Sure, you’ve heard of break-ins where a TV or computer was stolen, but what about a brand new TV being stolen before you even leave the store? This scam involved a fake security guard and a fake sales associate. It goes something like this: after purchasing your big-ticket item, you’re heading out of the door when a security guard asks to check your receipt. While they are checking, a sales associate comes up and says they accidentally sold you a broken unit, and to follow them back to the warehouse to get a new one. Then, the associate speeds up and you lose sight of them, and then you turn around and notice the security guard and your purchase is gone!
