How Surveillance Changes Behavior: A Restaurant Workers Case Study  
New research paper, published on Saturday, shows in detail how significant the surveillance effect can be. The paper, “Cleaning House: The Impact of Information Technology Monitoring on Employee Theft and Productivity,” The researchers measured the impact of software that monitors employee-level theft and sales transactions, before and after the technology was installed, at 392 restaurants in 39 states. In the new study, the tracking software was NCR’s Restaurant Guard product, and NCR provided the data. The savings from the theft alerts themselves were modest, $108 a week per restaurant. However, after installing the monitoring software, the revenue per restaurant increased by an average of $2,982 a week, or about 7 percent. The impact, the researchers say, came not from firing workers engaged in theft, but mostly from their changed behavior. Knowing they were being monitored, the servers not only pulled back on any unethical practices, but also channeled their efforts into, say, prompting customers to have that dessert or a second beer, raising revenue for the restaurant and tips for themselves. “The same people who are stealing from you can be set up to succeed,” said Mr. Pierce of Washington University. But more significant, the researchers say, is what the data analysis might contribute to fields of study like social psychology and behavioral economics — and the business discipline of human resources management.

Ackman Moves to Dump Entire Stake in J.C. Penney 39M shares  
Hedge-fund manager Bill Ackman moved to dump his entire stake in J.C. Penney Co., JCP -1.12% ending a failed bet on the retailer that cost his fund more than $600 million, resulted in the loss of thousands of jobs and left the 1,100-store chain still struggling to right itself. Mr. Ackman's Pershing Square Capital Management LP is unloading its 39 million shares—nearly 18% of Penney's stock—with help from Citigroup Inc., C -0.46% which underwrote the sale. Unclear is whether another dissident Penney director, Steven Roth, chairman of Vornado Realty Trust, plans to remain on the board or sell his company's remaining shares.

Home Depot Fined $150,000 for OSHA Violations
The company faces seven repeat violations at its Reynoldsburg, Ohio, store. OSHA said the same violations were found at Home Depot stores throughout the country from 2010 to 2012. "By failing to correct previously cited deficiencies, Home Depot continues to dismiss a culture of safety as a priority," Deborah Zubaty, OSHA's area director for Columbus, Ohio, said in a statement. "Employers who are cited for repeat violations demonstrate a lack of commitment to worker safety and health." The violations include failing to block exit routes, not closing unused openings in electrical cabinets, using flexible wiring instead of required fixed wiring, and installing plates on receptacles that exposed workers to 120 volts of live electricity. An eighth new violation was issued for failing to bond and ground flammable liquid storage containers during transfer at the Reynoldsburg store. (Source

McAfee Report Examines Challenges Retailers Face to Secure In-Store Payment Systems  Study by McAfee and IHL Group Finds PCI Compliance and Security Vulnerabilities are top Concerns for POS Systems. According to the report, without adequate controls to manage store systems and the increase in number and variety of devices – retailers can expect security costs to continue to increase rapidly.

IP forwarding services seeing greater demand
As the IP revolution continues to reshape the alarm industry, those in the monitoring space are finding some non-traditional ways to boost RMR and improve operations in an increasingly IP-centric world. One development amid these changes is the growing demand among central stations and their dealers for IP forwarding services. In simplest terms, these services allow centrals to own and resell individual IP addresses, rather than being bound to the IP address of their Internet service provider. Owning an individual IP address—much like owning toll free numbers in the past—can be a boon to both centrals and dealers trying to increase redundancy and preserve flexibility and value as companies evolve, separate or merge.

Stern new data breach reporting requirement takes hold in EU
In the 28 member-European Union (EU). As of Sunday, telecommunications and internet service providers in the EU have 24 hours from the moment of discovery to report a data breach to authorities. If the breach involves personal data, the EU law mandates that affected individuals are alerted “without undue delay” from detection of the incident, according to the regulation. There are no stringent rules like that in place in the United States, where alerting requirements are promulgated through a hodgepodge of state laws. Many don't enlist any deadline. They merely order breached organizations to notify victims or authorities within a reasonable timeframe. A few states require that notification happen no later than 45 days. (Source

Food Stamp fraud continues unabated due to loop hole in retailers just changing ownership names from one family member to the next  Agriculture Department's Food and Nutrition Service failed to impose almost $7 million in penalties on retailers who committed fraud under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or had previously been disqualified from it. Through SNAP, eligible households can use benefits to purchase food from retail food stores that have been approved to participate in the program. In fiscal year 2012, FNS distributed over $75 billion in SNAP benefits to low income households and approved 246,565 retailer locations to participate in SNAP, the report says. From a sample of 316 retailers, the IG found that FNS did not properly determine $6.7 million in penalties and authorized 51 ineligible storeowners, who redeemed over $5.3 million in benefits since 2006, the report says. One reason SNAP fraud occurred was because FNS does not have the authority to permanently disqualify a troubled store location that has a repeat history of trafficking violations. The permanent disqualification only applies to the owner at each subject location, so if there is a transfer of ownership, FNS cannot disqualify the new owner. Since high-risk retail store locations with permanent disqualifications continue to be authorized under new ownership, SNAP fraud can continue in some instances, the report says. Editors note: Being that the vast majority of these retailers are in fact family owned convenience stores and small grocery stores merely changing the ownership from one family member to the next takes them off the list. Also as reported in a number of other articles a lot of the fraud occurs when store owners buy the food stamps for much less than face value and give cash to the customer for obvious reasons. With some claiming that the true extent of fraud could be well over $750M annually. (Source

Dunkin Donuts franchise owner in N.J. and N.Y.'s Staten Island $200k in back wages violations and used tips to cover register shortages  The operator of 55 Dunkin Donuts franchises in New Jersey and Staten Island will pay nearly $200,000 to 64 employees for overtime and minimum wage violations. Investigators also found management used tips at two locations to cover register shortages. The action resulted in minimum wage violations of $237 for eight employees. The operator wrongly claimed its store managers were exempt from overtime. Though the employees performed management duties, they did not receive a guaranteed weekly salary, entitling them to overtime pay. (Source

Counterfeit Yard Sale store shut down - generating $150,000 a year in sales with two employees - Phoenix  The counterfeit operation was discovered after a sergeant noticed a couple of large canopies and display tables in the driveway of a home last week. The sergeant saw about 200 items bearing registered trademarks hanging from the canopies and scattered on the tables, according to information from the Phoenix Police Department. The sergeant thought it suspicious that these types of items would be sold in a yard sale environment. According to police, the home was being used as a business location for Maritza's Fashions. The inventory consisted of brand names such as Gucci, Coach, Burberry and Michael Kors. Police said Orozco admitted to making at least $3,000 a week profit, or $150,000 a year, with her enterprise. Police believe that is probably a very conservative figure based on the inventory found at the home. Orozco reportedly had 1,714 items in inventory with a "real" value of nearly $498,000 and nearly $50,000 at her "store" prices. (Source

Fuel Fraud Costing Europe More Than $4 Billion in Lost Taxes annually - Unprecedented cargo theft epidemic  Europe’s black market is adding to hard times for refiners as the lowest demand in two decades saps returns. Smuggling is most prevalent in border areas where price gaps are the widest. Tax evasion in the fuel market has taken the form of organized crime.

TIDE = "Liquid Gold"

UPDATE: San Bernardino ORC Operation busts 25 in retail theft sting - It started with Tide "Liquid Gold" and drug raids  When San Bernardino police detectives would raid houses to search for drugs over the past few years, they couldn’t believe what they kept finding. “The question started coming up, ‘Why are we seeing so much laundry detergent in so many dope houses?’” Sgt. Travis Walker said. Turns out, it wasn't such a strange occurrence. According to the National Retail Federation, laundry detergent is second only behind baby formula as the most-stolen product. Liquid Tide and Tide Pods have become a currency on the black market nationwide. It is traded for drugs or sold far below retail prices at open swap meets and clandestine meetings, law enforcement and retail officials say.

Police in two major Southern California cities, San Bernardino and Riverside, combined efforts to battle a growing concern about organized retail theft in an August 20-21 sting operation that netted 25 arrests. In 2011, local retailers and police formed The Inland Empire Organized Retail Crime Association to showcase trends on shoplifting activities and share information about suspects. The recent sting not only resulted in arrests for the thefts, but also the uncovering of information related to illicit fencing operations, says San Bernardino spokesman Lt. Paul Williams.

One Inland supermarket chain reported each store suffering four to six thefts of Tide per week, with each loss valued at $100 to $400. Several factors have combined to turn the product into what some are calling “liquid gold”: The Tide brand is the most popular, even though it is the highest priced; detergent is relatively easy to steal and, unlike electronic items with serial numbers, is difficult to trace; and shoplifting is a relatively low-risk operation compared to other crimes to make a quick buck. Police said Tide bottles, which retail anywhere between $15 and $18, are often sold for $5 cash or $10 worth of marijuana or crack cocaine. This organized-retail-crime trend is sweeping the country.

Vietnamese credit fraud gang importing "hundreds of thousands of dollars" of U.S. goods - busted - largest of its kind ever busted in Vietnam  Vietnamese police have wrapped up investigations into a credit card fraud gang which allegedly imported a large quantity of goods bought in the US using stolen credit card information from around the world.

He and his accomplices used the information to buy from US online shopping websites like,,, and Long and a Nigerian accomplice set up a website and recruited 20 employees, called “droppers,” in the US. After receiving the goods, the droppers would send them to Vietnam by express delivery service. Their cut was 10 percent of the value of the goods. Long also hired the Hanoi-based Online Export Import Solutions Limited Company run by Nguyen Nam Hai, 27, to receive the goods shipped from the US. Between 2009 and 2013, Long stole around 2,000 credit card accounts, police said. (Source

Sony Launches Affordable, Compact HD Security Cameras

C-Series Cameras Deliver Professional-Grade Features for
Small-to-Midsize Businesses

PARK RIDGE, N.J. – Aug. 26, 2013
Sony Electronics announced today a new line of affordably priced, high-performance security cameras. The high-definition C-Series cameras – models SNC-CX600 and SNC-CX600W – fit a range of security or surveillance applications, especially those for the small-to-midsize business (SMB) market. This includes retailers, offices and restaurants.

“Small- and medium-sized businesses are more interested in security and surveillance than ever before,” said Mark Collett, general manager of Sony Electronics’ Security Systems Division. “However, these customers typically have smaller budgets, so most high-end HD cameras are cost-prohibitive. Our new C-Series cameras are particularly well suited for smaller installations because they offer professional-level features in a small, well-priced camera that is easy to deploy and manage.”

The SNC-CX600 and SNC-CX600W cameras are equipped with many features not typically found in comparably priced products. The cameras include:

720p (HD) image quality for high-resolution imaging
A 120 degree viewing angle rather than the standard 90 degree angle, which reduces the number of cameras needed to cover an area
A built-in motion sensor that works in both light and dark environments
White LED illumination for true-to-life color recording
Edge storage capabilities that reduce costs by recording video and audio directly onto microSD or SDHC cards, bypassing the need for external recorders
Sony’s IPELA ENGINE EX integrated signal processing system that enhances video quality
Wi-Fi certification that enables the stable transmission of video via wireless networks; Improved security and simplified setup using WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)
A speaker that plays alerts or pre-recorded voice messages
A microphone for optional sound capture

The SNC-CX600 and SNC-CX600W both have a list price of $497. Sony plans to make the SNC-CX600W available through its product distribution channel in early September, while the SNC-CX600 is planned for December availability.

Making it new every day and getting energized - pumped up can be difficult at times. But it's important to try to find that spark each and every day to make sure you're adding value, getting things done and motivating the people around you. It's always great to drive home and think - where did the day go because you were so busy and had so many things to get done, which usually means you were pumped up and energized. But it's a terrible feeling when you can't get out of first gear and the day drags on forever. Just remember, oftentimes it's merely mind over matter. You make your own day and, quite frankly, you're also making the day for a lot of people around you. They're looking to you to set the pace.
