Bought something from Nat Geo at Vivo and they forgot to remove the security tag. Argh! Anyone has any idea how can I get it removed instead of having to drive from AMK to Vivo again? I do have my receipt with me but the long drive sucks. :(

The tag seems to be this one

It's a magnetic system, but if you don't do it right, there's a permanent dye tag in there... looks like you gotta head back down. Take the 855 bus instead, snap along the way. ;)

You have to go back unfortunately. Or find another shop that will do it for you. :(

Case closed :D

I got pissed and hammered the tag into half thru a lil opening on one of the end. It opened up ... then I broke the pin and all is well now. Lesson #902193821903821 : Remember to check for security tags when out shopping. :D

The Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) detectors positioned at the entrance and exit of most shops works primarily through magnetic or Radio Frequency (RF) technology, concealing an item within a "Faraday cage" of aluminium foil in a bag is enough to prevent detection of the security tag in older generations of EAS though newer ones are designed to also sound the alarm if there is a disturbance of the magnetic or RF field associated with the use of such "Faraday cage".
