Del Taco customer mistakenly charged $4,050 for 2 tacos and pizza


Dozens of customers at a Del Taco restaurant in Santa Paula were mistakenly charged thousands of dollars for their fast-food tacos, drinks and other menu items.

One customer said he was charged $4,050 for one CrunchTada Pizza and two beef tacos, according to the Associated Press. The meal should have cost less than $5.

Michael Cole said he noticed the overcharge when he could not draw cash Friday from an ATM.


A Del Taco spokesman told the Ventura County Star that the glitch involved computers dealing with credit card and ATM transactions at the store and that all charges would be refunded.

Officials said they believed about 150 customers were affected.
