I don't spend my own money except in my local neighborhood.

I never purchase while lifting. Rule number #1 is to leave no trace.

I am in and out of a store in under five minutes; usually three. If the store is coordinated enough to catch me it is not a store I am lifting from.

This is a terrible idea:

  1. You are lifting a product that is highly stolen and are immediately watched.
  2. Garden can have cameras.
  3. Lowe's have overnight stockers. You are not guaranteed that garden will be empty.
  4. Once all the night stockers are on shift they lock the doors. You will trigger an alarm unless you know how their systems work.

Lifting is not that difficult. There is no real thinking out of the box. There are only about a half dozen ways to lift. The only thing that changes is scale.

Why not kick the habit and use a recreational drug that you can grow or cultivate?

Be careful lifting when the habit is fueled by drugs. You greatly increase the chances you will make a critical mistake.

I would disagree with you. If you take the time the location can be as familiar as you make it. It all depends on how much time and effort you want to spend looking into the area.

The best way to repeat is to repeat on a single product. Visit ever store you know is 'safe' and clear out the material. Don't touch that chain of stores for a year or more.

Eg.. Two years ago I picked up a hoard of Google Hubs. Spent the entire day and collected over a 100 of them. There is no need to visit HD again.

You should always shift what you are lifting.

You are pushing your luck. Standard rule is hit a place and not return for at least 6 months.

Know way to tell if they have noticed unless you can compare online inventory... You take x item and constantly check the online inventory for when it updates.

Do not use SCO. That is the worst place to lift from.

Look up your states shoplifting statue and see what the felony amount is. If you are under the felony amount I doubt they will do anything. This is not an absolute.

The reason I feel this is low risk is no one took your picture and wrote down your license information. There are several chains of custody that is broken that the DA may refuse to prosecute.

Do expect that stores around your area will have your picture on file.

Wait until Black Friday and the holidays. Most places will put speakers outside of a case. You will also find speakers at non-traditional locations: Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, Bed Bath Beyond...

This appears to be a good idea but you are wrong... at least in relation to stores: Target, Walmart, Kroger, Meijers, Wegmans....

Many retail stores subscribe to StopLift, or some other software image system, and heavily track SCO. The people at the lone system may not be watching you but they can very clearly see your transactions. The the most quantity and quality of cameras are positioned over shelf checkout. Lastly, most stores catch the majority of shoplifting at shelf checkout.

Ignore the fucking guide. That thing should actually be removed. No one guide is going to be able to give you advice for you exact city and the specific store you are targeting.

Treat every camera as if it is real. You should have this mindset for every job. Assume the store has LP unless you have verified they do not or that they are not on shift. The guide will lead you into a dangerous false sense of security.

I don't have much advice for your route.

I just bought the S3 and a 10k and 16k gauss magnet off alibaba for under 30 bucks. Later on I found the 16k was pretty much a waste of money. If the item I have will not release under the 10k magnet I just dump the item. The 16k is over a pound in weight and very bulky. The 10k can fit on my keychain and does not look too out of place.

This poster is full of shit. Their posts are shit.

Read this if you want to learn what to expect from being a drug mule. If you don't feel like reading it you will make around $1,600 per trip. http://ftp.iza.org/dp8224.pdf

Don't be a drug mule unless this is the absolutely last scam you can think of.

You should have stopped after your last comment and edited it to call me a bitch.

You are both naive and ignorant if you really think you gave legit advice...

WTF was OP going to do to find a drug operation? Google that shit and map to a location?

Someone working as a drug mule in South or Central America is fucked. They signup for this and they are transporting drugs worth more than 2x their annual salary. The trafficker knows where every member of the mule's family lives. Worse case scenario they get tortured, their family gets shot, they end up in generational slavery, and if they actually successfully make it across the border they make a grand carrying 50k worth of drugs. They then do this risky as shit ten more times before they can seriously think about making five figures.

Go the fuck back to reddit and taunt r/lossprevention. Your shitty advice is going to get someone killed or seriously fucked up!

Get the fuck out of here...

Follow your own shitty advice: >>> If you are from Latin America you should transport cocaine and weed to someone who is from Country where drug prices are high and after he sells you get 50%. You would earn 55k from 1kg of cocaine and 10k from weed but depends on who you work with and how long he needs to sell it.

WTF happened to /f/illegalism...

It is a lot easier to just open a business account, apply for a business license in a known all cash industry, and then just deposit cash and money orders. You can also open a dozen different bank accounts, deposit smaller amounts of cash into each account, then have those accounts pay for a money order that you deposit into your business account.

Another option is to just buy a bunch of prepaid cards, add cash to them, and use the prepaid cards to live on.
