Snohomish County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the man above who’s accused of pulling-off the scam on two unsuspecting cashiers at the Walmart in Marysville.
Detectives say small ‘mom and pop’ stores and convenience marts are also targets of the scam and they have some good advice for cashiers. "When you get a large bill, leave it on top of the till when you're giving the change. Also, if someone seems to be distracting you, or trying to get you off-topic while you're counting the change back, just go ahead and slow down, be cautious and know, count it out loud when you're giving it back. Counting out loud can help. Another thing is, if you don't feel confident, go ahead and close the register, stop the transaction and call for your manager,” said O’Keefe.
