Woolworths shoppers buy bonus products to get more & # 39; Ooshies & # 39; employee, only to return their purchases later, an employee has revealed.
One of the supermarket staff said customers are buying products that are marked with a paw print to increase the number of promotional items from The Lion King.
But then they would take their unwanted messages to a service desk to get a refund – a move that has drawn the anger of others participating in the collectable craze.

Those who try to complete their collections hit the & # 39; disgusting & # 39; attempt to cheat the system after a message was shared with the Woolworths Lion King & Coles Mini Shop 2 Australia – Swap, sell and buy Facebook group.
& # 39; That's terrible. Everything I bought I used & # 39 ;, wrote a social media user.
& # 39; I don't get any more people. We can't even collect stuff without being dodgy and unfair, & somebody else added.
Others admitted that they also bought products they didn't need, but instead of returning, they would shop for a worthy purpose.
& # 39; Ooshie & # 39; fans in the same Facebook group have publicly shared how they purchase the bonus products in bulk to maximize how many of the collectables they receive.
& # 39; 25 bonus Ooshies would have cost at least $ 750 to shop normally! & # 39 ;, wrote a customer because they revealed that they only spent $ 60 to get the same amount.

Last week it turned out that some sellers were trying to cheat buyers and cash in on the fun.
& # 39; Rare & # 39; items from Woolworths 2019 Lion King ooshies promotion appear on eBay for exorbitant prices.
A buyer from Perth went to social media to shame a seller in his area on Facebook Marketplace for an attempt to mislead potential customers.
It comes after a salesperson – a man named Chris – originally advertised a Woolworths Simba Ooshie for $ 15, but the price rose to $ 500 when contacted to arrange a pick-up time (text exchange shown)
The seller, a man named Chris, originally advertised a Woolworths Simba Ooshie for $ 15, but won the prize up to $ 500 when contacted to arrange a pick-up time.
When the buyer did not refuse the request so politely, Chris seemed to think that his price increase was completely acceptable.
& # 39; Did you think you had won the jackpot? & # 39 ;, he asked.
While the $ 500 price tag may seem steep to some, other shoppers who encountered rare ooshies in stores believe they are on a small fortune.
