What he's trying to tell you is that the deeper into this "business" you get the more chances you'll be busted and the business will be closed. Common sense says it's better to have a small but functioning business for long term rather than a big one that will land you in jail

Alright I promised some disclosures so here we go

--> I know this is going to be a big surprise to possibly everyone here but indeed it is true that many cameras are fake and by many I mean at least two thirds of them. coincidentally, I found this out the day before my termination. Also, Home section has the best blindspots

--> you won't be chased by LP even if you visibly stock up and run out the store

-> even though they claim to they won't prosecute almost all cases of shoplifting. It usually stays at retail level and corporate never investigate shit they only visit like once a month

--> the alpha superink hard tags don't contain Ink

I can smell LP from the other side of the store but I never personally lifted anything before, hence why I'm trying to get into the mindset of a lifter and get the courage and charisma needed to pull it off. Often times I feel like I'm in great position to lift something but I always end up giving up before trying which is what I'm trying to change

Don’t do it, extremely risky especially in the US. You can get identity theft charges for this. If you knew what you were doing you wouldn’t be asking here so i suggest for you not to deal with this

Nobody saw him detagging and staging but I figured he would be back to claim his haul. He’s probably an amateur considering he went to our only actual blind spot, most lifters in our store are bold and would detag or conceal right in front of the cameras (most of them don’t come back for a while though)

This is actually a funny and good idea, maybe every time I find something staged I’ll replace it with a post it note with a smiley drawn on it or something. Haha

I mean he didn’t technically end up stealing anything but we warned him and if he comes back we’ll just set a camera for him and catch him on the floor and then he won’t be back

Either way there would be no way to know, since fake cameras could look 1:1 as real. If you look close enough at a dome at an angle you can spot the camera and the way it’s facing, but you would never know if it’s real or not.

highly unrecommended unless you have connections with people who would come back regularly. Too much risk from multiple points of view. Best way imo? Literally sell on eBay or Craigslist. (Make sure to use an anonymous account) that way you don’t take physical risks nor deal with shady people.(people who buy stolen merch are shadier than those who lift it trust me)

Back in the day it might have been true, but from my research and experience there is no such thing as fake cameras anymore with the major retailers. It’s just a tell tale. Same with hidden cameras. No such thing
