Starbucks Charged A Couple Over INR 3 Lakhs For 2 Coffees. Heres What Happened Next

The high prices of some top coffee shops have always been under question. While many people don’t find the beverages worth their price, a larger section of society is totally in love with it. However, an Oklahoma couple claimed that they were charged a lot more, for a regular coffee order, than usual. The couple ended up paying over $4,000 (Rs. 3,30,192 approx.) for just two cups of coffee at a local Starbucks drive-through. And, usually, their order comes out to around $10 (Rs. 825 approx.). 
According to a WSMV4 report, Jesse and Deedee O’Dell were hit with a bill of $4,456.27 (Rs. 3,67,847 approx.) on January 7. But, the couple was totally unaware of it. Days later, when Deedee was at the mall with her children and she tried to make a purchase using the same card, it was denied. Following this, the couple got to know that they were charged a hefty price for coffee by Starbucks for their coffee order.
