Lafayette Waitress Steals $30,000 From Walk-On’s

Former Walk-On’s waitress Hue Bui entered a guilty plea Wednesday to one count of wire fraud involving theft from Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar in Lafayette.

While employed by Walk-On’s from February 2012 to August 2012, Bui managed to steal over $30,000 by using an elaborate scheme involving $25 prepaid American Express, Visa, and Master Card gift cards. According to the US Attorney’s Office, Bui would charge fictitious food and beverage orders to the $25 gift cards she purchased herself. Bui would then add in a tip amount that would exceed the card’s $25 limit. This allowed Bui to cash out her tips that night, but when the transactions were sent to the card companies, the card companies would notice the overdraft and charge the transactions back to Walk-On’s.

The scheme allowed Bui to essentially tip herself, and have the total charged to Walk-On’s.

Bui faces 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, restitution, and three years of supervised release for the count of wire fraud.
