I bought one and it’s hit or miss for me. I think I only successfully used it once, on the flat round ink tags at K0hl5. Got about 100 in clothes out of it so it paid for itself and then some!

Talk to me about credit card scams, I have the personal information of 4-5 people and want to open cards in each of their names. I’m not sure how to open accounts, use them online, etc. If you teach me, I’ll hook you up.

My Christmas miracle lift. A few days away from Christmas I was broke and due to falling on hard times had to pay bills instead of buying the kids gifts.

I went to T@rgat with a f- it attitude because I was desperate and ashamed that I failed my family. So I did a kamikaze mission, grabbed a cart, and proceeded to walk isle to isle filling the cart with everything from toys, electronics, clothes, even food for Christmas dinner.

With my head held high and zero fucks, I then walked out of the store and to the car, the cart was literally packed. I honestly didn’t care and I just went for it. A weird feeling, cause I felt no fear or hesitation.

To top it off, after shoveling everything in the trunk, I walked back into the store to self checkout, smiled at the clerk and told her my bag broke and asked if I could grab one... I of course grabbed 5 or 6. I parked a few blocks away and bagged the items. With the electronics, lego, etc, I estimated I grabbed well over 1000 that day.

I’ve never told my wife or anybody but it was my proudest and insane lift. I of course never went back..

They were my ‘go to’ for video games and blue rays. Over the course of 3-4 years and a dozen stores I liberated over 2 dozen games and a dozen or so blue rays sets.

With an S3 key I was in and out fast, but I knew my luck would run out. If their LP is as good as everyone says, they probably have a god tier profile on me and we’re waiting for the next time I grabbed 3 60 dollar games.

Glad I quit when I did.

Show me how to open the pataco turtle, commonly used at L0w3s and I’ll be impressed. A link to the correct magnet and I’ll be blown away!

I did a full cart walkout a few months ago and the last item I took was a rotisserie chicken. I even made sure to bag it separate in a paper bag (placed nicely next to the chickens). The minute the employees were distracted and no customers around I walked on out.

If I was you, I’d go big or go home. Instead of stressing over one chicken, fill up a cart or hand basket. It makes you look like your legitimately shopping and it’s worth your while.

I’m almost certain this channel is a parody. A gas station with its own website, Instagram, Twitter, and of course, YouTube with a million views per video.

The 1020p quality cameras and crack team of spec-ops cashiers are a dead giveaway. I wouldn’t be surprised if they hire locals to ‘lift’ then make their hilarious commentary while they edit each video.

Only thing to learn from these videos is making money on social media...from a gas station. I give them props though, it’s a good hustle.

I fuched up a lift at L0wes because I couldn’t get the green pataco alarm tags off, still researching that..

Anyways, I was so mad I went to m1chels and grabbed a 206 dollar cricket machine. They were stored in line near the register, so I wheeled up a cart, loaded one in, then wheeled it out entrance when no one was looking.

I can’t sell it to save my life! I thought they were popular damn it!

If you are in a place like Wally or T@rgat, go from electronics, to toys...to groceries. If some ‘random shopper’ follows you across the store, that’s a good giveaway.

Remember that they often work in teams, so there should be a couple obvious people that stand out. Walk around, shop, pick things up, set them down, watch their reactions.

Of course by that time you should know to abort mission, unless you are running interference for a partner 😉

T@rg@t used to be my ‘go to’ as far as video games. I could walk in, use an S3 key to grab 2 games out of the display cases and be out in 10 minutes or less.

My questions are, how does the electronics clerk or AP know the games are missing? I often see empty display cases when I go in and I wonder how long it takes for anyone to ask if they were sold or stolen?

Also, with empty video game display cases, when do you start watching video? How far back to you watch? When does case building start? Do you work with other stores nearby?

Do you print/post pictures of perps seen opening display cases with an S3? Lastly, how often does that happen?

Lol. Walk me through the process the second a clerk says “I put a game in the display case and now it’s gone but I never sold it?”

Research and Recon. Research starts by reading the wikis so generously provided by the fam here. There is a lot you can learn from other lifters, videos on YouTube, even from forums related to LP/AP. The security device manufacturers even have sites you can check out.

Recon is visiting the store(s) and checking the layout, staffing, blindspots, area of town, etc. I’ve noticed each store is always different, some don’t emphasize security as much as customer service. Learn what security devices they use and how to defeat them.

Lastly, know your own strengths and weaknesses. Can you do social engineering? Can you do slight of hand? Do you have the testicular fortitude to fill up a cart and walk out?

I recently spent 200 dollars on a ‘collectors edition’ video game you could only get through online pre-order. I still feel like shite about spending that money!

I was so mad I lifted 2 additional copies of the game 60 each) to sell and give as a gift. This item I bought wasn’t stealable, lol, so I kinda had to buy it..

Yeah I hate buying certain items, especially knowing how easy it is to just take.

I lived in a city years ago that had a great flea market. A lot of the stalls were fronts for ORC rings, but it was nice to be able to buy razors, hair stuff, cologne, etc for dirt cheap.

I’m forced to lift my own supplies now but eating a churro and drinking a Mexican Coke on a hot Saturday morning while buying stolen Merch was satisfying!

99% of what I lift is stuff I need and use, but can’t afford. For example, lately I’ve been lifting carts full of food in order to free up money for bills.

Kids need clothes so I lift them. Yeah I lift video games for myself but I’d never be able to afford them in my current situation.

I do get a thrill from doing it, but having to lift 300 in food makes me feel shame too. A double edged sword I guess.

If I won the lottery I’d probably still lift, just not as often. I hate paying for PS4 games for some reason?

A 55’ Sony 4K tv. I didn’t steal it perse, I bought it in cash from Breast buy, put a 42’ broken Vizeo I got off the curb into the box, sealed it and returned it. Customer service was so busy they didn’t give 2 Fuchs.

Some poor sap is in for a rude surprise, lol. Oh, it was 1200 or 1500, my entire rent, lol

In the past month I’ve done 3 full cart walkouts from grocery stores. Each cart saved me about 250-300 in food expenses. Today I lifted a little hand cart packed with food.

It’s tax season, I got bills and expenses I can barely afford, saving money on food has helped a lot. It’s better than lifting hard drives and reselling, etc.

This weekend I’m about to lift a shite-ton of clothes for the kids. Lifting has helped me cut a lot of corners financially, I just try not to abuse it.

Stay safe!

I ran a train on T@rgat for over 5 years, 20+ different stores across 3 states. More video games and blue rays that I can count among other stuff.

I am almost certain they are/were building an epic case against me but I decided to give them a wide berth. I shop as an honest citizen now but I won’t dare lift from t@rgat, too many of our bros have been taken out by them. They definitely don’t play around. I consider myself lucky to have rode them hard and lived to gloat...

About 5 years ago. It was 3 days from Christmas, I had maybe 20 dollars, and NO gifts for my wife and kids. I had promised my wife I had been saving money for gifts but we were hurting financially, I just couldn’t admit it.

I basically went on a ‘suicide’ mission to T@rget. Grabbed a cart, went to electronics, grabbed dvds, games (with S3 key), toys, clothes, I even went to groceries and went nuts.

After I filled my cart, I took my jacket off, threw it over the cart full of shite, and with my head held high, heart racing, I walked out of the store!

I figure I lifted about 500 in LEGO, toys, electronics, clothes, and assorted loot. LOL, I even lifted the wrapping paper. My proudest and embarrassing lift.

I lifted one from Wally, I didn’t realize it had an RF tag inside the box until I set the alarm off while walking out the door.

The geezer standing there asked me to stop but I pretended to be talking on the phone and kept walking.

It was for personal use, next time I’ll take it out of box before taking it out of the store.

Good article, fam. Definitely worth a read for those of us who take the risk..

If I make it to the sidewalk and to the parking lot, there is no way in hell im returning into the store if an lp steps in front of me. I’m not going to fight, but I am not even going to acknowledge the schmuck, just keep on walking.

I hope it never comes to that... stay safe!
