Is 200,000 Dollars A Really Great Tip Or Just A Scam? (PHOTO)
Servers BEWARE! This could happen to you. Just be careful, the next time you see a HUGE tip like this, it could be (and probably is) a scam.Servers, I know you get excited after serving someone food and filling their water without them asking. You seem to be there just in time to get the customer what they want with a huge smile on your face. You only get paid 2 bucks an hour. So of course, you're going to do what ever it takes to make that customer happy to make that tip.
I'm here to help you because I don't want you to get scammed. This scam right here is gong around.
According to Huffington Post:
The customer just has to put something "impossible" on the bill, and Visa will not process it. Since the amount and the tip are hand-written, it means you had to enter it into the till with the tip amount AFTER the customer had left. Visa would outright reject it then as almost no one has that much credit. Even if Visa accepted it, the customer would just call later and claim she had been scammed. Visa would annul the entire bill. The only thing you could have done is pointed out her error.
