Los Angeles resident Boyce Harvey got the exact opposite of what he was expecting when he went to Burger King hoping to capitalize on the restaurant's online one-cent Whopper deal.

According to UPI, customers who bought their Whopper via the Burger King app within 600 feet of a McDonald's would be charged only $0.01 for the sandwich.

When Harvey arrived at the counter to pick up his food, however, he found that was not the case.



As he made it to the counter, the Burger King's manager told Harvey their system was not showing his order. Slightly disappointed, but hungry more than anything, he decided to order something else instead, paying with a card without worrying about the price.


It was only after Harvey had already paid that he glanced at his receipt and saw something shocking: He had been charged $1,093.91 for the meal.


Man charged for more than $1,000 for penny Whopper deal youtu.be

Harvey didn't have enough funds in his account to cover the massive charge, which resulted in an overdraft fee.


Burger King is now working with Harvey to make sure the issue gets straightened out. No burger is worth over $1,000.


People on social media are just glad this isn't happening to them!

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
