The most adversarial legal advice to ever hit retail LP on the net at Lawyers.com
If your employer’s loss prevention department or rep comes knocking, there are some time-tested ways for employees to respond. “They are not your friend.” Never, ever admit to a crime, even a petty one,” she advises. “If they ask you to write down that you stole a straw and won’t do it again, tell them no." You can refuse to talk to the loss prevention rep, but they can fire you just for that. What You Should Say. Ask for Help. This is a must read by every serious loss prevention executive because this is what they can find on the net. (Source lawyers.com)

"Organized criminals love finance, retail and they love restaurants," said Paul Black, Asia Pacific Regional managing Principal Investigative Response.

They are physically and virtually accessible to install malware for capturing credit card information. (Source csoonline.com)

The case underscored that retail video can be critical for investigators, prosecutors and juries. (Source app.com)

eBay Investigators assist U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations to shut down counterfeiters

Houston HSI seizes 10 domain names selling counterfeit cycling products
More than $90,000 also seized from PayPal accounts associated with the seized websites


HOUSTON – Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) on Friday seized 10 Internet domain names that were illegally selling counterfeit cycling equipment and apparel globally.

The 10 seized domain names are a continuation of "Operation In Our Sites" (IOS), an HSI sustained law enforcement initiative that began in 2010. These seized domain names are now in the custody of the U.S. government. Visitors typing those domain names into their web browsers will now find a banner that notifies them of the seizure and educates them about the federal crime of trafficking in counterfeit goods.

Houston HSI special agents worked closely with companies that manufacture cycling products to include Specialized, INVISTA (owners of the COOLMAX® and LYCRA® brands), along with PayPal and the U.S. Attorney's Office. This enforcement action was planned against a number of websites that were selling counterfeit high-end carbon bike frames, apparel and cycling shoes. These counterfeit items were targeted towards cyclists of all levels who shop online. During the latter part of the investigation, other cycling manufacturers including SRAM, Cervelo and Pinarello, also provided assistance in identifying counterfeit vendors targeting their brands.

South Carolina retailers pushing for tougher ORC penalties 
A South Carolina retailers group says the Palmetto State is a haven for professional shoplifters because it has the weakest laws for retail theft in the Southeast. That is why the S.C. Retail Association advocates two bills [H. 3602] [S. 0471] that would increase penalties for shoplifters and also make it a crime to switch price tags and fraudulently obtain refunds. The main goal is to stop those who shoplift for a living, sometimes working in organized teams. (Source islandpacket.com)

Thought Challenge
 

If you aren’t getting a ‘seat at the table’ perhaps it’s time to ‘move the table’!

By Francis Clark
VP Business Development
Profitect

A friend of mine, long time in executive management in retail established a ‘command and control center’ which took a pretty big budget to establish and a continuing expense to operate. To fund this program he ‘moved the table’ and by that I mean he made the CCC ‘the table’ which he used to show other departments in the organization how they could use this investment to improve their company contribution.

Asset Protection is just a ‘name change’ from Loss Prevention unless you do something to ‘move the table’ in your company. IF you have a way to access data that will provide others in your company with insights into their part of the business that they don’t have today...what are you doing about it? IF you don’t have a way to access that data...what are YOU doing about it??

You can’t grow personally OR your department by staying the same. You need to expand your value to the company and your contribution. It has to be shared with others. By ‘moving the table’ rather than just looking to have a ‘seat at the table’ you are bringing other departments in the company to ‘your table’ which increases your value to them and the company.

Don’t let Asset Protection be just a ‘name change’ in your company.

How Far is Too Far?

How far is too far? This is one of those questions where everyone seems to have an answer, but that answer is always changing. So is there really an answer, it’s hard to tell. I ask this question because of the recent backlash (for lack of a better word) regarding new mannequins that have cameras embedded in one eye. I read an article about these new mannequins a few days before Thanksgiving, and when I woke up Black Friday morning every newscast seemed to be talking about them. Most of the reports were covering the mannequins in a negative light, and a few even said they were a violation of our rights. So, how far is too far? Let’s find out.

Humans, being both cautious and curious creatures, tend to have mixed reactions when new technology like this comes out. Nine times out of ten our first reaction is to stay away from new things, especially ones that track or watch us. But then a funny thing happens, after the “cautious” state we immediately become curious. How does it work? How does it affect me? Do I have a choice? That last one is the kicker, do I have a choice? When we have the choice to opt-in or out of something that watches us, we suddenly become okay with it and most of the time will say yes to being watched.

A great example of this is when it was discovered the Apple and Google tracked us via their mobile operating systems. Many people were outraged, they felt violated; how dare these massive companies keep track of us and what we do. What was the solution to all of this? Apple and Google didn’t stop tracking us, they simply gave us a choice. Now when an application has a tracking feature a pop-up appears that asks if it can track our location, and wouldn’t you know it that most of us click “Allow.” It’s a funny thing being given a choice, but does that still make it okay?

Let’s take some time to go over what exactly these mannequins do. In simple terms, they help retailers better understand their demographics. They do this by analyzing the faces of those who pass by. Based on bone structure, skin tone, etc., they can determine a customer’s age, sex, and ethnicity among others. Contrary to popular belief, however, these mannequins don’t record video. The software only collects the demographic data and discards the images. The manufacturer of these mannequins is talking about adding the ability for them to record audio, but it will not be tied to any specific person.

So what makes us okay with being recorded by security cameras, but not okay with a mannequin just collecting data? Well, we are used to the security cameras, and we are given a choice. Stores with a surveillance system have signs that state there are cameras recording video, giving us the choice to shop there or not. Would shoppers be okay with the mannequins if they were given a choice? Only time will tell, but some of the American retailers that already employ them are giving customers a choice by posting signs stating the mannequins are in the store.

How far is too far? We may never know. The line people are willing to cross, and the level of privacy people want is ever changing. Do these mannequins go too far? Maybe they do, maybe they don’t but one thing is clear – if you use them you need to make your customers aware that you are, you need to give them a choice.

It seems like we're always saying "get back to the basics" and "keep it simple" almost on a daily basis. We say it so much, most of us don't even hear it and certainly don't appreciate its absolute truth that it speaks to. In our self-motivating attempts to be great at what we do, oftentimes we run faster and try to do more and lose sight of one basic rule. Success begins with the basics. And it's only when we feel like we've evolved beyond them that we find we've only outsmarted ourselves and at that point we've all got to start over and just get back to the basics.

Just a thought,
