The Convenience Stores and Newsagents Association (CSNA) has been made aware that there are individuals visiting or phoning stores claiming to be a Payzone representative asking staff members to print prepaid vouchers and cards.
In a statement, the CSNA said: “Please inform all staff that Payzone will never phone or visit a store and ask you to print a voucher.
“Do not print or communicate voucher numbers to anyone on the phone. If you are asked to do this , please notify Payzone on 0818 882 600.
