This  one came from a senior center member:

The latest scam is at the register.  After the order is rung up, some cashiers are adding some money to the bill, say, $20 or $30 to the bill.

The cashier is saying the credit card machine is broken, adding  extra  to the receipt as if you asked for a  cash sum added to the bill.

One shopper caught the cashier and asked for the supervisor.   The cashier was told to cancel the order and redo  the entire order.

Had the shopper left the  line before checking the receipt, it would have  been difficult to prove the machine wasn’t broken, as the cashier tried to say.  This goes for all stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, and the like.

There is always something new,  but if I  hear about it  I  will try to let you know.


Be safe,
