Chippewa Falls Police say a quick-thinking Kwik Trip cashier saved a local woman from a scam.
Police say store leader Jenn Engaldo knew something was wrong when an older woman tried to buy two-thousand-dollars in Apple gift cards from the store on Woodward Avenue. Eventually, Engaldo and the police helped the woman realize she was falling for a fake arrest-warrant scam. Officers say Engaldo’s quick thinking helped save the woman’s bank account. Police are also reminding people that the court never accepts gift cards as a way to pay-off a warrant.
