China's National Development and Reform Commission is kicking and screaming over Walmart's "deceptive prices".

According to the agency, the mega-retailer is either inflating the original price or overcharging consumers on discounted goods.

For example, a box of Nescafe coffee at a Nanning City location was marked down from $6.67 to $5.44, but come checkout time they charged $5.66.

The NDRC says they plan to "severely deal" with Walmart and may charge a fine of $76,000 for violating China's price laws.

Yeah, that'll show that multi-billion dollar company who's boss!
