      The usual scam is to scan for cheap donuts, claiming you didn't realise because you hadn't had to buy Kripsy Kremes before.

      It's almost like ordering a pizza and a teenage girl turns up....

        Fillet potatoes and sirloin carrots. Delish.

          It does seem like a decent AI video analysis might fix this.

          You scan a carrot and then put a box of doughnuts on the tray it should prompt for a person to manually check (could be done remotely).

          I don't know why they insist on the member of staff having to come to you to approve stuff most of this could be done by someone doing it remotely.

            That would involve spending money.

            They just stick security tags on wine, steak and razors.

              Be true but its a pretty obvious scam and it seems everyone is at it that must be costing a few quid.

                  It could also be done by a member of staff on a till.
