Police in Chippewa Falls are crediting a pair of quick thinking Kwik Trip workers with saving a woman from a scam.
Officers say the clerks noticed a woman buying a gift card to send money to someone over the phone. The clerks called police, who helped the woman realize she was being scammed. Officer James Luckey says the woman thought she was dealing with someone from the social security office. He says it’s a common scam, and is warning other people not to fall for it.
