Cargo theft firms,
CargoNet and FreightWatch International, issue warnings ahead of July 4
Cargo theft firms CargoNet and
FreightWatch International have released warnings and recommendations ahead
of the July 4 holiday weekend.
CargoNet said between July 2 and July 9 from 2012 to 2015, truckloads of
non-alcoholic beverages, major appliances and copper were some of the most
popular thefts. With July 4 falling on a Monday this year, CargoNet warns
thefts could be worse than normal.
"Cargo theft has always spiked
during holiday weekends, but we expect a particularly bad July 4th since it
falls on Monday," the firm said in its warning. "Many truckers will park
their trucks on Thursday or Friday and will not check on them again until
To protect against cargo theft, CargoNet suggests truckers
avoiding high-theft metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort
Worth, Atlanta and Miami, and by parking in high-security locations with
security services, secure fences and good lighting. FreightWatch recommends
as little downtime as possible and lining up schedules with shippers and
receivers during the holiday weekend.
The top five targeted states,
according to CargoNet, have been California, Texas, Florida, Georgia and
Dick's Wins Ch. 11
Auction For Sports Authority IP
Sporting Goods Inc. submitted the winning bid for Sports Authority Inc.'s
intellectual property and more than two dozen of the bankrupt sports
retailer's leases, according to court papers filed Thursday in Delaware.
It was not immediately clear how much Dick's agreed to pay for the IP,
though the Wall Street Journal, citing anonymous sources, said the company's
bid was for $15 million. The winning bid was announced days after Sports
Authority's attorneys told a Delaware bankruptcy judge that it expected the
auction for its assets to be competitive.
CVS To Pay $3.5M For
Filling 500 Forged Prescriptions
will pay $3.5 million to resolve allegations that its pharmacists in
Massachusetts ignored red flags and filled 500 forged prescriptions for
drugs including addictive painkillers from 2011 to 2014, U.S. Attorney
Carmen Ortiz and Drug Enforcement Agency Special Agent in Charge Michael J.
Ferguson said Thursday.
The settlement, one of the largest of its
kind, comes amid a "devastating" opioid epidemic in the commonwealth of
Massachusetts spurred in part by prescription painkillers, Ortiz said. The
forged prescriptions, filled at 50 stores, had a street value of $1 million,
As described by Ortiz's office, some of the forged
prescriptions weren't exactly the result of sophisticated capers, and they
were traced to just a few people.
One person was able to get 56
prescriptions of the opioid oxycodone from CVS pharmacies even though she'd
been banned from CVS in the past. That person got around the ban by opening
a new account using her own driver's license number but putting down a
different last name.
Cinemark Bills Aurora
Shooting Victims for $700,000
The owners of
the Aurora, Colorado, theater where 12 moviegoers were killed in a shooting
in 2012 want nearly $700,000 from survivors and families of the victims.
According to the Denver Post, lawyers for Cinemark filed a "bill of costs"
for $699,187.13 earlier this month in Arapahoe County District Court for
fees associated with a lawsuit filed by more than 20 survivors and parents
of those murdered that was eventually won by the theater chain. The
plaintiffs contended that the Century 16 theater where shooter James Holmes
opened fire during a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" was inadequately
equipped. Specifically, they claimed that the exit door used by Holmes to
gain entrance to the theater should have had an alarm. They also asserted
that a lack of armed guards and gaps in security camera coverage aided the
Uncovers Organized Fraud Rings
said this week it has been granted a U.S. patent on technology that is able
to identify fraud rings. The patented technology works by identifying groups
of likely fraudsters and looking for connections between them (e.g., sharing
of physical address, phone number or email; the same Social Security number
coming out of multiple addresses, etc.). The more connections the system
finds, the more likely they are to be working together to perpetrate fraud.
While individual instances of fraud tend to originate in urban or populated
areas, fraud rings seem to be based in more rural areas. Perhaps, Coggeshall
surmised, because they "are able to operate systematically with less
detection" in these areas. From a consumer and enterprise perspective, the
technology also can make a difference. Being able to identify an individual
as part of a fraud ring makes scoring discrete transactions for risk more
accurate, according to Coggeshall.
From Stores to the
Stars, Retail is Retail
The headlines are
clichés: the death of retail, the death of the department store, the death
of the shopping mall. But don't let headlines fool you - retail is bigger
than ever. The biggest thing the obituaries have in common is that they are
Retail is our nation's largest private employer,
supporting 42 million jobs, employing one in four Americans and generating
20 percent of gross domestic product. In the last four years, retail
employment has grown by half a million jobs and is expected to grow by
nearly another million by 2022.
So why the persistent headlines? The
answer is that headline writers haven't kept up with retail.
has always been dynamic, adapting to changes in taste, style and technology
not to just meet but to exceed customers' expectations. And that has never
been truer. The most visible changes have come in digital retail - the
e-commerce and mobile shopping that gives consumers unlimited freedom to
browse, buy and have products delivered with just a click. But online isn't
driving bricks-and-mortar retailers out of business. Instead, most major
retailers today are multichannel, using the strengths of each channel to
make the whole sector stronger. Some are closing stores as more of their
business moves online, and some local boutiques are using digital to reach
more customers. Pure-play retailers are adding bricks to their clicks and
opening stores. Time and time again, retailers of all sizes and styles are
finding a new balance.
12 Major Retailers
Closing Stores Like Crazy
dominance-bolstered by mostly lower prices, more options and increased
convenience for shoppers-has caused stores across the mall to take a hit.
Teen-apparel retailer Aéropostale filed for bankruptcy in May. Later that
month, JC Penney announced that it would cut payroll and freeze overtime for
its employees. The bad news isn't only recent: In 2015, Penney announced it
would close 40 locations, while fellow mall giant Sears has shuttered more
than 200 locations over the past two years.
These are some of the
most prominent brick-and-mortar stores suffering from a retail slump:
• JC Penney
• Sports Authority
• Office Depot
• Barnes & Noble
• American Eagle
• The Children's Place

JackThreads thrives on new model that lets shoppers try before buying
Men's online apparel retailer JackThreads has hit upon a formula that - although
in its early days - seems to be working: try first, and pay later. Through
JackThreads' TryOuts, which it launched last month, shoppers can choose items to
try on, paying nothing up front. They simply try on at home for free, take a
week to decide what to keep, and pay only for what works, sending back the rest.
Shipping is free in both directions.
Study: Back-to-school forecast looks sunny
According to a study Yahoo conducted with Ipsos Connect, "Back-to-school
Back-to-college Shoppers April 2016," the average back-to-school and
back-to-college shopper plans to spend 37% more in 2016 compared to 2015 ($470
compared to $343). And back-to-school shoppers are not only parents. Students
younger than 18 spend an average of $273 per year on back-to-school supplies,
and one in two back-to-school shoppers is buying goods for someone other than
themselves or their own children.
Survey: How to compete against Amazon for holiday sales
Although Amazon poses a major holiday sales threat, there are steps retailers
can take to produce a merry season. According to a new survey of 1,500 U.S.
consumers by marketing platform provider Signal, 42% of respondents said Amazon
will be their primary holiday gift destination. One finding that suggests there
is room to compete against Amazon is that 40% of respondents said they primarily
shop elsewhere for holiday gifts. Another result that gives Amazon competitors
hope is that while the primary way holiday shoppers browse for gifts is on a
desktop/laptop (36%), the most frequent way consumers purchase gifts is

How the internet of
things is revolutionizing retail
technologies offer an almost endless capacity for transforming the retail
consumer experience, says Nayaki Nayyar, general manager and global head of
IoT and Innovation Go to Market at SAP.
In addition to potentially
revolutionizing customer-facing applications, IoT technologies may play a
big role in retail supply chain and delivery operations. Not only will IoT
technology allow for better visibility, such as identifying within a
10-minute timeframe when goods will be delivered, it can also aid in loss
prevention and be used to measure the impact of environmental factors, such
as heat, on goods moving through the supply chain, he explains. Damages to
goods can be recorded with the exact time and location of the damage,
providing an audit trail to identify the responsible party, he says.
Automating and optimizing the supply chain is one of the key uses of IoT
among retailers, adds Nayyar.
The retail industry is at the
beginning of the IoT journey, says Nayyar. And the important thing for
merchants to recognize at this point is that the IoT isn't just about
sensors and connectivity - it's really about business outcomes, such as
creating new customer experiences, revenue streams and business models.
Resold hard drives on eBay, Craigslist are often still ripe with leftover data
Before you throw away that old hard drive, make sure you purge the memory clean.
A new study has found that most users are accidentally giving up photos, social
security numbers and financial data, by failing to properly delete the files on
their recycled hard drives.
78 percent of the drives contained residual data that could be recovered. Over
half of the drives, at 67 percent, still held personal files, such as photos
with location indicators, resumes and financial data. If fallen into the wrong
hands, the data could be used for identity theft and fraud, the company warned.
11 percent of the drives also contained company data, such as emails,
spreadsheets and customer information.
Executives Struggle With Software Risk
The pervasive use of software throughout all aspects of business has added
another layer of risk to the corporate equation, as compliance, IT and the
C-suite, among others, try to put in place controls and procedures to minimize
risks and keep data secure.
Along with security issues, risks with software include compatibility with other
software, applications, devices and computer networks, cost considerations,
resiliency and regulatory compliance.
Complicating matters, though, is the lack of clear ownership of the issue by one
segment of the business and the lack of technical expertise among compliance
officers that they would need to take charge, said Lev Lesokhin, head of
strategy and analytics at CAST, a software analysis and measurement company.
"The issue is becoming more and more technical but the people who control it are
not," he said.
FBI Flash Alerts: How Can They Be Improved?
In recent months, the FBI has been more frequently issuing "flash alerts" about
emerging cyber threats because it wants to "get information out as fast as
possible," says Dan Wierzbicki, an FBI special agent in Chicago. Wierzbicki
acknowledges some of these alerts, such as one about ways to mitigate risks
associated with CEO fraud, have been criticized by some security experts as
lacking in appropriate detail, and he welcomes feedback. "Companies that are
seeing this [cyber threat] activity ... might have different suggestions or
better suggestions than what we provide," he says.

93% of customers rated the LM Tag's effectiveness above a 5, indicating they
think the LM Tag is effective at preventing theft.
90% of the associates surveyed agreed that they like the LM Tag and that it is
easy to apply.
In this study, all 7 shoplifters indicated they would not attempt to steal a

AB: Man shot in failed Temple liquor store robbery attempt
Birk, who owns Global Liquor in Temple, says he was getting ready
to close up his shop Friday just before midnight when two men came into the
store. One of the men tried to distract Birk while the other tried to stuff a
bottle down his pants.
As they attempted to flee, the men got trapped
between the two exit doors which had been locked by Birk. That's when the man
with the gun, who looked panicked in the surveillance video, opened fire. One
shot hit Birk in the arm, and three more shots were fired to break open the door
and escape. The shot, which hit him in the arm,
missed an artery by just one centimetre.
Day fireworks worth $13,000 stolen from plaza in northwest London
fireworks vendor lost nearly half his inventory in a break-in leading up to
Canada Day, the busiest week in the business. More than $13,000 worth of
fireworks were looted from a storage container at a northwest London plaza,
leaving owner Moe Hamid fuming. Someone forced their way into the six-metre
metal unit that serves as an impromptu shop by cutting the lock's hinges, said
Hamid, adding most of the stolen fireworks were the high-ticket pyrotechnics,
costing between $60 to $100 apiece. But it's not just the bottom line that
Hamid's worried about. Many of the nicked fireworks pack the most powerful
explosions allowed for recreational use, he said.
Montreal, QC: RCMP busts counterfeit money ring
worth over $20,000
Five people were arrested in Montreal Wednesday in connection
with a counterfeit-money operation, the RCMP said. More than $20,000 in fake
credit cards, cash and money-making machinery was seized during two raids.
Montreal police aided in the operation. The investigation, which was launched in
2014, also led investigators to a laboratory used for making currency. Phoney
banknotes in various stages of completion in denominations ranging from $20 to
$100 bills were seized.

Richardson François, 31, received the sentence Wednesday afternoon during a
hearing at the Montreal courthouse. Quebec Court Judge Hélène Morin mentioned
the fact that François remains heavily scarred by the nitric acid that was
tossed in his face in January 2013. But she did not list it as a mitigating
factor when she explained how she reached the 12-year sentence. The Crown had
asked for a 14-year sentence and Morin said she decided on 12 years because
François had pleaded guilty to the armed robbery in the Park Extension
neighborhood, another robbery committed at a jewelry store in October 2012.

According to the latest
E-commerce Quarterly Report from marketing platform provider Monetate
(covering the first quarter of 2016), only 42% of all online purchases
happen in the first 60 minutes following a shopper's first visit to a
website. An additional 9% of all online purchases happen in the six hours
immediately following those first 60 minutes. Another 16% happen roughly one
day after a shopper first visited a site, 28% happen between 26 and 41 hours
after a first site visit, and. 5% of all purchases happen nearly two days
after a shopper first visited a site.
The study also finds that
despite the proliferation of consumer mobile devices, the desktop is still
completely dominant in e-commerce. Ninety percent of all e-commerce
consumers used a desktop to begin shopping online, and 91% completed their
purchase on a desktop.
Overall online shopper engagement peaks
between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., suggesting that a lot of e-commerce activity
happens during work hours. U.S. e-commerce conversion rate for the quarter
was 3.02%, on track with the global 3.01% conversion rate.

crews out of Toledo were arrested, as well as several local residents. "During the two-day blitz, we issued 24 misdemeanor charges and eight
felonies, and recovered several thousands of dollars in merchandise," said
Perkins police Detective Joe Rotuno. On June 23 and 24, multiple law
enforcement agencies joined with Perkins police, and saturated the U.S. 250

We've all got great ideas and plans. The problem lies in putting them
together, rolling them out and maximizing speed to market. Making it happen
quickly and efficiently - that's the key to success. The first obstacle is
always fear of risk. Making an idea a reality requires risk taking and
sometimes you've just got to make it happen if your inner self, or the bird
on your shoulder, tells you it's the right thing to do. I was writing this
e-newsletter for a year before one morning in 2010, on March 25, I walked in
and just said hey we're doing it. Yes, I was absolutely fearful of all the
critics and naysayers, but I took the risk and made it happen. There will
always be torpedoes in the water and sometimes they hit. But to make things
happen you've got to jump in the water and swim as fast as you can.
