Getting Even with a Shoplifter-Legally

I got a call from the women’s department because there was a lady who wanted to return an expensive dress without a receipt.

Thanks so much for your info. I have been to Las Vegas once and I remember the Monte Carlo - I thought it was gorgeous. I was just curious about it.
