I've been shoplifting for about a month now, and I've come to a realisation that it likely will never be easier than it is now because I've never been made, or suspected, or questioned about shoplifting as of yet. All the news articles I read about people having trouble with the police have often had multiple arrests already, and are well known to multiple stores, so keeping myself off the radar seems of the utmost importance.
To that end, I've been thinking how to change my look so that if I am made at any point, they won't have an accurate description of me, so I can come back another time and/or avoid police.
For example, I'm bald, and clean shaven every day, but purchasing a fake wig might go far in throwing LE off track. Taking it a step further, a fake silicone nose, fake beard/moustache makes for an interesting thought experiment. Today, I checked out the semi expensive silicone masks you can get off aliexpress, but they seem to give off the uncanny valley effect, so I think it will attract too much attention. Same could be said for fake henna face tattoos.
Any thoughts on this? I can't be the only one who has considered this type of approach.
I've been giving it more thought as at first I have been only taking food, primarily meat and other food, as it's an instant saving because I don't have to spend my own money, but as I'm growing more confident, I want to branch out to shoplifting more items, amusingly, I somewhat see this as a potential business venture.
