There's no E in "Daly City"
Thanks for the catch! Hopefully Bay City News Service knows better and it was just a typo.
Likely they will be in other stores in the area, so be careful. I have been told not to use cards linked to bank accounts (use credit cards) or to use cash.
I'll tell you why they hit the Mountain View store - no cashiers, no one to watch over the self service counters. I had trouble with a price check at the self service counter and there were no cashiers around to help except for the one that was busy helping in-line customers. i ended up leaving all my groceries on the self-service counter after 5 minutes of hoping some would come around.
Mary, the Mountain View Lucky's store is somehow different and the Sunnyvale store or the Palo Alto store, etc? These guys have likely striked all Lucky stores instead of other stores like Safeway because there are less employees manning the front of the stores and they can go undetected while they do whatever they have to do. Having gone to Lucky's in MV and other places, and not liking it, at least that's what it seems to me. I think the moral to the story is be super careful when utilizing your credit or bank card and unless you're sure you're safe, consider using cash.
We were at that Well's Fargo at San Antonio a few weeks ago, and there was a young guy taking close up and farther away photos of the ATM slot. Someone alerted a nearby cop, but they didn't do much. The young guy went in the bank when they approached, came out the other side of the bank and was studiously "cleaning" the ATM reader area, with a small spray bottle and rag in hand that he had ostensibly pulled from the pockets of his voluminous board shorts. The cops seemed almost uninterested' and the guy was once again pointed out. I didn't see what happened, but it just seems childs play to get up and close, especially for someone who knows what to put in there.
We had a bunch of break ins in our neighborhood that, long story short (and please remember I just said that) seemed suspiciously like what you would get if someone were using an rfid "sniffer" for certain chips or products.
Violent crime is down; is crime down? (Seeing as white collar crime does't seem to be taken very seriously... Or is that just big time white collar crime?)
Don't miss out on the discussion!
