NOTICE: you reset the barcode scanner and nothing more that this will happend. The list of articles and it's prices, for instance, is not IN the barcode itself but trasmitted via wireless to a central server. Once at the cash, those values are retrieved and counted.

best hack would be were u had one programmed to a certain store for ex: Walmart, go to Walmart and scan an items barcode and it'll come back as purchased so u could walk right out with it without having to worry about it setting off the alarms lol
