Yes, some brands see RF tags into their clothing. It is typically going to be seen in nicer clothes like Abercrombie and Fitch, Banana Republic, etc. I’ve even heard that Old Navy actually has sewn in tags in some clothes, but I’ve never seen that.

The easiest way to get around that is to use a booster bag.

I have a feeling we will be seeing sewn in tags more often in the future as it seems to be a growing in popularity.

Making a stop without all of their steps is risky, but if they are right, they most likely wouldn’t be fired. I’m not sure where you are getting your info on that.

Not to mention, even if they did get fired, you’d still be charged if you actually committed theft. Wildcard LP do exist. They don’t follow the rules. They don’t always last in the business, but if they can show you stolenfrom them, it won’t matter to the cops if they followed internal procedure.

Recommending items it difficult. I lift anything and everything. I’ve lifted things like Action Figures, portable hard drives, Blu Ray movies (4K), baseball cards, diapers, etc. I even lifting high end bed sheets for a while.

Doing this for a living requires me to always be on my toes and get anything I can get. I don’t stick to one thing. I mix it up.

My favorite method is to just drop the item in a bag I brought in and walk out. I can get larger items and don’t have to conceal at all. If there is a door checker and they ask for my receipt, I will either produce a fake receipt I have printed (if I planned this lift in advance, or just say no thank you and keep walking.

Digital movie codes. I can open the Blu Ray in store, take a picture of the code, and sell them online. I never have to even leave the store with merchandise. For new releases you can make about $5 a movie. So 2 movies at each Walmart and Target on my Norma route can get me a quick $50-$100 with little to no risk.

I have been “caught” several times, but the LP/AP didn’t have their steps and couldn’t really do anything.

I have never been arrested, but have been caught and charged with misdemeanor theft. It was dismissed in court.

I hit a lot of Walmart’s. That’s probably my main store, but I go everywhere from Target to Dillard’s.

Lifting method varies depending on what I’m getting and where. Sometimes I conceal, sometimes I walkout. Barcode swaps are good for bigger items but since I have to pay it makes the profit margin smaller.

My biggest hauls come from Walmart typically where I just use a fake receipt. The Walmart app allows you to view a receipt after purchase. I photoshop the image and then use a receipt printer to print the receipt. My printer is the same model Walmart uses, so it’s badically a replica. I also use Walmart receipt paper that I bought online through Craigslist from an employee.
