Lol. I did this once.

Brought a 1TB hard drive. Then 2 weeks later brought a 4 TB har drive (all cash)

Then stuff the 1TB in 4TB box and return the 4TB.

Basically I got 4TB for the price of 1TB.

1TB was $55? 4TB was $120+ lol

Yeah. They did open it to see if there was a hard drive inside.

But on the corner in the back. Is where it tells the TB amount. But they didn’t look into that

My Walmart calls someone from electronic to check all returns but they check for cords. You might get away with it but some guy just got busted for stripping pcs and returning them. News story said it near 100k in loss. Golden rule: don't get greedy

I saw that news article. He got away with it for 18 months before he got caught, though. I just want to do it on one item.

Yeah. That is crappy. If they’re going to strip. Might as well take and replace.

Like the best I can think you can take from PC. Is DDR4 which is like 80 for 8GB.

For me. I’ll strip them and replace them with like DDR2 or 3.

But honestly. I can see anything valuable in Walmart PC
