Lots of experience emerging from the woodwork - I like it! I want to know how you have the patience for resale. I was annoyed anytime I tried to sell something I paid legit money for let alone things I got for free.

Well in my area phone cases have seemed to sell fast when I sell them. I can go in Sams Club and Walmart and jack about 5 at a time and resell for about 30 to 40 bucks depending on the case.

Also, my local sams club has Lifeproofs just sitting out there so one time I was able to jack about 10-12ish and I resold then all for about 50 dollars give or take a few dollars

Run like hell. If somehow I do actually get apprehended I’m not saying anything to anyone until I speak to a lawyer.

Ok STUPID QUESTION pls dont call me dumb but I've been wondering this I kinda have an idea but, what is the actual importance of cameras do they even matter what is their purpose if you get stuff and go out what is them having you on camera going to do

SemiproRain995 OP wrote

Cameras are very important. If they catch you on camera concealing or just walking out it’s just as bad if LP see you do it in person. You can be apprehended just based on if they see you on camera conceal and attempt to leave. If you conceal only do it in blind spots. If you aren’t in a blind spot your honestly just better off doing a grab and go imo. If they have you on camera they can case build against you, and they can send your face to other stores. Let it be known if they see you on camera concealing your pretty well detected. All of this is assuming the cameras are actually monitored because a decent amount of stores actually do monitor them. On the other hand some stores don’t monitor and you don’t have anything to worry about them seeing you on tape unless someone in person detects the theft. Then they will review the tape. There is a master list of stores that say what stores watch cameras and which ones don’t but I’d take the master list with a grain of salt. It’s all area specific on what security is in place. There is three Walmart’s in my area and each one has different kinds of cameras. You just have to scope the store out and find out what is up

They have to maintain camera contact after seeing you conceal because if you drop the merch and they stop you trying to leave and you don’t have any merch that’s bad news for them. In general being caught by actual LP or Plaincloths LP is a hell of a lot worse than being detected on camera

Here is my list of questions:

  1. What was your largest haul

  2. Do you lift for profit

  3. What genre of items do you lift (for profit if yes), & what are a few of these items

  4. What stores do you recommend

  5. Most memorable shoplifting experience

What was your most brazen lift?

SemiproRain995 OP wrote (edited )

Well, I’ve had some big lifts but probably the one what was the most thrilling and careless was about 3 years ago. I used to play a card game called Magic the Gathering. Card prices are fucking crazy and I was hell bent of having a good deck so a buddy and I went into a Walmart and put about anywhere from 15-18 fat packs in a cart and straight up wheeled it out the front door during the middle of the day. This was before fat packs were source tagged and my Walmart then didn’t even have a receipt checker so we got away with over 500 dollars worth of sealed product Needless to say we did not open them. We resold then and took the money to buy good cards for our modern decks

That's awesome. I steal fat packs all the time, and it drives me nuts how they're source tagged. I usually stash them in my bag, though. Can get out with ~5 at a time from any one walmart. It takes a little longer, but upon realizing they are source tagged now I started taking a knife and cutting off the plastic wrap and opening it up to take out the source tag. All I ever leave behind is empty plastic wrap. Sometimes if I'm trying to get more than 5 packs worth and I'm at a walmart where I never intend to come pack to I'll just open it up and take the booster packs out of them and stash the packs in my bag and leave the packaging sitting around.

I don't understand why manufacturers would offer to source tag products, this reduces shoplifting meaning the company will have to buy less. AKA the manufacture makes less by a small margin (which adds up to millions). If there is demand the stores will have to order more no matter what, so I simply wouldn't offer source tagging.

MtG cards used to be gold to steal. Now it's just so much harder to swipe. Appreciate your great advice.

What do you usually lift to sell?

SemiproRain995 OP wrote

Shoot, honestly whatever I can get when the opportunity arises. Mostly I find myself jacking otter boxes and life proof cases as in my area that are easy as hell to jack and I can turn them around for a decent profit.

When stealing cloths with magnets. When you remove the security tag with magnet will the suecurity tags alarm go off?

1

SemiproRain995 OP wrote

Nope. Once that tag is removed you are pretty well set to just conceal and leave. I have read though that some higher end brands have rfid tags sewn into the clothing somewhere, but this isn’t the case in my area because there isn’t any super high end stores

I use a Neomycin N52 rare earth magnet most of the time. I used to have a S3 key but I misplaced it a few weeks ago so I use my backup and honestly it works just as good as the S3 key. Try this one, but be careful this thing is strong and dangerous if not used wisely. These will take off any tag on clothing, it will take off hard tags, it will open the small and large alpha cases. It should open spider wraps but I haven’t fucked with those since I lost my S3

Those replacement S3 Keys from China are amazing, they work exactly like the real thing I've had the same one for over a year & it hasn't let me down once. I have another 2 as back up though I hope I'll never need to use them. In regards to the real S3 key, just sell them on eBay they go for quite a bit & there is no point in keeping them if the alternatives will do just as good.

are small shops much harder than big shops because a camera could voer the whole toom?

SemiproRain995 OP wrote

Man, it really just depends on the store. Dollar general is a hell of a lot easier than say Victoria Secrets. Generally speaking I try to stay away from small stores in my area because they are in the mall and my mall has a very high percentage of shrinkage so there is always like 1-3 cops just chilling and there is a lot of mall security and PTZ cameras. I just normally stick to Walmart, Sams Club, and Academy Sports

SemiproRain995 OP wrote (edited )

This is how I’ve flown under the radar for years and probably jacked over 20,000 dollars worth of stuff all together is I don’t take risks like going in the mall and jacking shit from target or any of the small stores. They have loss prevention that is fucking dedicated, and I hear all the time on the news of some dumbass trying to steal from our mall

I've heard some shit about the domes in Wal-Mart not actually being their cameras. Also I almost got caught on camera concealing by one of those they've put in the end of aisles near toys and stuff. So any tips on blind spots to conceal in for Wal-Mart? I try to find blind spots based on the black domes. Is that right or have I been fucking up?

Well I know for sure I’ve cleared 20k since the beginning of 2017. Honestly since I began lifting I can’t even give you a legit total without lying because I honestly don’t know. When I first started I was jacking so much shit that I didn’t even need or want and I didn’t keep track of what I was even lifting. I’d get tons of expensive shit and I even have some stuff away or sold it. Some I kept. I then realized that I should jack for profit so I began to do it as a side job.

SemiproRain995 OP wrote

This is not without saying I have jacked from target before I just don’t do it often

i usually target the large chain stores attached to the malls they are the easiest to lift, compared if they were a standalone store.

Dollar General difficulty varies widely. I know one or two DG's that are a piece of cake to lift from. There's one in a slightly larger city that's a bit tougher. Then there's another one where I wouldn't even think of lifting, as there are so many cameras, and towers at the door. It must be a high-shrink area.

Thanks for posting!

What can you say about certain types of cameras and specifically targeting and finding blind spots? Are there commons areas in any store where a blind spot would be? The larger dome type seem like they're put anywhere, but only see in one direction and only to a degree. Clearly there are more advanced ones with better capabilities than others and it depends on the store.

If a store seems to not have a lot of staff or be very busy, would you just lift, conceal (intentionally speaking smaller things) from anywhere and go? Or do you always conceal in a blind spot?
