World's largest e-commerce markets to double in size by 2018, says report
The world's largest ecommerce markets - the US, China, the UK and Germany - are
expected to double in size by 2018, according to a new study from OC&C Strategy
Consultants, PayPal and Google. According to OC&C, the research not only
identified the pull factors for shopping overseas, but also the biggest
barriers. For customers who already shop cross-border, data security, trust in
the retailer and ease of returns are particularly important. The smartphone is
seen as a vital element of this e-commerce growth.
Mobile shopping accounts for a larger share of online sales
M-commerce has upped its share of digital commerce sales in recent months,
accounting for 15.4% in the first quarter, comScore said at IRCE15. Lipsman
noted that in the fourth quarter of 2014, mobile accounted for 13.0% of digital
sales, up from 11.1% in the prior quarter, and then continued to increase to a
share of 15.4% in the first quarter of 2015.
Law Enforcement Creating Physical Safe Havens To Complete Online Transactions
Motivated by the strings of crimes powered by Craigslist and other similar sites
- robberies, scams and killings have all popped up over the last few years -
police and sheriff's departments nationwide are carving out areas of their
stations to act as commerce completion zones. From Florida to Texas, at least 70
departments nationwide have created such areas - usually in their lobbies and
parking lots - that act as a deterrent to criminals. As of yet, law-enforcement
officials said they can not determine whether the zones are reducing crime, but
some contend initial results are promising. In Coral Springs, Florida, where a
Craigslist sale resulted in a murder last year - police have had no robberies or
incidents related to online marketplaces since February, when the local
department made its parking lot available for transactions.

FBI: Three More Defendants Sentenced to Prison Terms in $2.7 Million Theft of
Mucinex and Similac Three additional Miami-area residents were
recently sentenced to prison terms in connection with violations of the Safe
Doses Act, pursuant to provisions under Title 18, United States Code, Section
670, which prohibit theft of "pre-retail" medical products. A total of eight
defendants have been convicted in connection with a cargo theft scheme. Wifredo
A Ferrer, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, George L
Piro, Special Agent in Charge, FBI, Miami Field Office, and David W Bourne,
Special Agent in Charge, Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal
Investigation (FDA-OCI), Miami Field Office, made the announcement. Jorge Nimer
Rolo, 48, Lazaro Martinez, a/k/a "Fat Laz," 45, and Antonio Ramirez, a/k/a "Tony
Bodega," 54, were recently sentenced to prison terms in connection with a scheme
to steal pre-retail medical products, including more than $2.2 million worth of
Mucinex cough medicine and $550,000 worth of Similac baby formula, as well as
other merchandise. According to the indictment and documents filed in court, as
part of an organized theft ring, 44 pallets of Similac were stolen by the
defendants and their co-conspirators from a distribution site in Fort Worth,
Texas, and more than 18,000 cases of Mucinex were pilfered from a
tractor-trailer truck in Richland, Mississippi.
theft ring of 7 preyed on NorCal Target stores - 2,200 victims Thousands
of people across Northern California have been victimized by a Sacramento-based
identity theft ring that preyed on Target stores, according to a criminal
complaint by the U.S. Attorney's Office representing the Eastern District of
California. The criminal complaint details how the seven defendants from
Sacramento were part of a conspiracy to purchase televisions, iPads and other
big-ticket items using fraudulent accounts. Federal investigators also
uncovered "at least 500 counterfeit or unauthorized access devices," Yelovich
said. "Target REDcard accounts, which are credit/debit cards that are
proprietary to Target and issued to customers of Target, were used in an
unauthorized manner by members of the conspiracy. The identity theft ring
allegedly procured stolen mail from cluster mailboxes, allowing easy access to
victims' names and banking accounts - adding up to thousands of victims so far -
in an ongoing investigation.
Attempted theft charged against Brooklyn Park man
36-year-old Brooklyn Park man, Mason Michael White, faces charges of possession
of shoplifting gear, attempted theft of over $1,000 and a controlled substance
crime in the fifth degree, possession, following a May 20 incident at a Hastings
store. According to the criminal complaint, Hastings police were called about 5
a.m. that day to the store on the report of a shoplifting in progress. When they
arrived, officers spoke with the loss prevention employee. The employee said he
observed the male suspect cutting "spider wire" anti-theft devices on many
items. The officers and the employee observed surveillance which showed the
suspect select a large box containing a child's toy. He cut the box open and set
the toy aside. Then he walked through the store selecting toys and shavers,
removing the anti-theft devices and placing the items in the large box.
Safeway ORC teams with Denver Police to bust a Baby Formula Fencing Operation
Two people arrested in a baby formula fencing operation have been accused of
taking stolen merchandise and selling some of it online. "Over the course of a
few months our stores lost roughly between $60,000 and $100,000 worth of
product," said Safeway spokeswoman Kris Staaf. Police arrested Donald Dowling,
39, and Danielle Smith, 33, after executing a search warrant related to a
fencing operation on a home in Arvada. "They had a ring going where it was
coming out of the store as a theft, then going to a fence who was buying it for
a lower rate and then selling it online at a lower rate for the consumer," said
Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson. The investigation started with the
Albertsons/Safeway Organized Retail Crime Investigators before it was turned
over to Denver police. The stores provided investigators with information on a
group of pattern shoplifters that were stealing baby formula from Safeway stores
in Denver and selling the items to a couple in Arvada. According to court
documents, Safeway's team went with a confidential informant to Dowling's home
in Arvada and sold him $1,000 worth of marked baby formula for $400. The same
team then purchased the items from an online site.
2 men try to steal over $2,000 in vacuums from Target in Orange, CT
Two men were arrested for attempting to steal over $2,000 worth of vacuum
cleaners from the Target store in Orange last week. Police say they responded to
the Target at 25 Boston Post Road around 11 p.m. Friday to the report of
shoplifting. There, officers learned that 50-year-old David Adams, of Bronx, New
York, and 54-year-old Arthur Richardson, of an unknown address, had filled their
two shopping cars with vacuum cleaners. The men had ripped off the security tags
and attempted to remove the vacuums from the store without paying, before they
were stopped by store security and detained for police. The two shopping carts
full of vacuum cleaners totaled $2607.35.
South Charleston, SC Police arrest another Out-of-State Group using "fake"
credit cards Police say another group of out-of-towners was found
using fake credit cards at stores on Corridor G and arrested Friday. On May 19,
six people from New Jersey were arrested with stacks of magnetic-stripe cards
re-encoded with stolen credit card numbers. In Friday's incident it was a group
of four from Chicago. South Charleston police were dispatched to the Wal-Mart on
Corridor G in response to a complaint about four women using stolen or altered
credit cards inside the store. Once all four women were back in the Jeep, they
began tearing off tags and throwing them out the window and onto the ground, the
complaint stated. The police moved in and detained the women. The police found
numerous pieces of clothing and merchandise tags laying around and under the
vehicle. Matthew Chiders, a Target loss-prevention associate, later notified the
police that each of the four women had used four fake cards at that store
earlier, including photographic evidence of the women. There were 75 fake credit
cards in the three stacks found in the center console, according to a later
count by the Secret Service, who were contacted by the police.
One shoplifting call leads to even more arrests at Colorado Springs Kmart
While police officers were investigating a shoplifting incident at a Colorado
Springs Kmart on Sunday night, they caught two more people allegedly stealing
items from the store. Colorado Springs police were called in just after 7 p.m.
Sunday to the Kmart on the 3000 block of North Nevada Avenue to investigate a
shoplifting suspect, who turned out to have a felony warrant for dangerous
drugs, according to a police statement. While talking to a Kmart loss prevention
officer, officers spotted "two additional unrelated subjects" on the
surveillance cameras allegedly shoplifting, police said. The suspects "had
several outstanding felony and misdemeanor warrants and both possessed a small
amount of suspected methamphetamine," police said in their report. "One of the
subjects was identified as a criminal street gang member and had items believed
to be utilized to combat security devices applied to high-value merchandise,"
the police statement said. Several IDs and credit cards believed to be stolen
were found on the shoplifting suspects.

Police say Pursuit of Shoplifter ended 4 minutes before Fatal Crash
Officers with both Indianapolis and Beech Grove police departments say a pursuit
involving a shoplifting suspect was called off four minutes before the suspect
was involved in a fatal crash that killed a 63-year old grandmother and
seriously injured three others. What's unclear is whether the suspect, 21-year
old Matthew Edmonds, knew he was no longer being pursued by police. The crash
occurred around 8:19 a.m. Monday at the intersection of State and Prospect
streets in the Fountain Square neighborhood. The pursuit began at 8:11 a.m. -
six miles away at a Walmart on South Emerson Avenue. IMPD Lt. Richard Riddle
says Beech Grove police were responding to the store after Loss Prevention
managers reported a shoplifter. A minute after arriving on scene, Beech Grove
police began chasing Edmonds, Riddle said. Three minutes later - at 8:14 a.m. -
Beech Grove police cancelled the chase after noticing that Edmonds was driving
westbound in the eastbound lanes. A minute after that at 8:15 a.m., IMPD
supervisors notified its officers to cancel its pursuit, Riddle said. Lt. Riddle
said Edmonds continued to flee and never stopped as officers attempted to pull

Canada: Durham Regional Police investigate after gunshots fired at mall in
Pickering Durham Regional Police are looking for a man after shots
were fired in the parking lot of the Pickering Town Centre on Sunday. On Sunday,

Video released of Boston terror suspect's fatal shooting outside CVS
Surveillance video showing terror investigators fatally shooting a man they said
had "malicious intent" to kill officers doesn't show him brandishing a weapon or
approaching officers aggressively as police have maintained, his family said
Monday. Usaama Rahim's family said in a statement that the blurry video shows
that the 26-year-old security guard was not the initial aggressor and that he
did not appear to be breaking any laws as he walked toward a bus stop on his way
to work on June 2. They suggested many unanswered questions remain, including
whether deadly force was necessary and whether the decision to approach Rahim
with a team of armed police officers "in a military-like formation, without
benefit of a warrant, constituted an attempted illegal arrest."
burglars stopped, flee into woods in Lake City, FL Police are
currently searching for three men wanted in an early morning burglary of a
GameStop store off U.S.-90 in Lake City. On a routine check of local businesses
early Monday morning, Lake City police noticed a white Dodge Grand Caravan pull
out of the parking lot of a shopping center and take off down U.S. 90. Police
followed the van, which immediately pulled into the parking lot of Pizza Hut and
parked at the back of the lot where the three men then got out of the car, and
ran off into the woods. Police went back to the shopping plaza and found two
large holes smashed through the wall into the back of a GameStop, a sledgehammer
and water spraying from a broken pipe. According to officials, the three men got
away but police were able to recover the van, three X-Box One gaming systems,
six X-Box One Kinect gaming systems, nine X-Box One Halo Edition gaming systems
and five PlayStation four gaming systems. All together police said the men had
grabbed $10,550 worth of electronics.
100 phones stolen in Cricket Wireless Robbery in Des Plaines, IA
Des Plaines police are looking for two men who stole 100 cellphones valued at
more than $13,000 and cash during the robbery of a Cricket Wireless store last
week. The suspects entered the business, located at 1184 Lee St., at 12:23 p.m.

to the store minutes after the fight broke out last Thursday just after 10 p.m.

a physical altercation. Police said one woman was bickering with a store
employee about the aisle's presentation when the second woman got involved.

Social media can be a fantastic platform for
every company and executive, but it can also be a nightmare. Mixing personal
with professional oftentimes sends the wrong messages and can absolutely destroy
the image a professional needs to maintain in the public arena. Maintaining
boundaries and separating the two can oftentimes be difficult to accomplish as
corporate America searches for every piece of information they can find on
executives and companies. And regardless of what anyone says, your professional
image should always take precedence over your personal image in the social media
