Scam? - 07/25/09 11:13 AM

My youngest called this week to share that he was looking at his online banking and noticed an error. He'd used his gift card at Trader Joe's and paid the balance with his debit card. When he checked his account, he realized they charged him for the full amount. I told him to call the store and report it.

I don't know if htis is the case, but I've heard that cashiers do this. Then they take the amount of the gift card out of the register in cash so it all balances out.

Save your receipts and always match them to your bills.
