>>582324394 ex-thief here. Here's some tips >Don't use the same spot over and over, that's how I got caught >Find good blind spots. Make sure you can't see any cameras or 1-way mirrors >If a camera is not human-operated, there is only a 1/6 chance it can see you >Do your best to look like you aren't poor, do your best to not be sketchy at all. Confidence is key.
Tips for some specific stores: >Best Buy: Don't fuck with Best Buy >Target: Risky still. .Try to spot the fake cameras (you can see through the black bubbles a bit more than usual >KMart: Easiest place to steal shit from. They have dedicated LP, but they never have the best security systems in place >Wal-Mart: Somewhere in-between kmart and target. You have to be careful here, but it isn't impossible, due to sheer size of the store. >Mom and Pop stores: Don't steal from mom and pop stores. They are small businesses and theft hurts them badly.
Idk what it's like in other states, but in WA you can walk into best buy with a backpack, stuff that fucker with shit, put it back on your back and walk right out. Just make sure it's closed and on your back, they can't touch you but they can attempt to grab the bag that has merch in it, and if it's secured to your back they really can't do it. If they pulled it and you fell down, just play an injury I'm willing to bet you'd win because in WA, bestbuy policy is it is not considered theft until you leave the store and they cannot touch you after you leave
This is all true, but I probably typed it confusingly cause I'm drunk as fuck
>>582325840 coming from someone who works there and has spent alot of time as asset protection, don't fuck with those spider wraps as they are called. They send off a loud as fuck alarm and a cop will be there pretty damn fast at just about any location. This also coming from someone who has worked at several stores. Just go to walmart and watch out for secret shoppers, or get a real job like everyone else and earn your shit.
I used to steal magic cards from a lot of stores. Id just walk in, put them in my pockets and walk out. I'd get about 30-40 packs a time. Got about 60 once and had a few other friends getting some too. I went to target, walmart, meijer, pretty much anywhere. Never small game stores though. We just made sure no one was looking, filled our pockets, and walked out casually. Sometimes we bought things. We went to the stores all the time and walked around even if we weren't stealing and no one ever really noticed. They started putting sensors in the packs though and almost got us caught a few times but we just kept walking. Sometimes we'd put stuff in a cart and cover it with a jacket and then buy a few other things. Got a lot of bigger stuff that way.
>>582326134 I have walked away from LP. They didn't do shit to me. I had one big nigger LPO physically block me though and that's when I was caught.
Oh shit one thing I forgot to mention, those electronic wraps like >>582325840 mentioned, they aren't tension sensative. Cut a corner off a box and you can work it off quickly. Remove shit from boxes, that way you don't have an alarm tag.
On black friday a friend and I got 2 copies of the new pokemon and a copy of the new Call of Duty at Walmart. They had the shelves open and the videogames were hidden by a giant wall. All of the employees were around the front of the store.
You can take whatever you want from Lowes the employees aren't aloud to attempt to stop you and LP can only take your picture. They dont even call the cops. (I used to work at lowes and was told flat out that if I tried to stop anyone I would be fired)
Bath & body works. My ex used to work there it is their company policy not to stop shoplifters they will just let you walk right out the door. Funny enough though they search their employees belongings before they are allowed to leave.
OP - Agree with >>582324598 don't get in if you can but if you're dead-set on it, there's nothing i can do to stop you.
>>582325395 I have a sister who worked briefly at a Lowe's and someone did the UPC-switcheroo on a DeWalt tool and she didn't catch it. They likely picked her because she was a young girl and wouldn't pick up on it. She wasn't ruined for life, but still felt like shit because they took advantage of her. If you're going to do that, be a man and go to a lane where the checkout person appears to be a veteran. Take a chance.
Walmart - Take what you want, go to the bathroom, leave. Once you have walked into the bathroom, they technically no longer have visual of you and can't prove whether or not you dumped the merch off in a garbage or gave it to someone else. Sporting department tends to have less cameras/is a blind spot.
Also, watch the selfcheckouts. Sometimes those cashiers give zero fucks about what you're doing and just bypass all warnings.
>>582327173 I've stolen expensive tools (Craftsman mechanic kits, etc). The thing is, the place had a huge security hole that a lot of home depots and lowes' have. The fences in the outdoor section, you can slip shit through them. So easy.
>>582324394 We had a nignog in our store (AL) that tried to put a camera or something in his backpack on Thanksgiving when shit was busy. He got tackled by the cop inside, two employees, and the general manager. Shit was nuts yo.
I'm waiting to hear a legitimate scam and haven't really seen shit yet. Come one /b/ros. I have a foolproof scam that I have done and continue to do but I need some more decent contributions before I divulge my method.
>>582327201 can confirm, just left my job at lowes a month ago. about a month before i quit we had somebody stealing shit and all they could do was pass his picture around at the morning meeting and say if we saw him call upper management immediately. hell half the time people would walk out and the alarms rang nobody even gave a fuck. just turned off the alarm and went back to cashiering. for some ereason the one i worked at only had like 20 year old chicks as cashiers so they couldnt care less.
>>582327201 This, I worked there in high school and that other guys I worked with would joke that you could literally pick up anything in the store and yell "I AM STEALING THIS MOThERFUCKER" and walk out without anyone stopping you
>grab what you want >walk out It's that fucking simple. Employees used to stop people but they can't now because company's are afraid of lawsuits. Plus employee theft is almost just as expensive as customer theft, so why even fucking bother trying to stop anything ever
None of that applies to mom and pop stores. Steal from corporations you fucking animal
fry's electronics literally tackles people, I saw them do it multiple times in the short 3 months I worked there. they will forcibly detain you and the local police will show up in 5 minutes to cart you off
Femanon here. I worked at Staples for 2 years and became a klepto for a while. I started stealing from everywhere. I will tell you though, Staples is the EASIEST store to steal from. They only have cameras in the front near the registers. THAT'S IT. I stole $100+ constantly, inclusing headphones etc. Whatever I needed for school or my house I just stole. Also people constantly just took the merchandise in the bathroom, open it, and leave and we'd find the wrappers. Don't steal from Walmart, I'm serious. My friend just got caught stealing YuGiOh cards from there. I eventually got caught as well after going on a theiving rampage all over town. Now I'm over it but I can't go to a mall or store without being paranoid that people think I'm stealing. Even reaching into my bag for my phone feels sketchy.
>>582327449 i am >>582328159 that happened a lot. we had a spree for about a month of a goup of guys doing that and also some shady mexican contractors would come in and buy deck stain, sealant, asphalt, etc, and use it, fill the container with water and return it.
Your best bet is to steal from places that treat their employees like shit. Because nobody on the ground who could actually catch you gives enough of a fuck to do anything about it.
I've worked big box retail before and I can absolutely assure you that I have witnessed thefts and just not done jack shit because I didn't goddamn care. It isn't MY stuff, why should I do something I'm not getting paid to do just so that some company makes a bit more money or my boss's boss gets a little gold star on his file?
You steal from places where employees like their employer, they'll be willing to help them. Seriously hurts your odds.
Most office depots don't have real cameras. every employee stole from our store, we had items stolen by customers every day. They lock up the expensive stuff. Also we are trained to just let a thief go and call the police.
I used to steal processors from Walmart. You can order online, site-to-store with very minimal bullshit info and a fake ID(to pick it up) I would order 1 or 2 high end processors(500-1000 usd) site2store and buy 2 random broken-ass processors from CL(~$5) when the high ends get to walmart, I pay with cash and my fake ID and I go home(oh, don't ever go to the same walmart again after the stunt) I unpack the high ends and replace em with shitty ones. I now have 2 perfect high end intel CPU's...minus boxes(I sell for $150 less on ebay no problem, just labeled as factory surplus)
I take the boxed shit-CPU's back to walmart on an EVENING or NIGHT shift. That way, it's 99% chance that some idiot nigger or illiterate indian is working customer support. Bring the boxes in. They check that shit out, and usually assume it's all there when they see the heatsink. They give you back full cash refund. Boom. Heist complete.
Another case of nigger/indian abuse is screenshots. As you may know, Walmart had to stop accepting Amazon price-matches because people were making fake listings and showing them to employees. THEY STILL GOOF'D THOUGH. They still accept price-matches from MAJOR retailers. Simply edit a best buy page, print it out, bring it to walmart, and leave with your $150 PS3. Tips for this: 1. Again, don't come back afterwards. 2. Go to the stupidest looking Indian fuck in the store. 3. It's easier to pull off during "big sale" events. 4. DON'T DO THIS AT BEST BUY. They pricematch but they have an ONLINE DATABASE with REAL prices.
If you want to use and return "one-time-use" items, you just need to learn the art of repacking. Basically, stores like Walmart and Target take certain UNOPENED items back.(Check with their policies to be sure) I got my WoW subscription simply(cont.)
>>582328819 >>582328819 as a staples employee i completely agree. Staples has no security at all and they don't pay to staff enough people at night to really watch everything going down if you just make your move quickly and don't look sketch you can take all kinds of things and bail without worry
>>582328819 yea, my mom and her boyfriend use to steal and because of them every time i walk out a store i always think I'm gonna start going ding ding ding ding ding and so i get this bad gut feeling in my stomach as im walking out the store even though i purchased all my shit. It fucking sucks so badly.
I live near 3 Wal-Marts. What I used to do is steal these teeth whitening strips because they were small as fuck but very exspensive. Take them to a different Wal-Mart of the 3 that are close and return them for a cash refund. Wal-Marts here would allow cash refunds with no receipt then I would proceed to steal there whitening strips and hit the last Wal Mart I had not been to that day. Also if the person at the front door does not mark your receipt as you are leaving with what ever you purchased go back in a different entrance and grab the same exact Items again and go back out the different exit. I have done this with lots of alcohol for parties Leaving through the 3 different entrances and even the Home & Garden entrance and scored tons of free shit just depends on whether or not the person at each door marks your receipt or not.
the most expensive thing ive stole was 2 ipad minis on this black friday. they put tickets out but ended up not caring and i managed to get two of them. i walked to the bathrooms and put them in my coat, then i bought some gum and some chips, waited in those long ass lines then checked out after what felt like forever. a dude was checking reciptes at the exit i was worried but he just saw i just had those chips and wove me off. i plan on selling them a few bucks off retail in a week or 2
i kinda wanted to wait for the full sized ones to go on sale later but i didnt have the balls to go back in there
>>582328761 >shop at wallyworlds website and find an item that is in stock in your nearest store >in a seperate tab, find the same product on amazon >right click the price and "inspect element" >double click to change the price to whatever you want >don't be a dumbass and put something too low >change the page to make it appear that it is sold and shipped by amazon >Check the whole page, there are other totals that need to be changed as well >Remove the html around the feature image in order for it to appear correctly when printing >Print your fixed amazon ad >Price match your product at wallyworld or toysrus, haven't tried target, don't try at best buy
>>582329382 I just quit Staples like 7 months ago. It was literally the worst job in the world and after being so unappreciated I just stole everything left and right. They are so under-staffed. It's ridiculous. Also stealing shit from lock-up was easy too. Beats, ipads, you name it I stuffed it in my shirt/yoga pants. HAHAHA.
>>582329239 You're full of shit. They don't give that much in a cash refund. They use store gift cards. Like they keep $1000 in the fucking customer service register with some minimum wage retard able to hand it out. gtfo, lying nigger
used to work at bestbuy an i found a copy of animal crossing new leaf that didn't have its wrapping so i took it into the back and took the card and put the empty case back into inventory they didn't know shit
stealing from there isn't recomended though they usually have a really good AP group (asset protection) every store is different but i wouldn't steal from there unless you have an oportunity and to take like i did
i went to a walmart the other day and soneone took a razor to 10 cell phone plastic cases and took them. srriously out of all the places in a store youd think the electronics section would be very watched.
>>582329312 I'll tell you something you little boys don't want to hear....the truth. IF you were older, and payed attention to the world around you, then you would know this. Here it goes. Thieves get caught eventually. You may get away with it for awhile, but that will only embolden you and you will be caught. Then you have a record that does not go away. "Are you a convicted felon?" Get used to answering yes, and then being turned away from opportunities in life. Take it or leave it.
>>582329239 (cont) taping the box back up and returning it to Walmart. I also sold a few product keys for cheap using this method.
Last fraud tip is UPC replacement. You need to plan ahead for this, though. This is probably highest risk, since results depend on the quality of your work. I'll just explain how I did it to buy an Xbox 360 from Walmart many years ago.
1. Go to Walmart when they had 360's on some big event sale(boxes weren't locked up) 2. Whipped out my camera and set it to macro mode.(HD close-ups) 3. Took pictures of the UPC barcode on the console and a similarly named product(a controller-charger combo) 4. Went home, sat at computer. 5. Used a barcode generator to replicate controller barcode 6. printed EXACT SIZE onto THIN, GLOSSY paper 7. Not thin enough, I ended up sanding it a bit. 8. Slapped ultra-thin double-sided tape on 9.Went back to Walmart. 10. Took the console into a cart with some other groceries from that day. 11. While I walked through the aisles, I went into a blind spot and CAREFULLY applied the new UPC. 12. Went to a BUSY checkout. 13. Illiterate Indian + Close Name + Busy day = easy job
I got my Xbox 360(350 at the time) for $120.
Not full "stealing" but saving a SHIT TON of money.
....Meh, I may aswell do physical theft too. Stay tuned.
>>582324394 Walmart may seem like an easy target and it can be at certain times. If you do get caught though they will prosecute, contrary to what the interwebs say. Also Walmart with take a picture of you and put it into a criminal database that is shared between the company and law enforcement plus you get trespassed from any and every store in the company.

>>582330317 I worked at a Best Buy and our LP was shit.
We had guys steal a PS3 by taking a crockpot out of a box, putting the crockpot on the display unit shelf, and sticking the PS3 box inside the crockpot box. Paid like $20 and walked out, with a reciept in hand. We never even caught who did it on camera.
Shit like that happened all the time and we didn't notice, I guarantee it. It's not like we were breaking all the shit that came up uneven on the inventory.
Best theft story we ever had was two guys who had old Best Buy jackets and official-looking shit on their person (walkies on belts, big key rings, whatever) from somewhere pulled up out front with a pickup truck, walked in the front door, team-lifted an ENTIRE GODDAMN LAPTOP CAGE, with all the laptop boxes in it, outside, stuck it in their truck, and drove off. Nobody even said anything about it.
>>582330815 Store I worked at kept 2-4 grand in two of the service desk registers all day. They cash a lot of checks, so they keep a lot on hand. But no, they only do cash returns without a receipt up to something like $10.
Fun fact, whichever register they sell cigs at usually has the most money in it as well. At 24 hour walmarts, that's the one that is open all night.
Confidence is pretty key, I saw a guy walk out of a Winners (Marshalls in the US) with some 250$ (500 regular price since they cut the retail in half) Literally made sure no employee was eyeing him, took it out of the box, put them on and pretended they were his.
>>582331224 >We had guys steal a PS3 by taking a crockpot out of a box, putting the crockpot on the display unit shelf, and sticking the PS3 box inside the crockpot box. Paid like $20 and walked out, with a reciept in hand. We never even caught who did it on camera. I'm calling bullshit. How the fuck do you know what they did if you didn't catch them do it on camera? Top fucking kek.
I work at toys r us the best thing u can do is buy a game a new one that will cost you like 80$ and buy a protection plan for a year as soon as u passed the game or got tired of it scratch the cd and send it back for a full refund go back to the store and buy a new game
Had a really old graphics card that was on the fritz, decided it was time to get a new one. Go to Best Buy (didn't have time to wait for shipping) and drop $300 on a pretty nice one. After I get it home and install it, I notice my old one is about the same size/form factor. Genius idea of just putting the old one in the new ones box and returning it. I used to work at a Best Buy and I know that all computer components that get returned as opened go straight back to the mfg, so I was fucking no one over but Best Buy. Walk up to the return counter where the super cute high school girl was working and she didn't even double check what she was looking as, as expected. As a kicker, the new graphics card game with a coupon for Assassin's Creed Black Flag that I snagged before I brought the box back.
Did the same thing with a new HDD a few weeks later. Paid all in cash, really no way to trace that back to me.
Would I feel back if I was stealing from another human being? Absolutely. Do I feel bad from stealing from a massive corporation? Absolutely not.
>>582331773 PS3 was missing. We found a crockpot on the display shelf that wasn't supposed to be there same day, and a whole bunch of the manuals, plastic wrapping, and styrofoam shoved behind some of the bottom-stock boxes in that aisle.
Management called a storewide meeting. In full view of everyone, the LP manager opened a new box of the crockpot from the display, emptied all the manuals and styrofoam, placed a PS3 box inside, and sealed it up.
They seemed quite convinced that this had happened, and admonished the people in appliances to do a better goddamn job of monitoring the aisles that were camera blind spots. Maybe they checked the cameras and saw people take a PS3 off a shelf, then people in those same clothes walk out of the checkout with a crockpot, and put two and two together? A baseball cap and a glance at your feet pretty well obscures your face from overhead cameras, and even if they had their faces.
1. They usually don't monitor cameras 24/7. Only when something big is stolen and investigated.
2. Don't fuck with Best Buy. Seriously. Unless you live in Niggerville Africa, they have high tech security and buff doormen. At least all the ones I went to.
3. Vidyagames are fairly simple to nab if not locked up...just cover your bases. I always did it in the winter because I had an excuse to wear a thick coat and hat. Bring the boxed game to a blindspot, unbox, shove the disc/cartridge into your clothes, and dump the box(important) into a good hiding spot. Display furniture remains untouched for a long time, and by the time they find that box in there, they won't know the date you took the game, so no real security footage to return to.
4. Shoplifting small items is fucking easy as fuck, just be confident and don't look sketchy. I've been doing this since I was a kid. Mother and I would go shopping, I would put Pokemon decks in the cart. While shopping, I would slip more and more decks into my pockets while no-one was looking. Only got caught once. By mom. Who told me not to be so damn obvious.
5. Smuggle your goods like a semi truck smuggles mexicans! A lot of shit in stores isn't taped up(people like to open it up and look at the item) so it isn't sketchy. If you have something and you KNOW there is a magnet strip in there, you still have hope! Slip some of the stuff into the box. You then need to buy at least ONE item with a strip. I would buy WoW sub time back when I played. After checkout, the alarm will go off, but the cashier who just checked you out will assume they didn't de-activate the item you bought, disabled the alarm, and let you go.
I won't go over stealing from individuals or small stores. It's a period of niggerism that I am ashamed of, and I recommend you don't do it.
>>582332967 Having it on camera? On a camera it looks like I bought something, didn't need/like it, and returned it a few days later. By the time anyone would realize that a different graphics card is actually in the box it would be hundreds of miles away in the hands of a different company. It wouldn't show up on a shrink report for literally months,
>>582324394 Look out for storewalkers. there are paid employess who dress normal and lurk around the store and if they get you right its easy for them to apprend you but you can usually walk out unarrested if you play your cards right and depending on the people of the store it deffinitly does vary. >be me >20 >training to be butcher >learning at a department store >meat saws and grinders and what not >cameras all work and record at all times don't listen to bs >the thing is there has to be someone actually watching them at the time to notice you >its literally a person usually a chick who just sits behind a desked in a locked room always watching >they see sketchy shit they put a storewalker on you >if you dont look suspicious you have about 50/50 to see if you get caught or not >liquor is suuuper high risk >and as workers we get a bonus for calling in a shoplift and you get caught >there is incentive >buuuut no cameras in a freezer or cooler >get ribeyes and new york strips on a weekly basis brats and all that >eat like a king paid like a slave >processing meat is the second highest paying job in the store though >mfw I'll be there in 2 more months >might not have to go to college boys wish me luck
Basically don't make a habit of it and be smooth and confident
>>582333704 The back of house team at the Best Buy I did this at literally never checks. They always had too much other shit to do. They see a PCR sticker on something and it goes into a bucket and gets shipped off that night. Unless it is an iPad or iPhone or something, which almost never get PCR'd anyways.
>>582331996 I have not done the whitening strip thing since I was in High School which was 2004. I know it wouldn't work now but back then they would refund them fully in cash for some stupid reason. They would only do it because they were like Kirkland brand or w/e that you can only get at Wal-Mart my buddy got caught because he tried doing it multiple times in a day so I stopped doing it years ago.
>>582327450 I actually did steal a hat from target. You can do it with jackets too. Just take off the tags in secret and put it somewhere. walk out. wait a few minutes and go to returns/L&F and say you forgot it and lost it. They will bring it to you, and win.
I've been stealing for about 5 years now. I'd say I'm somewhere in the vicinity of 4000-5000$ worth of stolen goods, so nothing especially huge.
I mainly still food and supplements. I've stolen a few watches, etc. but I mainly stick to other items. Supplements are a hidden gold mine though. While I generally use about 80% of what I steal for myself, you can make a shit ton of money selling supplements to people. Diet pills and such, if it sells in the store for 50$ I'll sell it for 35$, stuff like that.
>>582333704 Because they would know, right? I mean, it's not like they would open the box, see "yeah, there's a thing in there that looks like the thing on the box, and this paper doesn't note that it came with cables or secondary parts," and check it off.
Except they would. Because—and here's the thing—they don't fucking care. They're just doing their job, and in the most slapdash manner possible because they want to be done with it and move on to the other thousand things they have to do.
>>582333503 I used to do data recovery for an IT place back in Uni. DBAN and similar quickwipe tools are okay for removing nasty shit from your drive because it renders all data unmapped and unaccessible by the OS.
However, should the company ever get extra pissed about being robbed(not likely but possible) they can hire a computer forensics guy to recover the drive. I did this sort of thing at the shop all the time, mostly for people who wiped the wrong disk like a bunch of dumbasses.
What I'm saying is, it is almost impossible to fully cleanse a hard disk drive, even WITH a total overwrite(faulty sectors and whatnot) and that it only takes a few bytes of revealing info to get caught doing something bad.
I'm not saying you can't do it though. If you have a couple of nice screwdrivers, take the drive apart, remove the platter, re-assemble and exchange.
>>582333396 Also info source is Im friends with the dike who runs loss prevention at the store and they like me >if i sell over 100$ of crab legs for example >im supposed to call lp and have them notified >do this only for sketchy niggers obviously >not all but if you look to broke to be buying 150$ worth of lobster ofc >called on an older black guy on thanksgiving >got caught 124$ apprehension >got a 40$ gift card
I work at RadioShack and can assure you any RS in a mall is cake to steal from. At most, only two associates will be staffed, and only like 1/3 of the time one of those is a manager. Sometimes we open or close alone for several hours. If you just go in when the number of groups of customers outweighs the number of associates, you can take anything you want. Just wait for a mexican or old person to start asking retarded questions to the clueless employee and watch as all their focus is completely separated from the merchandise.
In most stores, anything over 49.99 is going to be on a locked peg, which makes it really hard to steal. If you bring a small knife you can usually cut the item off by the inch-wide hanger part of the packaging (Beats are tough to do this with because they use a thick plastic).
The hard part is finding something at RadioShack worth stealing.
>go to Walmart at 1-2am >Bring bolt cutters to cut the chain link fence in the garden center and slash the tarp with a pocket knife >Slip Items through the fence and then go outside to collect your stolen loot. >Have a friend outside and a friend by the garden center entrance with a walky talky to alert the guy putting the items through the fence if someone is coming.
This lasted a couple of months and we stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. A manager eventually caught on because we would come in every night and bring a cart load of stuff into the garden center and come out with nothing. Luckily we had walky talkies to tell the guy shoving the stuff to the outside that the manager was coming or we would have got caught.
>>582333932 Yes... actually all the guy does is slap his name there for publicity... I don't think he does much. Even if he did that would just make it worse. Beats are overpriced shit for niggers that get money for the first time and they don't know how to spend it. But srsly mr.chocletman skullcandy? Skullcandy sucks man you're insulting beats when skullcandy is just as bad.
>>582328710 This. I stole from Kroger the whole time i was homeless. I took randomly found kroger bags in with me in my pockets.. put them into the basket, filled them with whatever i wanted to eat. then walked up to doors and dropped the basket and walked out holding my food in the bags... did it like every 3 days or so for 6 months.
I have money now tho, so I pay for my shit. I only stole food also, cuz food is the fucking best thing in the world when you have nothing.
I haven't done this but I was thinking, if you find something in a cardboard box that's not expensive, you could fill it with cd's and dvd's and then buy the box. I can't really find anything that could go wrong here
>>582335160 >people aren't lazy now Do you know how many times I didn't ACTUALLY verify that a serial number matched a reciept just because I didn't feel like trying to figure out where it was stamped?
Nobody is gonna check. Nobody ever did, anyway. If someone returned a flat screenTV in a Sony box and the thing inside didn't say "Vizio", wasn't half the size it was supposed to be, and wasn't a bag of dead leaves, I just let it go.
It all gets shipped back to the mfg as a damaged product. Our numbers came out correct if we sent it off due to how the books were kept, why should we care if it was a similar-but-not-the-same product?
You'd be amazed at just how much friction is caused by employees not giving enough of a shit to do their job properly.
Don't hit twice. AP will find your dumped package, and when they find the package, they will find your picture, they will find out what you drive. It's possible someone in the store went to high school with you and you will get served a warrant the next day. (True Story).
Get in, get out. Don't let AP get a look at your sneaky ass. Your body language is betraying you and you don't even know it.
Don't be overly friendly to the help. No word vomit, no cold shoulder either.
Don't use tools in your heist, it's an extra charge in most jurisdictions.
Don't fight with AP. They will win and if they don't they will still win when you are caught and hit with felony charges.
If you use a cart, push it. Don't pull your cart. "Boosters" are notorious cart pullers for some reason.
Got lots more where that came from if anyone's interested.
>>582334893 They were the Wal Mart brand cheap version of like Crest Whitening strips for your teeth. They were expensive as fuck even for being the cheap knock off but were very easy to conceal and shit you could put 100's of dollars worth in your shoes and walk on them. We got stopped a few times but they never made us take off our shoes only empty our pockets and jackets and shit like that. The reason we stole the Wal Mart brand was because they allowed no receipt cash exchanges on shit that was either Sam's Club brand or Kirkland which these teeth strips were. This is no longer possible now I believe I have not tried since I was like 18-19 though 26 now
Garden sections are GREAT for stealing shit. Most of the time they're unguarded and have no cameras. They don't expect thieving because well, it's a fucking garden section. CRITICAL FLAW! They don't put magnet-things at the door, since people with full carts walk through all the time. Simply go through with a full cart, toss the stuff you wanna keep over/under the fence, go back through the store, pick your shit up and leave.
Just be careful. If the item is too big/too high priority, they WILL notice you taking the item, going to the garden section, and leaving without it. Either you disguise yourself properly or avoid large items.
Not a big accomplishment, but the other day i bought an xbox one with the free assassins creed stuff, and the controller didn't work so i had to get a whole new bundle, which came with another assains creed thing. sooo like a 25 dollar rip off i guess?
Get a job as an employee at Office Depot. They have ZERO security in the back. I had a connection that could get me anything I wanted from the store. He'd steal 2-3 laptops a day, and their inventory system was so fucked up that he could fudge the paperwork and it would take months for them to notice, by which time he moved on to a new branch and did the same thing. Dudes home was like the store, thousands of different items, huge selection of laptops. Best part of all, I could pay in pills that cost $1 at the pharmacy, were worth $10 to him, and he charged 1/3-1/5th retail.
>>582336208 >Don't pull your cart. "Boosters" are notorious cart pullers for some reason. No wonder I always get extra looks from AP when I pull my cart. I just do it because I hate shopping and it's faster.
>>582335742 lol now I know you're joking. 1) Geek Squad doesn't give a shit about what happens in the rest of the store. They are too busy and none of that affects them. 2) People that work at Geek Squad generally aren't any smarter than the other employees. They typically have 2 or 3 people on payroll that can actually fix a computer and the rest to do process. 3) The two or three people that I mentioned are constantly up to their eyeballs in work, they would not have the time to check returns even if the back of house team wanted them to. I know this because I was this person at one point. I can't ever remember talking to product process about anything work related. They did their work and I did mine.
I can see this plan failing if you use it to move thousands of dollars, but there realistically is no way to get caught if you want to upgrade a piece of hardware every year,
>>582324394 all you have to do to be a successful thief is be an attractive female. seriously, i know so many girls who steal clothes, makeup, food, etc. in small amount daily. if you get caught you just start crying and they will forgive you.
I must mention in some places you've laws where LP can't detain you beyond store premises without it technically being kidnapping.
Having said that, this is perhaps the reason why there exists various instances in which I've personally lifted bikes, TVs, hundreds of dollars worth of speakers and endless beer straight out the door without any problems.
Sometimes, being so ballsy to take shit in this fashion in crowded department stores has the benefit of being so ballsy nobody would believe you'd actually just walk out the front door with it.
Still got to play it smart. And always trust your gut instincts in regards to being watched.
I work as LP at a Target, and our instructions are that if we have video evidence we're not under any circumstances to allow a thief to leave beyond the outer doors past the 'theft line'. There's a set of doors with a tag that reads "No unpaid merchandise past this line" where the store officially ends, and if you pass that line with unpaid-for merchandise, we are required to detain you. All of our freewalk LP staff have security guard certifications, so we're legally allowed to physically detain you if we have to as long as we don't 'purposefully' injure you. Only about a week ago we snagged a big black dude trying to walk out with a big screen smart TV and physically pinned him to the ground while my boss sat on him.
>>582324394 I don't know how it is now but back in the day I used to steal EVERYTHING. I had every system, every game, and every other dumb thing I wanted. I didn't even have a job because all I had to do was pick up a 500 dollar vacuum or some other high dollar shit, walk up to the return counter to get store credit for it and I would buy my food that way. Even after they put that sticker system in place all I would have to do is buy some cheap shit get the sticker for it and dump the 3 dollar item around the store. The trick is to act like you didn't do anything wrong and find a way to cut out or deactivate the beeper strip that goes off when you leave the store. I got out with multiple HDTV's that way. I just put it in my cart, held a receipt I picked up off the ground and strolled out the front door. The people are old as fuck and 90% of the time didn't even stop me. That is how I got all the systems and my TV's All the small stuff got put in a foil lined bag or I went in the bath room to cut out the beeper. If you do end up being stopped by a bag checker you are not obligated to show them the receipt. Just remain calm, say "no thank you" and if anyone but a cop tries to stop you run nigger. I say this because if a cop is there at the door you obviously don't fucking steal and if you see one walking up to you they got you on camera doing it so running will only get you a worse charge.
>>582334475 >I mainly still food and supplements. I've stolen a few watches, etc. but I mainly stick to other items. Supplements are a hidden gold mine though. While I generally use about 80% of what I steal for myself, you can make a shit ton of money selling supplements to people. Diet pills and such, if it sells in the store for 50$ I'll sell it for 35$, stuff like that.
wat? if they BOUGHT expensive things they are sketchy? What are they stealing if they bought it?
>>582336489 >ust because you're a lazy piece of shit doesn't mean other people are. You caught me, anon! I'm the one lazy person on Earth.
It's not like retailers are staffed with an army of disgruntled employees who are overworked, underpaid, unappreciated, and are interested in doing the barest minimum of bullshit required to gather a paycheck.
I was a GOOD one. I had a coworker who got pissed off at his supervisor and took a Telxon (the price reader equipment that gets used for sign changing every week, which are like $900) and just chucked it into a back corner of top-stock. They never did find it for the rest of the time I worked there, long after he quit. Everywhere I've worked, before or since, has had at least a handful of employees like that. Disgruntled slackers and saboteurs. They're everywhere.
>>582337198 As one of the 3 ARAs in our "precinct", I was ridiculously busy between picking up the slack of our shit for brains milf OA, our teenage lazy as fuck CAs, and the 40 computers on the bench that needed to either be hooked up to AJU or taken down with customizer and called. Everyone else in Best Buy knows this, which is why they would never... NEVER... come to us with extra work. And if they did we would promptly tell them to fuck off. Think of Geek Squad as its own store inside of Best Buy. We didn't give a fuck about what happened outside of it.
>>582337137 High school girlfriend did this. She knew the law, so when she walked by the greeter or whatever, he would say "eh, u pay, u pay for grocery?" and as she walked out she laughed and said "no"
Laws are changing though, and I have personally seen Target guys tackle some nigger outside of the store. Watch yourself.
>>582337568 no i called him a kid because he doesn't know shit about the geek squad saying that only 3 of the people actually know what they are doing. Not true at all. The guy clearly has never been to a "hey i work for the geek squad ask me anything" threads and is making shit up.
>>582337137 This I worked for a local Beer distributor for awhile after high school and this dude loaded up a huge suitcase full of beer and tried running out front door with it, he tripped and fell like inbetween the exits where the stash the carts when you first come in. They detained him and shit for like 8 hours before cops showed up finally and Wal Mart fucked up big because he never made it out of the store with the shit. They had to fire every employee involved in detaining him and were facing kidnapping charges or some shit but he didn't pursue charges or w/e.
A lot of you are talking about free merchandise and whatnot.. but unless you have a proper fence you either need to sell it, or just keep it.
I don't think anyone has mentioned stealing immediate cash. A couple junkies I know go through the parking lot trash for receipts, then go in and steal and item listed on the receipt, and return in for cash. That's how you do it. Anyone know what return policies are at various places these days? Like; cash with receipt, or cash only if no card to reverse charge, etc? Need cash fast. Any other ways?
>>582324394 Walk into wal-mart, take some wal-mart bags in your pockets, walk around grabbing all the stuff that doesn't have security devices, go into an empty hallway, put everything inside the bags, nonchalantly walk out.
>>582337763 and I never said you're the only person who is lazy, all I said was just because you are doesn't mean everyone is, meaning alot of employees like there job, and alot don't. The stores i've been to over the years i've been alive on this planet always check shit when i return it, taking it out of the box to see its the right thing and all that stuff. I don't know where the fuck you people live that don't check but NY and NC always fucking check.
>>582337865 yea and I call bullshit on that, i've been to best buy and when I was returning a video card one time they had the geek squad come and get it and put it into there area, so I don't know who you're trying to lie to kid but its not gonna work on me.
>>582328453 >>582337476 Where I live a dude got fired at my Local Best Buy for tackling this dude that was in the parking lot running with a cart full of stolen Blu ray players. The guy was charged with theft or w/e but it was against store policy to tackle this nigger or w/e and they "had" to fire him most stores in my State have this same policy that I know of.
>>582337476 So you are willing to get your ass fucked up to save some rich fucks shit that is insured anyway... I thought I was dumb for stealing in my younger days but you are the real dumb ass. That nigger was too dumb to know your badge didn't mean shit and should have chimped out on both of you. I would have rocked your face if you had tried to stop me as a 23 year old scum bag. I had other dudes I worked with bring weapons in but they had already been to jail so they would have gotten jail time for any dollar amount so it was worth the risk to cut you or shock your ass. Me, I had, and still have a clean record... Even if you did manage to get me, community service is all I would be looking at so why risk a weapons charge for a PS2 game.
>Be Friday at 11:30 Am Best Buy >Busy as fuck for black friday >Friend and I want free shit >I Buy a Xbox one cause they're like 330 bucks >Bought at the register next to the video games (very important) >Walk out of store and immediately give friend receipt >He was waiting by ash tray out side of store smoking. >He goes in, grabs another Xbox >Shows his receipt to dude waiting by front door >walks out with Xbox >Beeping alarm goes off >Dude Checks receipt again >Sees it was bought like 3 minutes ago at video game checkout register >Tells some bitch working register to just turn alarm off >Walk out, alarm sounds, immediately turned off Buy 1 get one free xbox, Best black friday deal ever
>>582338890 They check to make sure it isn't a McDonald's cheeseburger, but these people wouldn't know a GTX 780 from a GTX 770 (or whatever) even if they wanted to, and especially if they don't particularly care.
>>582338705 I buy a used card printer on Ebay for around $80, hologram stickers on the internet, and make a somewhat legit looking ID. They aren't trained to actually check it, only the liquor guys need to do that. Most of the time they see your picture and your name and don't even ask to hold it.
If you can't do it yourself, I can't really help you...I haven't bought a fake ID since high school, and high school was easy since there was always "that guy"
>>582338562 This is really dated, I've been at Walmart for 2 years now,
>Per store, 2 security employees We have one, and he works 8-4 Mon-Fri, the odd day on the weekend
>Cell phones Never seen our LP use a cellphone, he just uses the landline in the store if he has to call for a manager
>Fake cameras Not true
>Discouraged from watching cameras Also not true, our LP will spend about 5 hours of his 8 hour shift in the office where the camera monitors are. He's only on the floor to make his presence known to associates.
It's easy af to steal from Walmart, people do it everyday. The only time people get caught is when they fill their carts with clothes, toys, and shit like that.
People get caught trying to leave with $500-$600 worth of shit in their cart. Hardly anyone ever gets caught stealing smaller items or fewer items
>>582339471 and like i said, best buy i went to had someone from the geek squad come check it was the right one and the guy confirmed. I will say again, you must live in some really fucked up place in the US that the workers don't give a fuck, but NC and NY do so this shit doesn't fly.
I work at a very large goodwill. Our LP here has hd cameras and tackles people all the time. last month we had our "glitter" sale where we sell real coach and gucci shit. Two female niggers made their way passed me out the furniture load out door with abunch of bags. After I realized they still had the tags on I went outside to see what way they went and BOOM 6-6 300 pound redneck LP marshawn lynched this bitch right in the parking lot. Don't fuck around at goodwill.
best i got from small string of stealing >dont look sketchy. >dont be black. it helps alot. >be confident. most people get caught because they slip up or get nervous. >use dressing rooms, clothing racks and kids aisle to get tags or magnets off. pretend to try something on or search a rack/aisle for an item while taking them off. >buy something small before you leave to avoid suspicion >dont hit the same place more than like once every 2 weeks >dont draw attention to yourself >nothing too big >if you see a guy outside leaning on a wall or scanning, he is security waiting for you. book it or just walk other way >bring extra clothes and change a little before leaving >"tie your shoe" and stuff things in pant leg, sock or shoe. >buy something and knock some item into the bag. if/when alarm sounds, security will just let it go or think the cashier didnt take the magnet off. >nothing too noisy like chips or jewelry >check for cameras, blind spots and busy times by going there and actually buying something. >get a friend as an inside employee to assist your thefts >try those anti credit card theft wallets. they block the sensors from tripping alot of the time when you cant get them off. try with "knock into bag" method described above
tl;dr dont steal from small mom and pop shops because they actually get hurt by this theft.
>>582324394 heard a story when i was in high school about one of the other kids who stole thousands of dollars of games from kmart
he bought an esky (like a big cooler box thing that you take on picnics and shit) and because it was too big to take around with them, they asked if they could take it out the back (which is usually allowed if there are big products that are bought and need to be loaded directly into trucks or trailers or whatever) while they were waiting for the staff to make sure it was all ok they filled the esky with hundreds of games and shit and because they went out the back way they didnt go through the sensor shit so went by undetected takes a lot of balls though, its not just petty theft
>>582339852 I feel like the one time you did this and they called GS in to check it out, it was a store that had been suffering big due to scams like this so they were taking extra measures.
The places where I shop, detaining a frustrated customer for 15 minutes so you can page down an expert to determine if they're a liar is not something you'd fucking do. It doesn't affect the department's numbers if you do a fake return because returns on shit like that are zeroed out when it gets shipped back to the manufacturer. The department would sooner make your return go smoothly just so they don't have to deal with your possible bitching and (in the very LIKELY event you're telling the goddamn truth) hopefully retain you as a customer.
The Best Buy I worked at wasn't concerned with high loss/breakage. But we WERE concerned with high customer turnover/low loyalty. We prioritized accordingly. Treating all returns like frauds until proven otherwise would have been unsound business to catch the one guy who scammed, not you, but the manufacturer out of a few hundred bucks.
Sounds to me like you shop in Niggerton since the stores treat everyone like a crook by default. They must have a ridiculous loss problem.
>>582326584 True. Used to work for Sears LP. You could beat the shit out of the people as long as you didn't leave a mark. Or leave a mark in a noticeable place. Used to chase them down even far from the store.
>>582335987 > be 12 > no idea how to get rid of virus > mom goes to geek squad > they they say they say all they say all data they say all data is backed up on one discs > load disks in drive > completely blank > fucktheseniggers.gif > now steal from best buy forever because they can't can't do shit > and now know how to clear viruses and fix shit
>>582324394 If it's small, grab two of them al the same time but make it look like you just took one. Next you make it look like you've changed your mind and your putting back but only put back one and quickly put the other one up your sleeve and in your pocket or something. I used to do this right in front of employees and they couldn't tell, it just takes practice.
>>582340454 >Geography and shit But I agree nothing but Drunks getting DUI's here and shit tons of Meth. Literally every new business that opens here is some dirty ass Bar/Casino or a Bank where Indians can cash there checks from the Government and get drunk as fuck at said bars and casinos and generally do nothing but be fucking savages. We don't have that fucking stupid sounding southern accent is all
It's really easy to start, hard to make bank. All you do is download a fuckton of pics of a girl (nude and non nude) and pretend to be a girl. You then make a fake PP account (or accept Amazon GC's) and go around as a whore online. Works great on older dudes.
Think about it this way: People pay for porn subscriptions People pay for whores People pay for nudes
You are just the seller.
>pro tip You can find VCW's online. Kinda rare, but they are literally a recording and you can press buttons to activate certain actions. It's pretty fucking sick.
>all you do is ask people to pay. You can do sob stories, or be aggressive. It takes practice
>>582337980 Your gf sounds classy lol Not to be a hypocrite or anything, I currently steal about 200$ worth of groceries from different walmarts every week. Sometimes my brother helps me as a distraction for the front door greeter, either by asking him something as I'm walking out or starting shit. He smoked a cigarette inside by the doors and everyone was staring at him but no one said shit, I couldn't help but laugh as I was walking out. >I've probably stole close to 20,000$ in groceries alone in the last 2 years and haven't been caught, at least not to my knowledge I always eat like a king, though I'm not fat surprisingly
I guess they don't really expect people to be ballsy enough to do some of the shit I've done. Not to mention I used to fraudulate Home Depot, the guy I used to do it with has probably racked up close to 800,000$ worth of shit in the past 4 years, not even joking
I know this has generally been a thread about theft from larger store chains but what about home theft? Any anons with experience in that regard? I dont really even want to take money or shit I just want the thrill of breaking into someones house. Looking for tips about the best time/season, good ways in or out, that sort of thing
>>582341327 i hate the fucking southern accent so much, even though I am still in the north a bit theres still so many fucking southern accent piece of shit niggers and white trash here. I deal with it because cheap rent, but you will never catch me talking to any of these fucks.
I work loss prevention in Walmart. The guys who watch the cameras are Walmart employees, I'm hired through an outside company. I tackle bitches weekly for theft. Hell I'm encouraged to and it's fun. Camera guys talk to me through headset. The best part is Walmart isn't liable for my action because on paper policy is to not touch the criminal. In a big city you gotta do it this way or niggers would steal all day long. If shit gets too rough camera guys delete the footage. Be me, 6ft 6in 235lbs.
>>582341086 >>582340330 >dont take chips or jewelry shit my older brother and i used to steal shit easily adding up to several thousands, we were also 10 and 14. used to go into department store, grab five ihomes, windows vista, any game we wanted in 2s, and best thing was we'd always get cookies.
when we got caught all we stole was a south park dvd and cheetos >lesadfrogmeme.jpg we were also very poor, hence the stealing
>>582342051 Not really, just a busy day. Just know there is more people that could potentially be watching you. Black friday works nice cause every employee is covered in customers. The Saturday before christmas is gonna be the next time I do it. If you have a loyal friend, do the same thing I did, but have him give you the 2nd xbox and then go return it as if it was a gift, get money back, free xbox son. JUST DONT OPEN IT FOR GOD SAKE
>>582342350 are you retarded? of course they'll know they got robbed shits missing from there home. Wife/husband starts going "SEE WE SHOULDA HAD HOME SECURITY SEE!!!!" Marriage ended, traumatized children. Just don't do it.
I've gotten punched in the face and guys threaten me sometimes, like "ima get you... Blah blah blah" Most of the time I scare the shit out of them because I grab them and the goods then announce who I am. If I just get the goods and the perp runs away we just call police.
>>582327173 I've stolen 3500 dollars worth of the latest iPod nanos a Wii back in the day 2 shopping carts full of spray paint and various mp3 players in cases....a friend of mine was getting MacBooks from best buy....AMA!
current Target employee here. Idk about anywheres else but i work at one in Atlantic Canada and we have no target security guys. just an LP person. and we are told that if yo usee someone stealing you cant dp anything about it or apprehend them or you will get in alot of trouble, possibly fired. its easy as pie to steal from them, they cant do shit about you stealing but make you really nervous until you put stuff back. people steal form our store constantly.
alright now listen up. You got a bag? fucken put it on the trolley, take whatever you want, go to an aisle without a camera (usually the soda aisle) and put it in your bag. >what happens if they ask to search my bag?? say (in these words) "sorry I don't really consent to any searches :/. trust Me I've never been caught
Barnes and Noble is usually really easy to steal from, do yr research tho. Some stores have LP, I however can tell you that the B and N on Hall road in MI is good to go. Find someone who wants cheap books, I had a buddy supply himself gas and ciggies and denny's for awhile when he was jobless doin this.
>>582343026 Oh, from a hypothetical sense it'd totally be worth it. I'm going to at least assert to the puppet boy the fact I've absolutely no respect nor recognition to the so-called "authority" he posses.
>>582343660 I always keep the bags in my pockets until I'm in an empty aisle with no cameras. If you walk in bags in hand obviously they're gonna keep an eye on you cuz that shits suspicious. But basically yeah that's how I get my groceries every week lol
At walmart for things around the width of your arm, what I would do is actually get a few things I'd plan to buy or something that's cheap, and then I'd go to a blind-spot, put it in my hoodie sleeve, walk into the bathroom, throw all the wrappers and stuff down the toilet, without anyone else in ofc, go to checkout, buy the cheap/needed things, and walk out with it above my elbow, but below the top of my shoulder, though I've just did a few walk in and outs before, that works for smaller things. Won't work for most people, but if you have big arms and a decent sized hoodie (not suspiciously big) you should be fine.
dont be a nigger and get a job OP. or stop taking meth and get your head straight. also, hoooweee, i see you have big criminal aspirations, stealing from target!! get me some of those merona socks while you are at it. sell drugs or some shit. at least you are a "businessman" and not some low life shop lifter.
Best way to steal is to become an employee of the store you wanna steal from. Most stores have back areas without cameras where employees regularly go for their working duties. I worked at a major electronics retailer back in the day and only stole a fraction of what most employees made off with.
Carry-over technique for non-employee thieves: Most stores' deactivators for the magnetic security tags are embedded in the checkout counters. Sometimes they are even an obvious gray square or circle in the counter. For any small items that you don't want setting off the exit checkpoint alarms, just casually set them down on these deactivators at an unattended checkout station (like in sporting goods or electronics, for big-box stores. Then, pocket the item or stick it in a bag and walk out. Not guaranteed, but definitely cuts down on the chance of small things setting off alarms and drawing attention.
