Panhandeling Begging Donation Charity Scam Harassment Shame Bullying Fraud Checkout Customer Register Elder Abuse Raising grocery Prices Boycott

Vons should be ashamed at their scam of repeatedly asking paying customers to give to a donation to charity of Vons' Choice. I was donating a dollar each time i shopped. I stopped after hearing a radio talk show complain about this practice of shaming the customer into donating. The next time i was in the store checking out, I selected "decline to give to a charity" I thought that would be the end but the cashier completed the transaction and held my receipt hostage while asking me to give once again. I politely declined then she said we can "round up " meaning if my bill was 25.70, I would agree to pay 26.00 for the third time I politely declined . She reluctantly released my receipt and allowed me to leave.I see the game clearly, they are determined to force, bully or shame you into giving. I will NEVER give to a Vons sponsored charity. I also will boycott any charity they were forcing down my throat. On a side note the guy bagging the groceries asked me twice, if I wanted help out while she tried desperately to add money to my bill. She asked twice if I found everything I was looking for and If I updated my Vons card . The Cashier and the guy bagging were firing off a barrage of questions and I know it's part of the SCAM to Confuse, Distract, Disorientate and Bombard the customer, anything to ADD money onto the bill. I have this lady on video trying to force me to donate. I am also investigating who is behind this aggressive panhandling at the register. It's so sad, the homeless beg in front of the store and cashiers beg inside. It's not good enough that we shop there. Never Again, Vons Never Again………Full Boycott!!!

    The cashiers enjoy shaming customers. I'm sure they get a commission or bonus for scamming the most customers, pitiful people

    I tried to SAY NO but they keep asking . No one begs that desperately unless they're getting something out of it.
