Convicted KPMG inside trader sentenced to prison - Captured taking bag of money in a parking lot  A former partner at the accounting firm KPMG has been sentenced to 14 months in federal prison for insider trading. Scott London, of Agoura Hills, was sentenced Thursday in Los Angeles. He'll also have to pay a $100,000 fine. London oversaw some 500 KPMG employees and handled audits for major clients such as Herbalife Ltd. until he was fired last year. He later pleaded guilty to insider trading. Prosecutors say that over several years, London provided confidential client information to a friend, Bryan Shaw, who used it to make securities trades that reaped more than $1 million. Shaw said he bribed London with some $70,000 in cash and goods including jewelry, concert tickets and a $12,000 Rolex watch. Shaw pleaded guilty to conspiracy last year. Editors note: The Daily reported the arrest last year in an article which showed Shaw handing London a brown paper bag full of money in a parking lot while the Feds where filming the pay off. And the article stated that he was managing a number of retailers accounts at the time. (Source associated press)

TV Reporter Exposes Shady iPhone Resellers- Getting the homeless to buy cellular contracts at Apple stores - Cops say it's civil matter - Reporter says Apple knows about the scheme and does nothing  A KUSA-TV report says the scheme was uncovered at the Cherry Creek (Denver) Apple store, and leaves the homeless and other down-and-outers holding monthly cellular contracts they can’t afford to pay. According to the report, the resellers drive the streets looking for people who might need quick cash, offer them a deal, and then drive them to an Apple store. Inside, the resellers provide cash for the recruits to purchase one or more iPhones tied to a cellular carrier. The recruits are told they can easily cancel the monthly cellular contracts, leaving them with no liability. In exchange for their help purchasing the iPhones, the recruits receive $100 or more. Only later do the recruits discover that they are on the hook for the monthly charges or contract cancellation charges. KUSA reporter Jeremy Jojola identified the resellers as two men from Beverly Hills (Calif.) operating a company that offers unlocked iPhones, and said they seemed to be working with one particular Cherry Creek store employee. However, Jojola didn’t speculate on whether that employee was part of the resellers’ scheme. Jojola did say the number of people he saw at the Cherry Creek store indicated to him that employees must have been aware of the resellers’ activities. Denver police have classified the situation as a civil matter and have declined to investigate the scheme Jojola uncovered. (Source ifoapplestore.com)

7-Elevens in Central Florida Post Anti-Skimming Stickers
Company aims to make customers aware of their efforts to protect consumer information. The anti-fraud stickers are red with black lettering and read: “Security seal. 7-11 Cares about your ID. Please Report Immediately if 'VOID OPEN' appears.” According to an article on ClickOrlando.com, 7-Eleven dispensers across Central Florida have been sealed with stickers covering the lock box that contains the pump’s card reader. If the tape is cut, torn, removed or tampered with in any way, it begins to change color and eventually reveals the words “VOID OPEN,” alerting customers to a possible security breach. A 7-Eleven spokesperson told Local 6 that every store is instructed to keep the stickers on hand and check the integrity of the stickers daily. “Store personnel need to break seals each time they have to change the customer-receipt tape and then replace with a new seal,” said Margaret Chabris, director of corporate communications at 7-Eleven.

State Appellate Ruling: Right to jury trial in shoplifting case in AZ
A state appellate court cited 17th century English court cases Thursday in a ruling that expands Arizonans' right to have a jury trial in misdemeanor cases by saying additional shoplifting defendants are entitled to be judged by their peers instead of a judge. We therefore conclude that the crime of shoplifting existed in the common law before statehood and defendants charged with that crime were entitled to have their guilty determined by jury," Judge Lawrence Winthrop wrote for a three-judge panel.

How cyber crime is threatening the global economy
Americans are increasingly falling victim to online crime according to a survey by the Pew Research Center, which asked more than 1,000 adults about their experiences on the Internet. It emerged that, while 18% of users said that sensitive data such as bank account and credit card information had been stolen, 21% had found ‘unwanted guests’ in their email and social network accounts. The survey highlighted a sharp increase in cases of account hacking. In 2013, just 11% of those interviewed reported anomalies, while a year later more than twice as many people had their profiles hacked. (Source west-info.eu)

10% of U.S. grocery sales could move online within a decade: BMC study
At least 10% of U.S. grocery sales could move online within 10 years, according to a study by Brick Meets Click (BMC), a retail technology consulting firm.The Investor’s Business Daily reports that market share captured by online sales might soar to nearly 17 per cent of total U.S. grocery spending in the coming decade. While few consumers today opt for online grocery delivery, the BMC study says that number is rising as part of a shift in shopper lifestyles, especially among affluent, time-starved grocery shoppers and tech-savvy millennials. Online grocery shopping will also get a boost from the rising use of mobile devices. According to BMC, traditional grocers were rattled last spring when Amazon expanded its AmazonFresh test delivery program from Seattle to parts of San Francisco and Los Angeles. But the report says supermarket chains were lulled into complacency when it was clear that Amazon wasn't targeting the mass market but instead focusing on upscale customers who frequented Costco and higher-end stores like Whole Foods. The BMC report says grocers must meet two critical conditions to succeed online: Fulfillment costs need to be slashed to no more than a 10 per cent premium over buying groceries at the supermarket, and real incentives need to be offered to speed customer adoption.

A 33-year-old Lethbridge man has been sent to prison for robbing a convenience store earlier this year.

Armed with a knife, Farrell entered Mac’s convenience store on Bluefox Boulevard North about 3:40 a.m. Feb. 13 and ordered the lone female employee to open the store’s vault. The employee told Farrell she didn’t have access to the vault but she opened the cash register and handed him $75. He demanded again that she open the fault, but when she said she couldn’t he ran from the store. (Source lethbridgeherald.com)

Ridiculously photogenic guy wanted for stealing stuff from Winners store in Toronto  Toronto Police want to find a man who walked into a Winners department store at Laird and Eglinton in Toronto on March 14 around 8 p.m. and stole a bunch of children’s clothes and large boxed items. What is unique about the security photographs released of the suspect is how cheerful he seems in the process of lifting the goods — even giving a peace sign salute on the way out the door at the store located in the extremely sedate neighborhood of Leaside, where in-store security might have been light on a Friday night. The expression on his face is reminiscent of the “Ridiculously Photogenic Guy” who became a meme two years ago after being snapped in action at the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, South Carolina.

Why So Many Retail Stores Get Hacked for Credit Card Data - PCI Standards Don't Guarantee Security  When a big retailer gets hacked, it’s often quick to note that it has complied with cybersecurity rules set by the credit card industry. MasterCard, Visa, and other card companies require retailers to pass an audit sanctioned by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council, an industry group. It turns out the accreditation by PCI doesn’t always offer much protection against fraud. Neiman Marcus noted it had met PCI standards when it said in January that customer cards may have been compromised from July to October. Target, which suffered a record-breaking hack in November, had been certified as compliant two months earlier. All of which raises the question: Is there something wrong with PCI’s standards? Almost half of all card fraud occurs in the U.S., though the country accounts for just a quarter of global card spending. That’s partly because of light enforcement of PCI rules and a lack of accountability for assessors, most of whom are drawn from a pool of hundreds of approved consulting firms, says one cybersecurity analyst.

How Big Data Helps Chains Choose Store Locations - An Unsung Key To Retail Success  Amid buzzwords that have hijacked discussions on the retail industry — “omnichannel,” “webrooming” — it’s easy to forget a stubborn truism of retail success: Location, location, location. Put aside, for now, predictions of how Amazon and e-commerce will engulf business at brick-and-mortar stores: The reality is that 94% of retail sales are still rung up in physical stores, and where merchants place those stores plays an outsized role in determining whether their chains fly or flop. Starbucks, for instance, takes a disciplined, data-driven approach to store openings, using software to analyze location-based data and demographics. (Source forbes.com)

Denver Fake credit card ring may be back in operation; group busted in 2007  Investigators from the Economic Crimes unit at the Denver District Attorney's office are investigating the theft of a $6,000 from eight branches of the Bank of the West. Court documents indicate that the theft may be linked to a fake credit card ring that has apparently resurfaced in Denver. Ring members were originally indicted in 2007 on charges of racketeering and theft. In the earlier crime spree, the Colorado ring leader, Tawana Smith, handed out the fake cards and directed her accomplices to purchase $60,000 in merchandise from high-end stores at Cherry Creek Shopping Center and the 16th Street Mall, according to court documents. Smith pleaded guilty to racketeering and was sentenced to eight years in prison. She was released early and is now on parole. Court documents say she is apparently being supervised in New York. Another member of that ring, Robin Robinson, pleaded guilty to theft and was sentenced to four years in prison. Last July, Robinson was stopped by police officers and TSA agents at Denver International Airport after they found more than 70 blank Bank of America credit cards in her luggage.  (Source thedenverchannel.com)
