An online food ordering scam has Orchard Park Police investigating a fake website.

Police were made aware of the scam when two customers used www.bringmethat.com to place an order at Cappellis Pizzeria on North Buffalo Street.

The two customers went to the restaurant to pick up their food and found that their order had not been placed.

The customers contacted their credit card companies and found that a service charge had been placed on their account, according to officials.

Police say other businesses are referenced on the site, including Ricotta's and Papacenos. According to police, none of these restaurants take orders online.

Police advice customers to avoid the website and to only place orders over the phone or directly at the location.

If you think you have been a victim of this scam, contact the Orchard Park Police Department at 662-6444, or your local police department if you live outside of Orchard Park.
