A tale as old as…….systems.

Everyone thinks they’re so sneaky.

But there are people like this TikToker named Amanda who are thankfully there to warn us all.

Because it’s the next buyer who also really gets short-changed, not just the company.

She starts off straight away with her warning,

“Listen friends, be so so so careful when you go to the ‘bougie’ TJ Maxx’s…”

And really the target here are the Valentino’s, Versace and YSL’s.

She goes on to explain just why.

And here’s the crux of it,

“Unfortunately when somebody buys a luxury item from Marshall’s or TJ Maxx and returns it, there is nobody there to verify its authenticity.”

I’m sorry…what?

Doesn’t this kind of seem like…a major part of any business, to keep this from happening?
