Gene Stamell: CVS employees save customer from scam

Friday, May 29, 2020

A huge shoutout to the employees of CVS in Amherst Center for saving me from a $300 scam. A friend, I believed, needed a favor — he was unable to get to a store and needed a gift card for his nephew’s graduation.

He would gladly reimburse me if I could purchase the card for him, take a photo of the PIN number and receipt, and send him the pictures. Details of the scam are complicated, but the bottom line is the employees recognized it for what it was and persuaded me not to purchase the card. I am very grateful.
