    Default Re: Detained for and Accused of Return Fraud

    Let's say for grins that this woman does return a very large amount of items. And let's say, just for grins, that she did, in fact, consciously switch the tags from a purchased item to another item not purchased at that store and returned that item (either with or without a receipt), but that most (95%) of the returns she made were legitimate. If that hypothetically did happen, what is her risk and exposure? And can the store extrapolate from those items that all the other items she returned had the same thing happen and charge her with that. And what are the possible charges and consequences of her having done that? Perhaps they have the returned item upon which she switched the tags as evidence.

    she can only be charged with a crime there is evidence of. That means no extrapolating the possibility the other items were fraudulent returns without some proof. As to what, if any evidence they have; only they know

    Which is fine, but missed the basic point here. Once they knew she was a theft risk, they would go back and check all footage of her being in the store if she paid with credit or used the service desk whenever plausible. So, they may be able to build on suspicions by following her exact moments every visit. If she grabs something in store and uses a prior receipt, there's another instance. It's what the LP/AP would need to research before even conducting a in-store stop. To a certain point it may not be worth it or possible to prove criminally, but in a civil court that same video may get your money back and that isn't so bad considering. Now you know who she is and she's in the system, for future use if needed.
