I have recently started buying clothes (jackets, pants and shirts) to wear on few occasions and then return them. It feels like all nice stuff are overpriced... Some stores very easy to return. Have you guys done that?

Right now retail stores are having a hard time competing against online stores like Amazon. Perhaps, sometime in the future, there will be no retail stores where people can go and actually try on clothes? Any scheme, like trying and then returning, clothes (or any other product) just makes it more difficult for these stores to compete and hastens the end of good retail stores.

Don't forget that when these stores disappear that you could buy online products somebody else used. Of course you would not know that until you received the product or clothing. Yes you could return it; but you wasted your time and made shopping more difficult and frustrating.

All I am saying is that you should look at the big picture and ask yourself if this is what you really want?

Okay..You seem to believe that IF you can away with something..actually morally wrong..then IF caught..claim some sort of excuse..like prejudice or Ignorance..

I say, what is IGNORANT >is pulling stunts like this!! It's is corrupt thinking..using merchandise..then claim..whoopsey..wrong size or another lie..SHAME SHAME!!

Bottomline..Deceitful and actually in the end proves more about your morals then anything else..You know..RIGHT from Wrong..Golden Rule...Do unto others..business or anyone else..PUT yourselves in their shoes for once!!

Your User name says it all really..and you wonder why you feel alone and sad I'd venture to say..because you do things that betray your better side and KNOW IT!!

Buy, Wear, Then Return? Retailers Crack Down -- The Cut#


So OP, since you've now admitted to chronic and persistent unethical behavior can we assume you will no longer start threads lecturing those with whom you disagree politically about ethics?

Or do you have a blind spot when it comes to your unethical and disgraceful behavior?

You do realize that one of the reasons for the high prices you complained about is because of you, and people like you, who practice this unethical behavior?

No.

I think that's dishonest, unethical, and essentially theft.

Shame on you.

NO, and it's very much possible that you won't be doing it much longer. It's called a Return Fraud.
Return abuse is a form of a fraud where someone purchases products without intending to keep them. Perhaps the most well-known form of this abuse is “wardrobing” or “renting” – in which the person makes a purchase, uses the product(s), and then returns or exchanges the merchandise.
To combat this crime wave, many stores now require customers to show government-issued identification, such as a driver's license, to make a return. That information may be entered into a database to target "serial" returners.
People who return their stuff too often, could be blacklisted, and future returns denied.
https://www.mainstreet.com/article/r...avorite-stores

Returns are monitored by The Retail Equation. A Return Activity Report is a history of your return and exchange transactions posted in stores using Verify Return Authorization. The report lists return activity information including the stores you have returned to and, for each return, the date and time, whether it was receipted or non-receipted, and the dollar amount.
Though many companies have employed specific tactics to curb this unethical practice, nearly three-quarters (72.7%) of retailers polled say they have experienced wardrobing in the past year, up from 62.1 percent last year.
