Loss Prevention Teams
Honored For Volunteer Work
the NRF PROTECT Loss Prevention Conference and Expo, loss prevention
professionals and members of law enforcement were honored with the NRF
PROTECT Awards. Recipients were recognized for case work, partnership with
law enforcement and career achievements. But at the grand finale event on
the final day of the conference, NRF paid special tribute to the loss
prevention teams that make volunteering in the community a priority.
Loss prevention and asset protection teams from Blain's Farm and Fleet,
Dress Barn and Gap went above and beyond the call of duty by giving back to
numerous community programs. Watch the video for more about how and why
these teams give back and the impact they make on their communities.
Three Indicted in Attempted Extortion of Waffle House Chairman
An ex-housekeeper for the chairman of Waffle House and two of her attorneys have
been indicted in Georgia on charges they conspired to extort the executive
during a four-year legal battle over secretly recorded video of sexual
The indictments are the latest twist in a dispute that began in mid-2012 after
Mye Brindle resigned following more than a decade as housekeeper and then
personal assistant for Joe Rogers Jr., head of the Norcross, Ga.-based
Prosecutors allege a sexual encounter between Brindle and Rogers in his
bedroom was illegally recorded on video and the lawyers used that video in an
effort to force Rogers to pay millions of dollars to prevent its release.
Secretly recording a citizen in his own bedroom is an eavesdropping felony in
Georgia that can carry a prison sentence of up to five years, prosecutors
said. The Fulton County grand jury also indicted Brindle and attorneys David
Cohen and John Butters on charges of conspiracy to commit unlawful eavesdropping
and eavesdropping, prosecutors said on Friday.
Massive ID Theft Ring Uncovered
Victimized hundreds, maybe thousands, including Hollywood actress
Federal agents said they have uncovered a massive international identity-theft
scheme that victimized at least hundreds and maybe thousands of people,
including an actress who appeared in the television shows "Smallville" and
Federal authorities arrested two people in Virginia and two people in Georgia on
Thursday as part of a sophisticated operation they say involved stealing
identities and producing fake shell companies that could apply for high-balance
The sprawling conspiracy involved many millions of dollars, authorities
say, though after two years of investigation they believe they have only
scratched the surface. Court documents say that the group would bill credit card
companies for payments to its own shell companies, then route the money through
various entities and sometimes out of the country.
Organized under the umbrella "the Deutche Group," the conspiracy extended
to India, Thailand and Britain as well as the United States. The conspirators
would advertise jobs for Deutche Group on Craigslist, according to authorities,
and then steal the personal information applicants gave them. They also set up
online companies offering airfare and hotel deals, according to court filings,
then pocketed the funds and used stolen credit cards to book the travel. Some
travelers were stranded partway through vacations when their itineraries were
canceled due to fraud alerts.
Lawsuit: Security guards chased accused shoplifter to death
The family of a suspected shoplifter who drowned in 2014 near
Arundel Mills mall has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the shopping
center's security staff for allegedly chasing him to his death. The family
of Tavon Talley filed the lawsuit against Valor Security Services and Mydatt
Services in Baltimore City Circuit Court in February. A judge has denied a
motion by the defendants to transfer the case to Anne Arundel Circuit Court
and allowed the dispute to move forward to trial. The lawsuit states that in
2014, four security guards and a store manager, also a defendant in the
suit, chased 26-year-old Talley from inside a store, where he was suspected
of shoplifting, to a nearby pond where Talley jumped in and didn't
resurface. The lawsuit says the defendants then failed to call 911
immediately. Talley's body was later recovered.
Fence being installed at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort beach
A construction crew has begun installing a fence around the Walt Disney World
resort where an alligator grabbed a 2-year-old child. Lane Graves, 2, was
grabbed by a gator Tuesday while he was in shallow water near the Grand
Floridian Resort. An animal described as being as long as 7 feet snatched the
little boy as he waded in shallow water Tuesday night. The beach had "no
swimming" signs but none warning about alligators.
Earlier in the week, Disney said it would be adding gator warnings as well.
There were signs up at the time, but they had no mention on the presence of
alligators. Friday afternoon, that changed. Signs are now posted throughout the
property. Additionally, workers have installed a fence.
So far, at least six gators have been captured. It is still unknown if the gator
responsible for killing Lane is among them. The beaches at Disney remain closed.
Orlando Gunman Bought $9,000 Worth of Jewelry Days Before Shooting
Omar Mateen bought nearly $9,000 worth of jewelry less than a week before he
killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, ABC News has
learned. The purchase was made June 6 at the Kay Jewelers in Jensen Beach,
Florida, which is near the Lotus Gun Shop where Mateen attempted to buy body
armor. Signet, which owns Kay Jewelers, would not confirm the purchase by Mateen,
but issued a statement that they are "working closely with the authorities."
Walgreens Leads Fight
Against Prescription Drug Abuse in Oklahoma
Walgreens today announced that it has implemented two programs in Oklahoma
to combat drug abuse, part of a comprehensive national plan to address key
contributors to the crisis.
Walgreens has installed nine safe
medication disposal kiosks in Walgreens locations across the state. The safe
medication disposal kiosks make the disposal of medications easier while
helping to reduce the misuse of medications and the rise in overdose deaths.
Walgreens has also made naloxone, a potentially lifesaving opioid
antidote, available without requiring a prescription from an individual's
physician in all of its Oklahoma pharmacies in accordance with state

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union is seeking its fourth
contract with the two chains since an epic 141-day strike that brought the
region's supermarkets to their knees in 2003 and 2004. A strike would affect
Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions and Safeway stores. The starting wage
for a worker at the two chains currently is $10.10 an hour, just over the
current state minimum.
2 Retailers Fending Off Amazon.com
TJX and Ross Stores increase sales despite Amazon's Q1 dominance
The first quarter was tough for most retailers as Amazon.com continued to
grab share of consumers' wallets. Not every brick-and-mortar retailer
suffered from poor sales performance, however, as TJX beat analysts
estimates last quarter with $7.5 billion in sales, compared with the $7.3
billion the Street was looking for.
TJX's off-price counterpart, Ross
Stores, didn't fare as well, missing analysts' estimates, but sales still
climbed more than 5%. Those are growth numbers Amazon's direct competitors,
such as Wal-Mart or Target, would love to have. Wal-Mart and Target saw
sales growth of 0.9% and -5.4%, respectively.

The retail EMV quagmire
An analysis of Home Depot's lawsuit against Visa and MasterCard
Retailers have this love-hate relationship with EMV, in that they love to hate
EMV. It's slow, cumbersome, alienates customers and until a store fully deploys
it, the liability shift is expensive. There's also a reasonable argument that
the liability shift is not fair to merchants, since they are being punished for
something that is often out of their control.
With that in mind, it's easy to understand why major retailers - Walmart last
month and Home Depot last week - are suing Visa and MasterCard in an attempt to
fight chip cards
any way they can.
Of course, the retail argument isn't quite phrased that way. The party line is
that the litigation is aimed not at stopping EMV but in making it more secure
by way of insisting on PIN authentication instead of the existing signature
In words lifted from the Home Depot lawsuit, this is Home Depot's argument
(which is quite similar to a May lawsuit against the same two card brands from
Walmart): "For years, Visa and MasterCard have been more concerned with
protecting their own inflated profits and their dominant market positions than
with the security of the payment cards used by American consumers and the health
of the United States economy. Visa and MasterCard have pushed consumers to use
payment card technology that Visa and MasterCard know is defective and subject
to fraud and have colluded with each other and with the banks that issue debit
and credit cards to do so."
Fraudulent Practices in Online Payments Via Smartphones: A Looming Threat?
While a slim percentage, 1.9% of the sellers have noticed a major increase in
mobile fraud, one of the more worrying signs is the fact that nearly 1 out of 2
sellers are uncertain if the rates of fraud have changed over the past one year.
This highlights one of the major problems in the mobile online transaction
industry- there is a distinct lack of knowledge among the sellers as to whether
mobile fraud is even occurring at their end.
A new study shows that a startling 43% of merchants have no idea how much
losses they have incurred through mobile frauds
. Of the remaining 57%
keeping tabs, a vast majority of 43% say that mobile frauds account for less
than 10% of their total fraud losses
While the fact that the losses from the channel have been kept to a minimum is
indeed good news, one of the more interesting facts that have come to light is
the fact that for most sellers, domestic frauds and international frauds occur
at almost the same frequency with 31.4% for the former and 28.6% for the latter.
'Spam King' gets 30 months in prison for sending 27M Facebook messages
Sanford Wallace, a hacker who sent more than 27 million spam messages on
Facebook, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison. He was also ordered to pay
$310,629 in fines. Wallace, better known as the "Spam King," compromised more
than 500,000 Facebook accounts between November 2008 and March 2009 by sending
users links to websites with malware. The malicious sites would then harvest
users' log-in credentials and friend lists - making it easier for Wallace to
send mass messages. Through all the links Wallace sent, he was able to earn
money since the companies paid him for high traffic referrals.
34,400 credit cards, addresses, and security codes exposed by Acer online store
If you bought an Acer device from the company's store in the last year, there's
a chance that your credit card info was hijacked. The Taiwan-based company
informed California's attorney general that attackers made off with the "name,
address, card number, expiration date and three-digit security codes" of users
between May 12, 2015 and April 28, 2016. It sent form letters to the 34,500
affected customers, all of whom are in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.
Checkpoint Reveals 3rd National Source Tagging Symposium Findings From
Retailers, CPG Manufacturers; Hosted by CVS Health
Drugstores, Specialty Retailers, Manufacturers Share Source Tagging Best
Practices Across the Supply Chain
THOROFARE, N.J. - June 14, 2016 - Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading
global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry,
today announced findings from its third-annual National Source Tagging
Symposium, which was hosted at CVS Health Headquarters in Cumberland, Rhode
source tagging road shows and innovative tours will be held around the globe
throughout the year starting this month. Attendees typically are represented by
various vertical markets, from drug/pharmacy, to discount stores, to
supermarkets, to general apparel and specialty accessories as well as cosmetic
and pharmaceutical consumer package goods (CPG) manufacturers.
These events provide a forum for retailers and CPG manufacturers to work
together on source tagging initiatives that will reduce their labor costs and
shrink, while protecting brands and improving their in-store shopper experience.
VP of Loss Prevention at a major North American drugstore chain previously noted
that source tagging alone reduced theft of high-risk items by 44 percent.
Another noted that "visible tags are a great theft deterrent, and source tagging
protects the look and feel of premium packaging better than in-store tagging."
Because of the proven benefits of visual source tagging, another major retailer
has determined that its products must have visual 'Security Protected' marking
or visible circuit as a minimum. One of its LP executives noted that it is
better to "deter than to catch."
This year's presenters included experts from retailers and CPG manufacturers
from across the globe. The symposium began with an open panel discussion
conducted by Colin Peacock (ECR Community Shrink, OSA Group) who allowed
participants to share their shrink pain points and best practices among other
loss prevention professionals sharing a major goal in common of decreasing
The event boasted a double digit increase in attendance from 2015 with a record
number of new CPGs and retailers.
During this year's session, leading drugstores and specialty retailers in
attendance shared three critical factors for source tagging success.
Click here to learn the three critical findings.

2016 National Cargo Theft Task Force Summit Conference Recap
2 day 2016 National Cargo Theft Task Force Summit was held June 14-15 at the
Shriner's Conference Center in Addison, Illinois, just a few miles south of
Chicago. The conference was hosted by title sponsor NICB (National Insurance

comprised of FBI, US Marshals and local law enforcement, presented their
interstate cargo theft investigation which began in Memphis, TN and extended to
Nashville and ultimately to the fence located Detroit, Michigan. According to US
Marshal Service's Oscar Blythe, "the Kroger ORC teams played an active and vital
role in this investigation. Kroger ORC teams partnered with the task force for
this operation to provide product for the bait load, surveillance, assisted with
identifying stolen products and providing logistics for the $1M+ seizure at the
fence's warehouse in Detroit". ORC Investigators Donny Blackwell and Glenn Alred
were presented with Outstanding Merit Unit Citation Awards from the FBI and the
task force. Interesting, but not surprising, was the link between cargo thefts
