Waiter getting charged with Credit Card Fraud for boosting tip from $2 to $8

A waiter at an IHOP in Georgetown who decided to boost his paltry tip after the customer left the restaurant has ordered up a big plate of trouble.

Richard Barfield is charged with credit card or debit card abuse for giving himself an unauthorized tip.

According to an affidavit, a woman and her family had dinner at the IHOP at 750 S. IH-35 in Georgetown on August 4, where the bill came to $33.76 including a $2.00 tip.

Two days later, the report says, the woman checked her account transactions and noticed the IHOP transaction totaled $39.76, which she did not authorize. Upon contacting the restaurant, it was discovered the transaction receipt shows an $8.00 tip, and the receipt on file is the customer's copy, not the merchant's copy.

The woman says she completed the merchant's copy, and states she did not authorize the $8.00 tip.

the wait staff is responsible for processing the payments for their tables, and that each member of the wait staff is assigned a user name and password for the register.

Yeah, that's pretty obviously and rightfully credit card fraud. The fact that it was only a few dollars is irrelevant.

That's because a legal system which allows wait staff to be paid a pittance so they require to be tipped to make their wage up to the legal minimum is stupid.

exactly.

most people might call her a bish for making a big deal out of it.

but if i accidentally left a tab open at a bar, for example, and got charged like 30 bucks extra

i'd be pretty pissed, and would def. take action.

I tip when I feel that the waiter has been exceedingly pleasant to me, or has gone out of their way for my arbitrary desires. I don't believe that even average service is WORTH the pay waiters are usually given bar some of the more exclusive and/or speciality chains where pay is reasonable, and as such if a staff member does work hard, I give a shallow token of appreciation by means of a small tip.

Either way, the guy should be "stealing" from his employer, not his common man. If it was a mindless pushing of a wrong key then, well, I don't know how you could prove that.

Not if the meal was around $10. But I didn't read the article so I dunno how much the whole shabang was I mean, it's fucking IHOP. It's closer to McDonalds than an actual restaurant.

EDIT- Aight, $2 is a shit tip for a $30 meal. But you still, you can't just steal monies from peeps

I think charging him was a bit much for stealing six dollars, but he definitely should have been fired. They had the right to charge him though since the evidence was so blatant.

also you're a piece of shit, omg
#24
yeah I wouldn't press charges for that as the customer but the server definitely doesn't deserve to be in a position where he's dealing with customer's money, so he can go find a new job

Kinda sad that someone would steal six bucks. Hopefully their sentence will reflect how arbitrary the amount is.

$10 fine and $12 to the customer would be fair imo

They're not wrong, you know. Considering how servers just expect the 10-15% tip is kind of crazy. Some of them aren't anything special at their job nor do they go out of their way to make the customer's experience better. Tipping isn't really my thing. I only do it to give my bill an even number when using a card.

Yeah. I mean at most community service, right? It'd be crazy for them to see any jail time. Shit, I'd personally be happy to front the $6. Crazy.

So he got caught upping the tip.
I wonder if this was the first time he did this or has he been doing it for years?
And I'm sure other people have been arrested, charged, and convicted for less than $6.
What an idiot.

Damn restaurants should pay their employees a decent wage so tipping is more like a bonus for a job well done and you can go to the movies that night or something nice rather than the difference between living in a decent apartment/house or living in your car.

Also, a $2 tip for a $33 meal is cheap, That's fucking 6%.
Sounds like something my mom would do.
She's a cheap ass when it comes to tipping.
She will tip $2 for a $33 meal.
But I have also seen her tip $2 for a $20 meal.
That's still kinda low IMO.
It seems $2 is her standard tipping amount.

It's theft. Plain and simple. If someone grabbed that out of your pocket, you would be rightfully pissed off.

Old man CodeMonk is right.
Just pay the staff ffs.
And also, while we're at it, put the price with tax included on items in the shops.
