Nobody that has a method to make $10k+ in a single run is going to be sharing it for free. Cut the selfless bullshit. This is obviously a theoretical fantasy situation of yours that would certainly not work. It would be received better if you posted it as such and people could tweak the method but holy fuck is this bullshit.

You’re a legend and the skeptics are faithless cowards, jealous they’d never attempt it themselves.

This is a solid plan.

I have used a variant of this with having a partner outside. You have to find the store with the correct layout. The garden center is on the left with a very small driveway to the left of the store. The layout behind the garden center should be bulk lumber.

I rollup a duffel bag and rope and stick in my waistband. Shop for whatever you want. Make your way to garden and put everything in the backpack. Be sure to have a carabiner attached to the rope. Hook both shoulder straps to the carabiner and toss the rope over the fence.

The rest is just moving fast enough.

I have three solid people I work with. Helps when one of them is your wife. There are a good number of scenarios we can run and easy to create diversions.

You post good shit. Very legit. There is another good lifter here. Ignore all the hate. Maybe you can help me start my own manual. I want to start from ground zero but bridge the legal with illegal. If you are going to be lifting over five figures you need to invest in yourself and gain a skillset. Too many people lift for short term gain and don't have or don't want to spend the time doing recon. My lifts are almost always above felony. No point pulling a $1,500 job when I pull can 10k job. But, I am preaching to the choir here.

Don't know if you ever tried but if you buy a load of garbage cans you find cans with a few inches of clearance at the bottom. Easy enough to put a few faucets, smart locks, and electrician hand tools.

I stay away from power tools. Too many eyes and too many people think they can flip a Dewalt for 80% on the dollar.

We make a day where we just brainstorm and anyone onboard can then start testing.

From my modest experience of reselling stolen goods I realized that stealing a high value item doesn't necessarily mean that you can resell it quickly and at a high price. Reselling items with high demand like Bose headphones or airpods is way much easier than reselling razors. To me electronic door locks and bathroom faucet seem too specific and with a very low demand. I understand the argument that they are not watched as tightly as high end electronics but does it worth it? Do you resell it fast and at what percentage of the original price?

Amazn is a great platform for reselling. You can sell goods at full retail value but yeah it’s verrrry finicky. You can hire services to get approved in the different categories but at any time Amazn/brand owners can come a knockin for invoices and require proof that you’re allowed to sell that particular brand. If you don’t have the required invoices then they either block your listing forever or just shut down your account. You have to constantly be on the look out for new products with good margins to make it worth your while. If you do it right, you can easily make 6 figures with minimal to moderate effort

30% off is still very decent to me, I personally sell on websites dedicated to second hand items and I can't get rid of my goods at more than half of the original price even if I label them as brand new. I'm not familiar with eBay but I might try it now that I read your thread on fencing goods on it and considering that you sell at 70% of the in store price. I just don't understand if you use eBay as an individual like people use it to sell second hands goods or if you present yourself as a private company because both categories exist on eBay. I think the second ones can manage to sell at an higher price but if you can sell at 70% as an individual it is not necessary.

This is all good, but let me give you a tip: most of us aren't boosters, we're just lifters.

For those that don't know the difference, you can watch "Boosting for Billions" on youtube, but the short answer is that a booster makes a living by lifting large quantities and selling them to others.

I'm not a booster. Don't have the time or the network it takes, I have a legit full-time job, but most importantly I JUST WOULDN'T TRUST ANYONE. There's not a single network on earth that's safe from law enforcement infiltration.

I'm quite capable of lifting the small stuff for personal use and managing to look legit at the self checkout, so unless you can tell me how to lift my favorite fast food meals or gas, you're wasting my time.

And by lifting gas I mean in a safe way. Driving off with $50 worth of unpaid for gas and hoping to god they won't call the cops when they 've got my plates on camera is definitely NOT a risk I wanna take.

Suppose that’s what you get for entertaining amateurs, my friend. Nothing wrong with amateurs btw but the disdain for your methods is confusing.

I'm not an amateur, and definitely not a kid "trying to lift candy at the dollar store". About the only things I pay for are eating out, gas, .... oh and the utility bill. Most of my income is put away in savings (most as in "more than 50%").

I don't know about you but I plan to do this for as long as I live so what you call "disdain" for OP's methods is actually a healthy dose of skepticism. I don't like the risks that come with lifting large quantities, and I'm sure as hell not in the habit of believing something that just sounds too good to be true.

I don't know OP, and not saying he's not a good lifter, but like someone else put it: FREE and quick methods to earn 10K+, sounds a lot like fantasy.

Totally. I’m with you but we can’t ignore that soda clearly knows what he’s talking about even if it isn’t in our particular wheelhouses. Personally, none of his techniques are conducive for my lifestyle and I was actually really looking forward to his shoplifting method until I once again realized it was beyond my scope of abilities/risk allowance.

And lol yes I totally hear you on that last part, free and quick is massively misleading but the depth of his commentary make me believe it’s definitely worked for him and perhaps to HIM, it really IS “free” and “easy.” Which, if that’s the case, would lead me to believe that perhaps many of us are indeed amateurs in comparison.

His technique is solid. I have worked something like that but did not wait until the store closed.

GoodOldWorkingClass wrote

Never said the techiques aren't solid. Just that they're beyond most of us who only lift for personal consumption. I have no doubt these have worked for some of you guys, and hey, kudos to you.

What I'm getting at is that I wouldn't leave a day job and do this full time because I don't think I can get away with it for very long, plus I don't have a trustworthy network of folks I can sell to.

Selling stuff online is definitely something worth for me to look into. It can be my side thing, since I'm too comfortable to leave my day job (it pays decently).

But as for selling to someone in-person, I just wouldn't know where to meet people unless it's from local forums. Other than that, the only people I know is the folks I work with and they're straight folks, not into buying from "alternate" sources. I'd have a lot of explaining to do.

I am not a booster. I am not even that active a lifter. However, my lifts are high in value.

I worked like you did for a few years. Luck, karma whatever you want to call it led me to a buyer who was upfront about what he wanted to pay and he and I both knew what the game was.

If you get real lucky your partner will become your partner in crime. I build friends following the bushido code. Very different style but my friends are solid. I could make an entire post about this.

Kudos! I had a similar idea but the big blue hardware store in my state (well some of them) sell Yeti coolers and that’s what I was wanting to climb the fence to grab. However, I was wanting someone to drive me but I could not find anyone. I think a similar method that’s maybe not as risky or difficult would be to cut a hole in the fence somewhere that is inconspicuous
