Several “former Walmart LP” members here have said that these particular ones are fake, but that of course doesn’t necessarily mean it’s true, thus my question. These are not the ones that have a monitor nearby them. I’ve also put things in my bag in front of these types of cameras at about half a dozen different stores and have never had an issue, but that may have been luck on my part.

Where do you get masks, do you mean like face masks (silicone?) the ones that look sort of real and you can stick it over your face?

When you say ring your stuff up wrong, do you mean label switching? I do targets and have for years, but especially if it’s something like label switching I would space it out and/or alternate with other target stores too so it’s not just one that you’re regularly hitting. Self checkout is generally a terrible place to be lifting /discounting in that way, but I do it sometimes. I guess it would depend more on the specifics, how often you do it, how much $ you’re dealing with, what types of products etc

I can’t believe that you thought this was a good idea, let alone a “genius idea”. The way that you refer to yourself and repeatedly mention that you “think out all the details” is just a sign that you’re overly confident in yourself and I guess you think that other people don’t think about things when they lift.

I don’t use bikes but where I live in USA it’s common for people to walk out a fire exit with a new bike from various big chain stores.

The problem with what you’re asking is you keep suggesting you’ll be doing whatever “consistently” and regularly. That alone is a red flag. I lift from Tag et and Wol mort stores several times a week every week, but never in a routine, predictable manner. That’s a recipe for getting caught.

Better to rotate between several stores, and even possibly look into small disguise aids if you plan to be going to the same stores somewhat often. I keep several wigs and fake pairs of eyeglasses and hats in my car under my seat in case I want to try to not look like whatever I looked like the last time I was at a place.

Some of the more ghetto wol mort stores where I live have policies like that; I’ve noticed it varies immensely depending on how upscale the surrounding area is or is not.

One store here will even go review the surveillance videos of when a purchase was originally made if the receipt is from their own store and they suspect you found the receipt on the ground. Happened to a friend of mine recently... they actually reviewed the video of whoever made the original purchase for his receipt. Shits wild.

She might have been bluffing to see if her suspicions were right. If you felt up to it you could complain to corporate about her confronting you, etc if you think you can do a good pissed off snobby rich person impersonation. I do a fair amount of regular lifts from the chain pet stores here too (same ones), but I try to rotate which stores I go to so they won’t easily recognize me and possibly associate me with certain items I regularly try to take. If you think you can pull it off I think it’s a great investment to get some cheapish $10 wigs on Amaz ø n or sth, combined with face masks, sometimes some eyeglasses, and a beanie (beanies make fake wigs not look fake) it really really helps if you want to go back somewhere but don’t want to be recognized.

I switch labels with plants. Pretty much the only thing I do label switching for; I browse the garden center for what I really want and then pretend I’m still browsing for plants when I’m actually looking for barcode stickers that are coming off of something cheap. Then I go to self checkout and leave the plants in my cart and use the handheld scanner thing to scan my replaced barcode. Just don’t be stupid with it, I.e., a $100 tree with a price tag for a $1 tiny sproutling. But like $5-6 for a $30-50 plant has been working well for me. If I can remember, I try to keep the stickers with me for next time and re-sticky them in advance.

Well for one thing, most workers seem to like having their work keys attached to a belt loop or necklace thing; I can always hear a worker approaching an aisle by how they go "ching ching" when they walk.

And besides that, there's a million reasons this is a bad idea. People have tried it where i live before, lots of times. They pretty much always fail at it because the employees dont recognize the 'new guy' and usually start trying to chat with him.
