Other Return Frauds- Alpha Shark Tag

Wardrobing primarily focuses on clothing that was purchased with the intent of being worn only one time and then being returned for a full refund. However, there is more to this kind of return fraud than just clothes. Surprisingly, electronics are also targeted for one time use. Since Alpha Shark Tag (by Alpha Security) is designed to target clothing returns, electronics are still an unfortunate target of return fraud.
In a recent news article a story was shared about a gentleman bought an expensive projector for a client presentation at his work. After carefully saving and memorizing where every piece of plastic and twist tie went, he proceeded to package up this projector exactly as it was originally boxed. 
This was, of course, after he had used it for the presentation. His boss had even applauded his ingenuity at saving the company money for not having to actually buy that particular piece of equipment.
In this particular situation, the merchandise would appear to be brand new. If there had been anything damaged – known or unknown- it wouldn’t be until the next customer purchased this projector and tried to use it. The store would be left with an unhappy customer as well as defective merchandise.
