    Coffee fan in hot water for alleged bar code scam

    A man is facing charges for allegedly tampering with a bar code to buy a $700 coffee machine for $30.

    Police allege they searched premises at West Beach in Adelaide where the Victorian man was staying and found other items also bought after bar codes had been altered, including televisions and other kitchen appliances.

    The man is charged with 17 counts of dishonest interference with property.

        The actual price was $712 I believe which puts it out of 6910 territory. It was probably a fully automatic Krups in which case simultaneously is fortunate he got caught for his own sake and stupid for paying $30 for something thats not worth half that! ;D

          Actually at $30 bucks he paid too much for a Krups - they ought to have arrested the store for overcharging. . .

            If it was a Krups he can at least plead insanity!

                It was a gaggia semi auto thing from big W.

                He wasnt a coffee fan so the media got it wrong. He has been swapping barcodes on lots of things as the police found a whole heap of stuff when they got to his home.

                Apparently he has also done it in Victoria and NSW.

                  And not very smart either - a smart crim would have swapped a $600 barcode for a $400 bar code.

                    The only way he got caught was because another customer told the checkout person the price was wrong... it worries me that check out people do not know the price of some of those high items. This guy even had a widescreen television and other high priced goods worth thousands.
