A Walmart cashier just saved a desperate grandfather from being scammed. Cicil Rodgers, received a call during Christmas from someone pretending to be his eldest grandson and he was in jail because he had caused an accident. The caller also gave the phone to someone else claiming to be the lawyer to make it look like it’s true. Apparently, he needed $2,300 for bail. Smell something?
Well, Cecil, being the big-hearted grandpa that he’s always been, agreed to transfer the money. However, the callers insisted that he shouldn’t tell anyone about it. Cecil headed out and withdrew the money from an ATM, and then walked into a Walmart branch to make the transfer. That’s when the cashier did it!
Audrella Taylor has been a cashier for years, and she can smell a scam from miles away. After hearing Cecil’s story, she immediately declined to transfer the cash for him.
