Netflix's Making a Murderer: An Interrogator's Perspective -
A Must Read for All Investigators
With all of the press this Netflix's series has gotten no one has
actually looked at it from the interrogator's prospective and Dave
Thompson's blog, from Wicklander & Zulawski & Associates, Inc., on
the series is one every investigator should read in detail. As it

Applicants Seek Class Cert. In Background Check Suit
Applicant Fired From CVS for Theft -
reported to Rite Aid
Moore has brought an amended complaint against Rite-Aid for failing
to comply with the FCRA, alleging the retailer makes employment
decisions using background reports provided by
First Advantage LNS Screening Solutions, and previously by
LexisNexis, without providing applicants with a copy or
sufficient time to dispute it before taking adverse action.
Having passed the dismissal stage in May, Moore asked the court on
Tuesday for class certification, saying thousands of ascertainable
individuals were deemed ineligible, or "non-competitive," by Rite
Aid based on purchased background reports, and once they were
entered into the system, each class member was sent a "pre-adverse
action" package, mailed in accordance with a standardized and
largely automated sequence of events, including the same form
The suit claims that Moore applied for a job
at Rite Aid after being fired by CVS following a surprise
interrogation by loss prevention agents, who allegedly turned vague
questions about forgetting to pay for snacks into an accusation of
theft. The interview resulted in a voluntary admissions statement
that led to her classification as "non-competitive," court documents
She was denied employment by Rite-Aid after receiving a
mailing that appeared to come from the company, stating that a
background report concluded she was "non-competitive" and that
she had committed a theft of $60 in merchandise from CVS, according
to her motion. She contacted the Rite Aid managers who had hired
her, but to no avail, she said.
According to Moore,
instead of giving applicants the opportunity to challenge an
inaccurate or misleading report, Rite-Aid stacked the deck against
them by sending them the report after they had already been rejected
for employment. Moore claims that thousands of ascertainable
individuals were scored non-competitive by Rite Aid based on
purchased background reports. law360.com
Workers Seek OK For $3.7M Anti-theft screening Wage Deal
Three former Amazon warehouse workers representing tens of thousands
of California employees asked a Kentucky federal judge to put the
stamp on a $3.7 million settlement with SMX LLC, the staffing agency
that employed them, ending claims alleging violations of California
wage-and-hour laws. The settlement covers more than 52,000
individuals who worked for SMX at Amazon.com fulfillment centers
located in San Bernardino, California.
claimed it took 20 to 30 minutes to pass through the anti-theft
screening at the end of each work day. The security process also
interrupted their 30-minute meal breaks as they had to be screened
before they were able to take their break, they complained.
The claims by the Saldana class are part of larger
multidistrict litigation against Amazon and contractors who provided
workers or warehouse space for the e-retailer. Workers allege they
should have been paid under state law for time they spent in
Initially, the lawsuits in the MDL made
claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as state laws,
U.S. Supreme Court ruled in December 2014 that time spent
undergoing security is not compensable under the FLSA.
Saldana's motion for final settlement approval noted that the high
court's ruling didn't directly address whether such time was
compensable under California state law. The parties ultimately came
together in June 2015 for mediation and hammered out a settlement
that was approved by Judge Hale in May.
If given final
approval, eligible members will receive either $20 or $30 per shift,
depending on when they worked at the company.
Coverage In Atty Parking Lot Murder/Shooting Awaits Verdict
A New Jersey judge on Wednesday ruled that insurers must defend The
Mall at Short Hills in a lawsuit over the 2013 fatal shooting of an
attorney at the New Jersey property but must cover only
judgments issued against the mall if a former security contractor is
found liable as well.
Superior Court Judge Stephanie
A. Mitterhoff said the mall's owner, Michigan-based
Taubman Centers Inc., is entitled to defense coverage as
"additional insureds" under two policies issued to
IPC International Corp. IPC, which had provided security
services to the mall, because the lawsuit from the widow of attorney
Dustin Friedland alleges the mall and the now-defunct security
company both acted negligently.
Taubman, however, is
entitled to indemnity coverage only if IPC is found to be at least 1
percent responsible for the incident, the judge said.
"Conversely, if IPC is found to be 0 percent liable, the mall
defendants will not be entitled to indemnification at all," Judge
In 2013 IPC was acquired by
Universal Protection Service LLC, which then began providing
security for the mall. Universal Protection Service is named as a
defendant in the underlying case. The insurance policies transferred
to Universal Protection Service.

Jamming Devices Part of Criminals
employees and even otherwise law-abiding citizens are using illegal

mobile - a common variety plugs into a vehicle's cigarette lighter -

Walgreens fights $1M punitive damages
in whistleblower case at the 9th Circuit
Walgreens will ask a federal appeals court to slash more than $1
million in punitive damages a jury awarded a Fresno, California
pharmacist after finding he was fired for challenging questionable
billing practices by individual pharmacists at several Walgreens
stores in the area.
In briefs filed with the 9th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals, which will hold oral arguments in the case on
Thursday, Walgreens says that Sami Mitri is not entitled to any
punitive damages, and that the $1.15 million he received - 13 times
his compensatory award of $88,000 - is unconstitutional under U.S.
Supreme Court precedent.

Russian Carbanak Gang - hacks Oracle's MICROS P-O-S
credit card payment systems
organized cybercrime group known for hacking into banks and retailers appears to
have breached hundreds of computer systems at software giant Oracle
Corp., KrebsOnSecurity has learned. More alarmingly, the attackers
have compromised a customer support portal for companies using Oracle's
MICROS point-of-sale credit
card payment systems.
Asked this weekend for comment on rumors
of a large data breach potentially affecting customers of its retail division,
Oracle acknowledged that it had "detected and addressed malicious code in
certain legacy MICROS systems." It also said that it is asking all
MICROS customers to reset their passwords for the MICROS online support portal.
MICROS is among the top three point-of-sale vendors globally. Oracle's
MICROS division sells point-of-sale systems used at more than 330,000 cash
registers worldwide. When Oracle bought MICROS in 2014, the company said
MICROS's systems were deployed at some 200,000+ food and beverage outlets,
100,000+ retail sites, and more than 30,000 hotels.
Two security experts
briefed on the breach investigation and who asked to remain anonymous because
they did not have permission from their employer to speak on the record said
Oracle's MICROS customer support portal was seen communicating with a server
known to be used by the
Carbanak Gang. Carbanak is part of a Russian cybercrime syndicate that is
suspected of stealing more than $1 billion from banks, retailers and hospitality
firms over the past several years. krebsonsecurity.com
FBI & IC3's
New Cyber Crime Initiative
Victimized by a Cyber Scammer?
Complaint with the IC3
FBI's Internet Crime
Complaint Center (IC3) started embarking on a campaign to increase awareness
of the IC3 as a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit
information on suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity to the FBI. As
part of the campaign, digital billboards featuring the IC3's contact information
are being placed within the territories of a number of Bureau field offices
around the country. All of which are part of the multi-agency cyber task
forces that participate in IC3's 'Operation Wellspring' initiative.
The FBI field offices taking part in the
billboard campaign include Albany, Buffalo, Kansas City, Knoxville, New Orleans,
New York City, Phoenix, Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, and San Diego and also
house the multi-agency cyber task forces that connects state and local law
enforcement with federal cyber resources and helps them build their own cyber
investigative capabilities, which is important because not all Internet fraud
schemes rise to the level necessary to prosecute them federally. We hope to
expand Operation Wellspring to other FBI offices in the future.
Through the Wellspring initiative, IC3 personnel-using the complaint database
and their analytical capabilities-create intelligence packages focused on
particular geographic regions. These packages can highlight trends, identify
individuals and criminal enterprises based on commonalities in complaints, link
different methods of operations back to the same organization, and detect
various layers of criminal activities. The packages also contain results of
preliminary investigative research performed by IC3 analysts, including criminal
Once complete, these intelligence packages go to the
appropriate FBI cyber task force and are then handed off to state and local task
force members trained to investigate these kinds of crimes.
Beyond Operation Wellspring, the IC3:
• Forms alliances with
industry representatives (online retailers, financial institutions,
Internet service providers, etc.) that have increased the flow of the IC3's most

Scan avoidance technology saving retailers billions at checkout
Retail chains worldwide are installing
StopLift Checkout Vision Systems'
Scan-It-All video recognition technology to detect scan avoidance incidents at
both the manned and self-checkout. From retailers on four continents, including
Tesco in the UK, StopLift has already detected and confirmed more than 1.7
million incidents at thousands of checkouts.
These incidents include "sweethearting", when cashiers pretend to scan
merchandise but deliberately bypass the scanner, thus not charging the customer
for the merchandise. The customer is often a friend, family member or fellow
employee working in tandem with the cashier.
StopLift's patented Scan-It-All video analytics technology visually determines
what occurs during each transaction to immediately distinguish between
legitimate and fraudulent behavior at the checkout. As soon as a scan avoidance
incident occurs, StopLift, which constantly monitors 100% of the security video,
flags the transaction as suspicious. It quickly reports the incident,
identifying the cashier or customer and the date and time of the theft. This
includes incidents which may be due to mistakes by the cashier or customer at
self-checkout as well as items left in the shopping cart.
Dishonest associates are identified on the basis of video evidence the first
time they conduct a fraudulent transaction, rather than months or even years
down the road, significantly reducing inventory shrinkage, deterring future
theft, and boosting profitability. Customers are identified at the
The technology eliminates costly, time-consuming human review of video,
drastically reduces and deters fraud at the checkout, and significantly improves
profitability, Kundu said. Rather than take a one-size-fits-all approach,
StopLift develops targeted applications to address the specific needs of
retailers from different sectors including general merchandise, grocery, and
Retailers have tried to track sweethearting or scan avoidance through data
mining, but, as Kundu notes: "How do you do data mining when there's no data?"
The U.S. National Retail Federation states that retail shrink was $44 billion in
2014 and about $14 billion of that is due to sweethearting. Supermarkets, with
their average 1-2% profit margins, are particularly vulnerable to sweethearting,
which has accounted for an almost 35% profit loss industrywide.
StopLift Checkout Vision Systems grew out of Kundu's Harvard Business School
research study "Project StopLift" on Retail Loss Prevention. With technological
research insights Kundu developed while at MIT, Project StopLift concluded that
video recognition could be used to automate and, thus, make possible the
comprehensive examination of surveillance video. Prior to founding StopLift,
Kundu developed facial recognition systems for identifying terrorists in

OH: Mentor Police Department Retail Theft Crime Deterrence Program paying
The results are in for the first half of
the 2016 Retail Theft Crime Deterrence Program, begun last year with the
help of a $18,000 State of Ohio grant. The program has netted nearly as many
arrests in the first six months of this year as in all of 2015. That also
goes for the number of criminal charges brought, totaling 125 so far in 2016
vs. 149 last year.
One similar stat is the large percentage of drug
addicts committing the crimes. Last year, it was 41 offenders out of the 67
arrested and this year it is 38 out of 56. "Mentor PD has done a great job
of developing relationships with loss prevention staff at various retail
establishments in the city, targeting theft offenses," Lake County Narcotics
Director David Frisone said. "Many of these thefts are committed to convert
stolen merchandise into cash-for-drug purchases.
The Retail Theft
Crime Deterrence Program was started in answer to a rise in drug-related
The first two years are being paid for with a 75
percent matching grant of about $25,000 from the Office of Criminal Justice

Getting involved in a process is an obligation and taking it seriously is
absolutely critical to your success regardless of what the process involves.
Whether it's looking at a job or sitting on a company committee. Once you've
committed, your reputation, your image, your future is at stake. Minimizing
it won't decrease the impact nor will it reduce the expectations of others.

you've committed, follow through and deliver your best.
