Credit card used for food

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

War­ragul Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a de­cep­tion in­ci­dent af­ter a stolen credit card was fraud­u­lently used at a take­away store in War­ragul last month.

It is be­lieved two males en­tered a food store on Queen St about 1.35pm on Oc­to­ber22.

The pair or­dered their meal and at­tempted to pay through EFTPOS.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors were told one of the males amended the pay­ment amount on the ma­chine with­out the at­ten­dant notic­ing, then used stolen credit card de­tails to make the pur­chase.

Po­lice al­lege that once the pay­ment went through, the pair de­manded a re­fund for be­ing over­charged and were given an amount of cash back.

Po­lice have re­leased an im­age of two males who they be­lieve may be able to as­sist with in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Busi­ness own­ers across the Baw Baw, La­trobe Val­ley and Bass Coast ar­eas are urged to be mind­ful when pur­chases and trans­ac­tions are be­ing made through EFTPOS.

Any­one who recog­nises the males or has in­for­ma­tion is urged to con­tact Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or sub­mit a con­fi­den­tial re­port on­line at www.crimestop­
