A restaurant in Thanh Hoa Province, north-central Vietnam has found a customer who mistakenly transferred VND270 million (US$11,140) for a VND270,000 ($11.1) meal to return the spare amount, the restaurateur said on Thursday.

Hoang Hiep, the owner of Lan Ngan Restaurant in Thanh Hoa City under the namesake province, had earlier asked for netizens’ and media agencies’ help to find the customer who made the error.

On Thursday afternoon, the customer, named H.T.T.T., 40, residing in Nghi Son Town, Thanh Hoa Province, contacted the restaurant after reading its notification on social media and in newspapers.

T. had returned to Vietnam after working in Taiwan and had lunch at Lan Ngan Restaurant on Friday last week.

When making the payment, she was not aware that she had transferred VND270 million to the restaurant’s account.

Her personal information and the money transfer time coincided with those of the customer transferring the money to the restaurant.

The restaurant also checked its CCTV footage to confirm that T. was the customer that it was seeking.

The restaurateur asked her to come to a local police station to receive the money on Friday morning.

Hiep said that many imposters had contacted his restaurant attempting to take the money.
