Mistakenly Overcharged Customer Receives Check In Mail For $1.40 From Lakewood Business

check_from_kk[PHOTO] A local resident unknowingly overcharged $1.40 at a local shop, learned about it after he received a check in the mail for that amount, along with an apology letter. “Due to an accounting error in calculating your grand opening discount, you were mistakenly overcharged”, the letter read. “Please accept our apologies and enclosed is a check for the amount overcharged”.

The resident tells TLS he made about a $150 order at the store, but says was extremely impressed with the store’s honesty.

“It’s nice to see such honesty and good business ethics, even for such a small amount of money”, says the customer. TLS-MPIP2.

  1. This should not be a chidush. This is what it means to be a G-d fearing Jew who doesn’t want to come back after 120 to pay back $1.40….

  2. Why is everybody so negative?? It would be great if this could be said about every business, sadly thats not the case and therefore this is a great story!!!!

  3. honesty is the best policy. halevai everyone should be as honest-in everything- as this business & destroy the corruption that goes on & bring an end to destruction for CORRUPTION BRINGS A PERSON TO DESTRUCTION

  4. Just to contrast: I bought something at a store and I had a coupon. The cashier looked at the coupon and gave us the discount. A half hour later I get a call from the store owner. She says please come back and give us more money, as the clerk was not supposed to give the discount. Of course I went back, but I was fuming!

  5. If I overcharge by cents I call the customer to let him know. If we undercharge I do not call. It seems like the correct thing to do!

  6. The newsworthiness of this story is that often people sometimes don’t fathom, (or do not dream) the lengths an ehrliche business goes to to ensure that no customer is overcharged or mischarged. They use cameras, reports and frequent checks to ensure that their revnue is kosher, not only their product!

  7. I had a credit at clothing store in town. As I cleaned out my pockets I mistankely threw out credit receipt. I was a good customer yet the store refused to honor my word. What is wrong with people? It took many years for me to walk back in there
