Lakeland, FL: Three Walmart
employees arrested for manslaughter after shoplifting suspect dies|
Three Walmart employees who restrained a man accused of stealing DVDs in a store
have been charged in his death. A Walmart Support Manager, Customer Service
Manager, and a Loss Prevention Associate, have all been charged on Thursday with
manslaughter in the death of suspected shoplifter Kenneth E. Wisham, 64.
Wisham tried to steal almost $400 worth of DVDs from the Lakeland, Florida
super Walmart on February 7. When the three employees tried to prevent him from
getting away with the merchandise, things took a turn for the tragic and the man
stopped breathing. Once an autopsy concluded that Wisham had died due to
mechanical asphyxiation while being restrained and not from a pre-existing
medical condition, and also had 15 broken ribs, the trio were charged in his
death. Walmart released a statement saying that the three had been suspended
from their jobs and the company is cooperating with police.
Lakeland, FL Police Department: "Based on the investigation conducted
by the Lakeland Police Department, State Attorney's Office and Medical
Examiner's Office, the listed below individuals have been charged with
Manslaughter (F2). Warrants for their arrest were signed on July 27th and they
were all taken into custody on July 28th. Nathan Allen Higgins, 35 years old -

While over 600,000 loads or 310.847 tons of tree nuts were stolen
last year, the majority of robberies involve no breaking in.
Rather, criminal organizations are exploiting the industry's weaknesses and
scamming their way through the system via strategic cargo theft, said
CargoNet, a cargo theft prevention and recovery network.
in cargo theft began around 2012 and surged in 2015, with total losses of
$4.6 million last year, according to the U.S. Department of
Justice in Sacramento. While general cargo theft is nothing new, nut
processors specifically have seen thefts rise from just one in 2009,
according to the Justice to Department, to 32 in 2015, according to Cornell.
"They basically trick [the distributors] into giving [the criminals] the
cargo," said Scott Cornell, transportation lead and cargo & theft specialist
at Travelers Insurance. To do this, all one needs is a laptop and a cell
phone, Cornell said. The "bad guys" use the identity of a legitimate
trucking company but change the contact information.
produces the most tree nuts in the United States, growing almost all the
nation's almonds, walnuts and pistachios. It is second to China in world
production of tree nuts and is hit the hardest by theft, according to the
USDA. But nut thefts also have been spotted in Georgia and Arizona, Cornell
Not only does the high profit attract thieves, but also the low
risk involved in stealing nuts; they're untraceable, can quickly disappear
and are easy to move, said Cornell. Criminals picked up on this when
the 2008 recession hit, raising demand in the food and beverage
industry as demand for expendable items such as electronics fell. cnn.com
Macy's Wins Arbitration
Over Unpaid Time For Security Bag Checks
Enforceable Arbitration Agreement Nullifies
Class Action Lawsuit
A California federal
judge on Thursday tossed a proposed class's claims and pushed individual
claims against Macy's into arbitration on Thursday, saying the former
employee can't bring wage-and-hour suit over mandatory security checks of
their bags, per an existing agreement.
Former Macy's employee Yulie
Narez sued Macy's West Stores Inc. accusing the retailer of failing to pay
for security bag checks in violation of California state law. But U.S.
District Judge Lucy Koh said Narez and Macy's entered a "valid,
enforceable arbitration agreement" that covers six of the seven
claims Narez brought.
CargoNet's Q2 2016 Cargo
Theft Trend Analysis
192 Cargo Theft Incidents, $39M Total, Average
Value $330,339, 8 over $1M, 1 $8M Case, $14,6M in Electronics
In Q2 2016, CargoNet's Command Center logged 297 reports of cargo theft,
identity theft, vehicle theft, and other criminal intelligence matters
relating to the United States and Canadian supply chain. Of those incidents,
192 involved theft of cargo, down 15 percent compared with
second-quarter 2015. However, CargoNet recorded a $1.3 million
increase in the total value of reported cargo thefts. An estimated
$39 million in cargo was stolen in Q2 2016. Sixty-one
percent of incidents had a loss value recorded. The average incident
was valued at $330,339, up $63,243 from cargo theft incidents
reported in second-quarter 2015. In second-quarter 2016, CargoNet recorded
eight cargo theft incidents worth $1 million or more; in
particular, one cargo theft incident was valued at an estimated $8
million. In second-quarter 2016, $14.6 million in
electronics items were stolen in cargo thefts. Electronics was the
most costly category, but not the most frequently stolen commodity.
Food and beverage items were stolen most often, though losses in
the category decreased 17 percent year over year. Also in second-quarter
2016, $3.81 million in food and beverage items were stolen.
Warehouse or distribution center locations were the most common location
for cargo theft, with 53 thefts. Unsecured yards were the next most common
location, with 29 cargo thefts. Thefts in this category grew 45 percent year
over year. Fifty-nine percent of unsecured yard thefts occurred in Texas (35
percent) and California (24 percent). In contrast, cargo thefts were down 26
percent at truck stops and down 36 percent at parking lots. ajot.com

Transaction Security and
Retail Strategy Essential for Mobile Payments
As negative perceptions may remain for the near future, retailers will have
to make transaction security a centerpiece of their retail strategy to
change the view that mobile payments are risky.
"The payment industry
needs to engage in awareness and education ... security issues are by far the
primary impediment to adoption," said Daughney.
Merchants need a
sound payments retail strategy to ensure they're able to capitalize on
growing mobile trends. Forbes
reports that a survey of nearly 100 retailers by PCM Research and ACI
Worldwide found that while half of retailers said they were interested in
mobile POS and mobile wallets, only a fifth of them had implemented an
omnichannel payments program. Retailers reported challenges such as
incompatible systems, data integration and the inability to track customers.
A mobile payments retail strategy should factor in how the retailer's
market may use such payments, how the retailer can entice customers to use
them with rewards and what type of mobile wallets will be accepted.

found that 72 percent said payment security was the most important factor in
an app. Retailers will need to follow market trends in mobile payments to
ensure they're offering the payment options consumers desire. samsung.com
Will Mounting Lawsuits
Compel Credit Card Companies to Change Their Ways?
Legal Battles Mount Over Liability Shift
In just the past two months, three of the nation's largest retailers have
filed lawsuits against the two biggest credit card companies over how
consumers pay at the register. Walmart, Home Depot and Kroger have
all filed suits alleging Visa and MasterCard chose to leave consumers
unnecessarily vulnerable to fraud in favor of padding their own
The "liability shift" was
riddled with problems but served the credit card companies' and banks'
interests by allowing them to offload millions in fraudulent charges
As Walmart stated in its lawsuit:
"Signatures can be forged or copied, and cashiers may forget to
check the signature on a receipt or (point-of-sale) terminal to make sure it
matches the signature on the back of the card." Furthermore, Home Depot
argued, "Visa and MasterCard do not require that signatures are verified and
even discourage merchants from verifying signatures, for fear that consumers
will be less likely to use their payment cards."
As those points
illustrate, signatures have become a mere formality when
making a purchase. And in a world where most transactions occur online, it
should not even be considered a legitimate security measure. morningconsult.com
EMV transition is slow going, but that was expected
Here's the Real Story of WHY the US is taking so
long to adopt

re-sellers and gateways. The U.S. is the most complex payment system in the
world," he said.
Reading this article will give you the true picture of
why we aren't up and running as a country yet. To a certain extent we've been
railroaded. And if you've been following the news and lawsuits about
certifications, fees, and liability this won't be cleared up any time soon.

'No More Ransom' Portal
Offers Respite From Ransomware
Firms Debut Decryptor for Shade Ransomware, Promise More.
That's the goal
of the new "No More Ransom" initiative announced July 25 that aims to help PC
users avoid becoming
ransomware victims as well as to help victims
decrypt their files.
There's no law in the United States and Europe
that prohibits paying ransoms. But law enforcement and security experts say that
beyond the legal considerations, paying ransoms funds cybercriminals, enabling
them to build stronger strains of ransomware, sell it to more affiliates - many
developers take a cut of all proceeds - and continue their attacks.
National High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands' police, Europol's European
Cybercrime Center, as well as two cybersecurity firms - Kaspersky Lab and Intel
Security - have announced
offer a one-stop shop for battling ransomware infections.
The No More
Ransom site offers four decryption tools that decrypt a range of ransomware
variants, including CoinVault, Cryptokluchen, Rannoh and TeslaCrypt. It also
includes ShadeDecryptor, a new decryptor for
Shade malware, which sometimes appends ".breaking_bad" to the end of
The site also gives ransomware victims in
Europe and the United States a way to report infections to authorities
to help them to better trace and battle ransomware-using crooks.

STANLEY SECURITY ANNOUNCES STANLEY GUARD
Mobility Solution Delivers Security and
to Campuses and Workplaces
- STANLEY Security, a leading global
manufacturer and integrator of comprehensive security solutions for a wide range
of industries, announces STANLEY Guard, a smartphone and cloud-based personal
safety and security response suite. The STANLEY Guard Personal Safety app
allows users - whether they are students, employees, or executives - to send
alerts, including video and their GPS location, directly to their security
command center for immediate response. The STANLEY Guard Security Response
app is designed to coordinate incident responses and provide a means of task
management for facilities and institutions that manage their own security.
Finally, the STANLEY Guard Command Center platform provides businesses,
schools, and other facilities an effective means to verify and dispatch their
security resources and manage mass notifications.
The STANLEY Guard campus security mobility solution provides personal safety
beginning with a user triggering an alert from their Personal Safety app. Once
the alert is triggered, the user's smartphone immediately notifies the STANLEY
Guard Command Center portal and begins to transmit the user's identity and
location, as well as live audio and video that may be used as evidence of the
incident. If the user chooses, he or she may then shake their smartphone,
turning the device into a high-volume, strobe-light alarm.
As the Command Center portal receives the alert triggered from the user's smartphone in real-time, the authenticity and severity of the threat may be
verified. In addition to receiving the user's real-time video and audio
evidence, location and identity, the Command Center also sees a record of
previous alerts, including comments from dispatchers and first responders. Once
the Command Center verifies a threat, a police or security officer may be
dispatched through the STANLEY Guard Security Response app. Further, the Command
Center can choose which security officer to dispatch based on either their
proximity to the incident or their unique qualifications and skill set.

for New LP Executives
Knowing Your True Role
Director of Loss Prevention,
24 Hour Fitness
Questions or comments can be emailed to
I can't tell you the number of times that non-LP professionals have made
comments to me about the "wanna-be cop" mentality. Luckily, the majority of
the comments revolve around the LP department not conducting itself like a
wanna-be police department within the company. There's a very fine line
between respectfully and professionally detecting and resolving dishonesty
that may occur in the workplace, and conducting yourself like a police
officer looking for the next bust.
One of the challenges of being a
LP Executive is finding that perfect middle ground - carrying yourself in a
confident and professional manner, and not over-stepping into an arrogant,
"I'm gonna catch the next perp" way-of-life. As I've said in previous
articles, usually people know exactly what "LP" signifies within a business
environment. At times, LP folks really fail because they constantly have to
exude why they're in-place, and what they may have to do. The bottom line is
that people know what you do, and the more you downplay the "sexiness" of
the profession, the more you may find yourself to be highly respected and
valued by other business partners. Sure, we all have stories, we've all
investigated that employee who took the company for a ride for years, and
most of us have struggled with a tough, career shoplifter "just before the
sidewalk's property line". Part of being a great LP Executive is keeping a
lid on most of the stories, not getting distracted by the continual drama,
and using your intelligence and strategic edge to constantly keep the
company out of trouble, and your team safe and valued.
So my two
cents on the matter is as follows: If you're not in a role that actively
apprehends shoplifters, leave the metal, clip-on badge in your desk drawer.
If you started this wonderful LP journey in the private security sector (as
I did!), you're no longer in a uniform - you're a business professional. If
your claim to fame is the total amount of investigations that you've
resolved, and your aspiration is to become a LP Executive, quickly shift
your focus to the other aspects of LP. An extremely small percentage of
being a true Executive is handling day-to-day investigations. It's obviously
priceless to have all of this life experience - none of it is wasted. At
some point, when one decides to make the leap from field management to a
corporate-based role, there needs to be heavy reflection, often-times a
change in mindset, and at the end of the day, playing things cool. Many eyes
are immediately on you as the department's conductor - and the metal badge
will only distract people.

Meeting LP Demand
Carlos Bacelis, Dir. of Analytics,
As the retail shopping experience becomes more
fluid with an ever-increasing range of options and channels, LP professionals
must grapple with new demands while balancing exposure to shrink. Although the
mechanics of lost profit and theft may not have appreciably changed, the
transactional technology options available to customers certainly have. In this
Carlos Bacelis, Director of Analytics for
Walmart, discusses how they're using new technologies designed to limit the
retail giant's exposure while preserving the shopping experience.

Friendly fraud: Online
sellers are losing billions
Friendly fraud is
an undeserved chargeback. It occurs when a customer fraudulently files a
chargeback claiming the item ordered was never received or he never made the
charge. Some people do this with fraudulent intent. Others just because they
changed their mind (after receiving the goods or service). Either way, its
What makes friendly fraud even easier to perpetrate is the
reluctance of our banking system to thoroughly investigate chargeback
claims. When a claim is filed, banks commence investigations which are more
often than not mere formality. Because of this, chargeback fraud has become
a way for consumers to make easy money. Instead of approaching the seller
and giving them an opportunity to resolve the conflict, the cardholder
immediately goes to their bank to ask for a chargeback. Most customers claim
to have filed a chargeback because they did not have time to contact the
merchant; however, approximately 80% of all chargebacks filed are filed out
To reduce risk, it is best to comply with general
business practice; one should always use an address verification service
(AVS). AVS is an automated fraud prevention program that helps reduce the
risk of friendly fraud for merchants. Using AVS can help reduce the amount
of cases of friendly fraud because in general, only the real cardholder will
have access to all the necessary information.
should be required to enter their card security code during checkout. By
necessitating the card's security code, it makes it more likely that a
completed transaction will only be completed by the actual cardholder.
Lastly, by providing outstanding customer service, merchants will help
ensure that they do not have unsatisfied customers. With great customer
service, it becomes less likely that a disgruntled customer would contact
the bank for a chargeback instead of contacting the business's customer

Six member fraud gang busted for $9M scheme
Hit Home Depot & Target Stores
owner of Smiles II go-go bar and five others charged after a 10-month
investigation called "Operation Smiles" led by the Division of Criminal
Justice Gangs & Organized Crime Bureau and the Roxbury Police Department.
According to an Attorney General release, the probe revealed that, over
a period of four years, the defendants conspired to steal more than
$9 million by defrauding retailers, banks, credit card processing companies
and credit card holders. The scheme involved the use of stolen credit cards
and fraudulently obtained credit cards. The credit cards were used to
purchase pre-paid gift cards issued by credit companies such as Master Card
and Visa at various retail stores, including Target and Home Depot.
The release said the gift cards were later "cashed in" through phony
transactions at Smiles II, and the proceeds were allegedly divided between
the individuals who supplied the cards, including Rodriguez and Turner, and
Lipka and his partners at Smiles II.
The probe also showed that
individuals, including Rodriguez and Turner, also allegedly used
stolen credit cards to buy high-priced merchandise at retail stores,
particularly Home Depot. The merchandise was later returned for in-store
credit that could be used later, or for in-store gift cards that could be
exchanged for cash on the Internet. In other cases.
investigation further revealed that the defendants allegedly acquired gift
cards through various other criminal schemes. In one scheme, vehicles were
fraudulently offered for sale through eBay and Craigslist. Unsuspecting
purchasers would be directed to pay for the vehicle with pre-paid gift cards
from credit companies such as Master Card and Visa, and those gift cards
also were allegedly processed through Smiles II. The vehicles were never
shipped to the victims.

5 Tips for Taking Feedback Like a Champ
Receiving feedback is something that a lot of us struggle with. It can cause
us to feel anxious, or even go on the defense, but feedback can be the most
powerful tool we have to grow and become successful. Here's how you can make
yourself more open to feedback.
That feeling? It's normal

When you think you've got your job mastered, think again. That's usually
when something bad happens in one's career or company. If you reach that
point, and most everyone does, it's time to reevaluate 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. 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!
