Customer Confronts Barista Over Stolen Card
It's not like we haven't been warned. We've all seen the public service announcements about credit card theft, identity theft, and other ways that some have discovered to separate us from our hard-earned money. We've been warned, but how do you go about stopping it from happening?
One woman's answer to that would be to go and confront the thief, all the while recording the encounter.
From the New York Daily News:
A California Starbucks cashier got caught red-handed stealing a customer’s credit card information, and faced the grande wrath of her furious victim.
Juana Martinez unloaded a fiery tirade Sunday in Lakewood on the sticky-fingered cashier, who was stunned and admitted to the crime after being confronted by the theft victim.
The 2-minute 30-second clip has since gone viral, a penalty worse than arrest for the 19-year-old coffee shop employee, Martinez told The Daily News.
"I think this is a worse punishment, honestly," Martinez said. "I think it's more than enough that she's all over the Internet. People will know who she is."
In the clip, the teen cashier identified as "Chanel" greets the customer and hands her a drink with a smile, which quickly turned into a frightful grimace once Martinez called her out for swiping her credit card digits.
