Woman was in Panic and Making a Strange Purchase. Then Cashier Realizes the Terible Truth!
One day a cashier at Kroger, Shelly Yost, noticed an older woman making a bizarre purchase. The woman was buying $2,000 worth of iTunes gift cards.
She asked the woman why she was buying so many gift cards. The elderly woman said her granddaughter was in jail with a broken nose and that she needed to buy the gift cards to bail her out.
The woman was in a panic. She was terrified for her granddaughter’s well-being.
The cashier had heard for this scam before!
She stalled the frightened woman for as long as she could while she quickly slipped away to call the police. The police arrived and talked the woman down. The assisted living facility was grateful.
“The next day, they showed up, and they were the most genuine people,” said Yost. “They hugged me so tight and thanked me over and over. And they handed me a card, which I took and said ‘Thank you’. When I opened it later, there was super-nice gift in there.”
