Police are looking for suspects in what they're calling the quick change scam.

Havelock Police say the scam is committed when one or more of the subjects request change from a cashier.

During the process of making change, the cashier is distracted by one or more of the individuals and returns extra change to the individuals.

I also had a manager standing beside me when this happened and he knew what was happening and didn't say anything! it cost me $200. I don't know if these people are dangerous are not!! people are rude inconsiderate and plaid jerks!!

    Ashley, that is a great point. I have to thank Alpha Female for taking up space on the read comments section on this site. I mean she really makes no sense when she types.

    If these crooks would put time and effort into doing some good instead of trying to pull one over on someone there's no telling what they could accomplish.

    This story really "changes" a lot of things.

    Anonymous I know you couldn't either. If you had to work 8 to 10 hour shifts at a time on your feet, counting cash would get a just a little bit confusing after a while. Why don't you think before you open your big empty head? Show some kindness. People are getting greedy in this world today.

    Wait. How is this a 'scam' when the cashier is the one that can't count back correct change?

    Just like the TV theft story, this is nothing new! Seen a cashier get taken for $500 dollars once and when I spoke with her she had no idea! We taught them that if they got confused to just shut the drawer and call for help.

    To manager, many don't know how to count cash. Seriously, if the register didn't tell them how much to give back, they wouldn't have a clue.
