Wow, people really do go to a lot of trouble to scam money. Its amazing that if they just worked, they’d make money.
Working harder to keep from working.
only in China...
Usually the store blames the new purchaser for trying to scam the store. Maybe they tracked the individual serial number at the time of purchase and original return instead of just scanning the UPC so they knew this one had been purchased and returned previously.
One of the longest waits to return something I've had in a long time, but it was entertaining - the tears, the denial and blaming it on her husband, and then the cop arresting her and going out to get the husband too. (The cop was on duty in the store for some reason- I'm guessing to deal with shoplifting) Oh and btw the guilty couple were not 0bama's relatives. They should have just charged it on their EBT card.
I had something like this happen to me at Walmart about a year ago. My daughter needed some black leggings and we bought a pair at Walmart. When she got home, she opened the package and found a ripped up pair of leggings that someone had obviously switched out at the store. When I tried to return them, I was pretty much accused of switching them myself. I ended up in tears at customer service. It wasn’t the money; I felt as if my integrity was being questioned. I’m one of those people who obeys the speed limit, never steals extra straws from McDonald’s, etc., lol. It was humiliating!
***They believe the previous owner wrapped a fake device and re-sealed it so perfectly that it looked as if the item hadn’t even been opened. ***
I had that happen with a package of computer printer ink at WM last year. I bought it, took it home and opened it.
I immediately noticed the interior package was already tore open. A closer look showed that the black and white ink was gone, and replaced with an empty colored ink package, then glued back together so carefully it looked normal.
Walmart gave me a replacement for it.
When it arrived, I examined the contents to make sure everything was "like new". The condition was fine, except that DVDs from the previous DVD version of Ben-Hur had been substituted for the Blu-ray discs. Fortunately, Amazon took it back and issued a full refund. Still don't know if the scammer was the Amazon seller; or if the seller had been scammed.
I think from now on I’m going to open my packages at the store to make sure the item I bought is actually in there.
Oh, that was the non-WiFi version. not for sale in this country.
Unfortunately I sent them USPS 3 day Prioity mail with no tracking info or insurance and the seller claimed he never received them.......I never got my money back so that was a lesson learned....LOL!
The box would have the serial number on it, and IIRC, Apple builds technology into iPads to be able to track them if they’re stolen (sort of an Internet based “Low Jack.”
Hopefully, Apple will work with local authorities and Walmart to send the thief to the Gray Bar Motel for a long vacation.

JERRY: A Willard? Saccamano, Sr. screwed me!
We got caught once when we bought a food processor from either K-Mart or Wal-Mart. Got it home and there was still dried food on the machine. We did get a refund.
