The promotion asks customers to head to McDonald’s and open up their Burger King app to order a Whopper sandwich for only a penny. When Los Angeles resident Boyce Harvey was within proximity of the McDonald’s, he took out his phone and activated the deal.
However, when Harvey went to pick up his hamburger at Burger King, the manager said they could not find his order. While inside the fast food chain, Harvey selected another deal, got his food and left.
After Harvey left the restaurant, he noticed the outrageous $1,093.91 charge to his account, 6 ABC reported.

Harvey told 6 ABC that there is now an overdraft on his account, and that he is working with Burger King to sort it out.
In a statement to Fox News, Burger King confirmed the incident, but said it was an isolated event.
