From Reddit: Walmart has a better view than Target.
From the comments: My brother is Target security, cameras don't see into the dressing rooms.
Fearsome Bitch Custy on the TV show Hardcore Pawn tries to get her "purse" out of hawk by attempting to climb over the counter and steal it! The custy and sales associate said the word "purse" so many times my ears began to bleed. They were pointing to Coach bags and nowhere in the world of Coach are they called "purses!" LOL Having sold designer handbags at The Big Fancy for so many years, I would have been sent to Purse Detention for saying it that many times! Hilarious scene!
How low can you go to do that to a girl scout? What is wrong with the scammers and theives of Sothern California! Don't they have children too? First we have a guy pulling a gun on a girl scout at the door, another guy calling one a hooker, and now there are people buying their cookies with fake cash! They will have to all now go through counterfit fit bill training just like we did at our stores! And they will need armed security guards at their table which will be covered in protective plastic glass. Girl Scout Cookie selling of the future...
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (KABC) -- At least two local crooks managed to swipe cookies and cash from a Girl Scout troop in Rancho Cucamonga using counterfeit money.
The Girl Scouts had just begun their annual cookie drive. Not only did the thieves buy several boxes of cookies with counterfeit money, but they also asked for change to be made.
"The girls are heartbroken," said troop leader Cheryl Williams. "Because they do trust, this is a life lesson for them."
The incident happened last Saturday after troops set up a table outside a local grocery store. A man and woman passed off the $50 counterfeit bills within minutes of each other.
Williams says the transaction seemed innocent enough.
"(The girls) used the counterfeit pen on the money, and it worked," Williams said.
They had been on the lookout for this type of crime after another troop was hit.
Law enforcement is reviewing surveillance video taken from the store in the hopes of identifying the suspects. Rancho Cucamonga Police Capt. Anthony Onodera said they also reached out to the troop to provide training on spotting counterfeit money.
The troop believes they are out a little more than $200 from the incident, and Williams said the girls are liable for that money.
LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (KABC) -- A second case of crooks using counterfeit cash to purchase Girl Scout cookies has come to light in the Inland Empire.
Deputies on Tuesday released surveillance images of a person of interest seen at a shopping mall Feb. 27 in Lake Elsinore. The photos show a young woman with long black hair, jeans, sneakers and a black hooded sweatshirt. No names or other identifying details have been released.
Authorities say unknown suspect(s) bought several boxes of Girl Scout cookies with counterfeit money in that area. The suspect(s) had already fled when deputies arrived.
From Huff Po:
A new phishing scam targeting Netflix subscribers preys on our blind trust of customer service representatives when it comes to our personal information.
Users being targeted by the scam will see a phony webpage modeled after the Netflix login page. When a user enters Netflix account info, the scam site claims that the user's Netflix account has been suspended due to "unusual activity" and then provides a fake customer service number. When the user calls that number, a representative on the phone recommends a download of "Netflix support software," which is actually remote login software that gives the scammers complete access to your computer. The scammers may also ask for copies of photo IDs or credit cards.
Here's the fake page that users targeted by the scam see after they've attempted to enter their Netflix login info:
Jérôme Segura of Malwarebytes Unpacked first noticed the scam on Feb. 28 and made a handy video (above) to protect customers from falling for it. He told The Huffington Post that users might stumble across the fake site via a link in a phishing email, pop-up window or ad.
Segura says that while he was on the phone with the "rogue representatives," they were busy searching his computer for things like banking information or lists of passwords.
There are plenty of red flags here to warn customers that something is awry, but for those who are too trusting of the voice on the other end of the customer service line, check out Segura's video for highlights from the call.
A good rule to remember is to not be too trusting when it comes to giving out personal information. Avoid letting someone remotely control your computer, don't send pictures of your ID or credit cards over the Internet and be sure to double check URLs in the address bar of your browser. Also, anyone can look up the real Netflix customer service number and see that it doesn't match the scammers' number.
From the video taker:
I'd just like to say this. Before confronting a shoplifter please make sure you are 110% sure the person is actually attempting to commit a crime. Lol. I am well trained in loss prevention and have caught, detained or have had prosecuted over 200 little bitches just like this one.
Doing this type of thing could be dangerous. So please be ready to upper cut someone if they pull out a weapon. :)
I'd like to note on there the SSC she gave me was not hers. And that I have confirmed she is out on bail right now. Fact.

This clip shows a suspected shoplifter being confronted. Hard to say since we only see this part and not from when this guy thought it started. It does seem she is given one package she pulls out is apart...
Some people support him, others say he was too mean/ went too far.
What do you guys think? Would you confront if you suspected it and weren't an employee of that shop, or would you tell an employee?
Have you ever gone shopping and used another item like a bag or tote to hold the smaller ones?
