You said: "You really can't figure that out on your own?
A cashier can reprint a cash sales receipt that has multiple items on it from the register and put it in their pocket. The next day (or later that day) they can run the receipt through as a cash return and pocket the money."
That looks to me like a system design flaw/failure. That is a management problem, not the customer's. What don't you understand about that?
You said: "If you don't have one of their serialized receipts, Walmart will require an ID before they will issue a cash receipt."
I have never had to (nor will I ever) show ID for a cash purchase, particularly for such a small amount. AND, I always insist on a receipt. PERIOD!
Now, my wife worked in retail sales for K-mart and JC Penny for the better part of 20 years. During those years, I heard many stories of attempted retail fraud and outright shoplifting. Some were rather scary. In one case, a manager overrode my wife rejecting a return with no receipt for an item the store did not stock or sell because, "the customer is always right". Poor management, again!
We can go on and on with this verbose nonsense if you like, and apparently you do.
BTW, I have NEVER given them my telephone number during ANY purchase, cash or credit.
