scammed
« on: 28 November 2015, 20:25:19 »

SWMBO works at ASDA and is generally behind the lottery/cigarette kiosk. Today someone came and asked for cigarettes that came to around 400, paid for them by card. And then he decided that he also needed/wanted another 600 worth, the transaction also went thru OK - presumably on another card. He then asked for more, for which SWMBO said that she needed authorisation for ...... ASDA would be running out of ciggs themselves. As soon as a supervisor was mentioned he was packed up & disappeared.

As the more savvy amongst us has probably already guessed  ::) the cards he used were cloned. So ASDA/the banks are out of pocket today to the tune of 1000

After being on this desk/kiosk for the past couple of months, the management have finally told her that the limit for ciggy sales is 400 per person.

Will their cctv be of any help with identification,possibly if they have them on the car park them perhaps the reg number of a car used or a direction taken?Typical of some management to tell you the rules after the fact and not before.

Yes, they have an image of Mr Patel/Ahmed on their CCTV ....... the same bloke that  did the same thing at another ASDA store that's spitting distance away. If only different store's security spoke to other local stores
