AN E'SDROP PUBLIC ANNOUCEMENT

CHECK YOUR RECEIPT!

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

THIS COULD HAPPEN ANYWHERE. CHECK YOUR RECEIPT
BEFORE LEAVING THE STAND. I'VE SEEN PEOPLE DO JUST THAT.  
PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS, KIDS, AND LOVE ONES.

It happened at Wal-Mart (Super center 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
were 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:  

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.

I am adding to this....My husband and I were in Wal-Mart North Salisbury and paying  
with a credit card.  When my husband went to sign the credit card signer, he just happened  
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 canceled it.  
We really didn't think anything of it until we read this email.

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

To make matters worse ...THIS SCAM CAN BE DONE ANYWHERE,  
AT ANY RETAIL OR WHOLESALE LOCATION!!!

BEFORE LEAVING THE CASHIER'S STATION!!!!!

THIS COULD HAPPEN ANYWHERE.    CHECK YOUR RECEIPT...............!!!!!!!!!!!!
BEFORE LEAVING THE STAND. I'VE SEEN PEOPLE DO JUST THAT.  
NOW I'LL START!
