 there was a scam that happend at walmart in Houston TX..A friend emailed my hubby that when he was checking out he purchased a bunch of stuff over 160$ and he checked his reciept before leaving and it said he got 40$ back but he never did or recieved it so he complaind and told th chashier that he never wanted cash back and the cashier told him to just take the 40 cuz she couldnt delete the order..the supervisor came over and said if we were to delete it that would be rescaning every item..which was done and when he went to the pin pad it asked if he wanted 20 back he told the cashier to say no!! so everything was fine..one of his co workers had this happen to her but she called her sister at the bank and said its a new type of scam people are doing the cashier will key in that you asked for cash back when you really didnt and her/his friend will be the next person in line and they will take the cash that was taken from your purchase..

So just check your reciept before leaving the store and if you didnt get cash back go back inside..its not jsut happing at walmart..even though they are a big store and alot of incidents happen there...CHECK YOUR RECIEPTS!!!!!!

Sorry its there were typos im really tired but wanted to tell you ladies about my email my hubby got today ITS FAKE APPARENTLY..

From what I know you have to ask for cash back on the atm machine and then press ok for the total amount. But anyways I always double check.

 Thank you!  I always check and then recheck my receipt but I know SO many people who just chuck it right after they walk out the store.
