Use cash for transaction but in theory, would be fine, especially at Walm@art.

After a few comments here (and the wonderful World Wide Web), I’m now pretty paranoid that Walm**t is/can/will track the double return back to my debit (bank) card (really wish I used cash at the start of this venture).

Has this happened to anyone else here (or that you know of)? Getting hit with a return fraud charge, well after the fact, once they’ve done their investigation?

So... I did think about this but not thoroughly. I used a debit card for the original purchase (when I requested the gift receipt), I took the item and returned it within minutes and the $$ went back on my debit card (and I kept the gift receipt).

That being said, when I did the return at another location (within the same day), I had no problems when they issued me the gift card (for full value) because I presented the item (originally lifted) + gift receipt.

Perhaps because i did this between 2 locations, the POS systems didn’t or couldn’t sync up?

Should I actually be concerned that there is a flag in the system now to investigate a return, once on original receipt and once on gift receipt?

Couldn’t I also argue that I actually had this item (for whatever reason) and when I tried to return with no receipt, I was declined so I used this method to get a receipt only (as opposed to tying back to a lift)?

Update: talked to my guy who worked there for a couple years... they said in most cases, the consoles behind the glass are empty boxes - they keep all/most of the stock upstairs or in a separate room (similar to EB Game$/Game$top).

Your best bet for a Switch will be BB or Walbart.

Toys R Us will be added soon (I passed some infonto thief) but, I didn’t have intel on the lock cases. Let me see what I can dig up.

Scenario; someone walks in, grabs a cart, actually shops for a few groceries, etc. and at some point, puts something in the cart they have no intention of paying for (but it all looks natural).. are you following them at all? Do you follow them until they are in line to pay and then move on? (and said person decides to either conceal in line or, gives a BS story to cashier that they have to do an exchange/refund at customer service and then casually walk out with a receipt in hand but an item not paid for)?

Also, if a large/high-priced item (that is typically behind a locked cage) goes missing and staff realize later.. will they go back to watch camera footage to see how/when it went missing?

Thanks!
