MILLBROOK, Ala. (WSFA) - The Millbrook Police Department is asking the public’s help in solving a fraud investigation.

Police say on Aug. 15, a man and woman went into a retail store in the 100 block of Kelley Boulevard and asked a cashier to load a Green Dot prepaid card.

Police say this is a called a “cash out scam.” It started as the cashier retrieved the card, which cost $3.74. Police say the pair then attempted to load money on the card. Once the cashier retrieved the card, the cashier put $400 on it and was “swindled by the subjects to press the cash button” so they could get an additional $800 back.

Investigators say these two are targeting new or young cashiers to conduct scams.
