Two people walk in seperately. The first one asks for help choosing a laptop. The 2nd guy declines assistance and asks to just look around. After answering the sales person's questions First guy asks them to bring out the laptop and then agrees to buy. He then asks for an accessory. When the associate walks in the back to get the accessory first guy walks over to the iphone section and the 2nd guy walks over grabs the laptop and walks out. The first guy isn't paying attention. When the sales guy brings the requested accessory the laptop is gone. Will this work? Thoughts appreciated

I remember a crime ring doing something like this with iPads at Walmart a few years back. They got caught, but only after they made off with a fuckton of iPads.

What are you going to do if the employee just carries the laptop back with them while they get the accessory? AFAIK, stores that carry items like that train their employees not to leave them on the counter unattended for any reason. I don't know about Apple stores, but this def wouldn't work for a console at Game Stop.

So you're saying you think it will work? And if the guy takes the laptop with him the game is up. Try again I guess. Idk. I'm not sure if it'll work it not but I see little risk. And, in my apple store experience it may work. Ty
