In an international discount-chain store, the risk analysis module of the POSeidon cash register control system draw the attention of a colleague that the number of risky transactions increased at the cash registers. With the help of the POSeidon Control System, we rapidly managed to discover and systematize those images. During the analysis and evaluation of these, our colleagues established the perpetrator, the person responsible for the numerous risky transactions. The more they examined the images, the more obvious it became that it was a conscious, well-organized and financial gaining deed of a cashier, who made such abuses several times.

The essence of the method was that the last customer to pay at the cash register was printed and given a receipt with a “part total”, which was not saved in the black box of the cash register, so the sale was not recorded. After the customer paid for the goods, and left the store, the cashier slightly opened the cover of the receipt printer, which led to the total deletion of the “part total”. The money received from the customers was hidden in his/her clothes. The method represented goods worth 5-8000 forint per occasion without being paid. Summing up the information and the images, our colleagues discovered 20 similar cases, with goods worth 190 thousand forint.

 

Being in possession of all the information and images, the store informed the police, made the accusations, and together with the police managed to discover the perpetrator. He/she had 20 thousand forint in his/her clothes, which were taken out that day with the aid of the method mentioned above. The employee recognized his deed, and promised to make amends for it, and pay back the money. The efficiency and the success of the investigation were proven, and similar acts have not occurred in the store subsequently.

In a Hungarian store, part of an international discount-chain, the manager requested our assistance recently, concerning a cashier who continuously finished his/her shift with a cash register deficit. This sum was between 1000 and 5000 forint per occasion, and the management could not find any explanation. With the aid of the POSeidon cash register control system from the above mentioned store, we managed to gather relevant information regarding the cashier.  After evaluating the data, and replaying the images, concluding the analysis it became obvious that the cashier in question, had not had the cash register deficit by accident or by mistake. The images showed that the cashier committed abuses on a daily basis, causing prejudices to our client. The method was extremely simple, but extremely clever. The cashier always involved a member of its family, spouse or brothers/sisters. Their relatives always bought at his register, generally values below 2000 forint, but the cashier returned much more, between 1000 and 5000 forint, without any basis. During the examined period of time, the cashier made a prejudice of more than 170 thousand forint.
