I own a laundry facility that I wash all my money with. Under the laundry facility I have a full meth lab that I then funnel the proceeds through a chain of chicken restaurants I own.

Seriously, go get a business license, if US fill out the SS-4 form, go to a bank and open a business account. If you are only talking about 12k a year, just deposit that into any account but never more than $9,999.99. If you are going to be making monthly deposits I would spend 5-6 bucks and buy a USPS Money Order and deposit the money order.

Lets start with phones. This is going to be a no go. You might can get one phone. And the only way you are going to get this is snatching it out of an employees hand and running out the store. Expect your bolo to be everywhere. And snatching it will also get you an assault charge.

Second best scenario is you break into a mall kiosk location or break into a store. For shits and giggles we are going to assume you are successful. You will have the full attention of the burglary depart and they will inspect for forensic details. Now you have a couple dozen phones that you can't sell because the IMEI is blacklisted by every US carrier and expect Deutsche Telekom, Vodaphone, and every carrier that SoftBank owns will also blacklist the phone. If by chance you are super pro and you have fences in the Middle East then hey success for you. If you don't this is a worthless idea.

Consoles is a completely different game. You do this the day before, Black Friday and the day after you should have good luck. You will need a small team. You want a driver ( with fakel tags), a guy for diversion at the door, and you; who I assume will be the point guy who grabs the consoles and attempts a walk out. Be sure to have store bags. You might can also pull this off by buying a console a day before and try using the bag and receipt to walk out. All and all this is high risk for a few hundred dollar items that are going to be watched, high risk factor, and the consoles will likely be blacklisted on XBox live and PSN.

Given that both items are highly trackable, don't be a dick and sell them to people who do not know what they are getting into. If you can sell them under these fell out the back of the truck good luck.

Visit a few other stores and see if you get the same response. A sample size of one store is not enough to make a prediction.

Tools are well worth it. Especially socket sets.

Brake pads and rotors are almost always behind the counter. Windshield wipers are like 20 bucks and bulky. Oil??? really. Catch the latest sale where you get 5 quarts for $20.

  1. PD will do a stakeout. Deliver drops the box off. They have video of everything. You then claim DNA... busted.
  2. GPS unit is hidden somewhere. You claim DNA. Tracking shows the box is in your residence... busted

Fucking hope it is not USPS who delivers the package, the package traverses state lines, and you claim DNA... That is federal time. USPS has their own investigation team with with some of the widest and deepest jurisdictions in the nation.

I could continue on. DNA is worth it for a one shot mass claim. Make the largest damn order you can with the widest number of companies and then claim DNA. Don't repeat this again for a couple years.

I burned an Amazon, Newegg, Microcenter, Tiger Direct and several other accounts a couple days before Christmas. Total delivery of around 12k. Filled out my little police report and either got a second delivery of the item or credited back to my card.

That is an asshole move unless you can guarantee it is a storage unit for a business. If you are near a port of entry 100% don't do this. Most immigrants will put their life belongs into storage until they find a permanent living situation.

Can it work; yes. Will it be productive; more than likely not. You are robbing blind. You could spend a lot of time breaking in and looking for something of value and it turns up it is just someone storing documents and old shitty toys. BE is investigated more seriously than lifting.

You would do better to drive to another state, make a fake looking badge, tailgate someone into the business and pickup a few computers and leave.

If you have time wait until the week before and after black Friday. You should start trolling BB now and find the stores with the weakest security. Look for stores in that leave high end products out without any spiderwrap.

You can easily get a laptop during this time. It is risky but doable.

And /u/LiftyLoo_FU1349 is correct to just lift small items. A laptop you are going to use for school is worth buying legit and having a warranty.

What kind of sales do you have?

I hate to tell you don't rely on hard drives for your future cash flow. I was big into drives about 3 years ago. Then Fry's started to go downhill. It was nice picking up drives for 300-400 when NVMe first came out and SSDs were just sitting on shelves.

You really have to hustle to make a grand a week doing just drives.

Walgreens is second to target in ORC detectives.

They hire retired FBI and a few years ago one of their senior executives was ex-Mossad.

In addition they buy all of their real estate and each store operates debt free. That leaves them an enormous cash hoard to spend on policing.

Nothing like that on my side of town.

Walmart has completely revamped their physical security for devices. I also see more people using more advanced security.

This will all change when the holiday season gets a little closer.

It will still depend. Follow your tracking. In the previous years Amazon would ship using their services part way then turn over to USPS or UPS for last stage delivery.

If you want to do DNA invest in a hidden motion activated camera. That way you can see exactly what the carrier did and you can use that create your DNA story.
