The employee of Great Clips allegedly made 104 unauthorized transactions in small increments using customers' credit cards over the last several months, according to the manager's internal investigation.

are investigating a claim by the manager of Great Clips Hair Salon on Epps Bridge Parkway that an employee may have committed financial transaction card fraud, stealing money from customers by making more than 100 unauthorized transactions using their credit cards over the last couple of months.

According to an incident report, the manager told deputies on April 13 that some time between the beginning of the year and last week, two different customers called the salon after noticing a higher charge to their credit cards than had been made at the time of service.  When the first customer inquired about the discrepancy, the manager said she thought it was just a mistake and advised the employee to be more cautious.  But, after the second customer called to complain, the manager said she conducted an internal investigation and found 104 unauthorized transactions totaling around $155 had been made by the employee.

The case is currently under investigation.

The report did not specify any information about the identity of the employee, even gender, but I'll check with the investigator.
