Walmart Cashiers Taking Cash Bonus' From YOU!!!!

This was actually passed on to me by my moms.....imagine Walmart cashiers doing this....OMG, I can't.




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 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. 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?

Just to alert everyone. My co worker 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 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! 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

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 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!!

Snoped says it's false, but it never hurts to pay attention.

Definitely something to keep an eye on.
Anytime i have shopped at Walmart,
I have always completed the transaction myself using the pin pad (or whatever it is). Cashier doesn't do anything except scan the items.

Why would you not watch the screen as the cashier rings you up?

My wife works at a Wal-Mart, (not a cashier) and she says to watch the drawer. If it has been keyed in that you will get cash back, the drawer will automatically open when the cashier hits the total button, if there is no cash back, the drawer will not open at all. Most of all, check the receipt! Every time!!!!!!

Personally I don't use credit cards. Good old cold hard American cash works just fine for me! But I still check the receipt to see that it is in order.

And yes I can see cashiers anywhere doing this! I don't trust anyone when It comes to $$$$$$$$$$$$, give them the chance or opportunity and they will take it!

My wife & I were out with some friends. Waiting for the bartender, I overheard the girls talking, be careful, they pull that scam on us. Ever wonder how your wife manages to spend $375 a week at Wegman's?? Apparently, after listening to the chat while waiting for a round, that scam pays for one's botox

To prevent this i joined a few others that deal only with CIF which is CASH IN FIST. Going to Store take XXXX amount, you know how much you have and should have an idea of what the cost is of items purchasing ,less than what you have fine , cost more than you have available, well get item next trip.

This is an urban legend as old as the internet. The guy who signed it doesnt even exist.
