The genesis of the Retail Organized Crime
Coalition (ROCC) - Part one

By Glenn Justus

Queries of two eCommerce platforms revealed a likely villain, Mr. Smith, targeting expensive text books. The investigative profile produced convictions of retail theft in Arizona, a car theft in Tennessee, a solid address and a likely solution to chronic losses. A conversation with Mr. Smith produced a detailed description of criminal behavior impacting Barnes & Noble stores from Seattle to San Diego - Maine to Miami and all major cities in-between. Turns out Mr. Smith had stolen in excess of $500,000.00 over the previous five years, routinely crossed state lines with his bounty and used the US Post office to ship his online sales. The case was ultimately accepted by the US Attorney in Atlanta and the United States Secret Service. This behavior is common to professional shoplifters and ORC teams and planted the seed for ROCC. What is ROCC?

ROCC's Mission Statement:

ROCC is the avenue connecting loss prevention investigators and federal law enforcement at the headquarter level. ROCC was forged to combat chronic retail organized crime through case referrals, education and the distribution of timely intelligence.

ROCC is scheduled to launch at the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators Annual International Conference in Minneapolis, MN on September 1st. Please join me to learn more about ROCC, its members, case submission and participation, save the date link below:

Retailers battle rising card-not-present fraud risk - 'Fast Fraud'
As retailers shift to e-commerce and digital goods, they are seeing a new risk pop up called "fast fraud." This type of fraud - where the card is not present and only numbers are needed - is undermining retail security systems and exposing merchants to millions of dollars in lost sales. The digital goods industry, including music downloads, e-books, gift cards and online ticketing, is really driving the fast fraud phenomenon. Research indicates that card-not-present fraud was about $10 billion last year, and could rise to [more than $18 billion] by 2018.

In the first year shift to EMV in Europe they saw a shift occur in the first year when half of all problems were card-not-present fraud. Some retailers are working on solutions ... the savvy ones that understand the need to adapt. But not everyone has the resources of a Macy's or Nordstrom, and are simply not reassessing their systems and asking basic questions [such as] what happens if the amount of people trying to defraud the system doubles. Can the system handle it? Can the system detect fraudulent gift cards and can it handle manual transactions? It's all about being proactive. read more nrf.com

Primark's entry into U.S. Could Mean LP Directorship and LP Jobs
Value apparel retailer Primark, which recently launched its U.S. website, announced it will open its first U.S. location, in Boston, on Sept. 10. The store measures 77,000 sq. ft. and is situated downtown in the Burnham Building, the site of the city's iconic Filene's department store. Primark's second U.S. outpost will open in King of Prussia mall. The retailer said it plans to open an additional eight stores over the next two years. Primark, which produces and sells inexpensive men's, women's and kids' fashion, was founded in Ireland in 1969. It operates over 280 stores in nine European countries. Editor's Note: Keep a close watch on this one as these stores, as you know, will have shrink issues which may drive a number of LP jobs. At first they may outsource it but eventually they will build an LP program. chainstoreage.com
GNC Liable For Wage And Break Violations, Workers Say in California
Classes of General Nutrition Corp. employees urged a California federal judge on Tuesday to rule that the retailer is liable for labor law violations, including failing to provide meal breaks, providing inaccurate wage statements and not paying their final wages within the required time limits. Three classes of GNC workers, who were certified last November, argued that there are no disputes of fact over whether the nutrition chain committed the violations. They also claimed that GNC's delay in paying employees' final wages was willful. law360.com

The off-price & small format push gaining speed
With J Crew, Macy's, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth all pushing their off-price stores, this retail sector will be one of the fastest growth sectors in retail over the next few years. Couple that with the small format push of Wal-Mart, Lowes, and Target and what you've got is small stores growing at light speed. With everyone digging in and trying to get the urban and value driven consumer that has no time and doesn't want to spend a lot of money. Big stores are getting smaller and high end mall stores are going cheap. At the end of the day this will increase shrink risks as ORC gangs will be able to get in and out quicker and faster. Just a thought.

Saks Off 5th - "We're getting aggressive"
We will open up 15 Saks Off 5th outlets in the U.S. in 2015 and will have 90 by the end of the year," he says. "In 2016, our plan is to open 20 stores in the U.S. And we are opening up to eight stores in Canada in 2016, and up to 25 in Canada within the first five years. "We think there are opportunities to go global with the brand."  wwd.com

Now its Target asking vendors to "take it to another level"
Earlier this year Wal-Mart ask vendors to cut ads and any expense they could in order to reduce cost so Wal-Mart could take their infamous roll-backs even further. And now Target's doing the same. "Target's latest message is that the company will need cooperation and collaboration from all its suppliers to achieve its goals." retailwire.com

History of ORC Series Update
The response so far has been fantastic with four ORC associations having sent in their histories and news about their groups that we'll be publishing over the next few weeks. A few are even planning on taking group selfies at their next meetings. We've already published one ORC Leader's story and have four more planned to publish over the next month. Always looking to publish those on Monday's. So if you're involved with an ORC association or have an ORC leader you feel should be written about please let us know and we'd be honored to tell their story to the entire industry.

Our mission is to develop an ORC Resource Center that allows the industry to share what everyone is doing and to honor those leading the nation's efforts at combating the #1 cause in retail shrink. Have an idea or want to get involved? Let us know and let's create a vehicle that can be used to help pass more state laws and maybe even help influence federal ORC legislation.

Cargo Thefts Continue to Trend Up -
$19.5M Stolen in Q2 - Up 8%

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - From April through June, cargo thieves stole more than $19.5 million in cargo from the country's supply chain. Nationwide, cargo theft increased 8 percent in second-quarter 2015 year-over-year. The total estimated value of stolen cargo was up $8 million when compared year-over-year. April had the most recorded cargo thefts in the United States (70). Cargo theft gradually decreased in May (67) and again in June (57).

Cargo theft was highest in California, with 36 reported cargo thefts, followed by Texas (35) and Florida (27). As predicted in the CargoNet first-quarter 2015 report, cargo thefts in New Jersey decreased significantly (55% from first-quarter 2015), but thefts in that state are still trending slightly higher than second-quarter 2014.

Twenty-nine percent of cargo thefts recorded this quarter occurred at truck stops and parking lots. Nine percent of all recorded cargo thefts were classified as fictitious or fraudulent cargo pickups. Two percent of all recorded cargo thefts were violent, either hijackings or armed robberies.

Food and beverage items were the most stolen commodity of second-quarter 2015. Various kinds of nuts and alcoholic beverages were the most targeted items. Household items were the second most stolen commodity. Thieves targeted a wider variety of products within this category. Some of the most targeted included major appliances, lawn mowers, and furniture. Theft of electronics ranked third but was the most expensive category ($7.9 million). Televisions were the most stolen electronics item, but cell phones and computers were very close behind. The average cargo theft was worth about $168,308 in stolen goods, but some categories such as electronics were much higher. The median theft was worth $338,464.

CargoNet is a division of Verisk Crime Analytics, a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) business.

Mexico's largest department store chain 'Liverpool' - Facing major legal problems over late reporting of data breach - Hacking Group 'SicKillers' Bribing Them-scandal of in store deaths  Mexico's largest department store chain, Liverpool, is facing a widening probe for failing to immediately notify customers about a hacker attack at Christmas. "We started an audit process June 15 and hope to complete it in October," says Mexican data-protection watchdog. Depending on what it finds, "we might sanction them," he said.

The retailer, which operates more than 100 stores, reported its systems were breached Dec. 24, exposing an unspecified number of employee e-mail and customer files. The retailer called the event "a bribery attempt to damage our reputation" and of "low risk." But privacy lawyers said the breach was likely significant and may have involved as many as 3.5 million store credit card customers.

Mexican hacking group SicKillers claimed responsibility, posting photos of Liverpool's senior managers on tech gossip site FayerWayer.com and asking, "if they can't take care of their private documents, do you think they can take care of yours...?" The organization claimed it has had full access to Liverpool's systems for six years, adding that they hope "to shed light on some company events, many of which they have [hidden]." Some observers said the breach was part of a vendetta after two employee death scandals have tarnished the retailer's reputation this year. wwd.com

Beacons are moving out of the pilot phase and helping retailers and marketers revolutionize in-store shopping  Beacon programs are quickly moving out of beta phase and becoming an integral part of the retail industry. Beacons can be used to power indoor maps, payments services, and location-sensitive product catalogs. There are many different beacon hardware vendors and systems - including Apple's iBeacon system - but they all share some basic characteristics. Namely, they allow retailers and event organizers to efficiently communicate indoors, without a need for GPS.

Beacon-influenced sales volume will ramp up quickly, as many forms of in-store marketing take up the technology, including couponing. iPhone and Android smartphones are compatible with this technology. We estimate that beacon-triggered messages could directly influence up to $4.1 billion of total US store sales this year (or .1% of sales volume at top-100 retailers). That figure will grow 10X in 2016.

Consumer app usage will help speed adoption of beacon programs. The lion's share of audience time on mobile is spent in apps. Beacon marketing requires that customers have targeted apps on their phones. businessinsider.com

Corporate Encrypt-Everything Policies Gain Interest
With tale after tale of data breaches and cyber-espionage making its way into the headlines, encryption by default has been a hot topic of late-and enterprises are beginning to respond. A large majority (84%) of respondents in a recent survey said that they had considered a security strategy of encrypting all sensitive data.

In the survey, from Vormetric and IANS, top reasons for encrypting data included; preventing data breaches (66%), fulfilling compliance or audit mandates (54%) and protection of financial and other assets (53%). Could encrypting everything result in a more simplified strategy for security technology, saving costs and improving security posture now and in the future? The idea is compelling, and the majority of security leaders we questioned felt that this could be a good idea."  infosecurity-magazine.com

Congress Should Pay More Attention to Payment Security
In the wake of data breaches at government agencies and several companies, credit monitoring services have increasingly been offered to breach victims to help mitigate any fraudulent activity. While those services may have some merit, the best way to protect consumers from fraud is by strengthening security measures at their most fundamental level: the point-of-sale. Consumer credit card transactions should be much more secure, and could be, but the United States continues to unnecessarily lag behind the rest of the world because credit card companies and banks insist on using a less secure alternative. In the blog, Berlyn, who is president of Consumer Policy Solutions and director of the Consumer Awareness Project, writes: "For some time, I have advocated for the implementation of chip and PIN technology. ...Should a thief attempt to use a stolen chip and PIN card for an in-store purchase, it would be useless without knowledge of the PIN. Furthermore, we could extend those protections even further if we had more robust mechanisms available to consumers to securely use their PINs during online transactions. The technology certainly exists, it is just not widely used." "Given the increased momentum on Capitol Hill to protect consumers from financial harm, an opportunity exists for the country's leaders to help provide those protections by championing chip and PIN," writes Berlyn. "Congress can play an important role by urging the nation's largest banks and credit card companies to do everything they can to provide American consumers with chip and PIN equipped cards to protect their financial transactions and help reduce fraud." nacsonline.com

Online Retailers Run Risks Under ADA's Title III
Given the lack of formal guidance on website accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act, "www" might as well stand for the "Wild Wild West." Despite the lack of formal standards from the U.S. Department of Justice or consistent interpretation from the courts, retailers whose websites are not sufficiently accessible to disabled users may be liable under the Americans with Disabilities Act. As the number of lawsuits and DOJ actions targeting retailers' websites under the ADA continues to increase, retailers can no longer afford to wait for formal guidance before making their websites accessible, say Stephanie Sheridan and Meegan Brooks of Sedgwick LLP. law360.com

Male ORC thief busted stealing electronics from Walmart stores in Waterville, Maine  A man who allegedly tried to shoplift electronics from Wal-Mart on Waterville Commons Drive fled the store in a car full of items police say were stolen from another Wal-Mart location. Noah Herrin, 29, listed as a transient from Lewiston, was arrested Monday night and charged with felony theft and possession of stolen property. Herrin has at least five prior convictions for theft, police said. Minutes before Waterville police arrested him, Herrin had fled Wal-Mart after trying to steal two Acer laptop computers and a computer monitor valued at more than $900. The store's loss-prevention staff called police and tried to stop Herrin as he left the store, but he ditched a shopping cart containing the items and left in a gray 2003 Ford Focus. In a search of the vehicle, officers found a "large amount" of electronics that were suspected to be stolen, including a 50-inch VIZIO flat-screen TV and a Pioneer amplifier. Officers also found an empty 32-inch VIZIO TV box and a box for an Acer computer that was also empty, Rumsey said. centralmaine.com

Hitesman said she regularly entered the store with an infant in a stroller and left without paying for cases of formula that she hid in the stroller's bottom rack. She and Guyton then sold the formula for $6 a can to a food store on Peoria's south side. pekintimes.com
