i dont see how it is an "internet scam" it seems more like a retail scam
the people buying stuff from him were not scammed they got their stuff
so am i to assume he would buy expensive sets and cheap sets change the barcodes and take the cheap ones back
quite ingenious took a lot of guts to walk into a store and scam the return counter person
it might have worked better to buy a couple sets then sneak back in with the bag and recipt and steal a couple more durin busy times
for him to hit 5 states he musta used a lot of gas

He switched the barcodes in the store, then bought the expensive sets with the cheap barcode. The article did not say anything about returning sets with the wrong barcode.

Yeah, he got money for the sets by selling on bricklink, not returning them.
