Do you ALWAYS check your receipt before leaving the checkout counter? Well, you better start if you don’t.

The latest scam is being done right in front of you. The cashier will indicate that you want “cash Back” when totaling your purchases. Most often it will be in the amount of $20.00 or an amount near the total of all your purchases so as not to cause you to question the total.

It is done easily if you use a credit or debit card. One touch of a key and it goes right into the system immediately. If you don’t watch the moniter you will OK the transaction. Remember, most cash backs on credit or debit cards are subject for you to pay interest on the amount you receive or supposed to have received.

People are in such a hurry that they fail to look at their receipt before leaving the counter. Don’t be in such a hurry and let this happen to you.

Let the “buyer beware.”
