    People have been known to return things to other stores with different UPCs pasted over their existing ones to get more store credit. I highly bet this is the case, especially since there's just one.

    Walmart's customer service doesn't check the toys that get returned, thus leading to tons of scummy things like that.

    But if it’s not a wal-mart item it shouldn’t be in their computers. There’d be no receipt and they should t even be able to scan the item.

    As Beastbox X said, some people will tape/glue the UPC of a different toy over the one on the box, returning it as something else. I'd be curious to see the barcode on that Cheetor.

    please refer to these posts for future references. They could've also done without a receipt and went full-karen if it didn't scan and got a giftcard. They always give in to customers if a Karen is involved.

    It's not just Walmart. There's someone in my area who routinely buys up toys and returns them with other stuff crammed in the packaging. Or with the BAF parts removed.

    Right. It's not exclusive to Walmart's return staff. It's returns in general. You're only as good as the people who handle it. I've returned TFs in the past (found cheaper, changed my mind, etc) and the local one I typically use is pretty adamant about checking the package. Or at least, glancing at it to confirm it looks like what's in there.
