Credit Card Double Charge

How the scam works:

Many stores still have credit card terminals printing the merchant copy listing the full credit card number on it. Beware of what can happen.

Let’s say you like a certain wine and buy it three times a week.

Scammers in this case are the cashiers, who are waiting for somebody who has a shopping habit of buying the same product regularly and pay by credit card. Once or twice a month, the teller will just punch in your credit card number and charge your card for the specific product, taking the equivalent in cash out of the till. They will only do this for small amounts of money.

When you look at your credit card statement you don’t see anything wrong, knowing that you go to that store and purchase that bottle of wine on a regular basis.

How to avoid:

Pay cash for these small amounts. The alternative is to always keep your till and credit card receipts, checking them together every month. If you’ve been scammed, you can then ask to speak to the store’s manager about it with the proof of the conflicting receipts.
