TX: Dollar General manager scammed into activating $2.5K in prepaid cards; fake
Corporate Loss Prevention phone call
The Lufkin Police Department is investigating an incident in which someone
called the Dollar General on Kurth Drive and allegedly scammed a manager into
activating more than $2,500 in prepaid cards. According to the Lufkin Police,
the incident occurred at about 9:12 a.m. Monday. A man claiming to be a
corporate loss prevention officer called the manager at the Kurth Drive Dollar
General store and told her she needed to activate the cards, so she could take
them out of service, the report stated. The manager did so with a number of
Amazon, Net 10, and Vanilla prepaid cards.
According to the report, the woman told the responding LPD officer that it
seemed as if the man knew the store's computer system very well. "A district
store manager later told an officer that this is a nationwide scam and that it
has prompted new policy and training on prepaid cards," the report stated.
