Wal-Mart's Auto Parts: Swapped Premium Fram Filters

I was just browsing the Auto section and noticed that Wal-Mart has the Tough Guard Fram oil filters.

So I open up one and wasn't surprised that it has been SWAPPED to the regular filter. There was 3 more and it's not just Oil but the Air filters as well.

The difference is $2+ depending on the part. I brought it up when I got to the cashier and she said even if they did, they wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Just a heads up.

This has been a long standing issue at CT, and always comes up when they have the "free filter" deal with oil. It's sad that people resort to theft for such a small item.

Never thought I'd have to be checking oil filters before buying them but it looks like now I'll have to. People can be really sad sometimes.

Its gotten to the point where I insist on opening the box of any product I purchase while still in the store to make sure I am getting what I paid for.
