DM police investigate tip scam at IHOP

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- An Iowa restaurant server may be in trouble for changing tips from customers.

Des Moines police are investigating a scam at a local IHOP restaurant where someone allegedly altered customer credit card receipts to charge a bigger tip.

The restaurant's manager call police this week after two customers had complained about being overcharged. The same server was involved in both cases.

Police say the manager went through receipts for December and early January and identified suspected changes in tips on at least 36 receipts. The changes total more than $300.

The restaurant is offering gift cards to customers who had their receipts altered.
