BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman says her bank account was wiped out after a clerk mistakenly charged her $2,600 for a $30 pizza.

Katie Boucher (boo-SHAY') told WFSB-TV that the overcharge occurred last week at Amano's Pizza in Bristol when a the clerk hit the wrong button and quickly voided the transaction to her debit card.

But Boucher said her bank told her it would take up to 10 days before the $2,600 was refunded.

Boucher said she went to the owner Von Manolitsis and had him sign some forms that helped the bank refund the money in just 4 days.

But Boucher said she racked up $230 in overdraft and late fees for due bills.

Boucher says Manolitsis offered to pay her back in pizza.

Manolitsis says he is now the only one who rings up credit cards.
