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.  (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!

with the
—– most successful economic system in world history… stand and talk
—– about business when he’s never worked for one?… or about jobs
when he
—– has never really had one??! And neither has 92% of his senior
staff and
—– closest advisers! They’ve spent most of their time in academia,
—– government and/or non-profit jobs… or as “community organizers”
when
—– they should have been in an employment line.
