A pizza restaurant in California, United States, lost over $700 (around P36,000) worth of pizzas after falling victim to a prank call recently.

The restaurant received a call from a man who identified himself as Will last Thursday, Aug. 1, as per ABC-affiliate KRCR News on Saturday, Aug. 4.

Michael Braga, manager of Mary’s Pizza Shack, said the man ordered a total of 24 pizzas. Will claimed the large order was for a work-related event.


When asked for his credit card information, Will said his boss would pay upon pick up of the order. The restaurant never received a call about the payment details.


Despite having no confirmation regarding payment, the employees already prepared the food. As per report, they pushed through with the order because an order of that size would take about an hour to complete.

Will eventually called back and said his boss would contact the restaurant about the order’s payment details.

The restaurant never received the supposed follow-up call regarding payment, the report stated. They tried to contact Will again by calling him multiple times with different numbers but to no avail.

Braga said the order had cost $701 (around P36,000) and some change. Ryan Arcadio/JB
