1 PLEASE PASS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS. on Sun Jan 17, 2010 4:31 pm

rosco 357

my words, im not at all sure i believe this, i lean to not believing it, it was an email, BUT, since it is so easy to do, is why im posting, just to be safe, actially when someone got my card number twice, the detective told me if i buy gas on the card to swipe at the pump is the safest way, so who knows, but dont ever let ur card out of ur sight, i was told, but i dont use it much now,


Using credit/debit card? Read this note very carefully. I did not know about the clear button, but I will be pushing the clear button before I swipe my gas or debit card and after just to be safe.

People are getting really desperate due to the constantly rising gas prices. A friend just told me about something that happened to one of his coworkers.

She used her credit/debit card to purchase gas at the pump (like most of us do). She received her receipt like normal.

However, when she checked her statement, there were 2 $50. charges added in addition to her purchase. Upon investigation, she found out that because she did
not press the 'clear' button on the pump, the employee inside the store was able to use her card to purchase his/her own gas!

To keep this from happening, after you get your receipt, you must press the 'CLEAR' button or your information will be stored until the next customer inserts their card.

Be sure to tell all your friends/family so that this doesn't happen to them!

I had never noticed the clear button but I got gas the other day and sure enough it is there. I shall be using it from now on.

Great tip !!!!
I know you also have to watch all your reciepts for cash being added to your purchase using debit or credit cards, Wal-mart has gotten caught several times recently.
