Dec. 10 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles man said a problem with Burger King's penny Whopper deal led to his being charged more than $1,000.

Boyce Harvey said he attempted to take advantage of the deal, which allows customers using the Burger King app to order a Whopper for only 1 cent if the order is placed from within 600 feet of at McDonald's, but the manager at Burger King told him the order wasn't showing up in the system.


Harvey said he ended up making another purchase, but when he left he discovered he had been charged $1,093.91.

He said his account did not have enough funds, leading to a huge overdraft.

Burger King said officials are working with Harvey to figure out what happened and correct the error.
