My magnetic detatcher is hidden inbetween my boobs lol. I’m wearing a jada dress from brandy and I don’t think you can tell that there’s a magnet there lol. Good idea or nah?

Fab idea, no one has a clue!

I’m so trying this out tonight

Anonymous: do you know any stores that have these magnet towers for sure?

Sadly, I don’t know. I think it would probably be high-end stores in major cities.

Anonymous: you know the photo you posted of the magnetic detector? Is it the smaller tower on the right or just the normal tower?

It’s the small glass one on the right!

Anonymous: Hi, I recently went to my ulta(monday), they had cameras (black dome ones) everywhere but I found a blind spot and only met 1 sa face to face. I want to go again on Weds and get some more palettes. Do you think it's a good idea or will it be risky?

Well if you lifted on Monday I suggest waiting a couple weeks to be safe. If you do want to go again say, next week I suggest buying something really small just to be safe. Just don’t get too cocky and stay super safe!

Anonymous: So I've lifted about $100-200 worth of stuff from Ulta and etc but concealing always feels like I look unnatural & suspicious. How can I conceal in a natural way? I have no problem finding a blind spot but concealing is super hard for me!Thank you for any help!!

You could try kneeling on the ground with your bag open next to you, then look at some products on the bottom shelves like you are reading the prices or about the product and then just slip what you want in your bag!

Shoplifting Tips from a Loss Prevention Officer

acquirerofthings:

Worst Techniques

  • Wearing out articles of clothing.
  • Opening packages and putting the item in your bag/pockets/whatever. Seriously, don’t take things out of packages. If there are security tags on the packaging, take them off, but for the love of god stop taking things out of packages and leaving behind the empty boxes. It’s really obvious.
  • Carrying whatever it is you’re going to steal around the store for ages looking for a nice empty aisle to conceal it in. Walking around with a bunch of video games in the bath towels makes what you’re about to do fairly obvious.
  • If you were in my store, and you draped your jacket over the stuff in your cart, I’d definitely watch you. People do that kind of stuff to hide what their hands are doing (opening packages, tearing off security sensors, etc).

Best Techniques

  • Make you you actually look like you’re shopping. If you aren’t looking at the prices of items and you’re just grabbing whatever it is you want off the shelf, it looks like a red flag.
  • Concealing the stuff that you want to steal while you’re in line waiting to pay for something else. If we’re following you, and you get in line to pay for all of your stuff, we’re probably going to stop watching you at that point.
  • Don’t take things out of packages! it takes too much time, it makes noise, you leave the the empty package behind and if we see you set down an empty package, even if we didn’t see you stuff the item in your bag/pockets, we’ll probably apprehend you.
  • If you’re going to conceal the merchandise on your person somehow, don’t leave the store right away after you do this. Chill out, browse, use the bathroom (a lot of retail stores have policies like this— once you go into the bathroom, it’s over, we’ve technically lost sight of you). If we lose you for a while, it’s very dangerous to make the apprehension— stores face a huge liability if loss prevention apprehends someone and they decided not to steal the item and left it in the store somewhere.
  • Steal during busy hours of the day, when there are lots of people shopping.
  • Also, if you’re youngish (under 22 or so) and with a group of similarly aged friends, don’t even try. The second a group of teenagers walks in, we’re probably watching them.
  • If you’re going to hide the merchandise on your person somehow, DO IT WHILE YOU’RE WALKING. Don’t stop, look around, and then stuff it. I cannot stress this one enough. It is much harder to see what you’re doing if you’re walking around from aisle to aisle, especially if loss prevention is following you around on foot instead of with CCTV.
  •  I’d recommend not concealing merchandise in the bathrooms, but definitely using them after concealing merchandise, because it’s a break in surveillance. I’d recommend concealing a couple things that you don’t really want in addition to what you DO want (on the sales floor, not in the bathrooms), and then leaving the items you don’t want in the bathrooms, because they will check the stalls. Confusion is key!

*disclaimer: I bought almost all of this makeup with my own money*

The ones in the back have my palettes in them since they have to be put in individually. Still needs some work and there’s stuff I can’t find right now. This is only my highend makeup as well.

This is beautiful

Anonymous: I heard that some stores have magnet detectors that sends a silent signal when you go in. How do you know if a store has such a detector?

image     This is what they look like! Considering they are silent I would stay away from them or you can walk in with a huge group of people and get away from the entrance as fast as possible, same with leaving the store! What ever you do be safe!!
