The other night we dropped by a Redbox like we have many times before to pick up a couple of movies. This time one of the original movies had been stolen and out came a junk disc. So I call Redbox and report the disc and get a couple free movie rental codes. When asked the guy said it is “happens all the time” that people commit this fraud. Who steals something worth ~$15 new? Plus the Redbox DVDs occasionally have less content so you get something less than the store version, is used, and has no case. On top of that you stole from a company that has you credit card information and keeps track of who checked out the individual discs. I would expect them to charge their normal DVD did not return disc fee of $24 plus tax. In the end you came out worse. So much for sticking it to the man.
