    Florida woman buys Walmart electronics worth $1,8 -- but pays less than $5, police say | Fox News

    I like how she said she wanted to buy something nice for her family but couldn't afford it, but her husband bought her a Coach purse. SMH

    I thought this was going to be an extreme couponing article. I was wrong.

    Did she not think some eyebrows would be raised with those savings??

    Wonder how she was caught? Im assuming she was stupid enough to go through the cashiers line and not a self scanner(if there was one). We bought some goods from a local Home Depot once, when we got home the misses looks at the receipt and notices they either didnt scan decently priced item or it didnt take. I said sweetness sometimes you get lucky. The wife did a "not so fast my friend" and promptly drove it back.

    Yeah, if you're going to do something like that, you find a similar item at a much lower price. Granted the savings wouldn't have been as much, but it'd be less likely to raise eyebrows at the register.

    She swapped out discounted item bar codes and went through the Self Checkout lane.

    Happens all the time.

    We caught two teenage girls in London from very affluent families taking .25 cent stickers off of plastic cups and placing them on cosmetics once. They paid about $6 for $400+ worth of makeup at the self checkout.

    One other case there were two couples paying the boyfriend of a cashier to have her let them through her register without paying for everything. In just over 4 weeks we determined through video review that she allowed them to get well over $10,000 in unpaid for merchandise, including DVD's, cart loads of meat, clothing and power tools. She would ring one item and put 10 or 15 in a bag without ringing them up...2nd biggest internal case that I ever worked.

    I hope in both cases they had a view behind metal bars.

    It kind of makes you wonder if these people would put their ingenuity to something positive instead of trying to get away with theft. Good for video review! It's sad this stuff happens all the time.
