It's pretty much risk-free because if they ask you for proof or to send it back you just make up some excuse (it's fine now!).

What have you gotten so far?

Email them and say it broke dude

Just make up a believable story, it works more often you think. It's that simple. To get multiple headsets I just told the company the sound only worked on my one side then you get it senpai

@Spazyfool
Funny cause that's actually what happened with mine. Do you have them send it to your address? Wouldn't they eventually get suspicious of sending their merchandise for free to his one address? Think someone could get a PS3/4 like this? What's a believable story for that?

Depends and varies

Best to call them but spamming out emails to many companies is good too. I mean $10 voucher isn't much but when you get 20+ of them at once it can be nice

@MPmaster
Typical problems that would occur with a product, best to call them though in most cases

and by this I mean any fucking company will ask you for proof of purchase if you're complaining about something being broken. Even for shitty logitech peripherals.

And saying something is broken is the only thing that will get you a refund.

@5mileys
It wont, retard

I've gotten tons of shit, I know it seems too easy to be true but it's how it is. Some companies do ask to send it in but there is loads that don't, they do ask for serial numbers often times which there are ways to get or you can say it scratched off/you threw the item out in some cases like headsets, they can also ask for receipts which you can photoshop or use a generator for amazon receipts. A

Alternatively just try to get on their good side and they might let it slide, many of the employees are Indians working in a callcenter so they don't give much of a shit. Bitch to supervisor etc

How did you get a monitor/tablet exactly? Pls help.

Illusionz

@Stupidasole
I obtained a serial for a monitor that still had warranty on it then called them telling them it stopped working, went through troubleshooting (need to say that the ac adapter works but monitor doesn't so they don't think that's the issue" then after all that they transfer you to a supervisor who confirms it all and sends you a new monitor.

Get it in like a week, tracking sent to email. Stupidly easy

Spazyfool

@likme

How in the name of fuck are they sending you shit like electronics worth hundreds with zero proof of you ever purchasing anything?

What you're doing is very interesting, pretty immoral but I respect what you've done, you've managed to get a load of free shit with basically no risk, this doesn't even count as fraud.

Lunatick

@Spazyfool
It's not as difficult as it seems, really quite simple actually. The only hard part is probing different companies.

When you find a good company and a good method it's just doing it repeatedly, which is boring on hold/saying the same shit each phonecall 5+ times a day - you need to pretend to be fiddling around with it, troubleshooting, saying shit like "Hold on let me put the phone to get it/turn it around /whatever. (when in reality I just mute my mic and look for a porn video then "come back" and jack off while "troubleshooting" or sitting on hold)

Pretty funny actually,kek

You do the same thing repeatedly to companies? You have drops and stuff?

I don't think that's much of a concern really. I don't see this as a serious crime and I don't think anyone would really waste time pursuing such a thing

Well, you're kind of like a real-life bug bounty hunter, except you just keep getting paid. Fucking nice one, that's some real social engineering.

@Sir_Gallonhead

Imagine how dumb a company would feel telling law enforcement that they sent out units to someone without even asking for proof. Its shameful, they wouldn't bother with this anyway for just 1 or 2 units. There's little chance of them ever finding out anyway though.

massdebater

@takes2long
I guess you're right but that seems much more wrong morally and legally, and riskier as well.

Pay with stolen cc
It gets chargebacked by bank when customer/bank realizes the problem
Flag lights up for company, they did not get paid in the end (losing money)
Investigation occurs

As opposed to a company willingly sending you an item in good faith because they believe you are a customer who had an issue with his product. Much different

likme

@massdebater
Yeah but what happens if they notice a discrepancy with the serials/story you provide, manufacturing/purchase date or something.

Or some guy later tries to claim the warranty and you've already done it. You're permanently in the system and the risk that you'll get fucked won't disappear for years. The hope would be that they just don't care enough to investigate but there are plenty of examples of corporations being petty and litigious.

That said, I'm going to try to steal a monitor. Have you got any hard drives? How do you get the serial for that.
