Today, I had gone to the store and bought a new wallet. 5 minutes later a security guard asks for my receipt. Turns out I had dropped my receipt. Some guy had picked it up and pretended I had stole his wallet. The guard confiscated my wallet because the guy had "his" receipt to prove it. FML

why were you in the store hanging around 5 minutes after you checked out anyways?

Reciets have your name on it. He could have shown his id

or if he used a debit or credit card he could just match the last digits of the card to the reciept as well

Unless he paid in cash

Wow that other guy is a total DBAG

Yeah talk to the person that rung you up if it was that recent or request to talk to a supervisor to review the security tape. Also if you used a CC then the last 4 digits on the card would be on there and you could prove that it was yours. Sorry that FML sucks though

omg, yea i would talk to that salesperson. hope you got back what is rightfully yours!

salesperson.....

Cameras and the salesperson. That's bullshit. Also, your wallet should have pictures of you in it.

If you just let that douchebag take your wallet, then I don't know what to tell you. They must have security tapes showing you purchasing the wallet. Especially if you used a credit card, that should be more than enough to prove that you purchased it. Had you put anything in the wallet before it was confiscated?

As #1 pointed out ... BS ALERT!

all I have to say is.... WTF? This is why most of the time I ask for my receipt in the bag. But I understand how thats not possible for a wallet. BTW, did you pay for the wallet by cash or card? Cos if you paid by card your name (as it appears on the card) should be on the receipt.
