Liam also offered to buy with his credit anyone "in need of a good meal and feeling pinched."

What to do if you believe you have been overcharged

If you purchase something and check your bank account and notice that the amount is different, you may be entitled to a refund.

In some cases the refund will be automatic, but in other cases you will need to contact the platform you purchased it from.

In this case Liam had to go through Just Eat instead of Greggs as Just Eat received the payment.

If that doesn't help, you can also contact your bank or try the Citizens Advice consumer helpline.
