Fairfield Waitress Accused of Scamming Customers of $1K in Tips

Taylor Tap House employee charged with theft, credit card fraud and forgery.

A waitress at a Fairfield restaurant has been accused of a credit card scam that defrauded about 20 customers of more than $1,000 over a two-week span last month, police said.

Daisy Moss, 33, of Woodland Park, was charged with theft, credit card fraud and forgery.

Moss, who was employed at the Taylor Tap House on Fairfield Road, altered the credit card receipts of about 20 restaurant patrons between May 7 and 23 by increasing the tip amounts left for her totaling about $1,095, police said.

A customer noticed the increased charge on his credit card statement and alerted management of the Taylor Tap House. The restaurant worked with Detective/Sgt. Charles Zampino and Detective Jeffrey Didyk to make a case against Moss, police said.

Moss was charged last Friday and released on her own recognizance.

This no good wench places a black mark against all the many waitresses and waiters who work hard for their money and would never think of stealing from their customers and harming the reputation of their employers.I can only hope her employer will follow through and see that she is charged in court and not want to drop any charges against this thief. This is why my tip is always left in cash and for that matter my bill is always paid in cash as well.Reason,I've already been the victim of identity theft w/o ever having lost any documents. A 7 to 8 year nightmare I'd not wish on anyone. Respectfully,Gregory L. Mitchell,West Caldwell

According to some Yelp reviews of the place, this had been going on for a while. . . and it wasn't just tips. . . one reviewer said this gal had charged CONCERT TICKETS to his card.
