Credit card used for food
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.crimestoppersvic.com.au
