Does anybody else buy the Supermarket vouchers from ebay ?

I have , I used them twice in my local big Tesco & went tonight to do my monthly shop & when I went to pay they had me fishing each item per voucher out of my trolley & then the customer service manager came over & said that I was trying to commit fraud by using them & refused to let me have any of my shopping & banned me from the store with the threat of reporting me to the police !
He also kept all my vouchers .

He said I was in every week with them , yet im not & made me feel like a criminal angry

Obviously im going to try & get refunded for all my vouchers .

But just wondering if anybody else uses them ?
I have only used them twice before & never had any problems or anything .

I have been told when I rang the same store & spoke to the manager that they do accept them (this was two weeks ago) & if they didnt then they would not scan , so why has this happened. ?

I think they have noticed you from previous weeks, even though it may have only been a few. The vouchers may have scanned when you shopped before but then subsequently found to be fake. Therefore they may have been keeping an eye out for you coming again.

If they believe they are fake then they aren't going to give them back to you. It would be allowing you to try using them again if you were indeed a criminal.

I would write a letter to Tesco head office explaining that you thought this was a legitimate process and had no idea the vouchers were fake. You've learned your lesson and would like to be able to shop in their store again.

You could lodge a complaint with eBay but since you do not have the vouchers to return or, more likely, if they are fake the seller will have disappeared or be uninterested, I'm not sure how far you will get.

I have only been in twice since may so I doubt they recognised me
