TycoIS Wins Long Battle and Recovers Expenses
Insurer, Tyco Reach Agreement On Fees Over $60M Drug Heist

National Union Fire Insurance Co. of Pittsburgh and Tyco Integrated Security LLC agreed Wednesday to settle a dispute in Florida federal court over attorneys' fees that Tyco requested after a jury decided it wasn't liable for a $60 million Prozac and Zyprexa theft from an Eli Lilly warehouse.

The parties told the court in a filing they had settled "all claims related to the pending dispute over entitlement and reasonableness of Tyco's motions for fees and costs." As part of the deal, National Union agreed to release "any and all potential appellate rights."

After a jury in April said Tyco, which provided security at Eli Lilly and Co.'s warehouse in Enfield, Connecticut, was not liable for the 2010 burglary, Tyco requested attorneys' fees, arguing that under Florida's offer of judgment statute, it is entitled to reasonable attorneys' fees and costs because it won a complete defense verdict. Tyco had offered to settle in May 2015, but National Union never responded.

The company also said that under Eleventh Circuit precedent, because it won summary judgment on National Union's claim under the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, it should be able to recover fees devoted not just to the claim under that act but to the entire suit. law360.com

Walmart's crime problem keeps police busy in Charlotte
Bloomberg Article Continues It's Nationwide Impact

Since Jan. 1, there has been a total service time of 1,567 hrs spent at a total of 11 different WalMarts, CMPD said. On average (county-wide), our officers are spending 196 hrs per month at WalMarts.

Walmart is working with the cities to try to stop the trend.

Walmart statement: "In the coming weeks and months, we will continue our increased outreach to law enforcement across the country, as part of our ongoing commitment to meet our customers' and associates' expectations of a safe and enjoyable shopping experience. The importance of this issue is recognized at the highest levels of the company and we are investing in people and technology to support our stores."

Some examples of current programs:
More at the Door Program to bolster door presence and check receipts if appropriate
Customer hosts dedicated to self-check-out areas
Restorative Justice program which reduces police calls to stores
Increased technologies used at point of sale and on sales floor to prevent crimes
Overall emphasis on improving store experience includes more associates on the sales floor wsoctv.com

CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson on Record Violence
Chicago just ended its deadliest month in 20 years, with 90 murdered and hundreds shot. What is the solution to gun violence problem, and is everyone on the same page?

August was the deadliest month since October of 1996, according to the Chicago Police Department, highlighted by the shooting death of Nykea Aldridge, a cousin of NBA star Dwayne Wade.

A study Sheriff Tom Dart conducted over a six-week period this year concludes that judges rarely follow risk assessment guidelines when assigning bond, and that those with gun related charges bond out 25 percent of the time. Compare that to retail theft charges, a much lesser crime - only 4 percent bond out. wtt.com

The Aftershocks of Terrorism on Luxury Shopping
Summer tourists spent little cash in Europe's top shopping establishments in '16

As summer draws to a close and the traditional tourist season peters out in Europe, a downturn in luxury sales over the past year is forcing many top brands into a re-think. Prada recently reported its first major decline in opening-half sales since its 2011 citing terrorism as one of the main culprits. Hermes and Louis Vuitton have also reported weakening sales in the past year.

While on the surface, the dip may not seem drastic, the finer details are discomforting for a market based largely on visiting trade. Europe houses nearly half of the major fashion capitals of the world in cities including Paris, Rome, Berlin, and Milan. The top ten fashion capitals in the world account for about one fifth of all luxury points of sale.

"Terrorism is active on Europe's shores, with major atrocities having already taken place in luxury shopping hot spots like Paris and the Cotes d 'Azure." Fflur Roberts, Head of Luxury Goods at London-based market research and intelligence firm, Euromonitor International told the Observer. "The European transport and tourism infrastructure has also been a key target for bombings and attacks. Such events have an immediate impact on tourism and subsequently on luxury spending, with short, sharp declines felt in the aftermath." observer.com

 

'We're going bankrupt and we can't pay any bills - so don't bother asking,
Hanjin Bankruptcy Could Cause "Chaos" - Retailers worried

The bankruptcy of the Hanjin shipping line has thrown ports and retailers around the world into confusion, with giant container ships marooned and merchants worrying whether tons of goods will reach their shelves.

The South Korean giant filed for bankruptcy protection on Wednesday and stopped accepting new cargo. With its assets being frozen, ships from China to Canada found themselves refused permission to offload or take aboard containers because there were no guarantees that tugboat pilots or stevedores would be paid.

"Hanjin called us and said: 'We're going bankrupt and we can't pay any bills - so don't bother asking,' " said J. Kip Louttit, executive director of the Marine Exchange of Southern California, which provides traffic control for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the nation's busiest port complex.

National Retail Federation Pleads For "Working Together"
Global Shipper Hanjin - Bankruptcy could disrupt holiday shelves

The National Retail Federation today issued the following statement from Vice President for Supply Chain and Customs Policy Jonathan Gold in response to this week's bankruptcy filing by Hanjin Shipping: "Retailers' main concern is that there is millions of dollars worth of merchandise that needs to be on store shelves that could be impacted by this. Some of it is sitting in Asia waiting to be loaded on ships, some is already aboard ships out on the ocean and some is sitting on U.S. docks waiting to be picked up. It is understandable that port terminal operators, railroads, trucking companies and others don't want to do work for Hanjin if they are concerned they won't get paid. However, we need all parties to work together to find solutions to move this cargo so it does not have a broader impact on the economy. businesswire.com 
 

RILA Urges Federal Action to Prevent Significant Cargo Disruptions
In a letter sent today, the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) urged action in response to the bankruptcy of Hanjin, a major South Korea based shipping company, to ensure the flow of cargo to and from the United States. Specifically, RILA asked U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and Federal Maritime Commission Chairman Mario Cordero to use their powers to work with stakeholders to resolve the developing situation. Hanjin Shipping, which represents approximately 7.8% of the transpacific trade volume for the U.S. market, declared bankruptcy yesterday. rila.org

Instacart's app has changed grocery stores for good
Home Delivery is Making an Impact

The startup secures exclusive lanes in grocery stores to which it sends a high volume of orders, and staffs them with a "CBT" (cashier-bagger-tagger).

Instacart's shoppers - who pick up all the items that customers order online, then pay for and pack them before delivery - breeze through Instacart-only express lanes at stores like Costco, Whole Foods and regional groceries like Mollie Stone's, Andronico's or Bi-Rite in San Francisco.

Eventually, Instacart wants to offer a "bypass checkout" feature to its personal shoppers, and eventually to anyone who uses the Instacart app. This would let shoppers simply skip the register and instead scan and pay for items from their own phones.  techcrunch.com

Huge Whaling Attack Pays Off
Update: How One Of Europe's Biggest Company Fell To An Online Email Scam Causing $44 Million Loss

Leoni AG, Europe's biggest manufacturer of wires and electrical cables and the fourth-largest vendor in the world, announced earlier in August that it had fallen victim to an online scam and had lost $44.6 million, as one of its chief financial officer was duped into transferring this amount to the wrong bank account.

After two weeks of investigation, it has been found out that the attackers simply spoofed emails to appear like official payment requests, a method known as "a whaling attack, CEO fraud or business email compromise." They then proceeded to send them to a satellite at the Leoni factory in Bistrita, northern Romania, where about 6,000 people work. It is said to have been made to a bank in the Czech Republic, although investigators have not yet identified the scammers.

The fraudulent messages were then received and handled by one of the company's financial officers, who believed it to be an email from one of the company's top executives in Germany and later proceeded to honour all the invoices, paying out $44 million in the process. Even large payments were often made this way, as the system was considered extremely safe, reported the employees.

Leoni is the second company to fall for such a classic email scam this year. Earlier in 2016, toy manufacturer Mattel came close to losing $3 million in a phishing campaign. techworm.com

The (Unfriendly) Fraudster Lurking Next Door
With data breaches on the rise and online merchants constantly under threat, retailers may assume the most dangerous fraud attacks are coming at them from the faceless, nameless bad guys all over the world.

True. But cybercriminals are far from only the faceless, nameless group performing their illicit activities from the dark corners of the Earth. In fact, in certain cases, those who are geographically closest to a merchant can be the toughest to combat and among the most dangerous.

Fraudsters are as unique as fingerprints, it seems. Each have their own personalities and characteristics and apply their craft very differently to the online merchant world.

Local fraudsters - the ones that happen to be in the same country or even the same state of the merchants they are looking to scheme - can be a huge challenge to fraud systems.

One method of attack by these unfriendly local fraudsters is trying to buy as many products as possible in order to quickly resell them, even if that means doing so from the back of a van somewhere, she added.

And though local fraudsters may not always be the most sophisticated, they still have a huge advantage in the form of resources and tools available to them.

Every merchant has unique vulnerabilities.

For some, the unfriendly local fraudster can be the most dangerous type of cyberthreat, while others face a bigger risk from more sophisticated fraudsters.

But Saporta noted that both fashion, as well as electronic and gadget retailers, are repeatedly attacked by domestic fraudsters who are "very serious in their intention to succeed."

Though there may always be specific red flags associated with unauthorized transactions, in order to detect unfriendly local fraudster attacks, merchants need to keep an eye out for unusual bulk purchases.

To do this, it helps if merchants have a very clear picture of the legitimate behavior characterizing good customers on their website so that a reseller or an affiliate program isn't mistaken for a local fraudster.

The biggest risk when it comes to this fraudster persona, Saporta explained, is if merchants miss out on an opportunity when they see a rise in sales and site traffic because of the possibility that the increase in orders could possibly be fraudulent. pymnts.com

eCommerce Checkout Times Reduced Dramatically in Q3 2016
The collaborative study with BlueSnap the latest PYMNTS.com Checkout Conversion Index (CCI)., measures the amount of friction customers experience when they shop online. It does this by identifying the website and payment attributes that are most likely to cause problems during the eCommerce checkout process that result in abandoned shopping carts and lost revenue.

In the first quarter, the range between the top and bottom performing merchants was 131 seconds
to finalize a purchase, according to the Index. However, the difference has narrowed over time,
decreasing to 48 seconds in the third quarter of 2016. The biggest contributing factor was a dramatic improvement in reduced friction during the pre-payment process.  constantcontact.com
