A cashier at Sam’s Club in Missouri had been keeping a secret from her employers for month. Using her position to be able to hold and scan Sam’s club cards, Jalissa Brandon would convienitently “forget” to give customers their cards back. The club cards also act as mastercards. Brandon was able to steal hundreds from every customer.
Eventually camera footage helped management catch her in the act. Usually, customers are preoccupied with their purchase, and often forget to ask for their card. Brandon used that moment to hide the card. Camera footage even shows her hiding a card in her shoe. Or, she would give them a fraudulent card back.
A Missouri Sam’s Club cashier was arrested after allegedly stealing hundreds of dollars from customers on at least three separate occasions.
Stealing their Sam’s Club cards, which also act as MasterCards, video footage caught Jalissa Brandon in the act a number of times, KTVI reports.
One one occasion, Brandon took a customer’s card and handed them back a fraudulent one.
Other times she simply chose not to give the customers, who are normally preoccupied with other things in the checkout line, their cards back. Footage captured the woman slipping one person’s card into her shoe.
Brandon would then purchase items with the cards from Sam’s Club and from a Walmart next door. Victims often later complained of fraudulent transactions from these places.
Many were livid upon hearing the news.
