Richfield Burger King Cashier Suspected in Credit Card Theft
About $1,400 in fraudulent charges, including and iPhone 4S, appeared on the woman's card after a reportedly suspicious encounter with a Burger King cashier.
A Minneapolis woman suspects that a Richfield Burger King cashier used her credit card number to rack up $1,400 in online charges.
On May 21, the woman, a resident of the 4400 block of Xerxes Avenue, dined at a Burger King, 96 W. 66th St., with her 14-year-old son. According to the police report, she said that when she gave the cashier her Visa card, the employee “was acting suspicious[ly] and paid extra attention to the card."
Two days later, the woman received a call from Visa saying that her card had been used online to purchase an iPhone 4S for $700, along with another $700 charge that the credit card company is disputing, according to the report.
Police are still investigating the incident and accusations.
