10 Most Outrageous Credit Card Charges

10 Most Outrageous Credit Card ChargesHave you ever left a store or restaurant without looking at your receipt, only later to find a bogus charge? In most cases, the errors are innocent enough -- maybe the harried waitress at the local drive-thru accidentally tacked on an extra soft drink.

Even looking back at own our receipts, we sometimes can't recognize the products we purchased, and we'd never know that there was a glitch unless we were paying close attention.

But some receipts merit a double-take because of the sheer outrageousness of their totals, or the bizarre nature of the expense ($2 for a "farting charge?"). Those are the ones that have to be seen to be believed, like this collection of 10 outrageous cash register receipts that have gone viral on the web, courtesy of BuzzFeed. We can't say for sure who was hit with all these charges, but we know that somebody somewhere ponied up $50 for "nothing."

Check, please!

If some one is using my money for these outrageous purchases I am angry, what someone is doing with their money is not my concern. Obama, family friends, all those hangers on need to begone...before they spend more of our money, like 10,000,000.00 for vacation for herself and family friend. our money. Trugging around in the USA"s personal 747 executive aircraft for poiticing ...my money. This BS mus cease and desist.

@Mackisus - The bill came to $0.00 - so I'm guessing they were out to eat, saw a cockroach at the restaurant, freaked out, and got their meal for free. Good call on the restaurant's part. When I worked in retail, if there was ever a discrepancy like that, we had to list the reason why - I'm guessing the "reason why" was "eww! a cockroach!"

So what? He earned his money, what he spends it on is nobody's business. Remember your mother telling you to mind your own business? Well, mom was right!
