An employee at a Best Buy store shared a viral video where he claimed that a customer he dealt with tried to commit fraud.

He said that a female customer came in five minutes before the store closed and she started shopping around. The woman put expensive items into her cart and the employee said that he and his fellow workers thought the woman was going to try to walk out the building with them.

But the customer came to the front of the store to pay and her total came to just under $500.

The woman paid for her items with a check and the employee put the check into a machine that checks to see if it is valid.

The check wouldn’t process so the employee had to call a phone number to see if the check was valid so he could authorize the purchase.

The representative on the phone told the Best Buy worker that the situation was a “Code 3” and that they couldn’t authorize the purchase.

And one person was surprised that some folks still use checks.

Yeah, this could have been a situation where this the bank system just didn’t get it right.

Don’t be so quick to judge, perhaps?
