There are many different kinds of returns consider a fraud.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Return_fraud

These are only some of them
  • Wardrobing or renting: Purchasing merchandise for short-term use with the intent to return the item, such as a dress for a special occasion, a video camera for graduations and weddings or a big-screen television for the Super Bowl.[3]
  • Returning stolen merchandise: Shoplifting with the objective to return the item(s) for full price, plus any sales tax.
  • Receipt fraud: Utilizing reused, stolen or falsified receipts to return merchandise for profit. Alternatively, returning goods purchased on sale or from a different store at a lower price with the intention of profiting from the difference.
  • e-receipt fraud: Utilizing e-receipts issued when purchasing goods online, but returning them in store, to return merchandise for profit. A variation of the receipt fraud using the e-receipts.
  • Employee fraud: Assistance from employees to return stolen goods for full retail price.
  • Price switching: Placing higher priced labels on merchandise with the intention of returning the item(s) at a higher price than purchase.
  • Price arbitrage: Purchasing differently priced, but similar-looking merchandise and returning the cheaper item as the expensive one.
  • Switch fraud: Purchasing a working item, and returning a damaged or defective identical item that was already owned.
  • Cross-retailer return: Returning or exchanging an item purchased at another retailer (usually at a lower price) for cash, store credit or a similar, higher-priced item at another retailer.
The Richmond Costco always requires the online receipt before they give me a refund. I think it is on their " Online return policy". Sometimes they send me home if I didn't print out the receipt.
Can u be sent to jail?

I believe it is up to the retail stores to accept or deny returns, they have the rights to deny and they hav policy for that. If I have my own shop and a return has been made, it's not the custumer fault if you agree to refund him

If you got caught and they decided to "sue" you, you might be able to go to jail or get fined. Any frauds less than $5000 can be in jail for up to 2 years or something like that. Usually, they don't sue you because it is a long process and cost money.

Is it me or did Costco remove the gift cards? I can't find any Amazon, Best Buy, etc.
Costco doesn't carry amazon/best buy gift cards normally, no?

if you are not sure, i really don't think you should be disseminating false/inaccurate information.

your wikipage is for US law and the sources do not support some of the illegality claims at all. For example, with wardrobing or renting, the source [3] is simply an article from 2008 that says the practice costs retailers and consumer money. not a single mention that the practice is illegal.

no store like that will sue you from a small infraction and may just ban you, because of bad publicity.

Yes, exactly. You can use any MasterCard; it doesn't have to be a Costco issued MasterCard. The point of this promotion is to get people to sign up to MasterPass. Whether it's "quicker" is questionable.

In the past, when I've run into online sites that required MasterPass to pay via credit card, I usually just said, "Screw it", and used PayPal/MasterCard instead. I think someone at MasterCard finally clued in, or at least, convinced Costco it was a good thing.
Actually it doesn't have to be a Mastercard in masterpass.
