I'll use a walmart for example and even Kohls does this or one of the big named stores nowadays. If you return something to walmart and it's bought with cash/debit, they will return it cash to you automatically. Assuming you have a receipt and the item to return. If you return something to walmart, and it's bought on credit card, the person has receipt and item, then it will automatically go to credit card (they dont need to swipe card, the receipt in question will be looked up and the computer does it automatically). If person has item, no receipt, they get store credit only. If you buy something, get a gift receipt (assuming u give it to them, or have some laying around) then all they can do is go return the item with gift receipt and only get store credit. It sounds like the person had your receipt and the item..thinking they'd get the cash for it..but turns out the computer knew it was an item bought on credit, and it was returned to the credit card with his dismay. That's how I'm reading this....if you are talking about something that happened behind your back. I don't trust anyone LOL. Even when you make a return with a receipt and the item and it's bought on credit when the computer brings it back up..the cashier doesn't tell info to the person, it automatically goes back on credit card bc the computer knows. even if the store is kinda old school..and it doesnt automatically go back on..the cashier would ask for the credit card with id or credit card only and can do a return..it would still go back to card. So does this person have access to your card somehow? If not, then i'd think this person had the item and receipt and just tried to get money back in cash or return it mayb not liking ur gift if u gave it him.
As for violation, I don't think there is a violation unless you are saying that this person went and opened up credit under your name..that's clearly id theft. they'd need ur id..ss#, etc. and that's clearly a whole other dog onto itself.
I would think that the person in question, would need a receipt in order for all of that to happen. And you are saying that the person didn't have a receipt? If they were close to you, claimed you were his wife etc etc, laid on some charm..i can see a store clerk (who wasn't suppose to be doing that in the first place)..looking up info like that and going along with it. As long as she didn't give info in return(which u may never even know if she did or not), then she probably didn't think it was an issue because the return she knew was going to go back on the card. he wasn't making out with any money. But even if that was the sitch..then..that sounds like a store policy issue that would need to be addressed toward employees from management. It could be breech of info on your part if the store clerk gave anything out..but like i said u may never know that. it then sounds like it would be your word against hers and hard to prove i'd think.
