Delaware County, Ohio Goes Live with Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP)
County is first in state to implement faster emergency
PITTSBURGH, July 21, 2016 -
Delaware County, Ohio is the latest municipality to go live with
Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP), a technology that automates
communication between alarm monitoring central stations and 911 centers,
resulting in improved accuracy and speed of emergency response.
Transmitting data electronically speeds up alarm notification delivery and
reduces the number of phone calls and processing time. It also eliminates human
error or miscommunication between operators; all pertinent data goes directly to
first responders within seconds.
In cities where it is used, ASAP delivers alarm notification information from
central stations directly to public safety answering points (PSAPs) via computer
rather than by phone, eliminating the need for communication between monitoring
center operators and 911 operators.
"We are proud to be the first agency in Ohio to implement ASAP," said Patrick
Brandt, Director of Delaware County Emergency Communications. "Our County
recognizes the benefits ASAP will bring in terms of better protecting our
communities and looks forward to seeing successes early on in this rollout."
ASAP was created in partnership with the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA)
and the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO), with
Vector Security President and CEO Pam Petrow co-chairing the steering committee.
Vector Security was the first alarm company to use ASAP in the City of Richmond,
VA in 2012. Vector Security helped bring Delaware County online with extensive
testing during the conversion.

Zara accused of stealing

Meat theft: Playing a high
Shoplifters are making off with proteins by the pound. Some blame
high prices, others lax policing and increasingly brazen, organized thieves. No
matter the reason, meat theft is likely costing you thousands.
Can technology help? In theory, yes.
But in practice, many anti-theft devices don't always deter thieves. "Technology
has not yet come up with an affordable solution for retailers," says Florent
Gravel, president of the Association des détaillants en alimentation du Quebec,
the province's food retailers association. In Quebec, stores are losing 1% of
annual sales to shoplifters, or about $600 million annually, and it's climbing.
A big problem with anti-theft
devices: return on investment, says Jim Bexis, owner of Sun Valley Market, in
Scarborough, Ont. Bexis installed gates that shut when cash lanes are closed.
Still, he and his football player son find themselves having to corner thieves.
"If you don't stand your ground, they walk all over you," he says. "That's
the ugly part of the job."
go-to technology to stymie meat thieves has traditionally been electronic
article surveillance tags, also called EAS or smart tags, embedded in labels.
"It's not foolproof but it works," says Bruno Menard, who operates five IGAs in
Montreal. He uses the tags on items priced more than $20, mostly meats, seafood
and fine cheese.
problem with such tags is they have to be applied by staff, a time-consuming
task at a busy meat counter moving 2,000 items a day. Another solution: tiny
disposable tags hidden underneath meat on the Styrofoam tray or embedded in
soaker pads that the butcher puts between the meat and the tray. Each tag costs
roughly 3.5 to 12 cents, but the price doesn't result in sufficient savings to
justify the system's overall $15,000 to $20,000 investment, Gravel says.
Some stores have turned to
dummy tags. These tags won't set off an alarm, nor will they deter pro thieves.
But they can stop impulse shoplifting. And the tags cost significantly less than
the real thing.
alternative: anti-theft tags integrated into price stickers from Sync
Technology, in Victoria. "It's an adhesive and within is an RF circuit," says
Sync's Nolan Wheeler. Every time a piece of cheese, meat or deli product is
weighed and has a price sticker slapped on, that label includes an RF device
that can trigger an alarm when stolen. The system can also send a warning to the
store manager's phone or tablet within one second, says Wheeler. The manager
could perhaps then follow the thief to take down his licence plate number.
David Sullivan, owner of an
IGA in downtown Vancouver, installed a Sync labelling system two years ago. "We
noticed a substantial improvement in our meat department," he says. Still, adds
Sullivan, his store has experienced an increase in shrink in other departments,
which he attributes to experienced thieves now avoiding meat but looking for
other items to steal and sell, such as high-end olive oil. "So it's a mid-level
deterrent for professional thieves, a high-level deterrent for the casual
thief," he says.
UPDATE: THREE SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY; 3 of 15 Guns Recovered in Canadian Tire

Latest Survey reveals staggering cost of online
Credit cards had highest level of fraud of all
payment types for
83% of online retailers
Launched at Retail Risk - London, part of the world's largest
risk and loss prevention conference series, the UK Retail Fraud Survey 2016
- sponsored by WIS International has reported that
83% of retailers highlighted that credit cards had the highest proportion of
fraud of all payment types this year.
Published by Retail Knowledge and
sponsored for the second consecutive year by WIS International, one of the
leading global inventory and data collection services companies, the Survey
is the most extensive report into the systems, processes and strategies of
the UK's top retailers available. The Survey
covers retail transactions accounting for some 32% of all UK retail sales
online and offline through 34,950 stores across the UK.
The biggest area of online loss
remains, overwhelmingly, from the fraudulent use of credit cards (51%).
Despite a small decrease from last year's figure of 55%, this is a
multi-billion pound problem for consumers as well as retailers, because
ultimately the cost of fraud is recouped through increased prices in the
The previous report showed that a lucky 15% of those that
trade online reported that they do not have any concerns or had not had a
recent online fraud event. The 2015 survey remarked that perhaps, as they
were new to online, these stores had been a little complacent and that does
seem to have been the case as this year that number has shrunk dramatically
Paul Bessant of Retail Knowledge, said: "It is no surprise
that credit card fraud is the biggest area of online loss again this year.
However, whilst retailers' spending on online fraud prevention has doubled
in the last 2 years, and this has met with some success in specific areas
such as fraudulent credit card use, our research underlines the concerns of
many, that overall they could be losing the war against cyber criminals."

Just Because You're
Living in the Eastern Block doesn't mean you won't be caught eventually.
Just try going on vacation. We'll be there!
Artem Vaulin, a Ukrainian citizen, was arrested in Poland when
visiting there and was charged with criminal copyright infringement for his
alleged role operating Kickass Torrents, which authorities said was the
69th most frequently visited website on the internet.
A federal judge
in Chicago ordered the seizure of one related bank account and seven domain
names, the Justice Department said. The website allows users to share
hundreds of millions of files, including movies still in theaters, and
supports itself through advertising, prosecutors said. Mr. Vaulin couldn't
be immediately reached for comment.
The website receives more than 50
million visitors each month, and made between $12 million and $22 million
each year on advertising, prosecutors said. The website has previously been
blocked by courts in Europe and elsewhere. The case was brought in Chicago
because the website uses a computer server based there, authorities said.
Editors Note: The suspect had left the Ukraine and was obviously
being followed when he was picked up in Poland. A huge mistake on his part.
As the U.S. has been unsuccessful in getting the Ukraine, Romania, and a
number of other countries in that block to cooperate with authorities.
Interestingly enough one of the biggest hacks in U.S. history, the TJX
hacker was arrested in a European airport after he left Romaina to go on
vacation. A huge mistake on his part for thinking he wasn't being watched.
He's now sitting in a U.S. federal jail and will soon be joined with his
"kickass" colleague. But I don't think they'll be laughing.
PayPal and Visa reach a
pact on fees and data
Improving fraud fighting measures
PayPal will stop discouraging customers from linking
accounts to Visa cards.
PayPal Holdings Inc. and Visa Inc. announced an agreement Thursday in
which PayPal will stop discouraging customers from linking accounts to Visa
cards and share more data with the card network in exchange for "long-term
Visa fee certainty" and other incentives.
For Visa, the deal stems
the loss of transaction fees when PayPal users link their PayPal and
Venmo digital wallets to their bank accounts. For PayPal, it removes the
threat of new fees from Visa that could drive up its costs.
agreed not to encourage Visa cardholders to link their PayPal accounts with
a bank account. That practice, known as steering, had drawn ire from Visa
executives as it allowed PayPal to process those customers' payments via the
cheaper, bank-owned ACH network, cutting Visa out of transactions.
also agreed to provide better data about its transactions to Visa
cardholders' issuing banks. Payment networks had complained that PayPal
wasn't providing enough transparency about the purchases cardholders were
making with their PayPal accounts, making it difficult to fight
fraud and properly apply rewards.
Austin, TX: Chick-fil-A
manager accused of stealing over $100k; Refund fraud!!
The Austin Police Department has arrested and charged Justin Roy Felder
of Austin with Theft, a Second Degree Felony. Felder is accused of stealing
over 100-thousand dollars in false returns for the Chick-fil-A where he
worked. This happened at the Chick-fil-A located at 13201 N FM 620 Road NB
in Austin. According to the arrest affidavit, the investigation began in
June of 2013 when the operations director of that restaurant noticed an
unusually large amount for a refund on the financial transaction reports.
Felder was the manager on duty at the time of this incident. When asked
about the refund, Felder admitted to authorizing it. The refund had been
processed on a register that does not have cash, a terminal that is used for
order taking in the drive thru. When asked where the money was located from
the Felder responded, "There is no money, it was credited to my bank card."
UPDATE: New York: Leader
of $430,000 ID Theft Ring that targeted Saks gets at least 2 years in prison
The leader of an identity theft ring that used stolen credit card info to
charge over $400,000 in designer duds at Saks Fifth Avenue was sentenced
Thursday to two to four years in prison. Tamara Williams, 38, copped to
grand larceny, identity theft and scheme to defraud as part of a plea deal
she took in Manhattan Supreme Court last January. "She's satisfied with the
resolution," said her defense lawyer Frank Rothman. "She got the minimum
allowed." Williams pulled off the scheme that began in May of 2014 by
recruiting three sales associates of the high-end Midtown retailer,
according to the Manhattan district attorney's office. She supplied her
cohorts with the credit card data, Social Security numbers and birthdays of
over 20 Saks customers, authorities said. The three ex-workers used store
computers to make $430,000 in fraudulent purchases using the stolen
information. The ring's haul included a $10,000 YSL bag, a pair of $2,250
Giuseppe Zanotti boots and over 200 pairs of designer heels. The Saks
workers passed the high-end goods to accomplices posing as shoppers. The
phony buyers delivered the items to Williams who sold them on the black
market, officials said.
AZ: Woman arrested in $3,000 Home Depot fraud scheme
A Mesa woman believed to be a member of a theft ring that targeted a
home-improvement retailer faces felony charges after she was arrested in
connection with several incidents of high-ticket merchandise being bought
for minuscule prices after price tags were swapped, according to Mesa
police. Ashlee Demery, 19, faces felony counts of fraud schemes, organized
retail theft, shoplifting and criminal enterprise charges after her July 14
arrest. She is accused of involvement in a theft ring that caused Home Depot
stores a collective loss of $2,898.22 in 14 incidents. Police said Demery
was involved in eight incidents at the home-improvement retailer, which
began May 4 and ended June 27.
Police said Demery and other suspects
would use self-checkout kiosks to buy a $149 motion-sensor light or multiple
dimmer switches valued at nearly $50 each for about $5 after switching the
price tags with ones for light bulbs. They would then go back to a Home
Depot days later to return the merchandise at its full-purchase value
without a receipt using someone else's ID, police said.

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.
