Reply to Self-checkouts at the grocery store: Ringing more expensive items up as cheaper ones like produce- does anyone else do this??? by purplespaceship
So many people do this, it's a trick as old as self checkouts themselves

You should read the wiki page man. But a hook detacher will work wonders.

They have signs near the change room basically instructing you to keep your own underwear on underneath pairs that you are trying on. They were male briefs.
No idea, some LP let their jobs go to their heads and let themselves think that they're always right

This actually works really well using a condom instead of a rubber band. They tend to be able to stretch more and are quite thick if you don't unroll them

Some ink tags introduced in Australia recently also set off alarms, not sure for the US though

I know all Oral B branded electric tooth brushes and replacement heads are source tagged inside the plastic hidden at the front bottom.
Nope, never. I don't think I was acting sketchy either, maybe they were being pushed to make a quota.

If you've been chased I'd steer clear for at least 6 months
I was planning on lifting some Calvin Klein underwear from a department store. I was in the change rooms and I decided against taking the 4 pairs i wanted, only took 1 and hid them folded up in my own underwear and just left the other items in the change rooms. As I left the change room an LP officer went into the room I was in, and I just calmly walked to the exit. Before I got there the store manager and another LP officer physically blocked me from leaving and demanded that I empty my bag (I had just finished work and it had my uniform and other personal items in it. I complied because fuck them, they won't find shit, and can have a bad stop and get in shit. After I emptied my bag and they couldn't find anything they called the police and told them that they were certain I was hiding merchandise on my person. Skip forward 10 minutes, the police come and I tell them I'd be happy to go to a private area and take off my shirt/pants to prove I wasn't hiding anything. Sure enough, they didn't find anything. I was let go, no apology made.
It really scared me at how reckless I was. I am currently at uni, and the field I'm going into requires a clean history. So you can understand how much this could have affected me.

Always trust your gut. If it doesn't feel 100% right, drop anything you've got and GTFO. Your intuition is normally right, and you really don't want to be caught.
Also, avoid lifting from the same store often. Try to leave at least a week or two between small lifts, and several months between larger ones.

Lots of questions, but here we go.
1- I would arguably try to stay away from malls unless you are experienced. They not only have store specific LP, but also mall security. If you get banned from one store you will most likely get banned from the entire mall.
2- They will either tell you that the ban is like a year, or life. Just wait several months and they'll probably forget your face.
3- Is this as a couple to lift? Or a couple after the ban? If it's to lift, then sure. If it's after the ban, make sure they know that you've been banned for lifting or that could make some real shitty situations.
4- I answered this on a previous comment of yours.
5- Can't help you here, not from the US.

It's because they have great resell value. They retail at ~$170 USD, And can be boosted for $130-$140 quite easily if they are unopened.
Reply to How do some of you manage to steal hundreds of dollars worth in one go? by redditsucksassbigtime
It depends on what's being lifted. You could lift two items of clothing worth a total of $200+, or a singular piece of electronics worth several hundred. It really is dependant on WHAT you lift.

You could wear them under your clothes and walk out. Make sure the aren't visible at all, all tags are removed, and you basically GTFO as soon as you can
Reply to First time shoplifter, is this a good plan?? by Kiidlocs
Sounds like you'll get caught tbh. This isn't a great plan, as you need to spend too much time in the store, especially after going to electronics. Trying to take so much so early on without any experience is how newbies get caught. Start small, maybe some clothes or candy bars and work your way up.

The black tags at Myer aren't ink tags, the will set off the towers. Some items have hidden tags sewn into them, depends on the brand.
Buy one online.
Reply to questions on removing tags by thiefhuncho
Rubber bands are good for most clothing tags, just wrap it around the pin enough times to create the pressure required to remove the tag
