I needed to purchase a money order for just under $26.00. The CVS employee asked for my drivers lic. When I asked why, she responded something to the effect of “federal rules”. I went home and looked this up. The only thing I found at several different sites was an ID is called for for money order over $3,000. I returned to the store and advised the employee of this. Her response was, “Well they are making us do this.” I advised her that I felt my rights were violated and that I would be speaking with an atterney about this. I then stopped at six other places that sell money orders, including WalMart.
When I asked aabout an ID to purchase a money order, ALL OF THEM, said only if over $3,000. CVS, it seems that your employees have been told something wrong. So far CVS is the ONLY one asking for ID. I will no longer shop at CVS until this resolved. I want my ID info removed from CVS data banks.
