Jail For ‘Skim-Scanning’ FoursomeSaturday, 22nd July 2017 at 12:54pm
The East Anglian Daily Times carries a story of four Asda checkout operators who stole hundreds of items in a “skim-scanning” fiddle.
Rachel Hassall, Angelina Mosley, Sally-Anne Sadler and Tracey Tate helped each other to avoid paying for items by “elevating” them over the scanning devices at checkouts.
In this way, items including children’s clothes, joints of meat and large boxes of washing powder weren’t paid for and, in one case, only £2.83 was paid for items that should have cost £45.38.
The well-planned fraud was uncovered after some of the women were seen deliberately going to each other’s tills to pay for their shopping.
