Police investigating check-cashing scheme at Boardman Walmart

Published: Tue, July 26, 2011 @ 6:41 p.m.


Boardman police and Walmart officials are investigating a check-cashing scam.

Samantha N. Buxton, 22, and her sister Stephanie D. Buxton, 21, both of Youngstown, are charged with criminal simulation. They had a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Mahoning County Area Court in Boardman.

Police said Boardman Walmart loss-prevention officers reported that beginning in June, five fraudulent company checks were returned to the store as non-existing accounts.

In each case, Walmart officials said the suspects presented company payment checks and identifications and payment was given to all of the suspects, according to reports.

The investigation is ongoing, said Boardman Detective Greg Stepuk.

Samantha was just doing her thing and shopping at Walmart and they became intolerant .


Both Stephanie and Samantha were victimized by Walmart . In the interest of justice Walmart should appologize to them and drop the matter . Let's hope that the girls didn't become traumatized and hateful over this shoddy treatment .

Boardman would be better off without Walmart. How lucky they will be now that Walmart is building an even bigger store there. That is a good place for the new substation and all ten new police officers to patrol on foot. Pass that levy!

Obviously these two did not get the Obama memo on spreading the wealth. You don't have to steal anymore, Obama is giving money and benefits away like an Oprah show

These Walmart loss-prevention officers need to get some sensitivity training . Walmart has an obligation to respect all of its customers . Insinuating fraud isn't being respectful . If there was a problem in processing these checks for payment then Walmart should absorb the loss and write it off their income taxes . They must stop victimizing these young girls as they dont have the capacity to do anything criminal .
