If anything letting the hoax continue would help the restaurant.
More angry people would go to the restaurant and eat just to tip to make up for the lack of a good tip.
Coming forth and saying this is a hoax at the very least does nothing for the restaurant and might cost them the extra customers they would have won
As for the receipts it's easy to print a false receipt and put any price on there you want.
From my time bartending the first receipt is only to validate the charges, someone than needs to enter the receipt and the charges again or scan the
receipt and insert the final values.
All you need to do is make a place holding receipt put any values you want and than void the transaction.
Your card isn't "charged" when you give it to them it's charged later that day/night when they re-enter the receipt.
