A Colombian bakery says it has sold Chinese food and now is “sorry” for selling a service that was allegedly part of a scam.
The bakery in La Plata, a city of about 100,000 people on the Atlantic coast, has sold the delivery service for $25 to $50.
The owner says he got in touch with authorities on Wednesday and they have agreed to take back the items.
“I told them we didn’t do it,” said Francisco Araneta.
“And they said, ‘OK, let’s talk to the owner.'”
Aranota says the business has been shut down and he has not received any money from the company.
“It’s a shame, because the customer who’s been paying for it has been a very loyal customer,” he said.
The company said it was in talks with the Colombian government.
The Associated Press is not naming the company because it has not been able to confirm the authenticity of the company’s business card.
