So someone explain this one to me.
Work in a retail pharmacy as a shift supervisor and I get a call to the front.
Woman (w) and a man, maybe mid twenties to early thirties are standing at the registers and the cashier (A) tells me they need to know the payment policy on Money Grams. I tell them cash. Always been that way. She protests and asks why. I state that's simply our policy.
(W): "Well then how come I can use a card at other places?"
Me: "I'm not sure. I only know our policy."
Turns out the man she was with was sending the money gram and trying to use a credit card to pay for it. I'm wondering if it was stolen? It just seemed so strange. Especially with how quickly the woman got angry about cash being required. Like she was overly defensive.
The weird part? He was sending it to her. The woman he came in with. In the same store.
Why would someone do this when there's an atm in the same store that charges half the fee?
This screams some kinda scam to me.
