Lowes - Gift Card Exchange Scam By Another Customer
CATSKILL, NEW YORK -- I have been a Lowes customer for several years and have spent well over $40,000 in your Glenmont and Catskill stores. Last night 2/11/12 while in your Catskill NY store I had a problem. It wasn't at first with your store or any of your employes. It was with another customer who had returned things but got a store credit card that he didn't want. He saw me and offered me his care that had $135.87 on it for $100. We checked with a cashier to see if the card did have that credit on it and it did. I went to an ATM machine and got out the $100 and gave it to the guy. He left and when I unrapped the card in the receipt he had I found it to be an expired Walmart card not a Lowes card. I went to your store manager and asked him to call the local police for me and he told me he couldn't and that I would have to leave the store to make a call from some other place not from the store. Was I a bit upset yes especially how I have bought so much from Lowes as well as this store. As it was I was going to spend a good $200 more that night but now I will go to Home Depot from now on.
