Credit-Card Fraudsters Pump Gas Stations for Profit - It's an 'Epidemic'
Payment-card companies and gas-station operators combat a wave of theft. As motorists head out on the last big driving weekend of the summer, the credit-card industry and gas-station owners are deploying everything from sophisticated software to heavy-duty padlocks to combat an epidemic of fuel-related theft and fraud.

The crackdown is gaining additional momentum because many gas stations will be among the last merchants to install equipment accepting a new generation of fraud-resistant cards. While many big merchants will have equipment in place by Oct. 1 to accept the new chip-based cards, tougher guidelines set by Visa Inc. V 0.96 % and MasterCard Inc. MA 1.55 % don't apply to gas stations until 2017.

That delay could exacerbate what analysts, card companies and law-enforcement officials say has been a recent surge in fraud at the pump. Gas stations make easy targets for those who want to make fraudulent purchases using stolen numbers, since pumps are usually unattended. From skimming devices to "bladder trucks" fraud and theft at gas stations is at epidemic levels.  wsj.com

Dramatic rise in crime casts a shadow on downtown L.A.'s gentrification - Property Crime Up 25% - Violent Crime Up 57%  Overall, violent crime in the Los Angeles Police Department's Central Division, which covers parts of downtown, skid row and Chinatown, was up more than 57% through the end of August compared with the same period last year, and property offenses increased nearly 25%, according to police data. Organized crews lift unattended purses or smartphones from tables at cafes. Police say they are working to reverse the trend downtown.

The busy stretch of 5th Street between skid row and Pershing Square is a pipeline for drug dealers and people looking to score. Merchandise is frequently stolen from the shelves of markets and clothing stores. Fights break out on the sidewalk in the middle of the afternoon. The three-block area known as "the corridor" saw the biggest property crime rise in Central during the first half of the year, tripling to 86 offenses, while there were four times as many violent crimes.

At 5th Street and Broadway - just a block from the foodie haven of Grand Central Market - a loss prevention worker for Fallas Paredes said shoplifters steal from the clothing retailer several times a week, sometimes getting away with $50 worth of merchandise or more at a time. latimes.com

As police move to adopt body cams, storage costs set to skyrocket
The police department in Birmingham, Ala. has seen a 71% drop in citizen complaints -- and a 38% drop in use of force by officers -- since deploying 319 body cameras two months ago. There's been little focus on the larger ecosystem needed to make the cameras useful, including potentially high storage costs -- petabytes of video are now being uploaded annually -- and file management concerns. "That's the biggest problem with this system...the cost of the storage," Brewer said. "They do offer unlimited storage, but it's quite costly -- well above $1 million for the package we had looked at."  cio.com

Mastercard's attorney admits to using opposing counsels info in $7b deal with retailers on interchange fees - indicted for fraud  A lawyer who represented Mastercard Inc. admitted in a New York federal court filing late Tuesday that she used information from opposing counsel in a $7.25 billion deal to settle multidistrict litigation over Mastercard, Visa Inc. and other banks' interchange fees. Keila Ravelo, a former Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP partner and counsel for Mastercard, said in a sworn affidavit that she used information passed to her by longtime friend Gary Friedman, who represented some retailers in related litigation.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Amazon.com Inc., Target Corp., The Home Depot USA Inc. and other major retailers asked the court in July to reopen and overturn the deal Visa, MasterCard and several banks reached with retailers challenging fees charged to process credit card transactions. The issue arose after Ravelo was arrested in December along with her husband, Melvin Feliz, and charged with defrauding Willkie.  law360.com

A&P supermarket laying off 3,781 employees effective Thanksgiving Day - Nov. 26th in 45 N.J. stores  Earlier, A&P filed 867 layoff notices in July with an effective date of Sept. 19 for eight New Jersey locations. In all, the number of employees affected in the state could exceed 4,600. To date, Stop & Shop, Acme Markets and Key Food plan to purchase 120 of the bankrupt A&P's 296 stores with the balance of the stores now up for sale... theshelbyreport.com

Judge urges A&P to boost severance
A federal bankruptcy judge urged A&P to increase severance pay for laid-off workers to 52%, rather than the 25% offer, later raised to 50%, the company has proposed. Judge Robert Drain also said laid-off employees should qualify for an additional severance payment of 10% over the 52%, depending on the outcome of store sales and other issues.  supermarketnews.com

Kmart pays $1.4 million Medicare settlement

Women in Security at the Forefront of (ISC)2 Security Congress 2015
(ISC)2 CEO David Shearer says, "According to our latest study, women only make up 11 percent of the global information security workforce. That number is staggeringly low considering the wealth of job opportunities available and the forecasted deficit in the workforce at 1.5 million by 2020. We have a clear call to action to raise awareness that women signify an underrepresented minority group in this industry.
(ISC)2 remains committed through research, collaboration and partnerships to help identify other underrepresented minority groups within the industry that are also a talent source for addressing the workforce shortage. The impressive lineup of female leaders speaking at Security Congress will take a deeper look at this issue to offer advice and solutions for the future of information security."

ISC)2; announced its dedicated women in security sessions, general session speaker, and ASIS Women in Security Council Reception taking place during the co-located (ISC)2 Security Congress and ASIS International 61st Annual Seminar and Exhibits events September 28 - October 1 in Anaheim, Ca. securityhive.com

Court: FTC can take action on corporate data breaches - They're about to get a lot more expensive  The US Court of Appeals has ruled that the FTC mandate to protect consumers against fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices extends to oversight of corporate cybersecurity efforts -- and lapses. Specifically, last week's decision allowed the FTC to take action against Wyndham Hotels and Resorts for failing to reasonably protect consumers' personal information between 2008 and 2010, when hackers broke in three times and stole more than 600,000 bank card numbers.

Together with another court decision this summer allowing class action lawsuits against breached companies, this ruling means that data breaches are about to get a lot more expensive.  csoonline.com

Finance and HR Staff Labeled Biggest Security Risks
Finance and HR employees represent the biggest cybersecurity threat to organizations of any department, according to new research from security firm Clearswift. The messaging and web security vendor polled 500 data security specialists in the UK, US, Germany and Australia to compile its findings. Nearly half (48%) of respondents claimed finance departments and their employees posed the biggest threat, versus 42% for HR.

The main reason for their answers was the fear of staff members in these roles accidentally sending customer details or salaries to the wrong people, or accidentally allowing malware to be installed on machines. Just 16% said they thought those working in legal represented the biggest threat, indicating that HR and finance employees are thought to be culturally less attuned to cybersecurity risk.

Middle management (37%) was pegged as the highest risk group, compared with just 19% who thought senior managers were the biggest threat, and 12% for execs/admins. Interestingly over two-thirds (67%) of respondents claimed that those working in the office represented a bigger data security risk than those off-site - primarily because they have easier access to the data.

Loudhouse polled over 500 information technology decision makers and 4000 employees to determine that male, office-based middle managers in the finance department are viewed as most likely to present an internal security threat, accidental or malicious, by their employers. businesswire.com  infosecurity-magazine.com

Small Businesses Are Slow to Embrace New Chip-Card System
Many small businesses aren't racing to update their checkout systems ahead of an Oct. 1 shift that will put merchants on the hook for some fraudulent card charges. Losses tied to counterfeit cards are expected to hit a record $3.6 billion this year, estimates Aite Group, a financial services research firm, from $1.7 billion in 2011. Banks that issue credit cards currently cover these charges. About 10% of U.S. small businesses were victims of payment fraud, including the type of credit-card fraud the switch aims to prevent, in 2013.

Many small businesses aren't switching, mainly because they don't know about the shift or don't see any payoff from the new systems, which are slightly slower. Nearly two-thirds of companies with 500 or fewer employees say they aren't ready for the October switch versus 44% of larger merchants, with more than 1,000 employees, according to a survey of 579 businesses to be released later this month by the Ponemon Institute, a research firm.

Even after the shift, small businesses may not be held responsible for some small purchases made with counterfeit cards, said Carolyn Balfany, a senior vice president with MasterCard Inc., noting that card issuers often don't pass on liability for high-volume, low-risk transactions where merchants aim to keep lines moving, such as fast food and cups of coffee.

The switch-over won't solve all payment fraud. In the U.K., losses due to counterfeit cards fell by 56% between 2005 and 2013, after chip-enabled cards were rolled out, according to Aite Group, but online fraud jumped by 64%. wsj.com

PayPal Launches Quick & Easy Millennial-Friendly Payment Service
On Tuesday, PayPal announced a new service called PayPal.me, designed to add some modern functionality to its old-by-Internet-standards payment platform. The new offering takes a page from Venmo, the mobile payment app popular with millennials that PayPal acquired last year. PayPal.me looks to bridge the gap between ultra-casual Venmo and old-fashioned PayPal by making it extremely easy for users to request money without using a mobile app or logging into PayPal's website. PayPal.me caters to slightly more mature users by having them directly send the request themselves from their own email or phone number. It also requires the person completing the link to remember the nature and amount of the debt in question, though a person could request a specific amount by sharing a link with a number at the end, separated by a slash. "Paypal.me/barackobama/25" for example. But the link isn't specific to the person, and the service doesn't even know if a request has been sent. A person's PayPal.me address is nothing more than a dropbox. time.com

Online shoppers still harbor security concerns
A sense of security takes top priority for nearly one quarter of shoppers polled, when evaluating whether to purchase goods from a retailer online, according to a new global survey of 3,500 customers conducted. For one-quarter of online shoppers polled, seeing payment authentication and digital certificate logos displayed prominently on a retail site's homepage is the single most reassuring element in the purchasing process. Forty-six per cent of consumers globally admit this would help address their concerns. Shoppers also want security transparency around just how retailers store personal and payment details. Thirty-one per cent of shoppers worldwide said they do not wish for a retail website to store their payment details. enterpriseinnovation.net

E-commerce gets real with patent 8,788,445
In what appears to be a victory over Internet bots that troll web sites and distort user data, Certona said its newest patent, U.S. Patent No. 8,788,445, titled, "System and Method for Quantifying and Detecting Non-Normative Behavior," will help retailers offer a better e-commerce experience. Certona said its patented technology addresses the critical need to combat Internet bot activity by weeding out irregular Web and mobile traffic, indicated by structurally repetitive behavior and confusion from site navigation and path analysis. Retailers can then automatically capture, flag and sequester irregular activity from certain segments; thereby maintaining a high fidelity in the data used to personalize a brand's customer experiences. retailingtoday.com

White Plains, NY: Federal Agents bust Cargo Thieves- 1,200 Apple Computers stolen, valued at over $1M  Four men, including three from Yorktown Heights, have been charged with participating in a scheme to steal, transport and sell a shipment of 1,200 Apple MacBook Air laptops worth over $1 million and selling them for cash. The units are worth about $1,000 each and the crooks were selling them for $500 to $800. Federal Pprosecutors said on Wednesday, they knew the stolen truck story did not add up. Anton Saljanin and his brother drove a truck from Yorktown Heights to a technology company in Massachusetts to pick up a shipment of roughly 1,200 Apple computers. The computers were being shipped to two public high schools in New Jersey. The men drove the truck to the home of a long-time friend, Ujka Vulaj where it is alleged the computers were off-loaded. A fourth man, Carlos Caceres and Vulaj allegedly sold the computers illegally. nytimes.com

Miami, FL: Seven Arrested In Credit Card Fraud Busts; believe to be making $20-30,000 per week  Undercover detectives arrested seven people in connection with a credit card fraud ring during two overnight raids. A husband and wife were taken into custody at a home in southwest Miami-Dade. Detectives say they found 65 stolen credit cards, $5,000 dollars in cash and a gun. "We have over 60 to 65 counterfeit credit cards here, those are 60 to 65 victims that their identity was stolen or their credit card information was stolen and it's being used by these individuals to go out and make purchases," said Detective Marcos Rodriguez. Earlier in the night, police arrested five other people at a home in Westchester, where they recovered dozens of credit cards, cash and merchandise. Police believe they were using the stolen cards to buy merchandise and re-sell it at a fraction of the cost. Detectives believe the group was making about $20 to $30-thousand dollars a week. cbslocal.com

Police are asking for help catching the man who stole the Samsung televisions Aug. 8. Wearing a vest and employee badge, the suspect went straight to the stockroom, loaded up a hand truck with thousands of dollars worth of smart TVs and walked out to an SUV and an accomplice waiting outside. "He knows what he's going after," Grapevine police Sgt. Robert Eberling said. "He pretty much committed the identical offense" at a Walmart in Bedford a week later. In fact, Eberling says, the department has heard from a number of other agencies around North Texas who have seen similar thefts. dallasnews.com

Greenfield, WI: Burglar with Axe makes off with $5,000 worth of electronics; suspect in multiple burglaries  Police said he would break in late at night, wielding a yard tool.

They were watching cameras at corporate headquarters when they spotted a burglar inside the Menomonee Falls Target. Target security called police, who arrested Quinton Murry, 24, as he left the scene. They said they found six iPads and one Xbox in his car. It turns out this wasn't Murry's first trip to Target.

Jacksonville, FL: Customer stops attempted Walgreens robbery
A Navy veteran stopped a man from robbing a Walgreens on Normandy Boulevard at Memorial Park Road early Thursday morning.
