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
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.
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

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

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

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
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.
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%.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
TX: Fake Walmart employee walks out of Grapevine store with big-screen TVs
A thief masquerading as a Walmart employee walked out of Grapevine store last
month with four big-screen TVs. 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.
WI: Burglar with Axe makes off with $5,000 worth of electronics; suspect in

Surveillance video shows a burglar breaking into the Greenfield Target store in

Police said he got more than $5,000 worth of electronics. Weeks later, Target
security was ready. 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. Court records show Murry had just gotten out of prison after
serving four years for using yard tools to break in to Target stores to steal
electronics, including the Brown Deer store near his home, which he hit three

Secret told police that over $500 of merchandise was stolen the night before
from a floor display, a large area of which an employee noticed was empty. The
employee told police that the bras taken were all the small size, and similar to
an unreported theft that occurred at the store 10 days before. That theft was
not reported because it was under the $500 threshold for company policy for
reporting a theft.

Lincoln Park, MI: Two men use fake credit card for $1,300 in Gift Cards at
Wendy's Lincoln Park police are asking for the public's help
identifying two men wanted in connection to credit card fraud at Wendy's. Two
men told the employee who sold them gift cards that they were both basketball
coaches and their team had just won the championship, so each of their 18
players were being rewarded with $100 Wendy's gift cards. Only 13 gift cards
were available for purchase. The men reportedly used a Mastercard credit card to
pay for the 13 gift cards in two $500 increments and one $300 increment. Wendy's
management later told detectives that the man had valid identification and a
signature that matched the name and signature on the credit card.
Longview, TX: Two Shoplifters arrested for Robbery after fight with Home Depot
Loss Prevention Two suspects in a Longview robbery have been arrested
after attacking store employees with various items, including a steel pipe. Gary
L. Nelson, 47, of Longview, and Bobby Ervin Nickoles, 43, of Longview, were
charged with robbery in connection with the incident. When officers arrived,
store employees told police that a man, later identified as Nelson, had taken a
large amount of items from the store. When he attempted to leave, a loss
prevention associate confronted him, and Nelson struck the employee with a tube
of caulking. A fight ensued, police say, and a second male, identified as
Nickoles, 43, got out of a vehicle and struck another employee. He then ran back
to the car and attempted to leave. However, Nelson was still fighting with
employees and police say Nickoles then got out of his car and threatened
employees with a steel pipe.
PA: 'I Need The Money More Than You Do': Armed Man to an Advanced Auto Parts
Employee Those are the desperate words police say an armed man uttered
during the robbery of an auto parts store in Philadelphia. The incident happened
about 8:50 p.m. on August 14 at the Advanced Auto Parts store located at 2210
Island Avenue. Investigators say the suspect entered the store, pulled out a
handgun from his waistband and told an employee to "open the register." The
employee then walked with the suspect to the back of the store where a second
employee was counting money. The suspect said to the employees "I need the money
more than you do" and took $2,500 from the desk and drawer.
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. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
reported that the man told a store clerk that he had a gun. That's when a
customer took action. "He noticed something was kinda strange about the person.
Moved to the side and the suspect had his hands inside his pockets. The suspect
told the clerk he had a gun and wanted money. At that point, he and the customer
got into a scuffle," said Lt. Terrance James. "Because he believed he had a gun,
(the customer) pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed him." The man held the
suspect until police arrived, then the suspect was transported to a hospital and
treated for superficial stab wound.
Monroe, NC: Police looking for person who backed stolen car into two stores
Police say the driver backed the car into the stores around to break and enter

Interacting in large networking groups can be very challenging even for the most
seasoned of executives. The speed, the number of people, and the amount of
information shared can be overwhelming. However, the one basic principal you can
rely on is keep it simple, one person at a time and focus on that person both
mentally and visually. Slow it down in your head and make sure you communicate
clearly and sincerely regardless of the background you have with anyone or any
group. Because at the end of the day you're all part of the same industry, the
same community, and everyone has the same objective: to help develop and
represent the industry as professionals.
