Did I unwittingly help someone launder money?

Several months ago, I purchased some furniture from a furniture store for my parents. It was a very stressful time for all of us as we were in the process of moving them into an assisted living facility. I wasn't paying attention to details like I should have. I paid for the furniture myself and took a picture of the receipt in case they ever got into a position to repay me.

Now that I've looked at the receipt, it looks really weird.

All of the items are listed properly with the correct amounts but then is says:

Payments received on sale:
Cash 157,696.11-
Visa/MC 159,289.00

Total payments 1,592.89

I didn't notice at the time. The Visa slip that I signed was for the correct amount.

Is there anyway that this isn't some kind of illegal activity?
