Ok so I stick to small time stuff and I got caught at wal fart and banned. They also charged me. I am not worried too much about the court date since it is a first offence but i have questions about the ban.

Does it apply to all locations?

Do they use facial recognition to find ppl or is it just more of "Hey i know that guy" based on the LP that caught me?

I would not visit any of the Walmarts in your area for a good year. LP can easily rotate stores.

Walmart has tested facial recognition. No idea if it is currently.

Curiosity got the better of me and I looked at your post history.

Why do you even bother to comment.

I wouldn't listen to me either.

Fuck revisiting an area when you get caught with a simple lift. I am sure LP just got lucky. Doubtful it was due to a rookie making a body language mistake and doubtful LP will easily recognize the behavior again and bust them..

What the fuck do I know.

Best to be cautious in general. A lot of states have increasing penalties each time you are caught, my state for example will give you a felony if you have multiple petty thefts. Petty theft with a prior. Not sure the exact requirements for this but it’s something to look into.

They normally don't issue a ban for first offenders if it isn't a large amount, but it's my understanding when u do get banned you're ban from all WalFart's internationally. That being said I've never been stopped because facial recognition. Just avoid that particular store for a while, the main thing worry about is if u are caught again lifting from any WalFart u will show up as being banned and that brings an additional trespassing charge on top the theft charge

Do you really think a WalFart in the east coast is gonna know that someone got banned from a WalFart in LA? The whole idea that you're banned from all WalFarts internationally is ridiculous.

You can go back to other WalFarts in the same county if you want. Wear a hoodie and if confronted simply deny that you are who they suspect you are. What way do they have of proving different?

That's not what I'm saying. The question op ask was did the ban apply too all locations and according to walfart policy yes it applies too all walfart locals. I also said I hadn't been stopped as I was walking in or anything and avoiding the exact store location got burned in for a few months is just common sense imo. Op ask some questions and I answered them. However if they actually issue a ban and they catch u lifting at another store no matter east or west cost they will hit u with trespassing thats all I was saying

They had me sign a form that I was banned and would be charged if found there

Lots of companies have to sign “contracts” that would never hold up in court. Not sure if this is one of them because I haven’t tested it, but it could be legit because I know for sure that any business can refuse service to any person for any reason that is nondescriminative (race, age, sex, religion, etc.) You signing the doc is acknowledging the refusal.

walfart's not using facial recognition but they may pass your photo around to the LPs of other stores in the area. if you feel like testing your luck, you might get turned away at the door or they might watch you the entire time you're in the store waiting for you to fuck up.
