7-11 7 Eleven Credit Card theft, credit card duplicating San Bruno California
If you are one of the unfortunates who have shopped at this location and one day get the heartwhenching suprise of your account getting emptied out in another state, you have this store to be thankful of and for some reason which I know but cant put to print, the local police deparment is ignoring it.
The ones who are doing this are the employees. If you have been here whether a victom or not, you will notice many a times, especially with large lines, there is an employee off to the corner supposely doing inventory behind the customers.
What he is actually doing is recording everyone in the line in an area where both credit card terminals are in view and records not only the credit card number, but also the foolish ones like myself who didnt cover up the numeric terminal where they see the pin being entered.
I have spoken to the police department in regards to this and their only responce is they have no proof, to do anything and just blow it off, not to mention tend to friequent the establishment quite often.
The only reason I am doing this report is because this has happened on several ocasions and on the third time I got the evidence if not the police will use, at least gives me the satisifaction knowing where this was happening. The third time my new card was duplicated, I not only made sure no longer to use a pin but to use it as a credit card, and the first place I used it was at this 7-11. What took place is what I described above, but this time the clerk messed up and forgot to turn the flash off so it got my attention immidiately. Turned around and he turned as well with phone in hand pretending to do some other chore though not only did I get confirmation from another customer of what happened, several neighbors its happened too who shopped there. Now, after this all took place, I put the card away and used a backup to same account I had bank make me. I was not even surprised days later when my bank calls me to tell me the card was compromized in yet the same state as before where my account got emptied out the first time. My bank was well aware after I told them what was going on, and already had restrictions put on it so nothing got taken the third time, but still, if you go here or have to, bring cash or put tape over the credit card and cover the terminal with your hand, its the safest thing to do or youll go though what I have.
