    This especially if he signed the invoice - the OP did say he works for a supplier. There all invoices are signed which to me that says the client agreed to the amount of the invoice and short payment can be shown very easily.

    It would be then that I would call the manager over and loudly complain about it.

    I always check my slip, and I always check what the cashier/waiter/etc is punching into the machine...

    lol. Leaving a string of transactions behind you that are technically not valid doesn't sound like a good plan though...

    Hardly ever check - I sometimes go to the garage and, fill up with petrol, sign the slip, and when I get home have no idea how much I signed for - could have been 1000's

    If you've entered your pin, there is no need for a signature.

    Actually, its better to sign, should your card be cloned etc, you have a better case with slips that show its not your signature. Although no-one checks signatures anyway. Our machine still requests a signature( I never check) but i guess should there ever be a dispute, it comes in handy having the signed slip!

    ye.. you are not a retailer. So just take the money off his account so he as a negative balance.

    There is no legitimate way he can claim to be in the right. Unless you actually invoiced him for the lower amount he must pay the full price.

    I actually wanted to check my slip the other day. Paid R500 for a full trolly at Woolworths... to me that can't be right. Should have been closer to a grand.

    If you buy multiple items of certain products, you get discount. In fact, I must get me some of their fresh soups; R19-99 a pack but R30 for two.

    And yes, especially at Woolworths, I tend to overestimate the total; purchases frequently comes out much less than what I expected.

    Sadly, his company is a COD concern so I have to wait until he comes in again (he may not now though, due to the fact that he knows he owes ME 300 bucks. Although some people can be very thick skinned. He can also try bypass me by asking for delivery but the sales team know whats happened and our driver will be conveniently unavailable to deliver for the next 12 months.

    I never check. Funny enough I keep all of my receipts. I hoard them basically. Yet I never look at them to double check.

    One time I accompanied some friends grocery shopping. After all the items are rung up, my friend finds he's short R300 in his hand. So I offer to swipe that R300. Then he pays the cash he has. After he hands over his cash the machine is still showing R300 short! So we look to another friend who happens to have R300 in his wallet. Now the thing is sorted and we start to leave. Meanwhile, people behind us are very angry at this delay . Now I have a funny feeling in my stomach because none of this makes any damn sense and I start calculating in my head. We just all have a tendency to trust the screen at the till but really the machine is only as good as the human operating it. Apparently what happened is when I swiped at first that R300 never decreased from the total on the screen and we didn't notice or question it because of that trust. After approaching the manager we got our refund and the lady got her ass chewed out. Well....okay looking back at the one I have to say we were just having a blonde moment.

    Also one time I was entering my pin and I noticed the number on screen was a hundred dollars off. Considering I had things worth R20 in my plastic I was very confused but the nice lady said sorry and fixed it.

    By not paying the full amount he is breaking the law. Just inform him that he hasn't paid the full amount and request that he make payment to settle his account. If he doesn't pay, you can report him. As far as I know this will show on his credit report. Threaten him with debt collection agency and blacklisting.
