If I were to start stealing things from stores to save money, how would I go about it? Related question: If I were to begin selling things I stole from stores, how would I go about it?

Some of the older Kmarts only have the giant dome cameras and those can be easy to avoid. They often use the white eas tags that they stick to the outside of merchandise and can be peeled off.

We used to use Lizzie bags to steal from high end department stores. Stealing sunglasses is huge if you can find a safe place. We used to rack shit at Oakley because my friend stole a key from behind the counter. You can also steal maxi-shears or similar wire cutters to cut off security devices. Leather can be a big score and once you've cut it away, just wear it the fuck out. Now you can go sell it or find another retailer that carries it, return it for store credit and you just bought some new gear. REIand the like have highend gear that rarely goes on sale. Look on their site and elsewhere to find compact items of high value and use the Lizzie bag method, though if you pocket it and buy some other trivial thing you can just leave and not stop when it goes off, later you can return the thing you bought with a reciept for your money back at another rei.

Food should just be walked out. Bring one of those reusable bags and fill that shit, but be quick about how you leave - don't take the beer run route straight from the back to the door. Walk behind some cashiers le you just left a line. Only do that at busy times.

Sell on craigslist sometimes, but diversify and use other sites like Amazon or eBay when selling a consistent product like "outdoor apparel"

Remember, almost all places have a policy that will keep a security guard from touching you but they can follow you if they feel safe (some will to be heros even if you could stab hm). You need to have an exit strategy that allows you to get out in 2 ways, so plan ahead and park our car facing the best way out where traffic won't be an issue, but also know the area so you can dip out in a non-obvious direction and call a friend or a cab.

Their is so much I cold learn you son, but my racking days are done.

Steal food, expensive food like meat and cheese, it is easy to sell for half price and you get a decent meal that day too. Put carrier bags in your shopping basket and as you walk round fill the bags with steaks n stuff, at a opportune moment take the bags and walk out. Do not be scruffy/dirty. Do not go anywhere near the alcohol shelves. Make sure store is as busy as possible. If you think they are onto you go put everything back and leave.

I have stolen over I'd say $500-$1000 in items from Wal-Mart every year for the past 4 years. (Only 19) Ask me anything

Modern Mom 13/12/13(Fri)22:05 No. 1792 ID: 740f9c

If they do this and they ask you if you "want to come with us" you say "no thank you" and walk away. Ditch the items where they can't see you if possible. They do this to you in the store which means if you do have something on you, it's not stolen (since you're in a store). They *ask* you if you want to go with them because then you admit you're willing if you say yes to that question and they make you think you have to go with them. Legally, they can't just hold you in a small room against your will. I think security can keep you in the store while they get actual authorities, but they can't hold you against your will or make you go anywhere with them.

Really it's not worth getting busted for this so I guess know the place, know where the cameras are and be sure you're not being watched. Be crafty and know the law. I'd get a partner but the less people that know the better (since people will snitch if it gets them off the hook). Don't be dumb and steal something that will set an alarm off- i.e. electronic items. I believe bananas and other food does this at Walmart but I can't imagine you're trying to steal food to re-sell it.

If you're trying to sell stuff, hang on to it for as long as you can- but have a place to hide it. Don't leave it in your house or something and then let the cops in later. Stash it with a buddy if possible, I'd say at your storage but you could get busted if the police get a warrant- if you do put it in your storage have one of those round heavy-duty locks (the cut-proof ones). The actual selling, maybe on craigslist but if it was something valuable or something that was obviously stolen, you can get busted that way. If it's something untraceable (i.e. not a TV or an electronic device) take it to a pawn shop out of the area the next time you are away. Sell things to private buyers in person (people you know and trust). You could sell it online on sites like eBay as well, ship it out of the country if the opportunity comes.

These are just some basic tips that people tend to overlook. Mostly you'll have to improvise and use your common sense to get away with it.

Okay, I've practised shoplifting for years some time ago, and heres what you do:
1)Pockets suck. Sleeves go a long way for candy bars, markers, pencils, even cigars. The more constricting sleeves, the better. Don't however, let your loot stick out - the thicker the better.
2)Pockets suck. Anything larger goes in your pants, behind your belt - spray paint, boxes, bottles. Belt goes a long way. Would not work if you're skinny, for obvious reasons.
2-2)Don't put items, that you would feel uncomfortable with at your dick. Don't walk funny.
2-3)Work with one hand. If you really have to use both hands to shove a candy bar up your pants, like it often happens in tv shows, my son, you may happen to be retarded.
pre3)For both 1st and 2nd points I would like to thank my blazer jacket, which covers my crotch.
3)Find a blind spot from cameras and crew. Haul your loot and only then stuff it in your pants, silly.
4)Second time you go to a shop, have a look around, walk around, as if you were confused. If an employee as much as looks at you, get out.
5)Best to work in pairs. Alone you look so vulnerable and sneaky, two of you can cover each others backs, yet three people make a crowd, which is, of course, suspicious.
6)Keep multiple items in multiple locations. Even if someone busts your sleeve, you still have those beer bottles sitting on your dick, bubble gun in front right and back right pockets, and a pack of cigs in your coats inner pocket. Don't steal a lot of objects, though - you are saving, not living on your skill, Robin Hood.
7)Keep a cool head. Prepare yourself, experienced employees spot a jumpy guy - jumpy means trouble. Try to lift your own items, to see if you have chosen the right clothing.
8)Don't smoke before lift. POCKETS SUCK. Smoke after.

I was always afraid to steal from super markets because I assumed that the alarm would go off if I walked out the doors.

Those only work with items that have beepers. Often - liquor, brands clothing, electronics... Beepers are small plastic things attached to such certain products, to protect the most expensive ones from being lifted.

Modern Mom 14/03/31(Mon)14:50 No. 2002 ID: 9c1726

I call them beepers, because if you try to pass exit, exits gonna beep. Few products have RIFD chips on them, which, after purchase of such product, is removed by shops staff member. This video explains how to remove them in home field advantage (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqBkLXo-j940), yet RIFD devices can have any shape or size or whatever.

Don't get me wrong, I've no problem with you stealing shit. Just don't do it in my store.

The main reason I train my staff is because it helps me get my bonuses which can total up to 2.5k a year. It's not about white-knighting, it's about me lining my pockets.

go into the grocery store or anywhere where there is produce that gives bags with the little wire tristies. Always double bag your stuff and take two twisties. Sneak a few in your pocket and in no time you could sell the twisties at the metal yard by the pound, or on ebay. Also, take huge wads of toilet paper from public restrooms.

dont just steal shit then try sell it....steal to order. take a plastic bag with empty cornflake box with rag in the bottom to the store like you bought it in the last store. drop ordered toiletries, untagged booze, razor blades, meat etc into the empty box. buy something cheap then walk out.

farmer 16/11/27(Sun)02:11 No. 2913 ID: 90dca0

if the store has wifi, log on and get the ip. later at starbucks try that ip on port 9000 etc or 23, 8080. you can often get into the dvr on the camera system. i can get a few shops near me and steer the cameras away from steal zones, one i can wipe selected days footage, copy an old one to that filename. then you can really take the piss and when they look for who took that 42" tv....well nobody did, its still there. manager then manager suspicion. lol

go to the reduced chilled goods section. take a bar code, place on massive fillet steak. reduced bar codes dont carry weight info. use on self service till if poss. swapping codes on busy days is easy money. till op cant watch the till display while scanning esp if your wittering some donald trump rant at them

I don't steal but I work at a superstore and can tell you that most employers are not allowed to stop you and can lose their job if they do. I've had people walk into my store, grab TV's and walk out, knowing we can't do anything about it. Your main goal should be to not look suspicious at all, just wearing regular clothes and acting like youre shopping. If you want it to be easier, go to a store in a city that enforces a 'bring your own bag' law or something so they it is alot less weirder to just grab stuff and put it in your bag, then walk right past the registers and be done with it.

I have a jacket with a shell that has pockets on the interior that are inaccessible when zipped up. I can drop shit in there when no ones looking and then zip it up. If someone told me to empty my pockets nothing would be there, because its between the inside and the outside of my jacket.

This might work, but beware, most stores do follow closing procedures and employees will be told to check the store for customers. You will have to hide from unmotivated underlings while they do this and up to 45 minutes of your anus clenching and other closing procedures. Not to mention they might have additional security they put on during the night (my old wage-slave-store had motion detectors which are WAY cheaper than a camera system and cover everything). You would have to have intimate knowledge of a store to pull this off.

Technically I cannot condone illegal activity but if you are particularly desperate such as in a homelessness situation perhaps you can find use in something I call the phone game I recommend only doing this at low and dollar stores as a means of covertly shoplifting pic related

What you do is pretend you are texting on a phone the damn thing doesn't even after work it could be a toy phone for all I care this is simply so that if someone was trying to watch you they would simply think you are sending text messages perhaps to whoever you are shopping for now I've only seen cans of sardines be the right size to do the phone game but basically what you do is you grab two or three of the item that you want and then place your hands together like you are texting with both thumbs and then just slip the 1-2 cans of sardines behind the phone and take the remaining can and put it back on the Shelf where it belongs preferably facing forward flush with the rest of the product so it looks like you put everything back this will allow you to grab things even while people are watching you and they won't suspect a thing and then you can take your phone hand which everyone clearly sees you are feeling with your phone so then with simple sleight of hand or diversion whatever technical word you would like to use you can slip the phone into your pocket along with the tins of sardines and you can repeat this process pulling your phone back out later to pretend you are having more texts and repeat the process until your pockets are full enough to survive

Thank you for taking the time to listen and I hope you have a wonderful day

If they happen leave a box of something big empty on the floor... grab it.. fill it up with all the small things you want.. and pack it tight.

High risk, but huge reward.

Yes, you either pay for whatever the big box item is.. or you run with this box OUT THE BACK, not the front. but inside you packed it with stuff to make it worth your while. Go towards the hardware section.. clear pack tape the box. Go pay. A cart helps.

Many stores, the back exit is unwatched.. and if anyone stops you.. "my mom is bringing the car around for a pick up." etc.

Stealing from target is super easy, if you find the right one. Go in with a friend and a backpack.If there is no one at the security desk(there usually isn't) put your backpack in a cart and walk around the store like you're supposed to be there. Grab a bunch of random shit and anything you want to steal put in your bag(its easiest to do this in the clothing section). Then act like you forgot your wallet or something and walk out with your bag and leave the cart. As long as you don't take items with security tags you should be fine. Most targets near where I live are semi-understaffed on weekdays do they'll have security on restock. As long as you use your head and don't do anything stupid like go to the same target too frequently you should be fine

Modern Mom 18/04/22(Sun)16:09 No. 3174 ID: b41c80

Being/having a female helps. I've stolen so much shit in my purse. Go in with an empty purse only holding your wallet, phone, and some junk papers. Inconspicuously put items in your purse along the way. I like to hold the object in my hand, take my phone or paper out and hold them in the same hand, look around, then put both back in my purse. Before you check out, make the inside of your purse look all messy and junky as if everything's from your house. I've never even gotten my purse checked, but it's a good precaution.

You'll have to be more careful with this one, but I've stolen plenty of clothes in the dressing room. Wear the bare minimum of clothes such as a hoodie with nothing underneath. Take a huge stack in of clothes in. Try them on and put them under the clothes that you're wearing, but make sure that it doesn't look obvious. Walk out. I've easily stolen bras, swimsuits, and shirts this way. I feel like pants and leggings are harder, but they might be doable. This is another instance where being a woman helps because boobs/curves can help hide things.

I agree on the time of day - I feel like midmorning is usually best. Depending on the store, it will be too dead early morning and too busy around early afternoon.

Modern Mom 22/08/28(Sun)06:32 No. 3724 ID: 5d5c2c

Former Wal Mart employee here. I don't shoplift but people specifically go there to rip shit off. Can't be hard because their shrink is fucking ridiculous (iirc one year had 6 million in profit and lost over 1 million in stolen shit). Ever since muh covid when they built 20 self checkouts and only have 1 normal one that may or may not be open, it's probably far worse. They don't care and I'm still salty about being treated like shit and managers being petty tyrants so fuck em.

They do have loss prevention and some employees are brown nosers who absolutely will call them because they want to stand back smirking and watch the shit show. But for every one of those there are three who will see someone rip shit off right in front of them and give zero fucks. It's a game of chance if you don't know the employees but if you see them busy shooting the shit with each other while people are calling them or on their phones it's a pretty good clue they don't care. The gung ho ones are usually sour middle aged hags so if any are working you might not want to lift anything.

Most popular method for the big expensive stuff is to have an accomplice who sets off a loud theft alarm clear across the store as a distraction while you grab something expensive and book it out a fire exit or the garden center into a getaway vehicle. Alternatively if you see a miserable or teenage employee and offer them $50 to let you out the back that very well could work. Have some oopsies at the self check out if the cashier babysitting the area is occupied, but keep in mind there is a camera on the front of it so be discreet. If you have any excuse to push a kid around in a carriage you can stuff shit in there, just don't look sketchy. It also gives you an excuse to nip into the bathroom for an "emergency diaper change" and ditch some packaging. Worse comes to worse and they say something just act like you're salty because you don't know how to use self checkouts and hate them on principle.

If you're a real piece of shit you can do what some guy did when I was there: He waltzed into the back, into the break room, calmly microwaved someone's Hot Pockets in the fridge, sat down and ate, then swiped every wallet, ring, device or other valuable that people left in there and fucked off. No one challenged him because the turnover is so high that it's not weird to see new people. Fuck you if you do this but I'm just mentioning it's possible.

Most commonly stolen items and easiest to sell are expensive meat (mostly steaks), cosmetics, shit from the baby section, and probably clothes (especially really good bras). The shitty little chicklet things that set off the alarm can be peeled off and the spider wire can usually be yanked off too if you're determined. Act like you're one of those people who won't buy something unless you can first inspect the contents of the box. The meat and the makeup is often sold in bars around the area, barflies don't snitch. You find women looking for nice baby shit by joining those types of Facebook groups and messaging them privately (preferably not under your real name) if they're in the market for something you have. Just do not openly advertise it.

No matter what anons here are saying, if you advertise something you just stole in Craigslist or some shit you are absolutely retarded.
