'Looking Back, Looking Forward' - Paul Jones, Senior Director of Global Asset Protection for eBay Speaks with Stores magazine about LP issues for 2015  Our nation's retailers are still having a difficult time combating organized retail crime. While we've made progress and improvements, we've seen the organized criminals move ... from taking physical goods and stealing them to now taking goods and returning them. As we get into a more digital world, we're seeing "triangle fraud," where someone gets a stolen credit card's credentials, takes it online and buys the product from one company, [then] ships it to a person who is either part of the scheme or unwitting. Great loss prevention teams are analyzing [and] drilling down into the data, getting a baseline on what it should look like and when transactions come in out of the norm, do an early intervention. Editor's Note: The article is an absolute must read and deals with a host of issues. From chip-and-pin, data breaches, how eBay is working with the retailers, refund fraud, and emerging threats. Both Stores magazine and Paul Jones did a great job of sharing information and educating the reader. Be sure you take the time to read it at nrf.com

Business Insider Writer Claims Target's 'Walk of Shame" is 'widespread practice' - Target's Response, "There is No Such Policy"  Target employees contacted by the writer claim the retailer has a practice of parading workers through stores in handcuffs to discourage theft and other infractions. The practice is informally referred to as the "walk of shame" among employees and managers, according to more than a half-dozen workers contacted by Business Insider. The company is being sued by a California woman whose son, 22-year-old Graham Gentles, committed suicide after allegedly being subjected to the "walk of shame." With four other similar incidents listed in the article the writer tries to assert that "It's an unwritten policy and the practice is well known."

Several other employees contacted Business Insider with similar stories and Patrick McNicholas, the lawyer representing Gentles' mother, claims he has more than 40 contacts who have either witnessed or been subjected to a walk of shame.  Those contacts include former and current employees and former and current managers, as well as risk management people from Target," McNicholas told Business Insider.

"The allegations in the lawsuit of a Target policy or practice are simply not true," a spokesman said when asked about the lawsuit involving former worker Graham Gentles. "There is no such policy."

The company did not elaborate on the guidance it gives managers in situations where employees are suspected of theft or other infractions that could involve law enforcement.

But we spoke to a former Target manager who offered more details on what happens when an employee is suspected of wrongdoing.

Joseph Sivick worked at Target as an executive team leader from 2002 to 2014. Here's what he told us:

If a team member is being accused of stealing or a crime they are usually called in to the Human Resources or Assets Protection office where they are interviewed by a member of the store leadership team along with the Asset Protection leader.

If in the opinion of the store team based on the interview in conjunction with the evidence complied throughout the investigation the team member is thought to have committed the crime (such as theft) that they are being accused of, the local law enforcement are notified.

Law enforcement then takes over at that point and they make the decision whether the team member is arrested, handcuffed, and removed from the building based upon the crime.

The team member is typically removed through an entrance off of the office areas, to minimize exposure of the incident and maintain confidentiality. However if no entrance is available then the team member is escorted through the front of the store and removed from Target property. This is typically the procedure but it may not have been what happened in this instance.

A current manager also told Business Insider that Target does not encourage managers to walk employees through stores in handcuffs.

When there is proof, and only [if there is] proof, of a team member stealing ... we have local police arrest a team member in a discreet location away from guests and co workers," he said. "If what happened [to Graham Gentles] is true then it sounds to me like the store didn't follow protocol."

Nashville defense attorney David Raybin said it's not unheard of for retailers to use public shaming to deter employee infractions.

There is a philosophy among some retail establishments that if they shame people or threaten to shame people that will act as a deterrent to employee theft," he said. "It's simply a dreadful policy and there are innumerable reasons why."

By shaming employees, companies "open themselves up to enormous liability," he said. "Employers would be well served to have a policy in place specifically prohibiting this." businessinsider.com

Austin, TX., Dumpster Diver Hobby Makes Yahoo Top News Sunday - as reported in the Daily ... Watch Out This May Go Viral - What's in Your Garbage?  Malone has taken the familiar saying to new heights by earning thousands of dollars sifting through dumpsters near major retail giants like Walmart.  In an extensive profile piece in Wired, Malone reveals how he spends much of his free time rummaging through retailer dumpsters around Austin, Texas, and regularly coming up with pristine products he then resells for a hefty profit. And it's all entirely legal. At least if you follow the rules, which basically comes down to not dumpster diving in areas clearly marked as private property or otherwise restricted areas. Malone, 37, already has a full-time career and six-figure salary as an IT security specialist but estimates that if he pursued a full-time professional dumpster diving career he'd make $600,000 per year. Those numbers are based on an average profit of $2,500 from each of his nightly diving forays across Austin. His biggest finds tend to be electronics items that a customer opened, returned and the store then threw out. Malone started out building custom-made electronics out of parts he found behind stores like Office Max, Best Buy and Home Depot, but when he held a yard sale to clear out his rapidly expanding collection, people flocked to smaller items like printer cartridges. At the end of the day, he had pocketed more than $3,000, he told Wired. "And that was when I realized, ‘This has the potential to be something.'" Editor's Note: Does the coverage go viral and create more divers and what's the potential consequences? Drug store chains have been fined millions for throwing out patient info in the dumpsters and home improvement retailers fined for tossing hazardous waste. Sounds like the dumpsters need to be marked 'private property' and put in designated restricted areas. yahoo.com

Consumers Claim To Shop More Online, But Do They?
It might seem weird to think of the benefits of online shopping as more of a theory than a practice, especially when the advantages of having near-bottomless inventory and quick price comparisons are so clear, but according to new survey data from the IBM Institute for Business Value, published by eMarketer on Feb. 5, online shopping remains more loved as theory than as practice. According to the survey data, 50 percent of respondents do prefer shopping online, citing such advantages as the flexibility of online price comparisons, quick purchase delivery, and to adults under 40, the fastest growing demographic in e-commerce acceptance, "cost and convenience." However, only 29 percent said they made their last purchase online, a significant disparity in the numbers. Retail e-commerce sales have been growing over the last few years, from $264.3 billion in 2013 to $349.1 billion expected this year, a leap from 5.8 percent to 7.1 percent of all retail sales. By 2018, e-commerce will equal $493.9 billion in sales - roughly 8.9 percent of all retail sales. pymnts.com
