    The store staff should have known better to check the console before actually handing him over the $400.00.. I wouldn't be surprised if the employee working there at the time got fired..

    Heh. You think they would be able to see that the 360 was mostly empty, if they would actually check.

    You would think so. However, in this case the staff obviously weren't thinking.

    I would personally congratulate him on such an excellent plan. If the store employees don't carry out their jobs properly, then there will always be people like this who will easily walk around them.

    lol thats good stuff... like some people said they atleast plug the system up and make sure its turned on... now what im thinking he cased this store out for awhile seen how they handled returns and who did them and who had the least experience and then he made his move on the female or was working who had little experience... kudos to this guy!

    The clerk was probably mentally ill. I'm not sure any strait person could take that broken 360 and give a person $400 for it. As Syntax mentioned, he was probably fired shortly after this incident.

    Hmm, I suspect the police will be visiting him shortly. I say this because every store I know who accepts returns requires your name, address, phone number and ID verification (usually write down your driver's license number too).

    Just because they accepted the items and gave him his money back doesn't release him from liability of theft, which is what he did.
