flagged by our merchant providers due to the amount and a reversal of funds was put in place to Mr Bolwell.
Nathaniel Bolwell was told pizza staff at the store were given a bank card authorisation code of 3232 when he paid for his pizza but that was ‘accidentally’ added to the price of his order when the payment went through in two lots of a massive £90,000 and £89,932, which amounted to the price of £179,932.32.
