    Pay attention to receipts when leaving any cashier station.

    There have been a couple of incidents where it showed Cash Back was issued on the receipt but the customer never wanted cash back.

    The cashier may notice this but play dumb and pocket the money.

    This was story I read

    Reshare this latest scam...

    PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR RECEIPTS - THIS IS IMPORTANT

    CHECK YOUR RECEIPTS BEFORE LEAVING ANY CASHIER'S STATION!!!!!

    THIS COULD HAPPEN ANYWHERE.

    It happened at Wal-Mart a month ago (Supercenter Store #1279, 10411 N Freeway 45, Houston , TX 77037).

    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 it! 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 order.

    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. (yeah, right!)

    Obviously the cashier knew the electronic pad wasn't 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?

    Just to alert everyone. My coworker went to Milford , DE Wal-Mart last week.
    She had her items rung up by the 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 coworker 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!

    My coworker 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 is a new scam. 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.

    I wonder how many "seniors" have been, or will be, "stung" by this one????

    THIS SCAM CAN BE DONE ANYWHERE, AT ANY RETAIL OR WHOLESALE LOCATION!!!

    BEFORE LEAVING THE CASHIER'S STATION!!!!! CHECK YOUR RECEIPT BEFORE LEAVING THE STAND.

    I've heard there are now devices that can scan your creditcard from a distance away, but I haven't looked into it. Anybody heard about this?

    That's fucked up, they should make you have to sign twice if you want cash back, that way you know if you are asked to sign twice that you didn't request it.

    Yeah, I heard about this, those people who sell aluminum credit card cases talk about it, but I don't know how real or common it is.

    Hell yes! I'm gonna burn my drivers License and social security card and have my fingertips removed... Aside from the overt Satanic implications, it's pretty sick and perverted that a school would want to keep track of the students....:pedo:

    I have a buddy who sends every fucking thing he reads along like it's gospel. Of course, we're old but that shouldn't make you a dumb ass.

    just have them run it as credit if you're not getting cash back.
