Local Business Victimized by Scam

by Jessica Cervantez

Businesses need to beware because a well-known scam is showing up in parts of East Texas again. Sunday night the Quizno's in Lufkin was hit.

According to Lufkin police, two women and a man went and ordered food. The man said he needed change for a hundred, then asked the cashier to break it down even more, and kept changing his mind on the change that was needed, confusing the cashier. The two women were apparently distracting others from helping the cashier figure out the correct change needed.

At the end of the night, employees discovered the cash drawer was short.
