Thoughts on this method?

Submitted by lift_fever in Shoplifting

Saw this method posted on the old subreddit. I don’t have plans for this method anytime soon but here it is.

This method is for Walmart, and is for lifting anything unconcealable.

  1. Buy item and take it to your car.
  2. Use the receipt to walk out with another one of that item. If the receipt checker checks your receipt there is no reason to say you were shoplifting since you have proof of purchase. Also don’t use the same exit you left through when you were buying it.
  3. Return one of them to another location.

You could also do this with a buddy. One of you would buy the first one and the other would lift the second one.

Are there any weaknesses in this method? Anyone ever try it? I don’t have a car or a lifting buddy so this is hypothetical (for now 😏)

(This works better with 2 people because they will be far less suspicious if 2 different people are seen going in and out the door with the same product.)

1: Take your first person and go buy the item and take it to your car. (remember which door you went out of -IE Left or Right side of the store and tell the other person this before they go back in-)

2: Now the second person can bring back in the receipt (in his pocket), Go and slide another product onto his cart, walk casually to the other door that you previously did not go out of. (staple the receipt or tape it to the box to make it look more official)

3: Show the receipt to the door man and walk out. (try and look away from the cameras near the exit doors or look way down at your cell phone, (These cameras have a very poor resolution)

4: Go to another store and return the product and get your money back.

BONUS: Bring your kids with you and you have an almost 100% chance at getting out. They will never question a person with his/her kids.

TIPS: Do this in the early AM before noon or after 9PM. This is because they closely monitor the security cameras at peak hours from noon to 7PM.

EXTRA TIP: This method is 100% likely to work without fail if done on black friday or around very busy times like Christmas. The associates are so busy helping other people they will not recognize you among the hundreds of other people in the store.

On black Friday, I just straight walked out. I had a massage chair that was massive, but they were so busy no one even said anything to me.

Not necessarily true. I got stopped with my dad (I was 14 or so) and we aint even black. I wouldnt rely on it.

It would be best with 2 people. If lp is watching tho they will catch you.
