Target Employees Prevent Elderly Couple From Losing $2,000 To Grandson

Hanover County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia, recognized two Target employees for their keen instincts and eye for detail.

The story begins when an elderly couple steps into the store. The elderly couple received a phone call from a total stranger. The stranger told them that he was a police officer with a local jurisdiction and had arrested their grandson.

There is only one way to get their family member out of jail, he said, was by purchasing two $2,000 Target gift cards. The worried couple, wanting to help their grandson, and immediately drove out to Target to buy the two cards.

The cashier, Matthew Tebbens, and another employee, Mariah Thomas, grew suspicious.

Before charging them, the cashier asked them a few questions about the purchase. Then they explained that the grandparents were most likely being scammed.

Later, it turned out that the concerned employees were correct. They successfully thwarted a huge financial scam — not to mention a lot of emotional stress.

After reporting it to the police, the Sheriff’s Office was stunned by seeing two ordinary citizens work together to help the couple.

“As law enforcement officers, we can’t be in all places at all times. It warms my heart to see our citizens go above and beyond to help each other, which in turn acts as another set of eyes and ears for the Sheriff’s Office,” said Hanover County Sheriff David R. Hines.
