I recently went to the North Utica Gas station Full Serve and handed the kid my credit card and told him to fill it up. He told me my card was not going through - So I paid him cash. I then took off and pulled over in the lot to call my credit card company. They told me that the transaction went through fine. So, I turned around and went back to the gas station and was gonna beat the crap out of the kid that was trying to scam me. As soon as he saw me, he ran in and got my cash and returned it to me and said it just went thru the credit machine..

This is a scam, they tell you your card is not working, get your cash and charge the gas to your credit card, then pocket the cash...
Anyone filling up there, BE AWARE!!!
Also, double check your credit card statements for double transactions!!!!

I used to work at that gas station and car wash. Clifford Fuel Co. owns it. If I were you I'd call the office and let them know what happened! Last I knew they're on Wurz Ave.

Better off pumping yourself at the Sunoco near the Byrne dairy.. I always hit the "cancel" or "clear" button just before I walk away...and take the recipt.

Wow, I didn't realize there were any full service gas stations in NY. I don't remember the last time I used a full service gas station. I am always amused by the people from New Jersey who don't know how to pump gas at all because ALL of their stations are full service. Or at least they used to be, don't know if that's still the case.

Last I knew it's still the case. I guess it's the law that gas stations be full serve in Jersey!

lol All it says under ethnicity for this guy is "Not Hispanic." I guess there are two types of ethnicity for sex offenders: Hispanic and Not Hispanic.

Who would be scared of Leon Kline? He can't do shit and he's still on Parole and he's black, have no clue why it states Hispanic or not? I would think just by looking at his picture you could tell.
He looks like a psycho in the picture on that web site.

But I know that's not the first time that gas station has had problems. Its not worth worrying about your credit card numbers in the hands of them kinds of people, just get out and pump your own gas.

Read it again! His crime occurred in 2003; sentenced to 42 months in prison and is NOT on parole or any other supervising agency!

I go to this gas station at least 5 times a week and Leon has waited on me many times. I have found him to be very polite and does a good job in waiting on customers. In fact, the management of this gas station recently fired 95% of the employees working there as they were not doing what they should have been doing on their jobs BUT Leon was NOT fired as he is an excellent worker. This crime occurred when he was only 20 - 8 years ago. Did it ever ocurr to you that he might be trying to put his life back together again? Didn't anyone ever teach you "Don't judge a book by its cover"?
