A few years ago one of our large serviced offices in Salford Quays (shared office building) 2 delivery guys turn up to deliver a large 55 plasma tv to one of the meeting rooms. Turns out the box they brought in was empty and they actually stole a plasma screen (taking it away in the box theyd previously brought in). The nerve of some people!

Also whilst at the same company (in the south), obviously staff had individual desks with drawers built in. Wed all leave our files & personal effects and usually our keys were left in the drawers as we all implicitly trusted each other. But things started to go missing- loose change, food, gift cards, mobile phones and other things. However the only CCTV was in our stock room (and quite hidden - most workers didnt realise it was there including me!) & not the office area itself. Security fortunately view that footage and found 2 cleaners transferring stolen goods into a rubbish bag in order to get them out of the building.

I work for a company that supplies to retail (we own the brand). One of our customers is a mail order catalogue. The way it works is the consumer orders from the catalogue company, they then send it to us electronically and we ship the goods to the customer. If the consumer returns it, they do so directly to us but the catalogue company refunds them. One customer ordered a 55 pair of sheepskin slippers. They sent them back but when our returns department opened the box, it contained a horrible, dirty, old pair of cheap slippers. So this customer had her 55 refunded by the catalogue company AND had the slippers. There was no paperwork in the box and we sell so many, we couldnt trace it back to identify the consumer.

My mum used to work for Kays catalogue and this used to happen quite often with expensive trainers.

If I see anyone shoplifting I go straight to find a shop assistant to tell them. Once there was no one around so I shouted to this lowlife shoplifter oi, are you gonna pay for that or what? He ran off.
Dont forget that ultimately its us, the honest paying customers who pay for these thefts in the prices at the till because they will pass on the loses to us.

Dougie's Reviews

One if the funniest for me was when I moved to a new Safeway store as a Supervisor I was warned there were a gang of people doing box trolleys (Putting cereal around the inside walls of the trolley, filling the middle with expensive alcohol and then putting multi buy bags if crisps , so it looks inexpensive). Anyway, I was chatting with a customer when someone ran out of the door straight into the back of a van with one. By the time the security were alerted they had gone... but the funny bit Is, the lad at the bottom if the car park had charged them 50p to get out if the car park .

The other one was a Code 100 had been called and all male staff ran to the exit ... all to see a little old man shuffling out with a 'Ladies' mag shoved in his coat. The security lad never lived it down for calling it.
