That is a big problem and I'm sure a lot of stores are worried about it. Not only do they lose the sales on the merchandise that was discarded but they end up either giving out money or other merchandise in exchange for things that were fraudulently returned. There are also vendors who require that any unsellable merchandise be destroyed and disposed of in order to give credit, stores have no choice but to honor the wishes of the vendors or they're out even more money.
