Just pointing out that this could work if they returned the merchandise to a different wal-mart on the following day.

Yeah, that's why the counterfeiters qualify as incredibly stupid.

Not too many Wal*Marts are so quick on the draw either, tho'. I've known people who bought books from order-by-mail book clubs, read them once, and then returned them to the local Wally World. The folks at the customer service desk didn't even blink.
