Woman Cloned Customer Cards in Alajuela

Approximately ¢1.7 million colones was the take by a 21-year-old woman working in a franchise restaurant in Alajuela, who allegedly cloned customer’s bank cards.

The investigation by judicial agents began a month ago when complaints were received by customers.

The Hooters restaurant chain, for which the woman identified by her last name Monge worked, called her attitude unacceptable.

In the statement, Hooters said all card transactions will now be in view of the customer and under a strict security protocol.

Authorities report that an 18-year-old man was also arrested, who appears to have participated in at least one transaction.

During the police action, US$985 dollars, cell phones and ‘important documents’ to the investigation were seized.
