The most frustrating part of credit card theft is not knowing who stole your information. But if the identity of the culprit did emerge, would you take the situation into your own hands?
The Daily Mail reports that California resident Elizabeth Becerra fell victim to a Starbucks employee who allegedly took a photo of Becerra’s credit card information on New Year’s day to use at a Ralph’s grocery store.
Furious over what went down, the mother decided to confront the nineteen-year-old cashier at the same drive-thru where her information was stolen. The unsuspecting girl looks stunned as Becerra pulls up to the window to discuss the events that had transpired. Becerra tells the employee, “I hope them $212 were worth it of groceries yesterday because I filed a f**king police report and your corporate already knows about it.”
Stunned, the young cashier responds by apologizing to the woman, explaining,
Regardless of the young girl’s age and situation, credit card theft is never the answer. According to NASDAQ, data breaches reached 1,540 worldwide in 2014, with 55% coming from “malicious outsiders” like the cashier.
Props to Becerra for taking her unfortunate situation into her own hands to show the cashier the impact of her actions. It’s probably safe to say this kid won’t be working at Starbucks ever again.
