Case of the Month: Shedding the Pounds

By Adam Creamer

An associate, identified by an Analyst from Agilence Professional Services, was found ringing up lunch for another associate at a severely discounted cost. The video log showed the cashier scan in a food product for the other associate for one price. Presumably feeling generous, the cashier is clearly seen voiding the item, then weighing it such that 80% of the product was off the scale, and keying in the reduced price. That sure is one way to lose the weight!

The fraud almost always starts small and light. The trick is catching it before it gets too heavy on the loss.

Tips to Help Prevent this Behavior:

• Ensure proper training is administered for all scales and stress accuracy.
• Discourage associate-to-associate transactions.
• Monitor data for unusually small weight items after voids, as well as for high numbers of associate-to-associate transactions taking place.
