2 Millionth Incident of Scan-Avoidance ID'd by StopLift at Piggly Wiggly checkout - Enabled owner to crack down on theft
When StopLift detected its 2 millionth incident of scan avoidance at a Piggly Wiggly, the supermarket's owner knew that cashiers were either stealing or failing to scan items, costing his supermarkets major losses.

Chris Ajlouny, owner of 11 Piggly Wiggly supermarkets in the Birmingham, AL area, did not tell any employees at his stores when he installed StopLift, so that he could see the extent of scan avoidance. In the first week, he saw three cashiers steal $400-$500 at a time, sliding groceries around the scanner and later getting "kickbacks" from the customer. One cashier admitted to getting kickbacks outside the store and was fired.

"I'm amazed that we were the 2 millionth incident," Ajlouny said. "The system has accomplished a lot. As long as we keep stopping these people, it's excellent. I wouldn't open a store without having StopLift installed." Read more here.

Indiana Specialty Pharmacy Compliance Director & CEO Charged
Selling Adulterated Drugs

Pharmakon Pharmaceuticals Inc. owner and president Paul J. Elmer, 64, and compliance director Caprice R. Bearden, 62, were indicted Tuesday on one count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S., three counts of distributing an adulterated drug in interstate commerce, and six counts of adulterating drugs while held for sale after shipment of a drug component in interstate commerce, prosecutors said.
This conduct led to three infants in an Indiana hospital being given morphine sulfate that was almost 25 times stronger than indicated.
During 2014 and 2016 FDA inspections, Bearden said they'd never received any potency tests with negative results and Elmer made no move to correct her once learning of the lie, the government said. Compliance Dir. Elmer also told an employee to backdate records for the later inspection, according to the charges.

The pair allegedly received 70 tests that showed issues with their drug potency, but continued to move forward with the drugs and not alert the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or individuals and health care providers, including hospitals, that had received the drugs, prosecutors said. law360.com

Store closings have tripled so far this year
5,300 closures so far in 2017
2nd only to 2008 - But we may surpass it

Stores are closing at alarming rate. The number so far this year is triple what it was in the same period last year, according to an analysis by Fung Global Retail & Technology, a retail think tank.

There have been 5,300 store closing announcements through June 20, making it the second worst year on record at the six-month mark. The worst year ever for store closings was 2008 during the Great Recession, when Credit Suisse counted 6,163 closings. But 2017 is poised to easily surpass that. cnn.com

Sears to close 20 more stores as crisis continues
260 closures so far in 2016 - Leaving Sears with 1,100 remaining stores

Sears Holdings is closing another 20 stores as the distressed department-store chain seeks to stanch the bleeding amid swirling challenges for the retail sector.

The company will shutter 18 Sears stores and two Kmart locations, real estate investment trust Seritage Growth Properties confirmed in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

The move adds to a steady drip of closures that now add up to more than 260 for the year, leaving the company with more than 1,100 remaining locations. usatoday.com

Milwaukee, WI: Judges affirm 'Making a Murderer' Confession Was Coerced
The confession of a Wisconsin inmate featured in the Netflix series "Making a Murderer" was improperly obtained and he should be re-tried or released from prison, a three-judge federal appeals panel ruled Thursday. Brendan Dassey was sentenced to life in prison in 2007 in photographer Teresa Halbach's death on Halloween two years earlier. Dassey told detectives he helped his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill Halbach in the Avery family's Manitowoc County salvage yard. Avery was sentenced to life in a separate trial. A federal magistrate judge ruled in August that investigators coerced Dassey, who was 16 years old at the time and suffered from cognitive problems, into confessing and overturned his conviction. The state Justice Department appealed the ruling to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a move that kept Dassey, now 27, behind bars pending the outcome. A three-judge panel from the Chicago-based 7th Circuit upheld the magistrate's decision to overturn his conviction. Wisconsin can appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, ask for a review by the full 7th Circuit or re-try Dassey within 90 days. Johnny Koremenos, a spokesman for Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel, said the office expects to seek review by the full 7th Circuit or the U.S. Supreme Court, and hopes "that today's erroneous decision will be reversed." goerie.com

FBI Report:
Extortion, CEO Fraud Among Top Online Fraud Complaints in 2016
Cybercriminals responsible for $1.3 billion in reported losses

Online extortion, tech support scams and phishing attacks that spoof the boss were among the most costly cyber scams reported by consumers and businesses last year, according to new figures from the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).

The IC3 report released Thursday correctly identifies some of the most prevalent and insidious forms of cybercrimes today, but the total financial losses tied to each crime type also underscore how infrequently victims actually report such crimes to law enforcement.


In all, the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received a total of 298,728 complaints last year concerning malicious activity attributed to about $1.33 billion in losses, according to its latest annual report.

Overall, last year's figures are up from 2015 when the IC3 received 288,012 complaints involving $1.07 billion in losses - 24 percent less than the FBI's latest tally.


The most profitable type of cybercrime reported last year - a scam commonly known as "Business Email Compromise," or "BEC" - earned fraudsters over $360.5 million from about 12,000 victims in 2016, the report said. BEC scams are carried out by tricking targets into conducting unauthorized bank transfers and are typically leveled against corporations that regularly perform international transactions. The IC3 only began receiving complaints about BEC in 2010, but included it last year's report at the top of its list of "hot topics for 2015." fbi.gov krebsonsecurity.com washingtontimes.com

Deloitte: Retailers have false sense of cyber-security
According to a Deloitte study, more than three-quarters (76%) of consumer business executives are highly confident in their ability to respond to a cyber incident. Yet, many face issues that critically impair their ability to do so.

For example, a majority of executives surveyed (82%) indicated their organization has not documented and tested cyber response plans involving business stakeholders within the past year. Less than half (46%) said their organization performs war games and threat simulations on a quarterly or semiannual basis. One quarter (25%) reported a lack of cyber-funding, while roughly one in five (21%) lack clarity on cyber mandates, roles and responsibilities. lafestar.com

Deterrence Isn't Enough

The Real Solution to Slowing Retail Store Crime:
Putting Criminals Away

See this technology in action at NRF Protect Booth 1129
and at the EXPO Hall Breakout Sessions

Most stores use alarms, locks, safes, cameras and other crime deterrents, but criminals continue to target retail locations for robberies, sometimes violent. Deterrents can stop some crimes, but criminals either learn to outsmart them or, are so strongly motivated, will rob regardless of preventive measures used. The only surefire way to prevent crimes is to lock up crooks. 3SI Security Systems' tracking technology does just that: it puts criminals behind bars, stopping them from committing crimes. Further, it recovers stolen cash and assets so store owners can get back to business with minimal losses.

Over 80,000 3SI trackers are protecting assets around the world and leverage multiple technologies (GPS, Cellular and RF) for pinpoint accuracy in tracking. Other important features include:

Covert packaging to disguise the tracker from criminals;
• Device self-health check to ensure it is ready to protect 24/7;
• Reliable performance in challenging locations where other trackers fail;
• Device is up and running to protect your store in less than 15 minutes;
• Device automatically notifies police...store owners and employees stay clear of potentially dangerous situations;
Solution is scalable and can protect one store or thousands.

3SI GPS Tracking is available to protect most retail businesses, including:

• Cash in drawers, safes, vaults and during transportation;
• Jewelry in displays and safes, and during transportation;
• Smart Phones / Tablets;
• Cigarettes, in both packs and cartons;
• Pharmaceuticals;
• Miscellaneous high-value assets.

At NRF Protect, see Eastern US Sales Manager Dan Kopchik and current 3SI customers discussing how they successfully employ GPS Tracking to protect their employees, customers and inventory. The session, entitled "Security Where Criminals Least Expect It", will be held on Wednesday, June 28th at 10:15 a.m. in the EXPO Hall EXPO Stage.

Fake online stores reveal gamblers' shadow banking system
Used to disguise payments for illegal $40B online gambling industry

A network of dummy online stores offering household goods has been used as a front for internet gambling payments, a Reuters examination has found.

The seven sites, operated out of Europe, purport to sell items including fabric, DVD cases, maps, gift wrap, mechanical tape, pin badges and flags. In fact, they are fake outlets, part of a multinational system to disguise payments for the $40 billion global online gambling industry, which is illegal in many countries and some U.S. states.

The findings raise questions about how e-commerce is policed worldwide. They also underline a strategy which fraud specialists say regulators, card issuers and banks have yet to tackle head-on.

The scheme found by Reuters involved websites which accepted payments for household items from a reporter but did not deliver any products. Instead, staff who answered helpdesk numbers on the sites said the outlets did not sell the product advertised, but that they were used to help process gambling payments, mostly for Americans.

Categorising a gambling transaction as a purchase of something else is against the rules of card issuers including Visa and Mastercard, the card companies said in response to Reuters' findings. indiatimes.com

How Porch Pirates Subtly Steer E-commerce
Fear of Theft Affects What Online Shoppers Buy, and How They Shop

For those who've never had the experience of being the victim of a backdoor buccaneer, it is quite simply when one orders a package online, sees the notice of a delivery, but when you get to the place on the porch where it is supposed to be - nothing. The pirates have pillaged, and whatever the consumer just ordered from Amazon is their booty.

It is easy to overlook the efforts of the lower tech thieves of the world. They lack bot armies, custom POS scraping software or cool names like Operation Deep Panda - or Vladimir Putin comparing their crimes to works of art. They probably don't even know what bitcoin is or that all the cool thieves are using it these days.

But, according to new data out from Shorr Packaging, perhaps porch pirates don't really need all those bells and whistles - even if all the other cyber thieves don't think they're cool.

And the fear of theft has an effect on consumers, what they will buy and how they will shop - thus impacting the online shopping ecosystem through and through.

The vast majority of respondents - 92 percent - noted that they prefer to get packages delivered to their home. Despite that preference, however, 35 percent noted they've had a package sent elsewhere due to concerns that the item would not be safe. Over half, 53 percent, noted that they had changed or arranged their plans around waiting for a package delivery, despite the fact that they didn't need to sign for it.

And fear of a theft doesn't just change what consumers do to receive their packages - it also influences what they by. Among respondents, 41 percent of respondents don't buy certain items online because they're afraid the packages will get stolen.

The number one item they avoid? Electronics - which tend to attract thieves like honey attracts flies - has 44 percent of respondents preferring to skip the delivery. Collectables, clothing and jewelry were also items to avoid. It should be noted, however, that a full third - 33 percent - are pretty much fearless and are unconcerned about ordering any good or category of good online. pymnts.com
