Walmart lost money on the food stamp cards in Louisiana


Witnesses related that some people were dragging out eight or more grocery carts. A woman took more than $700 in groceries even though she had only $0.49 on the card.
The problem is that retailers are responsible for implementing emergency procedures if the system goes down. As a consequence, Walmart will be forced to pay the difference beyond every shopper’s balance. That means the damage is thousands of dollars.
After two hours, the system’s glitch was corrected and many shoppers abandoned overflowing carts in the aisles.
A few people resisted however to this fraudulent temptation. Their answers are very similar to this one: “I am conscious of the fact that this isn't my money.”
