Re: Employer Making Me Pay for Theft
so, you are saying you allowed him to walk out of the store WITH the stolen card that you just activated and put $200 credit balance on it without paying for it.
Of course, the video tape also shows you running out in an attempt to get his license number, right?
and of course, since he did leave a card that was presumably registered to the thief in a package in the store, you went over and got that and gave that to the police so they could track the guy, right?
and of course, there is a police report for the theft of the new card too, right?
Ya see, if you look at this from just a little different perspective, it looks like you activated a card, put $200 on it and let him walk out of the store with it in his hand. Hopefully there is video of your showing some sort of extreme reaction to just getting ripped off for $200 or it might look like you are complicit in the crime.
