Clerk Scammed Out Of $1,100 While Making Change

The scam is called being "quick-changing". 

If you work at a convenience store of any kind, watch out for this trick!

Westlake police say a smooth-talking customer was able to talk a young Marc's cashier out of $1,100.

Police say a man was caught on camera on Saturday night making a purchase of just $7.33 with a $100 bill at the Marc's on Detroit Road.  The man, along with another woman, then bamboozled the 18 year old clerk into giving them a series of combinations of bills in change.  In the end, the store handed over $1,100.

Capt. Guy Turner of the Westlake PD said "Moral of the story: When someone makes a small purchase with a large denomination bill, then starts asking for all sorts of various combinations of currency in change, SLAM THE REGISTER SHUT AND CALL YOUR MANAGER!"
