A man who visited a Pennsylvania Walmart almost got scammed. He made some purchases, then he checked his receipt and discovered something fishy was going on.
many people who make purchases with debit cards ask for money back, some don't.
According to shopper Jesse Hampton, he looked at the receipt as he was leaving the checkout, he says
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.
This happened over and over again for the man without his asking. Mr Hampton posted this story.
This scam could happen anywhere so protect yourself, always double check your receipts before leaving the register, let alone the store.
