"CASH BACK" - Beware - CHECK YOUR RECEIPTS
THIS IS an INTERESTING CASHIER SCAM, CAN YOU IMAGINE this one AT XMAS
WHEN EVERYONE IS IN A RUSH???
It happened at Wal-Mart (Supercenter Store #1279, 10411 N Freeway 45,
Houston, TX 77037 a month ago.. I bought a bunch of stuff, over $150, &
I glanced at my receipt as the cashier was handing me the bags. I saw a
cash-back of $40. I told her I didn't request a cash back & to
delete it. She said I'd have to take the $40 because she couldn't
delete it. I told her to call a supervisor. Supervisor came & said I'd
have to take the money. I said NO! Taking the $40 would be a cash advance
against my Discover & I wasn't paying interest on a cash advance!!!!!
If they couldn't delete it then they would have to delete the whole
So the supervisor had the cashier delete the whole order & re-scan
everything! The second time I looked at the electronic pad before I
signed & a cash-back of $20 popped up. At that point I told the cashier
& she deleted it. The total came out right. The cashier agreed that the
electronic pad must be defective. Obviously the cashier knew the
electronic pad was defective because she NEVER offered me the $40 at the
beginning. Can you imagine how many people went through before me & at
the end of her shift how much money she pocketed?
Now I hear from my co worker who had gone to another Wal-Mart
last week. She had her items rung up by another cashier. The cashier
hurried her along and didn't give her a receipt. She asked the cashier
for a receipt and the cashier was annoyed and gave it to her. My co
worker didn't look at her receipt until later that night. The receipt
showed that she asked for $20 cash back. SHE DID NOT ASK FOR CASH
BACK! No wonder the receipt was not proffered.
My co-worker called Wal-Mart who investigated but could not
see the cashier pocket the money. She then called her niece who works
for the bank and her niece told her this. This is a new scam going on.
The cashier will key in that you asked for cash back and then hand it to
her friend who is the next person in line.
***Please, please, please check your receipts right away when using
credit or debit cards!**
**This is NOT limited to Wal-Mart, although they are the largest
retailer so they have the most incidents*** It is EVERYWHERE.
***I am adding to this. My husband and I were in Wal-Mart North
Salisbury and paying with credit card when my husband went to sign the
credit card signer he just happen to notice there was a $20 cash back
added. He told the cashier that he did not ask nor want cash back and
she said this machine has been messing up and she cancelled it.
****We really didn't think anything of it until we**** ****read this
*I **wonder how many "seniors" have been, or will be, "stung" by this
*To make matters worse ...THIS SCAM CAN BE DONE
ANYWHERE, AT ANY RETAIL OR WHOLESALE LOCATION!!!
