Mama claims that she was charged too much ‘100 percent of the time’ while using the self-check at Coles and gives a grim warning to other customers
- The mother of Melbourne claims that she was overcharged at Coles self-service cash registers
- Says that the price tag on the shelf was almost $ 2 cheaper than what the item had scanned
- She claimed it was the third time in two weeks that she had paid too much in Coles
A mother in Melbourne claiming to have been scammed by Coles has warned other shoppers who use self-service checks from supermarkets to check their earnings.
The woman expressed her indignation online after she was overloaded on Saturday for a bottle of Fabulon ironing aid at Coles on the outskirts of St. Kilda.
When paying $ 6.50, she returned to the aisle after paying for the items to double check the product price on the shelf and found it was $ 1.81 cheaper.

The customer said she had been more vigilant in checking her receipts following a recent warning she had read about overcharging for gas.
She said Saturday’s trip to the supermarket was the third time in two weeks that she had overpaid in Coles.
“That’s 100 each time I’ve paid too much for an item,” the woman added.

“It took me 15 minutes and I walked back to check the actual price, because the operator insisted it scanned correctly. Then the manager argued with me. ”
“Okay, first world problem here, but I wonder if this is systematic and well-considered.”
While the price tag on the store clearly indicates $ 4.79, the product is online for $ 6.50 at both Coles and Woolworths.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted the woman and Coles for further comments.
