What is a “Quick-Change” Scam?
According to NABI, a Quick Change Artist, or sometimes, a Short Change Artist, is someone who steals money by confusing cashiers while they are making change. They do this in many ways. Usually, the thief attempts to distract or confuse the cashier during the transaction.
