Military Wife Confronts Starbucks Cashier Who Stole Her Credit Card, and Then…..

Just wow! This military mom of three reminds me a lot of my best friend in Nevada. She doesn’t take crap like this lightly and has a lot of moxie. Juana Martinez drove to the Starbucks she regularly visits with her brother. She already knew that the cashier who served her when she visits there had stolen the information off her credit card and used it to buy $212 in groceries. The girl was caught on video for all of this. Juana drove up and confronted the girl, telling her she knew what she had done and was pressing charges. She told her the police were on their way and she was about to lose her job as well. Because of that theft, Juana and her husband could not pay their rent. They work hard for their money and you can only push someone so far.

From the Daily Mail:

A military wife captured the moment she confronted a Starbucks employee for making a copy of her credit card and spending $200 at a local grocery store… who then admitted to the theft.

Juana Martinez, 25, and her brother arrived at the drive-thru at Starbucks in Lakewood, California, where the mother-of-three then accused the barista of taking her credit card details on New Year’s Day.

She tells the 19-year-old cashier that she was caught on camera trying to buy groceries with the stolen card details – and the young worker immediately admits her crime and begins apologizing profusely.

Martinez, whose children are aged two, five and six, told Daily Mail Online that due to the theft, she was unable to pay her rent.

The girl said she wrote down the info off the card… she probably used her phone to take a pic front and back. She was only gone for a minute. The employee begged Juana not to press charges, but it was way too late for that. You just don’t do things like this. It’s called theft and it is reprehensible. Starbucks has fired the girl and they are defending themselves and their business. They are also working with Juana over the incident. I’m sure they will reimburse her, but they should make that a tidy sum, not just the $212 stolen from her. Maybe they should also give her coffee for life. Just sayin’. This happened in Lakewood, California and is hard to watch, but I don’t blame Juana one little bit for doing this. That girl earned every bit of what just happened to her. Make sure you watch your credit cards and what transpires when you go somewhere like Juana did.
