Tesco clubcard scam

Anyone with a clubcard, check your points before you leave the shop/fuel station.

Guy at work bought petrol and thought the number of points he had was a bit high - 1700. Bought something else a few days later and his points were 400. The clubcard number was different on each card.

Seems the staff in the petrol station are scanning a different card and pocketing the clubcard points.

I'm pretty sure the staff are local and not retarded, just chancing a quick buck.

Re: Tesco clubcard scam

Surely you'd see them pick up another card? They always scan it right in front of you when you give them the card here.

Re: Tesco clubcard scam

Not if they scan their card first, then they 'scan' yours and then take payment.

But how can scanning a different card deduct points already awarded to another?

Sorry, my bad. I failed to read Hellcats original post properly - "...Guy at work bought petrol and thought the number of points he had was a bit high - 1700..."

yes, but the value of the vouchers is significantly less than the extra you have paid on the prices, so the vouchers are not free at all, you pay a lot more for them than they are worth.

that is the basis of all loyalty schemes.
