Havre taverns scammed
A few bar patrons decided to start the new year with a gamble that may have paid off initially, but might end up making the rest of 2012 very difficult for them.
According to Tammy Schmidt, owner of the Golden Spike, a group of people worked together to cheat several bars across town out of $400 each, stealing more than $6,000 in the process.
Schmidt said the scam started with one person putting $200 on a machine then going outside to pretend to smoke or talk on a cellphone. Then they cashed out, made copies of their cash slip and had different people cash out the slips at different times...
