Retailers Lose $7.6B to 'Wardrobing' Annually
Accounting for One-Third of All Return Fraud

How retailers are stemming returns with new rules and oversized tags

The National Retail Federation's 2018 Organized Retail Crime survey estimated that return fraud and abuse amounted to $24 billion in 2017. Wardrobing - the return of used, non-defective merchandise - accounted for 32 percent of all retail return fraud in 2017, a loss of $7.6 billion.

NRF Vice President for Loss Prevention Bob Moraca says apparel, which includes expensive gowns and suits - typical targets of wardrobing - accounted for 13 percent of total returns.

"Only half of what's returned can be resold," says Stuart Rosenthal, vice president of sales and marketing for Alpha High-Theft Solutions, a brand of Checkpoint Systems, a division of CCL Industries and a provider of single-use tags. He says one report estimated that almost two-thirds of retailers have "encountered customers who use an item and then return it for a refund."

And, he adds, "people who 'wardrobe' on average return about 20 items a year per person, not including items stolen and returned."

In the past few years, retailers and the manufacturers of single-use security tags as well as companies like Appriss and Brightpearl have stepped up their efforts to confront problems like wardrobing and serial returners.

Appriss Retail provides artificial intelligence software that can pinpoint people who serially return products.

Brightpearl provides customer relationship management systems that allow retailers to better track their customers' returns. Companies can tag a customer in the system and then monitor their purchase histories and returns, and use that to pinpoint those with higher return rates or odd patterns of behavior. stores.org

Australia & New Zealand retailers lose billions to theft,
'micro-gangs' and emboldened shoplifters to blame

Retail theft in Australia has soared with emboldened shoplifters, casual thieves and organised crime-backed 'micro-gangs' to blame, a new report has revealed. Thieves are targeting everything from the latest tech goods, jewellery and perfume to baby formula - and it's costing businesses big bucks.

Australian and New Zealand retailers reported a staggering $3.37 billion in crime-related losses in the 2017-18 financial year, The Australia and New Zealand Retail Crime Survey 2019 released on Thursday showed. That figure represents an average loss of 0.92 percent of a retail business's total revenue, with thieving customers the overwhelming culprits.

Just over half (57 percent) was attributed directly to shoplifting, with a 22 percent dishonest employee theft, 15 per cent non-crime related losses, and 6 percent supplier fraud.

Employee safety fears and calls for crackdown

The rise in retail theft has left employees vulnerable, the report said. This includes the trend of "micro-gangs" using "steaming" techniques - in which a small group of shoplifters, sometimes backed by organised-crime syndicates, storm a store together, overwhelming staff and terrifying staff and customers.

"Thieves are becoming more brazen. We have seen this in the recent 'steaming' technique used by gangs to overpower mobile phone shops in broad daylight, often intimidating staff and pushing customers out of the way to reach the stock," University of London criminologist Dr. Emmeline Taylor said. thenewdaily.com.au

71% of American Gen-Zers are Buying Counterfeits,
Compared to 84% of Their Chinese Counterparts

Seventy-one perfect of Gen Z-ers in the U.S. have purchased a counterfeit good over the past year, while 84 percent of their Chinese counterparts have purchased a fake product in the past year, according to a new survey. In an effort to understand the attitudes and perceptions of Gen Z-ers in connection with counterfeit products (and intellectual property ("IP") rights more generally), the International Trademark Association ("INTA") polled 1250 Americans and 403 Chinese consumers between the ages of 18 and 23 and uncovered some telling insights on the state of the counterfeit economy.

In connection with its survey, which was completed between August and November 2018 and focused exclusively on Gen Z individuals - because by 2020, that age group is expected to comprise the most significant number of consumers globally, INTA found that 83% of the American Gen-Zers had "at least heard of IP rights," a legal umbrella under which trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents fall. In China, a whopping 99 percent said they are aware of IP rights. thefashionlaw.com

It's Getting Harder to Fire People for Using Pot
Groundbreaking lawsuits are making employers and states
rethink the way the workplace treats weed

The stories all go something like this: An employee is ordered to take a drug test. They have a medical marijuana prescription for a legitimate illness and tell their employer as much. The employer goes ahead with the test, gets back the positive results, and fires the employee.

Most states have statutes giving companies the right to drug-test the people they hire and to fire them for coming to work under the influence; in the ones that don't, courts have largely blessed the process. The precedents are murkier when it comes to employees who partake in a state-sanctioned, medically helpful drug in their off hours - and even more so for those who partake recreationally where it's legal to do so. Until the last few years, courts had largely backed companies that enforce zero-tolerance drug-free workplace policies. But with legalization sweeping the country and stigmas about pot smokers fading, judges and lawmakers are beginning to side with employees. bloomberg.com

Private equity's role in retail has killed 1.3 million jobs, study says
Women and people of color have been disproportionately affected by closures at debt-saddled stores.

More than 1.3 million Americans have lost their jobs in the past decade as a result of private equity ownership in retail, according to a report released Wednesday. That includes 600,000 retail workers, as well as 728,000 employees in related industries. Overall, the sector added more than 1 million jobs during that period.

Ten of the 14 largest retail bankruptcies since 2012 have been at private-equity-owned companies, such as Payless ShoeSource and Claire's, according to the study.

More than 1 million of the nation's 15.8 million retail workers continue to work for private-equity-backed companies, including Michael's, J. Crew and Neiman Marcus, according to the study. washingtonpost.com

JC Penney is fading. Nordstrom is struggling. Walmart is thriving.
That sums up what's happening in retail.

Retail earnings overall this quarter aren't looking good when compared with a year ago. A drop is being forecast for the industry. And department store chains in particular are still struggling to grow sales, whereas Walmart and Target have found pockets of growth in grocery, through their e-commerce businesses and with their in-house brands. cnbc.com

New details emerge on Amazon Go store rumored to be largest yet
More details are emerging that indicate Amazon is indeed preparing to open a 10,400-square-foot Go store in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. This would be by far its largest Go store to date. A neighborhood blogger took pictures looking inside the space that indicate it is an Amazon Go. According to Bloomberg, the Capitol Hill store was supposed to be the first Go store - and a supermarket at that, complete with a meat and seafood department, cheesemonger and produce section. The company put the opening on hold after deciding to shift to a convenience store model in 2015 in order to streamline the experience. grocerydive.com

7-Eleven develops alternative checkout option to Amazon Go
The company is rolling out a self-checkout feature in its app that allows customers to scan barcodes of products and pay via PayPal or other online methods. However, checkout is not totally automated. Upon leaving the store, one must put their smartphone with the app running face down on a scanner to complete the transaction. As with Amazon Go -- and unlike older self-checkout systems such as those at CVS or Home Depot -- there's no bag dispensing as cities such as New York follow San Francisco in banning plastic bags. 7-Eleven's process may be primitive compared to Amazon's, but it does result in a faster checkout by waiting on even a short line. zdnet.com

IBM Security
How much would a data breach cost your business?

The 2019 Cost of a Data Breach Report explores financial impacts and security measures that can help your organization mitigate costs.

The annual Cost of a Data Breach Report, conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by IBM Security, analyzes data breach costs reported by 507 organizations across 16 geographies and 17 industries. Read the report to discover all the factors that influence the cost of a data breach and which security measures can help organizations reduce the financial impact.

   Register for a report and calculator

With Data Breach Costs, Time is Money
IBM's study of over 500 data breach victims - conducted by the Ponemon Institute - shows that businesses with a formal incident response team and well-tested response plans spent $3.51 million on average on breach costs compared with $4.74 million by those who had neither.

The study shows that organizations on average took 206 days after initial intrusion to first identify a data breach and another 73 days to remediate it. But companies that were able to detect and contain a breach in fewer than 200 days spent $1.23 million less in breach costs.

The IBM-Ponemon study - now in its 15th year - considered four core categories of expenses when computing breach costs: lost business, detection and escalation, notification, and post-breach, Kessem says.

"We found that lost business has remained the highest cost factor over the past five years," Kessem says. This includes things such as the costs of business disruption, revenue losses from system downtime, damage to a company's reputation, and the cost of lost customers, she says. The global average customer turnover rate caused by a data breach was 3.9%, an increase from last year's rate of 3.4%, she says.

The global average cost for a data breach is now $3.92 million - or 12% higher than what it was five years ago. For organizations in the US, the average costs are more than double, at $8.19 million. darkreading.com

Equifax's data breach disaster:
Will it change executive attitudes toward security?

Equifax's 2017 breach will cost it billions in fines, customer restitution and mandated and voluntary security improvements. All organizations that profit from consumer data should take notice.

Fines don't add up to better security

Yet amid this and other recent high-profile and costly data breaches, it's still axiomatic among information security professionals that many if not most C-suite executives at companies like Equifax, British Airways and Marriott shy away from placing the necessary emphasis on cybersecurity needed to avoid these kinds of financial reckonings. Whether the increased visibility and pressure of these highly public repercussions of lax security will propel corporations to pursue stricter security measures and invest in better digital safeguards remains an open question.

In a declaration by one expert witness in the Equifax consumer class-action litigation, the power of major, damaging data breaches to spur corporations' cybersecurity spending spikes right after the breaches but then peters out over time.

"I have observed a pattern across many industries in which corporations provide ample funding to information security departments in the aftermath of a data breach. After a year or two, however, the companies drastically scale back information security funding, often before all of the planned security improvements have been completed," she wrote in her declaration attached to the settlement agreement. csoonline.com

Facebook's Libra currency spawns a wave of fakes, including on Facebook itself
A wave of fakes purporting to sell or represent Facebook's not-yet-available Libra currency have swept onto the social-media giant's platforms, highlighting how the tech firm is struggling to rebuild trust and fight the fraud likely to surround the new financial system.

Roughly a dozen fake accounts, pages and groups scattered across Facebook and its photo-sharing app Instagram present themselves as official hubs for the digital currency, in some cases offering to sell Libra at a discount if viewers visit potentially fraudulent, third-party websites.

The spread of fakes - and Facebook's inability to detect them on its own - could undermine Facebook-backed efforts to inspire confidence and satisfy the regulators now scrutinizing the newly proposed global currency. washingtonpost.com

US e-commerce platforms struggle to rein in counterfeit products
While Alibaba's 96% catch rate seems impressive, there is more to the story. Despite its current efforts, it remains part of a broader problem of Chinese counterfeits making their way onto online platforms.

China leads all other foreign countries in the number of trademark applications filed with the agency at 11%, Canada comes in second with just 2%, according to the USPTO. Furthermore, the sheer volume of Chinese applications has increased dramatically from 5,161 applications in fiscal year 2014 to 54,064 in fiscal year 2018, according to USPTO data.

USPTO Commissioner for Trademarks Mary Boney Denison testified at the hearing that the volume has been overwhelming for the agency and it has made it increasingly difficult to verify trademark claims. As a result, it has become easier for fraudulent Chinese products to enter U.S. and international online marketplaces.

Counterfeits have not only affected consumer products on Amazon, but they have serious implications for global manufacturing supply chains, where identifying counterfeit parts too late can be physically dangerous and damaging to a company's brand reputation.

To combat this, the USPTO cited its efforts to increase officer training, tighten security and verification measures on its online trademark and patent application portals, and to work with private businesses, trade associations and consumers to push for more comprehensive legislation that could hold e-commerce platforms more accountable for selling counterfeit goods. supplychaindive.com

Prime Day brings more consumer complaints
Amazon.com Inc. should be investigated by U.S. regulators over undisclosed paid endorsements on Prime Day, a consumer advocacy group says.

Washington-based Public Citizen asked the Federal Trade Commission in a letter dated Tuesday to examine the online retailer's associates program, which is used by Amazon to build word-of-mouth sales on the platform in exchange for commissions.

Under Amazon's associates program, selected reviewers refer their audiences to products on Amazon in exchange for a commission on subsequent sales. Public Citizen argued they function as endorsers who are paid for the endorsement, which requires disclosure.

Public Citizen said it found numerous examples of Prime Day recommendations like posts on Instagram with no disclosures or inadequate disclosures. It acknowledged some reviews may be genuinely independent. digitalcommerce360.com

Oklahoma Retail Crime Association (OKRCA) Partners with Tulsa Crime Prevention Network on New Public Awareness Campaign
On Wednesday, July 24, 2019 it was announced that the Oklahoma Retail Crime Association (OKRCA) is partnering with the Tulsa Crime Prevention Network ("Crimestoppers") on a new public awareness campaign.

By the end of the year, we will be producing both a print and digital 'newspaper' with pictures of unidentified and wanted subjects. There will be a dedicated section including specifically those who are victimizing our retailers. The Crime Prevention Network will pay rewards for anonymous tips identifying these offenders. These newspapers will be sold through local convenience stores, and all proceeds will go to support the Crime Prevention Network. This program is like one rolled out in recent years in other cities, and we're hoping to duplicate their successful results here.

Since approximately 35-40% of adults are either not on social media/Facebook or if they are, they are not following the pages that currently release suspect photos, the hope is that we get a wider audience for this information and that the reward incentive speeds up the identification of our suspects. All information will be filtered through Law Enforcement, so we can also increase the number of retailers participating in the program.

Any retailers wishing to participate in this program should contact Norm Smaligo (President, OKRCA) or Karen Gilbert (Executive Director, Tulsa Crime Prevention Network).

Thank you to Norm Smaligo for this article submission.

Ocoee, FL: Piercing Pagoda worker at West Oaks Mall stole identities to make $35K in fake sales
A former worker at the Piercing Pagoda kiosk at Ocoee's West Oaks Mall was arrested Tuesday, accused of nearly $35,000 in fraudulent transactions. Jada Monet Wright, 24, used Florida driver's license numbers she somehow obtained to open store credit card accounts without permission, which she used to make at least 31 unauthorized transactions between November and April. The fraudulent sales, totaling $34,998.21, represented 52 percent of Wright's sales, a loss prevention manager for Piercing Pagoda's parent company told Ocoee police. In addition to obtaining jewelry through the transactions, Wright was paid extra commission for making sales through store credit accounts, according to the affidavit.  orlandosentinel.com

Jefferson City, MO: Lowe's Cashier charged with Identity Theft; $6,000 credit to gift card transaction
Jacqueline Dryden, 56, is also charged with fraudulent use of a credit device. Dryden allegedly printed off a temporary store credit card for a customer who did not have his card with him. Dryden allegedly memorized the customer's name, date of birth, and last four digits of his Social Security number to reprint another temporary credit card under the man's Lowe's account. Authorities believe Dryden then worked with another cashier to charge $6,000 onto another store's gift cards using the temporary Lowe's credit card she had created on the victim's account. A Lowe's loss prevention officer said the money was put onto to the other store's gift cards, but they were never used. The officer also said Lowe's would refund the victim's account and the company would take the loss.  newstribune.com

The first step to having a successful mentoring experience is to change your definitions about it as it doesn't have to be a long-term commitment and it can even be for a specific project, a specific incident, or even for a specific weakness that you may have. The point is, while you may have the desire to find one, you may want to consider how you can be one for someone as well. A successful mentoring program offers an executive an oasis, a place of safety and trust, a place where you can get answers and advice about your own career. Just remember pay it forward and return the good deed.
