The person who owns the card got their payment, they realized that the store from which they bought their item had spent hundreds of dollars. The owner of the business is informed about these purchases but is unsure of what exactly has transpired and must investigate the situation, which could take days, and could result in negative feedback from the customers and possibly having their services taken away at the request of the credit card firm. In the end, this can cost thousands of dollars to business owners due to wasted time and potentially future profits.
