A Woolworths customer has warned other shoppers to be wary after discovering repeated errors on her supermarket receipts.
Sharing on Facebook, shopper Noreen claimed she has been overcharged for the same item four times in as many months.
Posting a photo of the receipt showing the most receipt error, Noreen said she was frustrated to see that a carton of eggs had accidentally been scanned twice.
“Fourth time since November that I have been overcharged,” said Noreen.
“Who knows how many other times, as I only started checking after a double scan of $15 in November.
“If it’s the machines, fix it. If it’s the operators, train them.”
Speaking to 7NEWS.com.au, Noreen said she was planning to use the self-serve checkout moving forward.
“When I first noticed when I returned to store customer service person said it can’t be helped the machines are sensitive,” she said.
“I wasn’t happy about that, I can use the [self-serve] checkout without double scanning.
“Last time I’ll go thru manned checkout. Too many mistakes.”
A Woolworths representative said that the supermarket was investigating the issue and thanked Noreen for bringing it to its attention. .
“We’re disappointed to hear of your experience in-store,” the representative said.
This isn’t the first time a supermarket shopper has reported scanning errors at checkouts.
Several ALDI shoppers have made similar claims on Facebook in recent months, urging customers to check their receipts before leaving stores.
