Other findings include what services retailers are using, why they’re conducting background checks, and more. To request your copy of the report, click here.

Kellogg’s rep pleads guilty to defrauding Supervalu - Claims co-conspirator was President - Split nearly $1.9M in reimbursements  Former Kellogg’s sales manager has pled guilty to a scheme by which he defrauded his employer and supplier Supervalu by filing phony deal sheets on behalf of a conspiring grocery retailer. The salesman, John Morrell Palmer III, faces up to 20 years in prison for the scam, which resulted in the retailer receiving nearly $1.9 million in reimbursements for transactions that never took place between 2009 and 2013. The grocery retailer, which federal lawmakers did not disclose, operates grocery stores around Richmond and elsewhere in Virginia. Authorities said Palmer’s unindicted co-conspirator was the president of the retailer. Palmer told investigators that his co-conspirator proposed the scheme to split proceeds from deductions for transactions that did not take place, and afterward arranged meetings in parking lots of the retailer’s stores to pay Palmer in cash. Palmer subsequently agreed to cooperate with authorities investigating the retailer and on Aug. 5 last year arranged an exchange between his co-conspirator at a grocery store parking lot while being monitored by law enforcement officers. Palmer pled guilty to a single count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and has agreed to cooperate with authorities further investigating the incidents. A Supervalu spokesman said the company was cooperating fully in the investigation. (Source supermarketnews.com)

American Apparel and Investors in Reported Deal on Retailer’s Future - Fired CEO investigation ongoing  The Dov Charney, the company's founder who was fired recently, the retailer and the New York investment firm Standard General have agreed on the terms of the deal, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. No documents have yet been signed. Mr. Charney had to essentially relinquish his right to vote his shares. Mr. Charney struck this deal, signing away his power, because he had few options and because he was afraid of the alternatives that were circling his weakened company. Whether Mr. Charney will stay or go depends on the outcome of an investigation the board began into his personal and professional conduct. Once the investigation is complete, the new board will decide what role, if any, he should have at the company, according to people with knowledge of the situation. (Source nytimes.com)

Amazon sued by retailer over counterfeit allegations
Amazon and Apple are facing a legal challenge from an electronics retailer accused of selling counterfeit goods. Hard 2 Find Accessories (H2FA) claims Amazon wrongly took down its product listings, at Apple’s request, causing it to lose more than $180,000 a month and effectively shutting its business down. It also says the allegations of trading in counterfeits amounts to defamation. Apple said that the products being sold were believed to be counterfeit because they were priced at a steep discount, while customer reviews suggested that they may not be genuine. "Upon information and belief, Apple and Apple’s agents relied on anonymous Internet postings from the above-referenced customers in order to execute its takedown," it says.

Cyber Criminals Getting the Mob Treatment - Prosecutors applying RICO Act to Russian Kingpin Hacker and other alleged credit-card thieves  Federal prosecutors are using mob-busting tactics to catch and disrupt online crooks, applying a law written to dismantle Mafia families to pursue loose affiliations of thieves scattered around the world. The capacity of hackers and thieves to steal millions of dollars—in part through online marketplaces on which they can trade stolen credit-card numbers—is prompting concern among prosecutors. Law-enforcement officials worry these virtual networks pose a greater threat than many other criminal enterprises because they transcend international borders and can hatch far larger thefts. In the first prosecution of its kind, the Justice Department is arguing the individuals using a website to buy and sell stolen credit-card numbers broke the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. The RICO law, originally used to bring down crime families, is now being utilized against hackers who in many cases have never met and don't know each other's real names. Monday, a judge in Seattle unsealed an indictment against Roman Seleznev, a 30-year-old Russian who, along with co-conspirators, allegedly made $2 million in three months selling credit-card numbers stolen from businesses ranging from a Seattle restaurant to the Phoenix Zoo. Mr. Seleznev allegedly sold some of the stolen card numbers for $20 on Carder.su, a marketplace whose members are the target of the first-ever RICO prosecution of alleged cybercriminals.

Vermont Attorney General fines country store $3,000 for failing to notify consumers of security breach  Shelburne Country Store in Shelburne, Vermont, will pay a $3000 civil penalty for failing to inform 721 internet buyers of a security breach of their credit card information. In late 2013, the company’s website was hacked and credit card information stolen. Upon being informed of the breach in January 2014, the company quickly fixed the problem, but did not notify consumers until it was contacted by the Attorney General’s Office. “At this stage of the game, having seen widely reported data breaches at big retailers like Target and dozens of others, we will not accept the excuse that a business did not know of its obligations to report a breach. ” said Attorney General Sorrell. (Source vermontbiz.com)

Companies lose $3.5 million on average per data breach - $145 lost per compromised record  Information security today is seriously big business. While cybercriminals are making hay on the black market with stolen identities and records, cybersecurity breaches are also clearly costing companies much more than before. According to the Ponemon Institute's recent annual report, the cost of a data breach rose to $3.5 million in 2013. Companies lose an average of $145 per compromised record, according to annual Cost of Data Breach Study, while the average cost of a data breach rose 15% last year to $3.5 million. Anyone that still dismisses information security as just an IT issue is delusional. Just the simple mention of the leading US retailer Target should send shivers down the spines of CEOs everywhere. A total of 70 million records stolen that included the name, address, email address and phone number of Target shoppers. The cost to credit unions and financial institutions for reissuing the 21.8 million cards is estimated at $200 million, plus $100 million for Target to upgrade systems and payment terminals.

The next revolution in online retailing
What if you could replicate the physical in-store experience on the web? The concept sounds incredibly powerful. Retailers could connect product experts with key audiences to demonstrate and sell physical products, just like in-store. Surprisingly, creating just such a live interactive product experience via the web is starting to happen. Some retailers and brands are building their own microsites for this; others are tapping vendors that offer these features as part of a branded platform. Other retailers and brands are using these live web-based events to sell products ranging from high-end boats and outdoor cameras to slow cookers and canning jars. But they’re not just selling the product, they’re selling the experience — the chance to examine products, interact with product experts, and even socialize with like-minded folks in real-time. And the more that experience is a reflection of the brand’s spirit, the stronger the customer connection. (Source retailingtoday.com)

PayPal report cites security fears as annoyance in mobile payments
Consumers continue to resist mobile payments as concerns over data security loom large in ecommerce transactions, according to a new global survey from digital-payments platform PayPal. While 78 percent of respondents said paying online is easy, a full 42 percent said they do not use mobile devices for payment. The survey, which polled 15,105 adult banked consumers in 15 countries, also found that Americans felt much more secure about sharing financial data online than consumers in many other countries. “The study shows that only 29% of the U.S. worries about sharing their data online, versus the global average of 59%, which shows how accustomed Americans have grown to the layers of security and the buyer protection companies like PayPal and others have built into the e-commerce experience, and how comfortable they feel as a result,” said Anuj Nayar, senior director of global initiatives at PayPal.

Large-Scale Fencing Operation Busted in Chicago

Walgreens and CVS investigators work with Chicago-area Law Enforcement to Recover $19,000 in Stolen Retail Goods  Three Chicago men have been caught after a one-month investigation, resulting in the recovery of approximately $19,000 worth of stolen retail property, and the seizure of $14,000 USC and 5 vehicles. After a one month investigation, three search warrants were simultaneously executed on July 1 at two locations in Chicago and one in Oak Lawn. The investigation involved the combined efforts of the River Forest Police Department, the Chicago Police Department, the Porter County Sheriff’s Office (Indiana), the Cook County Regional Organized Crime Task Force, the Cook County State Attorneys Office, Walgreens Organized Crime Task Force and CVS Regional Crime Investigations. The investigation was initiated by River Forest Police after a Retail Theft offender provided information on a large scale fencing operation in Chicago. The fencing operation would purchase stolen retail merchandise for approximately 10 cents on the dollar. Further investigation revealed that some merchandise was resold in the Chicago region, while tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of stolen products was shipped to at least two locations in New York on a weekly basis. Also, records were located that indicated that some money netted from the sale of the stolen property was electronically transferred to the country of Jordon.

UK: Southampton 'highly organized' eBay gang sentenced  The gang from Southampton and Eastleigh, were involved in a conspiracy to shoplift from Homebase and B&Q stores in 13 counties. They are believed to have made more than $428,000 selling items such as showers, bathroom fittings and vacuum cleaners online. Six men and four women were jailed. Two others avoided jail. The orchestrator of the thefts George Mason, who was sentenced to five years in prison, was described by the Judge Peter Blair QC as "an arrogant, boastful, 31-year-old who appears to think he was untouchable". The court heard he had 14 previous convictions for theft. (Source bbc.com)

Kroger /Fred Meyer Investigators teams up with the Richland Police and Tri-City Metro Task Force bringing down an International ORC ring  A Pasco man pleaded innocent Tuesday to charges he has been fencing stolen goods for years to resell in a Mexico store. Fernando Cano allegedly placed large orders with people for merchandise -- like Levi's 501 jeans, boots, yard tools and gift cards -- and paid substantially less than the retail value during exchanges in the alley behind his home. Cano's arrest in June came after a two-month investigation by the Richland, WA police Street Crimes Unit and Tri-City Metro Drug Task Force into an area retail theft ring. A search of his home and an outdoor shed turned up dozens of pairs of jeans, money orders and shipping receipts to Mexico, a ledger detailing transactions and $42,000 cash. On April 23, Richland Police Officer Jeff Bickford met with another confidential informant who admitted stealing and subsequently selling an estimated 150 to 200 pairs of men's Levi's to Cano, along with weed whackers, tools and chainsaws. The informant reported receiving $13 to $14 per pair, adding that Cano only buys the jeans in quantities of 10 or more. Richland police contacted Kroger, the parent company of Fred Meyer, and arranged to get property to sell while undercover. The store in late May provided officers with 20 pairs of jeans inside a tote bin for a total value of almost $1,000. The plastic security tags were removed from the jeans but the store tags remained intact, which officers then marked with an ultraviolet pen to help identify if the merchandise was later recovered.

Jefferson County, CO Grand Jury indicts 9 in ID theft ring
Nine people have been indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury as suspects in an identity theft ring. The 165-count indictment centers on five women and four men who allegedly used ill-gotten gains to buy methamphetamine and other illegal drugs, according to a Jefferson County District Attorney's Office news release. Members of the alleged ring would steal personal and financial information of people and businesses and use it to create fraudulent checks and identifications, including bogus driver's licenses and state ID cards. The ring would used fraudulent checks to obtain cash, merchandise, personal property, services, gift cards, food and other items. Investigators suspect some of the stolen personal and financial information was taken from mailboxes and cars. Angela Vigil and Sean Wyles are suspected of being the ringleaders and are charged with numerous counts, including racketeering and Violation of Colorado's Organized Crime Control Act.

When anyone goes for an interview you’ve got to play to win. You should not allow: any outside variable, any future promotion thoughts or promises, your guilt feelings towards your current employer or boss, your preconceived opinions of the possible future employer, or any miss-step in the process on the part of the future employer disrupt or impact your performance

All interviews have long range implications on your career. The executives interviewing you are part of a community and you'll run into them again at another company. So if you do get involved and go for an interview, commit yourself all the way and play to win. It doesn’t mean you’ve got to take the job. It just means you have to perform at 100%.
