Who are the thievies stealing from wal-mart and some other stores? They steal things and take them back and then get a wal-mart card because they don't have the reciepts and then sell the wal-mart card.

I am sick of them too. THey are the same people that get welfare, food stamps, utility bill assistance, Tanf money, public housing and more while I work my butt off. Walmart has to charge us more to make up the difference. Walmart pays their employees less because of people stealing. I hope they die a slow horrible death.

How do you know people steal from walmart than take the stuff back and return it for gift cards? And what is it that people are stealing out of walmart anyways?

I KNOW this is very aggravating. Be happy you work at wal-mart, trust me when I tell you-places with less, or even no, security experience a very high rate of shoplifting. I know how truly upsetting this can be. I can't stand a thief.
Though you may not be able to point a finger on these people, you can come up with ways to let them know, you know. You could say things like, "wow. That item was a steal, at a really good price, you practically got out the door with it!" Etc. This might not catch the thief, but at least it would give you a little satisfaction.

Lowes was having that problem a fee yrs ago and they implemented a new system that told them when the last time an item was purchased so if you stole something and tried to bring it back without a receipt, if the item had not been purchased recently, they would know. Then they would ask you when you purchased it and the dumb thief would say "a few says ago" then the customer service Rep would know and refuse to give a gift card unless they could produce a receipt. It seems to be working.

walmart can do that also. When they scan an item the computer tells them when it was purchased.

I have never seen anything like that in walmart. Iv been in there several times and seen people return stuff for gift cards all iv seen them do is scan it and have you sign and that is it iv never seen them look and see when it was purchased.

it can tell them when the last time it was sold at the store they are at, but a lot of them steal from one wal mart and take it back at another wal mart. wal mart sercurity gets a lot more than you think Someone might get by with it once or twice but most of the time they get caught. And most of the time its people you would never think of stealing

I worked at walmart while I was in college, and I remember this really pretty blonde getting caught trying to steal a bunch of DVDs. She went into the bathroom with them and tried to hide the paper and tags in the back of the toilet. The security guards wear regular clothing and watch you a LOT more than you would think. I hope they all get caught. TRASH.....that's what Princeton seems to be full of these days.

I sure don't need any trouble with the law over it. Because of someone else stealing things. I would advise everyone don't buy them if people would not buy them than maybe the stealing would stop.

not so true, i know of people with money that will just steal things just to be doing it, so no need to put down people that do need assistance, THANKS

If that's true. Then they are worse than anybody. When a store has a high theft rate, the prices go up. Shame, shame!!!!!

I get a bunch of the unloaded cards. Have one with $500 on it. Walk up to people in parking lots and tell them I will sell it for $250 or however much they have. Let them call and check the number on the $500 card and hear that it has $500, then I pull a quick switch with the card with no money on it. Bet they feel real smart when they are putting back all them groceries after that card scans $0.00 hahaha piece of crap stolen property buyers.

The above story is fictional. I would never do that.

People also fold expensive stuff up and put it under cases of water or bags of dog food on the bottom of the cart. The cashier scans the big bag,never looks under the bag, the thief turns right and hurries away and out it goes.
