Last night, as I was checking out at my local grocery store, I noticed the gentleman standing at the next cashier. His SF Giants cap initially drew my attention, but then I noticed the case of beer sitting on the bottom shelf of his shopping cart. Soon enough, he left the store without paying.
Maybe it was an honest mistake. He just forgot, and once he got to his car and saw the beer, he would head back in to pay. Or, he would decide that the hassle of going back in wasn’t worth it, throw the beer in his trunk, and go on with his day.
BUT what if this was an ongoing scam?
