    You have to remember: when they say "bad check," it doesn't necessarily mean the money isn't available in the account. It could also mean he posed as someone else to pass the check, he used someone else's checking account number and printed it onto checks form an online check ordering site, etc. There are many ways to "pass a bad check." You are not just helping Walmart track him down. You are helping the people victimized by this criminal behavior--you and me through increased prices due to theft, as well as the person whose account he may have used. Hopefully, they already have him.

    Still surprise he was able to do that, also say, I'm betting his picture and name is already on file

    I have no idea how he could write a bad check at Walmart-they run your check instantly through the machine to collect their money and hand it back to you already debited.

    Amazing that some justify stealing in certain instances and from certain places. Thieves cost ALL OF US money no matter how much someone thinks the retailer "can afford it."

    Walmart treats the employees that are worth something just fine. Most of the ones who complain are the ones that are treated bad so that they will quit.

    I love people who wear sunglasses inside... It just makes so much sense... those walmart lights and their white floors are just too bright to handle

    Wal-Mart cut out waxing and buffing the floors. They are just a flat grey color now. A huge cost savings for them.

    Me thinks Walmart should invest in better cameras.

    I'm all in for banning sunglasses inside :) and if you got your eyes dilated, you should be at home anyways

    Tell Wal-Mart to treat their employees better and I'll let them know.
