Cost of keeping America safe from lone wolves shifts to business
The people handling security for the nation's busiest malls and amusement parks
are no longer retired cops. They are a 24-year veteran of the FBI, a former CIA
operative and the one-time chief of counterterrorism for Scotland Yard. The
theme-park industry's annual security bill, already roughly $250 million a year,
is expected to grow by more than $100 million over the next few years, according
to one consultant. Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and SeaWorld all
installed metal detectors outside their gates for the first time last December.
"Lone wolf" shootings like those at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando earlier
this month, and in San Bernardino last December, have forced businesses to
shoulder more of the cost and responsibility of securing America against
American companies were already spending about $341 billion on security in 2014,
more than three times as much as they did in 1990, after adjusting for
inflation, according to ASIS International, a professional group for security
personnel. The group said that since 2013, companies have been spending about
10% more on security each year. Closed-circuit cameras alone have become an
$8-billion industry, about 17 times larger than it was two decades ago.
Inside the FBI's 'CSI'
Active-shooter terror attacks have forensic teams scrambling to adapt
Housed at each of the agency's 56 field offices, Evidence Response Teams (ERTs)
handle crime-scene processing and evidence collection for FBI investigations -
they are, in essence, the bureau's "CSI." The highly trained units, in many
cases, also deploy overseas to assist foreign authorities with complex
investigations or work scenes with a nexus to the United States.
ERTs work investigations ranging from public corruption to counterintelligence,
but in light of recent global events, the lion's share of the units' training
efforts have been centered on counterterrorism.
The mystery shopper scam that got one U.K. woman arrested
Schemers are targeting high school and college students who are looking for
part-time summer work with a new kind of mystery shopper job. The position is as
a "personal shoplifter."
We haven't seen the scam here in the U.S. -- yet -- but it was uncovered when a
woman in the U.K. answered a Facebook ad promoting a job website. When the woman
clicked on the job website, she was given a list of jobs, including one for a
"mystery shopper." She was then directed to a web site called "Mystery Shopping
UK," and after she applied for the job, she reportedly received a call from a
company rep. The rep explained the job.
The employee would visit stores from a list the firm would provide, and she'd
take specific items from the stores. Along the way, she was to take notes
about the cleanliness of the store, the appearance of staff, the number of
security guards and what they were doing. If she was able to walk out of the
store with the items, she was to put them in clearly labeled plastic bags and
ship them to the company. If she was caught, she was instructed not to reveal
that she was working for the company. Instead, she should go through the arrest
Back in the U.S., Michael Mershimer, president of MSPA-NA -- the group formerly
known as the Mystery Shopping Providers Association of North America -- said
the scam hasn't hit our shores yet. No legitimate company would have you steal
from their stores, Mershimer said. "Even to test security, this would be
huge risk and liability for a company," he said. "An interaction between store
security and a shoplifter can go bad quickly -- regardless of whether you are
screaming that you are just a mystery shopper. You are going to jail."
Hedge Fund Looks To Reboot Costco Suit Over Ponzi Scheme
Hedge fund Ritchie Capital on Friday asked the Second Circuit to vacate the
dismissal of its suit against Costco over the warehouse club's alleged
involvement in the $3.6 billion Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Tom Petters, saying
the lower court erred by finding the case didn't belong in New York.
Ritchie Capital Management LLC had accused Costco Wholesale Corp. of aiding and
abetting fraud and civil conspiracy on the grounds the wholesaler knew that
Petters was using counterfeit purchase orders to secure loans, nine years before
he was convicted on 20 counts of fraud, money laundering and other offenses in
While Amazon Waits, Drones Fly
When Amazon said in 2013 that it could soon deliver products by drone, skeptics
dismissed it as a publicity stunt. Never underestimate technology: For the first
time, drones this month delivered packages for retail customers. But not Amazon
drones. The packages, from Chinese retailer JD.com, made it to a remote area of
Jiangsu province. Amazon has built advanced drones, but it can't use them
because American regulators have made it a criminal offense for businesses to
use drones. Americans do use millions of drones, but almost all recreationally.
In 2012 Congress legalized hobbyists' use of drones provided it doesn't endanger
"the safety of the national airspace."
Last week's big news from the Federal Aviation Administration is that it will
finally decriminalize some commercial uses of drones. The new FAA rules could
have been adopted years ago, when the industry first asked permission from
bureaucrats. Instead they come 10 years after Congress instructed the FAA to
allow business use of drones. And they still ban many activities, including
deliveries. American innovators will fall further behind their peers in Asia and
Bigger ships heading for
Georgia - distribution center boom
ship COSCO Shipping Panama was scheduled to glide through the Panama Canal, and
into history, early Sunday morning. The vessel's journey heralds the
long-awaited expansion of the canal and the promise that ever-larger container
ships will revolutionize East Coast shipping much to Georgia's benefit. State
and U.S. taxpayers are betting $706 million - the cost of deepening the Savannah
River so larger ships can use it - on the hoped-for benefits of an expanded
canal. More cargo, revenue and jobs will come Georgia's way, backers say, with
metro Atlanta and its welter of warehouses and trucking terminals taking the
lion's share of new business.
Analysts Predict Economic Bounceback For 2nd Half of Year
The retail story this year is a tale of two halves. The first half was
characterized by markdowns and too much inventory. The second half is expected
to bounce back as inventories are right-sized and retailers continue to reap the
benefits of their e-commerce investments.
The fourth quarter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016 were both
disappointing, and some investors wonder if retailers' positive outlook for the
second half is wishful thinking borne of desperation. However, there are some
economic indicators that support the belief that the back of the year will be an
improvement over the first half, as buyers head out to trade shows and plan
IHS Economics predicts that gross domestic product growth will accelerate from
1.7 percent in the second quarter to 3.1 percent by year-end. IHS believes that
the recent pullback in consumer spending is temporary. The company expects real
consumer spending to stay at 3 percent for the remainder of the year, with
spending for nondurable goods to rise to 3.1 percent in the third quarter and
2.9 percent in the fourth quarter.
Brexit's ripple effect on already struggling luxury retailers
Things are about to get even tougher for struggling luxury retailers. The U.K.
vote to exit the European Union adds yet another wave of uncertainty to sales
and profits at the high end, which have already taken a beating due to a
stronger dollar, slowing economic growth and a shift toward spending on
experiences versus goods.
The British pound tumbled to a 30-year-low Friday, making high-end goods outside
of the region more costly. Global financial markets likewise dove, putting
pressure on the portfolios of wealthy shoppers, whose net worth is more directly
tied to market fluctuations. And with the euro simultaneously moving lower,
the Brexit is likely to create ripples on luxury brands' U.S. flagship stores,
which depend on tourists for a chunk of their sales. Foreign shoppers have
already cut back on spending in the U.S. because of the stronger dollar.
Winning Cannes ad uses real
Turns out security cameras and brazen
shoplifters gave birth to the top award film honored Saturday at the 63rd Cannes
Lions International Festival of Creativity. Widely considered as the Academy
Awards of the marketing and advertising world, Cannes Lions celebrates great
ideas in the communications industry. The annual awards show and week-long trade
event gathered more than 13,500 delegates from 90 countries this year in the
south of France. British department store Harvey Nichols' video that stars real
shoplifters to promote its loyalty app beat the other 2,800 entries in the film
category and won the Grand Prix award. It is "just a perfectly executed film,"
said Joe Alexander, jury president of the Film category and chief operating
officer at The Martin Agency.
Bar Code Birthday
On June 26, 1974, a 10-pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit gum was swiped over a

The EMV Migration Leads
to 'Cybercrime as a Service'
online and off have noted an increase in chargebacks since the U.S. moved to
microchip cards back in October.
The bad news is for online retailers. There's no comparative liability shift
available for them (unless their fraud prevention provider offers a full
chargeback guarantee, which can serve a similar purpose) and as fraud gets
harder in the physical world, more and more will move to the virtual one.
All of this is supported by what has developed into a highly sophisticated
online criminal ecosystem. You could think of it as "cybercrime as a service."
This trend has already started. The Global Fraud Attack
Index found that online fraud attempts increased an astonishing 215% in
2015. During the crucial final quarter when fraud rates usually dip (because
there are so many genuine orders being placed for the holidays, without a
balancing increase in the number of fraudulent ones) in 2015 it actually
Home Depot Alleges Visa, MasterCard Colluded To Delay Chip-and-PIN
Implementation; Exposed Retailers, Consumers to Data Breach Risks
A recent bombshell lawsuit by The Home Depot alleges patterns of antitrust
violations, illegal collusion, and anti-competitive conduct by the Visa and
MasterCard credit card networks. The suit arises in a climate in which the
networks are increasingly under attack by retailers, and in which The Home Depot
is embroiled in extensive litigation stemming from a massive 2014 breach of
customer data. Finally, for consumers concerned with payment card security, the
suit highlights potential weaknesses in some U.S. payment card technologies -
particularly when compared to systems widely used overseas.
Seven tips on keeping your phone safe while traveling
"When you're traveling, you may do some things differently than you'd do at
home," said Michael Kaiser, executive director for the National Cyber Security
Alliance. For instance, Kaiser said you might be tempted to use an unprotected
Wi-Fi network to save on roaming charges if you're traveling abroad. And you may
not consider the risks of sharing your location via apps or pictures you post on
Here's a summary of the tips most relevant to mobile devices to help ensure you
don't become a victim of cybercrime while on vacation or business travel:
1. Clean up your device.
2. Turn on password or biometric protection.
3. Turn off location tracking on apps and manage privacy settings.
4. Backup your data.
5. Beware of public Wi-Fi hotspots.
6. Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when you're not using it.
7. Turn on "find-my-phone" and remote wiping.

Alibaba's Jack Ma can't
stop talking about fakes
Jack Ma said Alibaba
Group Holding Ltd. has "zero tolerance" for counterfeits, repeating a
message that has so far failed to quell criticisms of its e-commerce
platforms Tmall and Taobao as havens for knock-offs. Brands and intellectual
property must be protected and counterfeits are unacceptable, Ma said in an
opinion piece published by the Wall Street Journal. He used the opportunity
to clarify comments he made to shareholders earlier this month, when he said
Chinese-made counterfeit goods today have gotten better than genuine
products. Ma said the comments were taken out of context.
exports declining due to weaker demand, Chinese manufacturers are resorting
to the internet and setting up their own brands to woo customers, presenting
a challenge to the business model of some established labels, Ma wrote in
the Journal. This has complicated efforts to root out fakes, which is why
Alibaba is using real-time scanning of over 10 million new product listings
a day, said Ma. "Failing to protect original designs, trademarks and
technology is akin to thievery, and it is detrimental not only to innovation
but also to the integrity of the marketplace," Ma said. "We do not and will
never condone any act of stealing."
Counterfeits account for 1.5% of China's GDP
China and Hong Kong were the source of 86 per cent of counterfeits
intercepted in the US, Europe and Japan between 2010 and 2014, according to
the US government.
All told, 72 per cent of counterfeits came from China - equivalent to $285bn
out of a worldwide physical counterfeit trade value of $461bn, says the US
Chamber of Commerce's Global Intellectual Property Center (GIPC). Hong Kong
accounted for 14 per cent, about the same as the rest of the world put together.
GIPC report says that represents that 12.5 per cent of China's exports, and
1.5 per cent of its GDP, and suggests that - despite China's efforts to tackle
physical counterfeiting and intellectual property (IP) related crime - the
country still has a massive problem.
Deloitte Finds Ecommerce
Isn't Causing Retail Volatility
retailers why some well-known brands such as Ulta and Zara are flourishing,
and others - like Aeropostale and Sports Authority -- are going broke, and
they'll likely say it comes down to e-commerce versus brick-and-mortar
stores. And they'll probably also blame the domination of big brands, such
as Amazon and Walmart.
But a new study from Deloitte shows that the
industry's astonishing rise in volatility - up 250% since 2010, with $200
billion up for grabs-has little to do with channels, and everything to do
It's also important to point out that plenty of
big brick-and-mortar retailers are already winning at e-commerce, with 16 of
the top 25 reporting robust sales growth. Between 2010 and 2015, Deloitte
says, this group increased e-commerce sales nearly 21%, compared with 15%
growth in the overall market.

Francisco, CA: $500,000 In Jewelry Stolen In Overnight Heist
Two men who walked into a jewelry store near San Francisco Union Square made
off with half a million dollars in merchandise, according to police. The
burglary happened at 3:44 a.m. Thursday at a jewelry store on the 100 block
of O'Farrell Street near Union Square. Security images showed two suspects
coming into the store and loading up a duffel bag with merchandise. Police
said the value of the stolen items was $500,000. The suspects used a Ford
sedan during the heist, police said. Police did not say exactly how the
burglars gained entrance to the store. One of the suspects is a black man
with dreadlocked hair, wearing a dark jacket, tan pants and white shoes. The
second suspect was only described as a black man with a dark-colored
"hoodie" pulled up over his head.
Amherst, NY: 400 iPads
stolen from Best Buy store, Thieves make off with over $90,000 worth of
Amherst Police say thieves stole
400 iPads from a Best Buy store on Niagara Falls Boulevard. Best Buy
employees discovered the break-in when they showed up for their shifts
around 6:30 Friday morning. Amherst Police Detective Lieutenant Rick Walter
says the crime was very well planned out and very well orchestrated. "The
suspects actually used a high lift type vehicle referred to as a sky lift
which lifts workers to higher places. It was being used at a construction
site close to Best Buy to get themselves onto the roof," says Walter. From
there, Walter says the thieves cut through the roof, then used a ladder to
get into the store. Once there, they stole 400 iPads valued at more than
$90,000. He says the criminals likely cased the store and were inside up to
an hour during the theft. "We don't feel it's an inside job at all. What we
feel is it was very well planned, as a matter of fact, we're conferring with
police departments in Erie, Pennsylvania. I just recently found out also
that Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania also had a very similar crime at a Best Buy.
So we feel at this point that all three may possibly be related," says

Orem, UT: Suspected thief lifts pawned jewelry
to sell at another pawn shop
police arrested a Provo man on suspicion of third-degree felony of retail
theft from a pawnshop on Friday. Alex Ty Brereton, 19, was suspected of
selling the stolen items to another pawnshop, according to police reports.
Employees at Good Guys Pawn on South State Street informed the reporting
officer that Brereton had been in the store each of the last three days and
stolen items from the store on each occasion. They showed the officer video
surveillance reportedly depicting Brereton reaching behind a cabinet and
opening the case before taking a ring out of the case. As the employees were
calling police Friday, the suspect reportedly stole a ring in the same
manner as the day before. After the officer spoke with the suspect, he
reportedly admitted to taking both rings, one Friday and one Thursday.
Brereton showed officers where he had hidden the $1,487 ring taken Friday
and the ring was returned to the business. The first ring taken Thursday was
valued at $1,800 and pawned for $260 at another business in Orem, according
to the report.

ME: 4 Arrested after Shots Fired at Augusta Walmart
Two people exchanged gunfire Sunday outside the Walmart in Augusta, leading
to four arrests, police said. Nobody was hurt in the altercation in the

identified, started shooting at the occupants of another car, which resulted
in return gunfire. Police arrested Kwiesha "Reggie" McBride, of New York
City; Frankie Dejesus, of Rochester, NY; Diana Davis, of Rochester, NY; and
Samantha Tupper, of Augusta. The suspect's roles in the incident were not
specified Sunday night. As many as six people may have been involved, police
said. "When the shooting stopped one suspect exited their vehicle to
confront the occupants of the other vehicle," police said in a news release.
"At this time the incident was stopped by two bystanders who had watched the
incident unfold. No one was injured during the incident and medical
assistance was denied." A customer told WMTW News 8 that the store had been

stole almost $10,000 in gift cards and merchandise from the store. Police
were notified in March by a loss prevention officer with the store in Post
Oak Mall that Jasmine Shivers was suspected of stealing from the store since
December. Loss prevention officers noticed she had been using the store's
computer system to issue gift cards in exchange for returned items. However,
the "returned items" were actually products selected by people Shivers knew,
who would bring things to the counter for Shivers to process. Authorities
say over a span of four months, Shivers stole $9,188 in gift cards and

When you think you've got your job mastered think again. That's usually when
something bad happens in ones career or company. If you reach that point,
and most everyone does, its time to re-evaluate everything you're doing. Go
on the hunt for new technology, new ideas, rewrite your program, take a
fresh look at every aspect of your department and maybe even bring in a
consultant you don't know or have ties to. Someone who will challenge you
and debate with you, and won't be there to merely confirm what you're doing
and agree with your approach. But someone who will test you and force you to
grow someone who you may even be uncomfortable with. Get out of your comfort
zone and have some fun!
