If receipt checks help them catch thieves, then I have no problem with voluntarily complying.

I just smile, and tell them to check the cameras. I'm not mean, or degrading to them. I just say that, and keep on walking. Works every time. If like he said, I'm in a store with a membership card... well that changes everything... I'll let them check my receipt in that case.

Wow, so many folks here just can't wait to comply to more BS. "Please sir, may I buy some things from your store, oh and when you have my money please still treat me like a thief." It's fuckin sad. Nobody needs to take your liberties, you're happy to give them away. Land of the free my ass. Land of the sad sheeple

My problem is the germs exchanged. The person who is taking the receipt, looking at it, then handing it back to you is also handing you every microbe they have received from every shopper before you. That little piece of paper is a carrier.

I no longer shop at the place that has receipt checkers.

I know a lady that USE TO go in a Walmart and purchase 5 items and keep the receipt. Then she would go back in and get the same 5 items and slip them into a Walmart bag along with the receipt then show the checker and out she went.
She didn't need money but was only seeing if she could get away with it.

Re: STOP Showing A Receipt As You Leave A Store!
I got into it with a wally world 'greeter' one day. I said what exactly is the probably cause for you checking my receipt against the contents of my cart. They said..well a few thing are not in bags hence the probable cause. Well they were TOO LARGE to be in bags. I made sure I gave the poor schlep as much grief as possible but they are just a 10/hr stooge

Re: STOP Showing A Receipt As You Leave A Store!
A few weeks ago I was in a hurry with a big cart of groceries...trying to balance so stuff wouldn't fall off as I'm pushing the cart. The guy said to me "Ma'am I need to check your receipt for the water under your cart." I said "no" and just kept walking then the beeper went off I had no clue why as I don't steal...but I still kept walking because I was in a hurry, nobody came after me and it was probably the movie I bought anyway...

Wan Mart takes pics everywhere in store. In some states they are filing criminal charges and getting warrants for people at self checkouts whose face can be associated with an account number and tracked. People who had problems and no one to help them.

They get a traffic stop and find out they have outstanding warrants from a fucking faulty check out at Wan Mart.

Google it.

Walmart and other companies have created well-oiled operations, hiring law firms to send tens of thousands of letters a year. Walmart set a collection goal of about $6 million in 2016 for one of its go-to firms, Palmer Reifler & Associates, according to a court paper filed as part of a lawsuit Ms. Thompson brought against the retailer. The firm also pointed out to Walmart that minors tended to pay off more frequently, the filing said...

...Mr. McDonald said that if Ms. Thompson’s daughter took the groceries without scanning them properly, it was by mistake. Video surveillance, reviewed by The New York Times, shows her daughter trying to scan and rescan groceries at the checkout machine for about 17 minutes.

Walmart has not filed shoplifting charges against Ms. Thompson’s daughter.

“They are playing games with people’s future,” Ms. Thompson said.


So for 17 minutes no one will help her But they will pay a goopy lawyer to basically extort 200 bucks.

This is rampaging capitalism.

Why not? I don't steal. As a poster above stated, don't like the policy then shop elsewhere.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28816501


Very recently, I was at a store and had one bag, three items.
I was asked to show my receipt, which I did. THEN the lady
dumps the items from my bag on the floor, and rifled through
them as if I had something hidden in them. It was HUMILIATING
since a couple of the items were going to be gifts for the person
standing next to me. I doubt I will ever go to that WalMart again.
I HAD used the self check out. I am mature but have never
shoplifted in my life.

I was not unkind to the store greeter, but I did want to rage at
her, for her silent insinuation.

If you don't like store policy shop elsewhere. It's called free enterprise for a reason. Go down the street.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73853635

The crazy issue with Walmart's checking of receipts (only in some stores in some areas) is that, for a year or so, Walmart was actively encouraging shoppers to use self-serve checkout and phone-only Walmart Pay. This is, of course, a recipe for customer theft!

I recently noticed that Walmart Pay now gives me a message saying something like, "You may have to show this bar code on exit." That now makes Walmart Pay more trouble than simple credit card usage (which produces a paper receipt).

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78139757


It is your problem idiot. If stores could not check if items were purchased then internal and external thefts would cripple the store. It would either have to increase prices of close down. This would mean wholesale loss of jobs which would impact all the businesses the terminated ex employees used. The cars they drive to the house or apartment they live in. But all that doesn't matter to you. Next time a cop pulls you over, refuse to show current insurance. They are demanding you show proof you purchased something, insurance. Of all the ills in this world, asking to show you bought something is your concern. However if the biz world loses enough and petition for a law to mandate showing purchases were made, then it's ok. That stupidity is why we volumes of laws, civil and criminal.

You have an implied contract when entering the store & possibly making a purchase. In exchange for that purchase, you prove who you are (if paying check or some forms of card), that you have the money to purchase, and that you purchased the goods prior to leaving the store with the goods.

If you do not want to show a receipt, shop somewhere which does not require it.
