My debit cards were stolen by some teens and used at walmart to purchase almost $800 worth of merchandise. The teens used the self checkout line at 3am, swiped my card as a credit to avoid needing a pin#, and no ID was needed or asked for.
Watching the tape, At one point a cashier helped the boy checkout the TV!! HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? the self checkout, though meant to help expedite your shopping trip, enables thieves in their mission to clear out your bank accounts! Is there no limit on how much you can purchase in a single swipe on a credit card in that lane?
Especially at 3am! I am very pissed that such a Corporate Giant such as Walmart can let this happen! All they have to do is have the kiosk notify the cashier of a credit purchase over $X to come over and check ID!
If that had been done, i wouldnt been missing my hard earned money! It would have been obvious to anyone that the 17 yr olds using my card were no a 30 yr old woman!!
