The Not So 'High Life'
- Ex-MillerCoors VP Admits $8M Fraud Scheme Against Beer Co.
A former executive with MillerCoors LLC pled guilty in Illinois federal court Wednesday to bilking his employer out of more than $8 million in costs for marketing events that were either inflated or never happened at all. David Colletti, 57, who was MillerCoors' vice president of on-premise national accounts, overseeing the marketing and sale of beer to restaurants and bars, admitted he recruited people to act as vendors on hundreds of false invoices he signed off on and submitted to the beer company. Once MillerCoors paid the bills, Colletti would split the payout with the purported vendors, using it to pay for investments, debts and luxury goods.

Colletti's single charge of wire fraud comes with a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica Romero said. In exchange for his cooperation and testimony against his seven co-defendants, who allegedly served as the purported vendors in the scheme, the government agreed to ask for a little more than five years in prison, according to the plea agreement. law360.com chicagotribune.com

What 'suitable seating' means for retailers in California and beyond
Retailers have long preferred store employees to stand, believing it makes them more efficient and approachable. A new Supreme Court of California ruling means the tradition could be on its last legs.

It's hard to picture a retail employee sitting down. From the old-fashioned general store counters of the Wild West era to the Wal-Mart cash registers of the 21st century, standing up is a retail tradition that's stood the test of time. But that is almost guaranteed to change in California, where the state Supreme Court recently ruled that employers can no longer deny any worker a place to sit.

"There is no principled reason for denying an employee a seat when he spends a substantial part of his workday at a single location performing tasks that could reasonably be done while seated, merely because his job duties include other tasks that must be done standing," wrote Justice Carol A. Corrigan in the court's opinion, which addressed lawsuits brought by CVS Health clerks and Chase Bank tellers who said they were denied the opportunity to sit while on the job, even when it affected their health. retaildive.com

Analyst Says Sears Likely to Close More Stores
The optimization of Sears Holdings Corp.'s asset base likely means more store closures ahead. That's the conclusion of Cowen analyst John Kernan, who wrote a research note Tuesday. He also concluded that Burlington Stores Inc. and Dick's Sporting Goods could be the beneficiaries of store sites that might become available down the road.

According to Kernan, Sears owns 302 U.S. Sears stores and leases 403. In contrast, only 97 Kmart stores are owned, while 844 are leased. The analyst noted that an analysis of Sears' operating lease payments suggested that a large portion of the leases could be up within the next five years. He said the regional distribution of the Sears full-line and Kmart stores "skews to the Midwest, South and Northeastern regions of the U.S." In addition, there are 651 Sears Auto Centers, of which 620 are associated with a Sears full-line store. wwd.com

South Jersey: Police step up mall patrols with full-time retail theft detail
- Two ORC Crews Busted
South Jersey's Gloucester Premium Outlets and other nearby retail centers are attracting shoppers - and crooks. So much so that police now have a retail theft detail assigned there full time. The new position seems to have had an impact: Gloucester Township Police recently made arrests in three separate theft and credit card operations. Overall, eight people were arrested and thousands of dollars of boosted merchandise has been recovered. A stolen weapon loaded with illegal hollow-point bullets also was confiscated in one instance, police said. phillyvoice.com

Hackers Target Merging Companies to Multiply Attacks
Companies frequently involved in mergers and acquisitions are being targeted by hackers who use them as threat multipliers for their attacks to gain access to other companies' networks.

The urgency involved in M&A deals, the complexity of absorbing another firm's networks and the length of time it can take to find a hack can make for a cybersecurity disaster, said Itzik Menashe, global IT director of mobile connectivity firm Telit. "When you acquire a new company, you acquire its security posture as well. If the acquired company has been lax about their security and you integrate them with your network, whatever threats they've allowed in are now your problem," he said. "Adversaries target companies that do acquisitions, as it gives them an attack multiple." wsj.com

Enterprises Lack Top-Down Management Of Third-Party Risk
New report finds there's not enough leadership in managing risks from business partners and vendors. Large-scale breaches that originate due to attackers targeting third-party weaknesses will continue to escalate until senior leadership and the C-suite starts taking third-party risk more seriously. A new survey out by the Ponemon Institute found that the C-level executives are not engaged in their organizations' third-party risk management processes and that a lack of formal programs in managing that risk is endangering the security and compliance of enterprises today. darkreading.com

Mastercard Doesn't Owe Food Co. For Data Breach Fallout
A New York state judge ruled Tuesday that restaurant and grocery supplier Jetro Holdings LLC can't collect from MasterCard roughly $7 million the wholesaler reimbursed its "middleman" credit card processor for costs stemming from two data breaches, because Jetro was not a party to those entities' separate contract.

After the wholesale grocer was hacked in 2011 and 2012, Jetro's transaction processor, PNC Bank NA, was hit with nearly $7 million in fees and penalties by MasterCard International Inc., which PNC then passed onto Jetro. The wholesaler then sued MasterCard, contending that the card company was wrong to collect those fees from PNC in the first place and that, because it reimbursed PNC, Jetro now had an equitable right to go after MasterCard for repayment. law360.com

Member Of $5M ATM-Skimming Scheme Gets 7-Plus Years
A high-level member of an extensive ATM-skimming scheme that stole more than $5 million from ATM users was sentenced to more than seven years in prison on Tuesday, about two months after a New Jersey jury found him guilty. The scheme defrauded Citigroup Inc., TD Bank NA, Wells Fargo & Co. and many other financial institutions out of at least $5 million and affected thousands of bank customers, the DOJ said. law360.com

Hundreds of Millions of Email Accounts Hacked and Traded Online, Says Expert
Hundreds of millions of hacked user names and passwords for email accounts and other websites are being traded in Russia's criminal underworld, a security expert told Reuters. The discovery of 272.3 million stolen accounts included a majority of users of Mail.ru, Russia's most popular email service, and smaller fractions of Google, Yahoo and Microsoft email users, said Alex Holden, founder and chief information security officer of Hold Security.

It is one of the biggest stashes of stolen credentials to be uncovered since cyber attacks hit major U.S. banks and retailers two years ago. Yahoo Mail credentials totaled 40 million, or 15 per cent of the haul, Hotmail accounted for 33 million, or 12 per cent, while 24 million, or nine per cent, belonged to Gmail account holder. Google and Yahoo have said they are 'investigating' the breach that hit their respective Gmail and Yahoo Mail services, along with Microsoft's Hotmail. nbcnews.com theinquirer.net

Alaska Legislator moves forward with Felony Threshold to $1,000;
new focus on thefts over $10,000

One of the amendments approved Tuesday night links the felony theft threshold, which the bill proposes to raise to $1,000, to inflation. The felony theft threshold has been a long-running issue in the Legislature because it hadn't been updated in decades, causing more and more things to fall under a more serious penalty. Legislators like Coghill have sought to update the threshold so it's more in-line with inflation, but have been opposed by big-box retailers. Coghill successfully shepherded an increase to the limit in 2014 to $750. That year the House, under pressure from retailers, nixed the inflation proofing.It was still a contentious issue on the floor Tuesday. Rep. Les Gara, D-Anchorage, supported adding inflation proofing.

"I think we all agree that a crime should be prosecuted based on what happened. ... You should never punish someone for inflation," he said, offering an example of someone stealing a grill being a misdemeanor one year but a felony the next. "Over time it becomes a felony just because of inflation. That's not how you treat people and that's not you treat the same crime."

Opponents of the change said the Legislature should reserve the right to adjust it as they see fit and others argued that adding inflation proofing in the budget could be a slippery slope. The amendment initially failed but passed under reconsideration 20-17. Another amendment also increased the financial penalty for serious thefts from $10,000 to $25,000. The House still had a handful of amendments to work through as of press time Tuesday night. They are likely to finish final debate and take up a vote on the bill today. newsminer.com

The New Digital Security Strategy Needs Many Layers
Multilayered authentication is critical for preventing card-not-present (CNP) fraud. A layered approach enables merchants to safeguard payments at all levels. Combined with the industry best practices outlined below, merchants can offset the detrimental impacts of EMV on CNP payments and fraud. There are a variety of ways to authenticate CNP payments:

Device authentication. This confirms a certain device has been used for the transaction. A one-time password (OTP) - a password that can only be used once and is often time-sensitive. Some option include randomized PIN pad or biometric factors

There are several other elements to CNP security.

AVS. Credit card companies and issuing banks provide Address Verification Services (AVS) to merchants in order to check submitted billing addresses. Information provided through AVS can indicate whether a transaction is authentic or fraudulent.

3DSecure. Currently, this tool is a secure communication protocol that offers real-time cardholder authentication straight from the issuer during an online transaction.

Tokenization. This method is designed to replace card values with different values called tokens. They are unusable by any outsiders.

New Visa/MasterCard Technology. In the future, MasterCard's Chip Authentication Program (CAP) and Visa's Dynamic Passcode Authentication (DPA) are hoped to be considered EMV for CNP transactions.

Wearable biometrics. Personal devices continue to grow in popularity and aren't just limited to smartphones anymore. The upside is that most of these devices are fitted with the ability to authenticate their owner via biometrics. paymentssource.com

Amazon Needn't Police Infringement, EBay Tells Fed. Circ.
EBay has backed up its fellow online retailer Amazon in a case in which the web giant faces claims that it should be held liable for patent infringement after "offering to sell" allegedly offending products, telling the Federal Circuit that a lower court correctly held that it should not.

Online retailers such as Amazon Inc. should not be found liable for direct patent infringement because of products sold on its website by third party users, as the companies' role largely is to provide a largely automated service to the public, according to eBay Inc.'s amicus brief. Legal precedent holds that it would be impractical for such entities to monitor for infringement the millions of transactions that occur on their websites. law360.com

King County, WA: Bail set at $1.5 million for 'The Profile Lady'; Seattle Police seek name of suspect in ID theft ring case "
Crooks call her 'The Profile Lady' and tonight Anh Nguyen is being held on $1.5 million dollars bail. King County prosecutors say Nguyen got the nickname for providing victim's personal information or profiles to a ring of thieves who then opened credit card accounts. "Most of the cases that we come across is because of mail theft, residential burglaries and car prowling so I always tell people don't leave anything in your car," said King County Senior Deputy Prosecutor Mafe Rajul. Nguyen and her mom, Kim Le, are accused of running a massive ID theft ring that stole $395,000 from victims. Nguyen was out on bail when detectives say she was spotted at Sam's Club in Renton last week with a co-defendant opening an account on a victim's name and charging $4,000 worth of jewelry. "ID theft is a serious problem and you cannot continue to victimize people and that's why I asked for a bail increase because Ms. Nguyen had been out on $500,000 bail and that did not stop her from continuing to commit more crimes," said Rajul. q13fox.com

Shootings and Deaths

Tamarac, FL: Boston Market shooting victim: Restaurant should've protected me
Jason Claire doesn't remember the day he was shot in the head, but he's thankful to be alive. The 33-year-old father was covering for a manager at a Boston Market in Tamarac on Jan. 1 when a gunman shot him several times in the back of the head and neck before taking his own life. The shooter was Clive Muir, 56, a disgruntled former Boston Market employee. Muir had shot his love interest, Ann Nau, 21, inside her apartment then went to the Boston Market where she worked as an assistant manager, walked into an office and shot Claire several times. One of the bullets went through Claire's eye and one remains lodged in his jaw, which impacts his ability to hear. Jason Claire's attorney, Todd Falzone, claims Boston Market knew Muir was a danger and didn't do enough to protect his client, who didn't normally work at the store where the incident occurred. "This fellow clearly made threats," Falzone said, adding that those threats involved weapons. Falzone said upper management knew of those threats and didn't act properly to protect his employees. local10.com

Albuquerque, NM: Death after restraint at Kmart investigated as homicide
The man who died Tuesday at a local department store may have suffered a medical episode during an altercation with loss prevention workers, but his death is being investigated as a homicide for now, APD spokesman Tanner Tixier said.

As they waited for police to arrive, the man attempted to flee, and was restrained by two to three employees, Tixier said. "As a result of the struggle and the restraint, that individual passed away on scene from some type of medical episode or medical distress," Tixier said in a Wednesday afternoon news conference. The cause of his death has not been determined by the Office of the Medical Investigator. abqjournal.com
