A California woman filmed her confrontation with a Starbucks drive-thru cashier while accusing her of copying her credit card information and using it to buy over $200 worth of groceries.

Elizabeth Becerra, a mother from Victoriaville, California, noticed a charge of $212 on her credit card that she did not authorize so she contacted authorities, she says in the beginning of a YouTube clip.

After filing a police report, Becerra says police were able to identify the details of the thief through security camera footage.

On Jan. 1, Becerra and her brother Brian Espinoza went to the Lakewood Starbucks location where the employee worked to confront the worker about the alleged theft. 

At the beginning of the video, Espinoza asks her what she is going to say to the cashier, and Becessa replies that they are going to "get even."

After pulling up to the window to retrieve her order, Becerra unleashes her speech on the unsuspecting employee.

“So we got you on camera yesterday at Ralph's for $212, so just know that the cops are coming up here," Becerra begins. "They recorded you’re a-- and everything. You took a copy of my f------ card the other day on New Year's Day. You know what you did."

The employee appears shocked at first and then begins to apologize.

“I’m so sorry ma’am,” she says before Becerra cuts her off.

“You took a copy of my f------ card here while you said were going to get receipt paper and they got your ass on f------ camera yesterday.”

The unidentified employee continues to apologize then says: "I'm sorry that I took money from you and your kids. I'm sorry that you had to come up here. I'm sorry that this is inconvenient for you."

“Are you sorry you’re about to lose your f------ job ‘cause  f------- corporate knows?” Becerra says angrily.

The employee appears to make one last attempt at apologizing.

"I am a good child. I swear I am really good. I really do go to school. I'm 19. I play soccer."

But when Becerra again accuses her making a copy, the employee says “I didn’t copy it. I took the numbers.”

The employee then begs Becerra not to press charges and says she will give her the money back immediately.

Becerra and Espinoza posted the video online Jan. 3 and it’s already racked up over 80,000 views on Facebook and YouTube. 

She issued a warning to other Starbucks customers, “This happened in Lakewood folks keep an eye on your cards.”

A spokeswoman for Starbucks confirmed to FoxNews.com that the employee seen in the video no longer works for the coffee chain and issued the following statement:

"We were extremely troubled to learn of this incident and are working directly with the customer to address this situation.  This experience is completely unacceptable, but is by no means indicative of the otherwise outstanding customer service that we provide our customers daily.  We value our customers’ trust and have internally taken immediate steps to address and respond to this issue."
