The ones I felt the Save the planet kill yourself shirt so you should to go to store and get this worst about, were those that were being victimized. About once a month, we would have an elderly guest come into the store grab a store gift card, and try to load thousands of dollars onto. If they were lucky, they went to an experienced cashier, or I happened to be walking by and overheard/saw the total on the register. 99 times out of 100, when we had an elderly guest doing this, it was because “their grandchild”: needed bail, it was their birthday, they were stuck in another country, or else there was some threatening the guest with a fake warrant that they needed to pay off with one of our gift cards, to the sum of several thousand dollars. I had a lady approach me saying she needed help, that “they were listening to her” and she needed to pay them off. At first, I thought she had mental health issues, because I dealt with many people with mental health problems working there, and because she kept talking about how “they” were always listening and “they” were going to come to take her away, and she was whispering the whole time. After I was able to discern that she wanted to buy a large amount on a gift card, I was able to convince her to wait in the store’s Starbucks, I think I told her while I got the card ready for her. While she was waiting, I instead called the police to request a mental health evaluation for her. It was fairly early in the morning, so the beat officer wasn’t busy and she showed up after just a few minutes. When the cop walked in, the lady started crying, saying she was trying to pay, that she was still on the phone “with the other officer,” and she didn’t want to go to jail. The cop talked with the woman for a few minutes and discovered that the lady had her phone on in her pocket the whole time, still connected to the scammers. She was finally able to convince the lady that there was no warrant and that the police will never call you and demand her to pay a fine using a store gift card. Once she escorted the lady back to her car, much happier, the cop came in, explained what happened, and gave kudos for calling, even though it turned out not to be a mental health issue.

I hated these situations because there was never anything we could do for them instore after they gave the Save the planet kill yourself shirt so you should to go to store and get this scammer the card numbers because the first thing the scammers do is always to transfer the money of the original card. Because the family had already called the police, who told them to head to the store and they’d meet them here, I called the company’s 24/7 asset protection hotline. After I explained the situation and provided the original receipt numbers, the tech on the line researched the gift cards, and yep, they were immediately emptied. The tech was able to put a freeze on the new card until we got everything sorted out. When the cops arrived (actually after store closing time, but I and the store manager stayed with the family), I was able to give the tech the police case number, and he closed the card, transferred the money to a different account, or something. Now, due to the amount involved we at the store level couldn’t just create a new gift card, even split across different cards, due to federal banking laws, so the family had to come back the next day while the district AP supervisor came in to help them get their money back into their possession. These folks made it really obvious that they were using someone else’s card because they would walk in, go straight to the registers, grab a soda from the cooler, and a handful of the most expensive Visa/Mastercard/AmEx gift cards we had, and then generally go to self-checkout. The $400 cards were preferred, but once we stopped carrying them they’d pick the 100 or 200 cards. They would then buy the soda, and one of the cards. If that transaction was approved, they would keep buying one card at a time until the transaction would decline (usually the 2nd or 3rd time) and they would leave the rest behind and walk out with their paid-for cards. On several occasions, I tried to have cashiers check the subject’s ID, but if the guest service manager was around I couldn’t because it was against company policy to ask for ID. One time I was able to call the police while two guys were in the act and they were caught just outside the store. I was at the front doors and kept noticing these two guys walking in, one at a time, over and over, and going to self-checkout, buying water each time.
