Ok this is not something that was sent to me it actually happened to me today! I took my patient (90 yr old Lady) to WalMart today to do some shopping...she wanted to buy a gift card for her great grandson that is 2 months old so as the cashier started to check her out I told the cashier "she would like to purchase a $100.00 gift card," the cashier took a gift card swiped it punched in $100.00 and handed it to the little friend of her's standing there talking about lunch breaks. She then swiped another gift card and so I ask what was wrong with that card? She replied it says swipe another card, it must be a bad card. (I'm thinking yeah right!) But I keep my mouth shut. She finishes the transaction and told my patient her total and the lady gives her the visa card to swipe...I take my patient to the car load her bags in the car start the ar then ask her for the gift card she purchased, her credit card, and her reciept. She says why, when I explain she pulls out the reciept and sure enough sahe was charged for 2 $100.00 gift cards. So I left her in the car ask the security officer driving the lot to keep an eye on her and went inside and ask for a manager. We reviewed the tape and it was clear they had ripped off my patient. The manager gave me $100.00 cash back and I watched them take the 2 girls into the office...as I left the store the police showed up so my patient and I watched them load those girls into the car and haul them away. Staling from the elderly is the most hanious crime I think. Ever wittness something like this?

That is horrible! To rip off an elderly person is one of the lowest things someone can do! Many years go I worked at Sears. This was back when they sold sporting goods like canoes and row boats and kept them on the sales floor, close to the customer pick up area. One day two guys came in and picked up a canoe and walked out the door with it. I asked my elder associate "You sold another canoe today already"? He replied, "I didn't sell any canoes today, I though you did"! Turns out this was a shoplifting ring. They would boldly come and and just haul out big items and they weren't questioned since most associates assumed the item had been paid for. This was the good old days when we were naive to this kind of stuff.
