Au Bon Pain Deploys Agilence's 20/20 F&B Data Analytics and Reporting Solution
Agilence, Inc., the leading provider of SaaS-based data analytics solutions for restaurant operators, today announced that Au Bon Pain, the bakery café chain, has selected 20/20 F&B to replace their legacy reporting solution.

The 20/20 F&B reporting solution from Agilence will provide Au Bon Pain with a platform for integrating and gleaning insights from point-of-sale data, food cost variance data, and inventory adjustment data, allowing them to improve operational efficiencies, reduce losses, and ensure policy compliance. Based in Boston, MA, Au Bon Pain is the internationally recognized leader in the fast-casual restaurant category with over 300 locations worldwide.

Joe Sherman, Director of Loss Prevention, Au Bon Pain, chose Agilence because he wanted an easy to use solution that integrates data from multiple sources enabling process improvements and fraud reduction across all of Au Bon Pain.  "We were spending a lot of time trying to extract and analyze data from unconnected sources and we realized we needed a better solution. 20/20 F&B allows for easy integration with multiple data sources including our existing camera system, which has allowed us to easily spot anomalies and trends that happen beyond the point of sale," said Sherman. prnewswire.com

Tyco Says $60M Drug Heist Trial Win Should Stand
Insurance Co. & Eli Lilly Had Asked for New Trial

AA Florida jury's finding that security company Tyco wasn't liable to Eli Lilly's insurer for the theft of $60 million in Prozac and Zyprexa from the pharmaceutical giant's Connecticut warehouse was overwhelmingly supported by the evidence and shouldn't be overturned, Tyco told a Florida judge Thursday.

Tyco Integrated Security LLC, which was ADT Security Services at the time of the 2010 heist, says National Union Fire Insurance Co.'s entire case theory - that Tyco ignored glaring deficiencies in its system or that an insider at the company potentially aided the burglars - rested on the opinions and testimony of experts who turned out not to be credible, and in fact offered opinions that supported Tyco's argument instead.

What's more, Tyco presented a wide array of evidence and testimony, including testimony from the burglar himself, that no insider information was used and that National Union's case theories were "illogical," the security company argued, urging the Florida federal judge to deny the insurer's request for altered judgment following the jury's April 4 decision that Tyco wasn't liable.

After the 10-member jury found that Tyco wasn't liable on April 4, National Union and Eli Lilly asked the court for an amended verdict or a new trial earlier this month. law360.com

1,400 Japanese 7-Eleven ATM's get hit for $13M in two hour skimming operation
Cash worth 1.4bn yen ($13m; 8.8m pounds) has been taken from cash machines in Japan using credit cards created with data stolen from a South African bank.

The money was withdrawn in less than three hours from 1,400 convenience store cash machines across Japan, the Kyodo news agency reports. South Africa's Standard Bank estimated its total losses at $19.25m. Police suspect more than 100 people were involved across Japan, Kyodo said, putting the date of the incident as 15 May.

The maximum amount of 100,000 yen ($913; 629 pounds) was withdrawn in each of 14,000 transactions, said the agency, citing "investigative sources". The withdrawals targeted 7-Eleven cash machines, which unlike most in Japan accept foreign cards. According to ATM data, around 1600 cards were used which spanned 16 prefectures. bbc.com infosecuritymagazine.com

U.S. Retailers Dominate Cross-Border Expansion Globally
NYC's Retail Reaches Tipping Point - May Cause Growth
The Canadian Push Continuing - 4.5% Growth Expected in '16

Retailers from the Americas continued to dominate as the most globalized brands with 87 percent present in all three global regions: the Americas, EMEA and APAC. Some U.S. retailers may be using international expansion to offset sluggish sales at home. "Broadly speaking, there are only certain levers that retailers can use to grow their brands," Buono said. "One way is expanding in the current country they're in, but in the U.S. there's more optimization. They can expand the brand in other channels."

Hong Kong was the hottest market in 2015 with 73 new brands opening there. Singapore came in second place with 63 new brands, followed by Tokyo (57), Taipei (47), Moscow (40), London (39), Dubai (38), Beijing (37), Bucharest (35) and Daha (29).

The appeal of Canada's cosmopolitan cities and diverse population has attracted Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue to the north. Retail sales in Toronto grew 3.2 percent in 2015 and are expected to grow another 4.5 percent in 2016. "Despite sluggish economic growth, interest and spending on luxury retail is increasing among Canadian consumers to the benefit of high-end retailers," the report said.

With retail in NYC reaching a tipping point and large national brands leaving NYC, rents are lowering and store vacancies are increasing. "It's clear that opportunities to enter the NYC market are broadening daily," "There are going to be opportunities to sublease and we'll see those growing."  wwd.com

Wal-Mart Trespass Claim Against Union Survives Fla. Appeal
Wal-Mart won the latest battle in its ongoing fight with the OUR Walmart union when on Friday a Florida appeals court found that the National Labor Relations Act doesn't preempt the retail giant's trespassing action in state court.

The retailer seeking injunctions against future trespasses and nuisances by the UFCW. An appellate court in Washington state ruled that Wal-Mart's claims are preempted. Other cases are pending in Arkansas, California, Maryland and Texas.  law360.com

PacSun Workers Say Ch. 11 Overlooks $90M In Unpaid Wages
Employees claiming PacSun owes them $90 million in unpaid wages told a Delaware bankruptcy court on Thursday the retailer had glossed over their claims, and argued the nascent Chapter 11 plan is invalid as it would erase claims from outside the bankruptcy.

Charles Pfeiffer and Tamaree Beeney, who represent employees in one proposed and one certified class action in California state court, took issue with PacSun's proposed disclosure statement. The document should outline the company's liabilities to inform creditors ahead of a vote on the restructuring plan, but the pair of wage-and-hour plaintiffs say it leaves out underpaid employees - the largest chunk of unsecured creditors the retailer has.

Beeney and Pfeiffer said on Thursday that the contested wages earned in the 180 days before PacSun filed its Chapter 11 petition in April - and which are therefore priority claims under the bankruptcy code - are expected to top $15 million. law360.com

On-the-job injuries will be posted online in safety push
"No employer wants to be seen publicly as operating a dangerous workplace"

Incidents of on-the-job injuries at specific employers are about to become public for the first time in a searchable online database, part of a federal push to shed light on and improve worker conditions.

A rule finalized earlier this month by the U.S. Department of Labor applies to large and small employers in a range of businesses considered high-risk, including grocery stores, home furnishing retailers, hospitals, nursing homes, manufacturers, trucking companies and urban transit systems. Already required to maintain internal logs of injuries and illnesses, those employers soon will be ordered to share those reports electronically with OSHA for public posting.

But some businesses fear the move by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will breach privacy, hinder competition and amount to unfair public shaming - without boosting safety. The rule takes effect Aug. 10 and will be phased in over two years. The first set of annual data is due to OSHA by July 2017.

The Arlington, Va.-based Retail Industry Leaders Association, which represents retailers, product manufacturers and suppliers, also believes the rule does little to advance workplace safety. oshatoday.com

CVS says 'so long' to printed receipts
The drugstore chain is launching digital receipts as a new option for all members of its ExtraCare Rewards program. The new option for digital receipts will roll out in early June and eventually be available in 7,900 retail locations. Customers will have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving paper receipts for all in-store purchases when completing their transactions in the front of the store.

Once the one-time process is completed, customers will receive receipts digitally, along with their coupons and rewards, each time they shop at a CVS store.

Once enrolled, ExtraCare members will have all receipts delivered digitally via email. Members will continue to receive exclusive benefits, personalized savings offers, available ExtraBucks Rewards and more, which can be redeemed in store by using a smartphone, tablet or computer, and then selecting the "send to card" button found next to each offer. chainstoreage.com

Retailers Say Credit Card Liability Suit Shows Conspiracy
EMV Roll-out Chargebacks Conspiracy

A proposed class of retailers told a California federal judge on Thursday that their suit accusing Visa, a Bank of America and others of working together to shift credit card fraud risk to merchants during the rollout of microchip-enabled cards has plenty of allegations to show the existence of a conspiracy.

B&R Supermarket Inc. and other retailers asked U.S. District Judge William Alsup not to dismiss their antitrust case, which accuses credit card companies and banks of agreeing to make merchants handle "chargebacks" for fraudulent transactions if they failed to meet an unreasonable October 2015 deadline to get new new payment card terminals installed and certified.  law360.com

Enormous Malware as a Service Infrastructure Fuels Ransomware Epidemic
The Check Point Research team has uncovered an operation that turns out to be one of the world's largest attack infrastructures. The malware-as-a-service (MaaS) play is being used by a cyber-criminal syndicate to use the Nuclear exploit kit to spread malware worldwide.

With 15 active Nuclear control panels, the likely Russian perpetrators behind the MaaS operation accumulates revenue of approximately $100,000 a month, according to Check Point's estimates. In the last month alone, infrastructure was used to attack 1,846,678 machines. The success rate of these attacks was 9.95%, resulting in 184,568 newly infected machines. infosecurity-magazine.com

Shoplifting Felony Thresholds For All 50 States


29 States Go Higher Than California's Prop 47

Hawaii Retail Council Helps Block Increase


While California's Proposition 47 has been getting a lot of attention in the headlines lately, with its increase in the state's felony threshold limit to $950 being blamed for a spike in shoplifting, it is far from the only state moving in that direction, as we've reported in the Daily over the past year.

Recently, the Massachusetts State Senate approved a bill to increase the felony threshold on shoplifting from $250 to $1,500. The bill is currently in the House and is expected to be signed into law by the governor.

The state of Virginia is currently looking at raising the threshold from $200 to $1,500.

Hawaii stands alone with Gov. David Ige saying he would veto a recent Retail Theft Bill attempting to increase the felony threshold from $300 to $750. The Hawaii Retail Council played a key role in blocking that legislation.

Currently, 29 states have a felony threshold for Shoplifting/Larceny of over $1,000, with the highest being Wisconsin set at $2,500. Supporters of their increase say that the law was set at $100 in 1906. In today's dollars that translates to about $2,400.

Supporters also state that the increase will lessen prison overcrowding, reduce the burden on the court system and save time for police tied up with petty shoplifting calls.

Opponents of the increase say it hurts retailers big and small, increases the cost of goods and reduces margins and profits.

Some say good people make mistakes. Should a shoplifting charge make it harder for a person to get a job, to vote, to serve on a jury, to own a firearm after being branded a felon?

Wherever you stand on the issue, it's important that Loss Prevention professionals be aware of the current laws and legislation affecting our industry and the ability to enforce our duties.

We at the D&D Daily will continue to monitor these legislative changes in our effort to keep the industry informed and up-to-date on all the latest news, information and trends impacting retail loss prevention.

Alibaba: Data and determination will keep fakes off its marketplaces
Plead their case to IACC & it's members Thursday

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. pleaded its case to hundreds of members of an anti-counterfeit group that the company has the data, technology and desire to help keep fake brands off its online marketplaces.

Company president Michael Evans addressed the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition in Orlando Thursday a week after the group abruptly suspended the Chinese Internet giant's membership, amid questions regarding conflicts of interest involving the coalition's president and complaints from some members. Alibaba only joined the IACC in April, after the group created a new membership category for the online retailer.

"We believe the future of Alibaba-and the future of many of your companies-will depend on us working closely together to fight counterfeits," Evans said in prepared remarks.

In a closed-door meeting at the group's spring conference, Evans shared new details about how Alibaba has used data culled from its marketplace, which serves 400 million shoppers and 10 million businesses, to identify suspected makers and sellers of fake products.

Alibaba's collaboration with Chinese law enforcement in 2015 resulted in the arrest of 300 people, the destruction of 46 places where counterfeits are made and the confiscation of $125 million in worth of products, Evans told the group.

Alibaba wants global brands to see its marketplaces as a gateway to Chinese customers rather than a place where counterfeits flourish. Convincing those brands that Alibaba can be a powerful ally in fighting fakes-not a foe enabling them-is a critical part of its strategy. Evans highlighted Alibaba's data as a key link to help brands fight fraud.

The company spent more than $15 million in 2015 buying merchandise on its marketplace suspected of being fake and used its payments division Alipay to freeze accounts of those suspected of selling counterfeit goods, Evans said. The company froze $72 million in accounts and refunded $12 million to customers last year, he said.

"We have the scale, we have the data and we have the commitment to be a global leader in anti-counterfeiting," Evans told the group. internetretailer.com

Online Advertising Fraud to Reach $7B in '16
New Certification Program Could Stamp it Out?

The Association of National Advertisers (ANA), estimates that online advertising fraud could top US$7 billion this year.

A new certification program, "Certified Against Fraud" is the is the brainchild of the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG), of which the ANA is one of the founders. It plans to award seals to advertising buyers, sellers, and intermediaries that meet its anti-fraud requirements.

To qualify for the seal, participants will have to comply with guidelines for detecting and filtering invalid traffic set by the Media Rating Council. Those selling advertising slots must also provide domain list filtering and data center IP list filtering, while intermediaries such as ad networks must additionally support TAG's Payment ID protocol.  pcworld.com

Edwardsville, IL: OHL Logistics employee charged with felony theft
Authorities have charged a man with felony theft and money laundering after he was accused of having expensive electronic items shipped from his employer's warehouse to his home. Charged is Tyler D. White, 30, of Belleville, who worked at OHL Contract Logistics in Edwardsville. The firm provides warehousing and logistics services for other companies, including Target. A Loss Prevention officer for OHL told police that when someone places an online order from Target for a toy or electronic item, the order is filled at the Edwardsville facility and shipped to the customer, usually by such firms as UPS or Federal Express. White would allegedly place an order for a large toy from Target, then fill the order himself, except he would place several expensive electronic devices in the box, instead of the toy. The order would then be shipped to White's home in Belleville. A supervisor allegedly caught White filling an order and checked the package.

The package in that one particular incidence contained 15 iPads, two Super Mario Land games, three Rainbow Six games, six Canon PowerShot cameras and 24 Apple watches. That one alleged theft, alone, was worth more than $22,000. The loss prevention officer reported to police that he talked to White, who allegedly admitted to stealing several times in the past. He admitted that there were stolen items at his home in Belleville.

"White stated he stole more than 100, but less than 200, Apple iPads, one Play Station, one sound bar, two cameras and 50 to 100 video games," the document stated. A check of shipping records showed that White had sent approximately 22 packages to his house since Feb. 9. After White was arrested, he told police where to find stolen items. He told them he sold some of the stolen items on Craigslist and at a pawn shop. He used his home computer to make the transactions on Craigslist and to place orders on Target.com Police obtained a search warrant and found four Apple televisions, nine Apple watches, five iPads, three wireless Apple keyboards, a laptop, 13 video games, a hard drive, a money counter and other items. thetelegraph.com
