- Japanese clerk Yusuke Taniguchi recently got into trouble after authorities discovered he has the credit card details of more than 1,300 of his customers.
- According to reports, Taniguchi may have ‘photographic memory’ so he was able to steal client data without using any machines.
- He is now under police custody.
When it comes to credit card scams, we’ve mostly been wary about machines and electronics created to steal our precious details. One Japanese cashier, however, proved to us that we can’t be careful enough these days – because some people may be getting our info by using photographic memory. In fact, the guy stole data from more than 1,300 of his customers in a mall!
Yusuke Taniguchi, a part-time cashier in Koto, Japan, is now in serious trouble after allegedly memorizing the names, 16-digit credit card numbers, security codes, and expiration dates. He later wrote all the information in a notebook.
As the reports tell us, Taniguchi has confessed to using the stolen details to purchase goods from online sellers. He eventually sold the items at a local pawn shop and used the money to pay for food, rent, and other expenses.
Investigations later led authorities to Taniguchi’s home after several mysterious purchases of items, such as two luxury shoulder bags worth $2,600 (270,000 Japanese yen), were traced to have been shipped to his address. They also discovered the notebook where he kept his customers’ credit card information. The suspect is now already under police custody.
Naturally, netizens couldn’t help but feel alarmed about the possibility of being scammed this way. Some also commented that Taniguchi “wasted his unique talent”
According to authorities, this story should serve as a reminder for the general public not only about keeping their info safe from unscrupulous individuals but also about monitoring their purchase history often.
Users should immediately get in touch with their credit card companies if they ever notice any suspicious irregularities to avoid falling victim into scams such as this.
