Interpol Battles Bitcoin Crime With Own Cryptocurrency
No matter how hard mainstream bitcoin enthusiasts work to give the digital
currency a good name, there's always going to be another bitcoin criminal to
slander its reputation. And with more transactions going online - bitcoin
included - it's getting harder to keep up with the pace of cybercrime. That's
why INTERPOL created an international anti-cybercrime center to develop its own
digital currency to help battle crime that's committed using cryptocurrencies
like bitcoin. Known as the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), which
opened last month in Singapore, the facility marks the organization's first
foray into an official center to research cybersecurity issues. INTERPOL also
plans to use its own technology to develop a digital currency to be used for
testing purposes. Because bitcoin, digital currency and cybercrime matters are
getting increasingly more difficult to tackle for authorities, having help from
the private sector might generate some real-world solution to tackle the
security matters that impact both the private and public sectors.
Consumers using e-commerce to shop the world
UPS' most recent "Pulse of the Online Shopper" survey, conducted by comScore,
says that the web continues to break down borders worldwide. Among respondents
who said they make at two or more online purchases in a typical three-month
period, 24% went to sites outside their home countries to shop-and half those
sites were in the United States. In the U.S. 54% of shoppers have bought from a
foreign site. UPS says that shipping across borders is set to explode in the
next five years, growing to $330 billion by 2020 from $80 billion in 2014.
Fraudsters increasingly use credentials stolen from data breaches
Digital identities are being exploited on a routine basis by sophisticated
cybercriminals, a new study shows. The report unveils that increasingly
sophisticated attackers were increasingly targeting diverse data sets to
effectively stitch together consumers' credentials. And new account creation
continued to be at high risk as fraudsters use stolen credentials harvested from
massive breaches. Further, fraudsters were either replaying stolen identities
using proxies, device and location spoofing to cloak a true digital identity or
piggy-backing on top of users' session with malware or man-in-the-middle

Vegas, NV: Declined debit card at Toys R Us leads to ID theft ring
Toys may be more than child's play, according to the U.S. Postal Service. A
purchase at Toys R Us helped to bring down this ID theft ring. "He went to use a
fraudulent credit card at a Toys R Us," said U.S. Postal Inspector Adam Fascio.
"The purchase was declined; however, I guess he really liked what he was buying
because he took out his personal debit card and bought the goods anyway." Postal
inspectors were able to link the declined card and the personal debit card to
track the ID thieves. Chase Bank recognized a pattern of fraudulent accounts
being opened. "Someone was opening up credit cards and taking over people's
existing credit card accounts," Fascio said. The credit cards linked to those
accounts were being sent to the same New York address. "Turned out that it was a
vacant apartment," Fascio said. "However, this particular building, to get in,
you needed an electronic ID card." From surveillance tape, investigators were
able to identify two of the three suspects in this case. Sixty victims had their
accounts compromised, with more than $60,000 in damages.

Jewelry Store Robberies - Dallas Task Force Helps Put Violent Criminals Behind
Bars Two Texas men who committed violent jewelry store robberies in
the Dallas/Fort Worth area were recently sentenced to lengthy prison terms
thanks to an FBI-led task force that helped bring them to justice. The case is a
classic example of local and federal law enforcement officers working together
to make their communities safer. For a seven-month period between 2013 and 2014,
Michael Demon Jackson and Mark D. Whitfield robbed numerous jewelry stores at
gunpoint, in part to feed their heroin habits. Last May, after pleading guilty
to the crimes, Jackson was sentenced to 594 months in federal prison, just shy
of 50 years. In June, Whitfield received a 309-month prison term.
The pair targeted jewelry stores in shopping malls without good security and
where female sales clerks worked alone. Whitfield would enter the store
pretending to be a customer interested in making a purchase. When the clerk
opened the display case, Jackson came in brandishing a gun. He would push the
clerks to the ground, put the gun to the back of their heads, and threaten to
kill them," said Noe Camacho, a Dallas Police Department detective on the task
force. "It was very traumatic for the victims."

12 Busted by Somerset County Prosecutor's Office in Alleged 'Gypsy Travelers'

Baltimore, MD: Howard County Police strike against Tractor Trailer theft ring
With the conviction of a Brooklyn Park man on theft and burglary charges last
week, prosecutors said that the Howard County Police Department has put a major
dent in a tractor trailer theft ring that operated in Howard and surrounding

for its tires, parts and scrap metal.

Looking at one's career should be viewed as a long-term
investment tool that maximizes the individual's return on their efforts. Similar
to any other investment strategy, a career is the building blocks for
retirement. However, as most studies show, job satisfaction and recognition is
as important and in some studies more important than monetary rewards. So how
one reaches a balance is the key and making sure you challenge yourself about
them periodically is wise.
