There is no reference to "scooping" in the story, although we might think of Scrooge scooping up his money within his hands. The quote below refers to a number of similar actions; squeezing, wrenching, scraping."

"But he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner! Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster."
