I work at Walmart and I always give buyers an anti-theft trick to stop stealing, they still ask a stupid question

A WALMART employee has shared how she gives shoppers the opportunity to be honest when they suspect they are stealing items.

The supermarket worker warned that persistent offenders face consequences.

TikTokerin Becca (@becemo) said she pauses self-checkouts if she suspects shoppers are stealing goods.

She told how shoppers who repeatedly attempt to steal are dragged into the store’s offices and questioned.

Becca criticized buyers who asked her so-called stupid questions during an investigation.

Questions she alluded to included, “Am I banned for life” and “Do you call the police?”

Becca nodded as both questions appeared on the video screen.

The influencer was seen speaking the lyrics to the 1991 Sly and the Family Stone-produced track Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You.

She urged shoppers not even to try to steal goods when using self-checkout.

Walmart employees use TikTok to warn shoppers they know when shoppers are trying to steal goods.

Employees have explained how they can use their handheld device to monitor shopper behavior at the checkout.

Another worker known as Bre (@brebre42010), said she can use the handheld tool to see which grocery shoppers are checking out.

Patrolling self-service checkouts by store associates is just one way Walmart is trying to combat theft.

Signs have been put up in shops warning customers of the impact of theft on prices, and expensive goods have been wrapped in cords and fitted with an alarm.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon warned in December last year that thefts had reached “historically high” levels.

Recently, Walmart US President John Furner revealed how the company is taking steps to mitigate its impact on customers.

However, he cautioned that a community-based, multi-party approach is needed.

Furner said, “It will require communities to take action and enforce the law to bring this issue under control.”

The move comes as theft continues to be a problem for retailers, not just Walmart.

The bosses of The Home Depot and Target lamented the impact of theft on the big chains.
