There would be flags in place for both purchase (or theft) and use of high cash value gift cards to prevent fraud.Couldn't agree more @Dave thrown away a job and now has a criminal record for stealing from an employer, making his chances of getting another job pretty slim. You do have to wonder how he thought he would get away with it when the revenue didn't match the sales from Gift cards which I am guessing would have shown up as a separate category to instore or online sales.
Under the foundations ?Years ago I did some work for a builder. His labourer was caught stealing. Going onto site on an evening and a weekend and taking building materials. The builder sacked him but, a few months later set him back on as the lad had given him the sob story. Low and behold the lad did it again. Apparently he had a gambling problem. The second time the builder pressed for a prosecution. We never saw the lad again. The builder reckoned he’d had over £10,000 worth of materials over a 6 month period stolen.
