Case of the Month: Price Check!


By Catherine Penizotto

A cashier was identified by the Agilence Analyst Services Group using price checks as a means to conduct fraud. The cashier passed hundreds of dollars in product over the belt without scanning and often used the price check key as a decoy to make it appear items were actually being rung into the register. This cashier moved so quickly that on several occasion, items she intended to pass, actually scanned and she took the care to go back and void the item so as not to charge her patron. The analyst group at Agilence identified 12 transactions over the course of 10 days in which this cashier passed $1200 to a family member. She was investigated; subsequently admitting to her bad deeds, and was walked, with her head bowed and hands in cuffs out the front door.

  Total Number of Incidents: 12

  Validated Losses: $1,104.23

  Total Value to Client: $13,250.80

Riddle me this:

When is a price check, not a price check...

When it’s used as a decoy for theft.

When is an employee not really an employee

When from you, your profits, she divests
