Terrorist Attack at Israeli Mall
4 killed, 6 wounded, 2 arrested in shooting at Tel Aviv shopping center

Two attackers identified as Palestinians opened fire Wednesday night at a popular food and shopping complex near the Israeli Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv, killing four Israelis and sending other patrons scrambling to safety. Two terrorists were captured, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, with one shot and the second arrested at the upscale Sarona Market.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called "a savage crime, murder in the heart of Tel Aviv."

Surveillance footage from a cafe near the shooting scene showed chaos as panicked customers knocked over chairs and tables as they rushed to escape. People crawled across the floor and others carried children in their arms. The attackers were dressed as Hasidic Jews, said a law enforcement source briefed by Israeli officials.

Sarona Market is a mixed-use development with a food hall, upscale retail, playgrounds, green space and residences on a central highway. The market is considered a "classic soft terror target."

The Jerusalem Post reported in April that Tel Aviv police wanted to close the market because of "security flaws and safety shortcomings that present a risk to the public's safety." But a spokesman for Gindi Holding, which built the market, told The Post the complex would not be closed and that violations only involved tables and chairs blocking entrances and exits and the way security guards were inspecting visitors at the door. haaretz.com cnn.com

FedEx Waives Jury On Eve Of Drug Trafficking Trial
- Could potentially face fines up to $1.7 Billion

FedEx Corp. waived its right to a jury Wednesday on the eve of a federal criminal trial in a case accusing the shipping company and its subsidiaries of money laundering and drug trafficking for allegedly helping online pharmacies send prescription drugs illegally ordered online, court records show.

FedEx Corp. and its subsidiaries FedEx Corporate Services Inc. and FedEx Express were accused in a July 2014 indictment of colluding with two major online pharmacies, the Chhabra-Smoley Organization and Superior Drugs, to knowingly ship packages containing illegal drugs.

Prosecutors charged FedEx with 15 counts relating to trafficking controlled substances and misbranded drugs, later adding three counts of conspiracy to launder money. FedEx could be forced to return its gross proceeds of $860 million and be fined up to twice that amount, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors say that FedEx management knew the company was delivering to addicts and drug dealers after drivers complained that customers demanding pills were stopping them on the road. The drivers said that deliveries were addressed to vacant parking lots where multiple customers were waiting. law360.com

9th Circ. Sends Back JPMorgan, CVS Workplace Seating Suits
The Ninth Circuit on Wednesday tossed lower court rulings denying class certification to CVS Pharmacy Inc. cashiers and JPMorgan Chase & Co. tellers in separate suits accusing the employers of not providing seating under California law, ordering reconsideration in light of recent state Supreme Court guidance. In separate orders, the federal appeals court reversed and remanded the actions to the presiding district judge, handing a win to the putative classes of CVS cashiers and Chase Bank tellers who accused their employers of violating a state wage rule that requires them to provide seats if the "nature of the work reasonably permits" the employee to sit. law360.com

Wal-Mart Seating Class Cert. Upheld By 9th Circ.

NRF Op-Ed to Congress:
'Why don't banks care more about credit card security?'

Our nation's largest retailer, Walmart, recently moved to make debit card transactions more secure by requiring that customers use the PIN when they use a debit card that has a chip. Amazingly, Visa - which claims to care about security - refused to allow Walmart to do that, and forced Walmart to go to court to defend its right to protect its customers.

Americans should be outraged that their banks and credit card companies don't care as much about card security as they claim. And why is that? Because the major card companies have set up the system so they and the banks make a little more money on average when they get people to sign. (Visa owns the largest signature network.) thehill.com

Slicing Into a Point-of-Sale Botnet
Last week, KrebsOnSecurity broke the news of an ongoing credit card breach involving CiCi's Pizza, a restaurant chain in the United States with more than 500 locations. What follows is an exclusive look at a point-of-sale botnet that appears to have enslaved dozens of hacked payment terminals inside of CiCi's locations that are being relieved of customer credit card data in real time. krebsonsecurity.com

Advance Auto Says No Harm, No Standing In Data Breach Suit
Advance Auto Parts on Tuesday pushed a Louisiana federal court to dismiss a proposed class action claiming remedies offered to employees after a data breach do not resolve the negligence that caused the incident, arguing there is no evidence employees have suffered any harm.

The Virginia-based auto parts retailer said lead plaintiff and former employee Walter Bradix IV, who along with a number of other workers allegedly had his social security number and gross wages accessed from W-2's gained through a phishing attack, has presented nothing in the litigation that gives him standing to pursue the suit. law360.com

Is monitoring employee data the right move for retailers?
Wearables are giving employers the potential to measure worker productivity. But should they? Consumers are already using Fitbits and other devices to track their own biometrics and seek improvements in their personal lives. A view into their workers' health indicators and habits could offer employers insights to help support happier and healthier staffs and ultimately improve productivity.

On the downside, making business decisions based on an employee's health, stress levels or sleep patterns can be seen as discriminatory. The accuracy of many wearable apps is also being questioned. The biggest hurdles to using wearables to monitor employees are privacy and security. A CIO Magazine article noted how storing reams of personal data about their employees would add another level of the data-breach risks to corporations as well as the temptation to monetize that data. retailwire.com


New York: Governor Cuomo Signs ORC Legislation into Law

Governor Andrew Cuomo today signed legislation that establishes in New York State statute a first-ever definition of "organized retail crime theft." As many of you know, this effort has been years in the making, complete with countless legislative meetings, conferences and many hurdles along the way. Many thanks to those of you who provided valuable input throughout the (long) process. While this is certainly a major win, in our view, we are also looking at this new law as a building block in continuing our efforts to combat instances of organized retail crime throughout New York State.

The law defines "organized retail theft crime" as "the crime of larceny, including by trick, fraud, embezzlement, stealing or false pretenses, of retail merchandise in quantities that would not normally be purchased for personal use or consumption, for the purposes of reselling, trading, or otherwise reentering such retail merchandise in commerce." In addition, the law will allow for prosecution of defendants for criminal actions included in a pattern of offenses related to organized retail crime (ORC) in any contiguous county where at least one offense has occurred. The law goes into effect on November 1, 2016.

There's No Business Like The Cyber Fraud Business
Reitblat and his team anticipated what's now our reality by monitoring the places on the dark web where fraudsters communicate with each other and perfect their plans. There, sometimes posing as bad guys themselves, they become part of conversations about how to defraud merchants online. Reitblat's team, which includes top cybersecurity talent from the Israeli military, then develops keen insight on what he calls "cybercrime as a service."

"Thousands of devices - bots - are now attacking thousands of merchants at a certain time and successfully committing fraud. Since these bots are offered as a service to [the fraudsters], it's now becoming way easier for them to commit online fraud than before because of EMV migration," Reitblat added.

Fraudsters are also finding new, creative ways to automate the reselling of their goods in one place by setting up their own eCommerce sites using basic platforms, which is making cracking the fraud equation even more complicated.

"Fraudsters are moving online, fraudsters are automating. Fraudsters are boosting their bottom line at the expense of yours." pymnts.com

Amazon pushes back against fake reviews by suing sellers
Amazon took another step to purge fake reviews from its site last week by suing three sellers for using false accounts to post positive reviews about their products. According to TechCrunch, Amazon is looking to permanently ban the defendants in the suit from buying and selling on its website, and is also seeking all the profits the sellers made on Amazon, attorneys' fees and damages exceeding $25,000. This is the first time Amazon has sued sellers on its marketplace. The three cases against sellers filed with the American Arbitration Association target merchants that use "sock puppets" to provide overwhelmingly positive reviews on their products. Amazon is stepping up its game for good reason: Many customers use online reviews when evaluating a purchase, with 95 percent saying they have consulted reviews in the past, according to research from PowerReviews. retailwire.com

Visa Gives Issuers New Tool To Capture Digital Commerce Opportunity
Visa Digital Commerce App, he said, will not only open the door for a deeper digital engagement between FI and their customers but he hopes, shift the conventional thinking about how to transact in a digital world. The Visa Digital Commerce App is not a "wallet" but a "thin app focused on commerce" - essentially digitizing Visa-branded cards in an issuer-branded experience. pymnts.com

San Diego County, CA: Suspects in 'High-End' SoCal Shoplifting Ring Busted; targeted Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, Victoria's Secret and Gap
Four suspects in a high-end shoplifting ring were arrested Wednesday when authorities served search warrants in South San Diego, Chula Vista and the Lake Elsinore area. The arrests culminated an investigation that lasted more than two and a half months and involved 11 documented theft cases spanning three states and five counties in California. "The search warrants served were in support of the investigation of a series of thefts at high-end retail stores, led by Lorena Ramirez and Zakharias Karasoulas, both of whom have personally stolen an estimated total of over $700,000 since 2011," said Detective Rene Kirchhoefer. While serving the warrants, authorities recovered $12,000 worth of new and tagged retail merchandise. patch.com

$14,000 of Ammo stolen from Gander Mountain sold for Herion Addiction
Heroin sent Paul Goetz-Hoke, 28, and Daniel Ringle, 25, to prison, each for 18 months to five years, but not for possession of the drug. Both men stole thousands of dollars of items to support their drug addiction. Judge Bill O'Grady has warned the impact of the very addictive drug is not just to the user and families, but to the community as a whole. Goetz-Hoke pleaded guilty to first degree retail theft and organized crime - both five-year felonies. He and accomplice Kayla Wagoner,21, stole $14,419 worth of ammunition from Gander Mountain and sold it to Coldwater Gun and Pawn for cash so he could buy drugs. The thefts took place over 26 days in January, a box or two at a time. The pawn shop owner became suspicious and called Branch County prosecutor Ralph Kimble who notified police. Ringle stole $1,352 in liquor, four days in February, from the Marathon Station in Bronson. He told Bronson Police there was a "hit" out for him because of his drug debts. thedailyreporter.com

Located in the vehicle were a large number of merchandise return cards from various Home Depot stores as well as numerous items which was later determined to have been stolen/shoplifted from Home Depot stores outside of New Jersey. bergendispatch.com

Polk County, FL: Polk County Deputies search for serial Shoplifter hitting area C-Stores
Polk deputies say the serial shoplifter hit this same store three times with little interest in the cash drawer. Investigators say he's more concerned with lining his stomach than his pockets. The suspect is seen on surveillance video stealing chips, soda, and honey buns. "On the third time he came in, he's just stuffing his pockets. The owner says, I've had enough of this and hit the button to lock his door," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Wednesday. Nothing was stopping this honey bun bandit from bolting. He's seen on surveillance video barreling through the store's door with his snacks in tow. While the crime may seem minimal, deputies say this suspect can't seem to satisfy his sweet tooth. They believe he's hit a number of convenience stores across Polk County. fox13news.com

Brooklyn, NY: Gang busted for trafficking in guns, drugs and fake credit cards; FBI seized a Fed-Ex package with 1300 cards
Fourteen people have been arrested on allegations of narcotics trafficking and illegal weapons possession in the Cypress Hills Houses, an NYCHA complex in East New York. Since November 2015, the FBI, NYPD and U.S. Attorney's Office have been investigating the Back Side Crew, a local gang that took its name from the section of the Cypress Hills Houses that borders Euclid Avenue, officials reported. Some members of the gang allegedly self-identify as members of the Crips street gang. The investigation also revealed firearms trafficking and a large-scale fraudulent credit card scheme, the U.S. Attorney's Office added. The FBI seized a Fed-Ex package shipped by a defendant that contained more than 1,300 fraudulently manufactured credit cards that bore no names. metro.us

Atlanta, GA: Police are overwhelmed with Identity Theft epidemic
Atlanta police say credit card information theft is an epidemic, with thousands of local cases each year. And with so many complaints, police say it's hard to investigate all of them in a timely manner. "We only have so many detectives, but we have so many cases. And they work them as they get to them," said Sgt. Paul Cooper with the APD's Major Fraud Unit. "The U.S. does less than 25 percent of all credit card transactions worldwide, but we carry more than 50 percent of the fraud," Cooper said new statistics show. But police don't expect credit card companies to do away with magnetic strips in the U.S. for at least five more years. wsbtv.com

It's all in the prep! What an understatement. Preparation is the footer to all successful programs, trips, interviews, rollouts, virtually everything. Quite frankly, it's also the lack thereof that leads to most failures. One cannot over prepare for anything you do, but the key is, once prepped, having the faith in yourself to pull it off. There's an imaginary line you cross when you get close to the time you have to perform where you've got to put down the prep and relax right before the game starts so to speak and just rely on your memory and instincts to kick into gear. It's almost like you need time to let your brain take a break right before the gun sounds so you can allow your focus to take hold and your instincts to take over. Prep-Focus-Perform, what a rhythm!
