Moral money dilemma No2

Should Alan give the laptop back?


Alan went into a shop to buy a laptop, and instead of it ringing up at £399 it was just £3.99. He spotted this at the check-out and was aware of the error but keep schtum. After he'd paid, the manager came up and admited, that the laptop was legally his, but it was an obvious error by a trainee cashier on his first day.

Baby

Did the cashier type the price into the till or was it scanned?

Was it a chain store or a little private shop?

Was he alone or was his wife with him

The cashier typed it in, it was part of a small chain of stores and he is single

On the presented facts, Alan does not hold title to the laptop.
