I don't see how can anyone feeling so offended getting caught using a faked credit card. I manage a retail store specializing in video gaming entertainment. First guy. Wanted to a buy an Xbox 360 system with a DiscoverCard. My staff knew it was faked but asked me to confirm it. The card has a very flat or non reflective DiscoverCard emblem. The signature part has a type-looking label on it. Took me a moment to break this news to him. I told him his card was faked and said that mine didn't look like that (I pulled out mine and to show him the real thing BTW). He said he was very offended and insisted that his card was different because his was from some country in South America. Hahahaha........ "Yeah, different DiscoverCard," I told him sarcastically. I said to him he should let me have his card and I would call the bank to confirm it. This dumbass left the store. I told him I was very offended because he was trying to use a faked credit card. I told him to get the hell out of my store and not to return ever again.
20 minutes later, the second guy. He was about to purchase an Xbox 360 system, Madden 07, and an extra controller. When you have worked in the retail industry long enough, not too long, you can tell who is a "faked" customer. This guy didn't care how much he was about to spend because it didn't take him long enough to make all the purchase decisions. He didn’t even care what they hell he was buying. I was about to leave but decided to see how this transaction turned out. He was paying with a Macy's Visa. This one was really good. Emblem checked out OK. Some what real looking. Something was wrong with this card. This dude got nervous and said that he wanted his card back. Ah!!! I noticed then his card was missing the "V" logo and the word "Visa" was totally incorrect.
I told him his card was faked because I have couple of Visa cards myself. I pulled mine out and showed him the missing "V" on his card. BTW, there were 4 or 6 customers in the store as well as 2 of my staff witnessing the whole "show." I was still holding his card and he said his was different because it was a Macy's card. Hahahaha..... Where these people come up with an excuse like that? He was extremely upset and angry and he demanded me to give him back his card. I gave it to him and told him to leave now. I threatened him with the "I will call the police and the bank." He said I won't do it because I would get fired. I said to him "no, YOU….. will get arrested." I looked at him straight into this eyes and waited for couple of seconds for him to get my message. I insisted again he should leave now. He left but came back with some credit card user contract. Apparently, this dude wasn't getting the message. I opened one of the registers and pulled out a business card with a number of one of the detectives. I told him to wait for a police officer to come. He left of course.
I am sure these scum must have a twisted moral reason for using a faked credit card
