The Great American Fake Rip-Off Continues
Walmart Offering Full Refunds on Welspun's Egyptian Cotton Sheets

Walmart is no longer selling Welspun's line of premium Egyptian cotton bed sheets after its supplier was unable to prove the sheets weren't knockoffs. Less than a month after Target announced it would offer customers refunds for more than $90 million in Welspun's Egyptian cotton sheets, Walmart said it is also pulling Egyptian cotton Welspun sheets from its shelves and offering refunds, reports Bloomberg.

"Our customers trust us to provide products that are what they say they are on the label," Walmart spokesperson Marilee McInnis said in an e-mail to Bloomberg on Friday. "Welspun has not been able to assure us the products are 100 percent Egyptian cotton, which is unacceptable. While the sheets are excellent quality, we are offering our customers a full refund."

Any customer seeking a refund can bring their Welspun 100% Egyptian-cotton sheets, tags off of the sheets, or receipts into a Walmart location to receive a refund.

J.C. Penny and Bed Bath & Beyond are also investigating the credibility of their Welspun Egyptian cotton products. businessinsider.com
Wells Fargo was flowing with regrets on Friday
Largest Consumer Protection Fine In History
But Doesn't Admit Misconduct Nor Has To

Taking out ads in nearly a dozen newspapers saying the bank took "full responsibility" for creating sham bank accounts without its customers' permission.

The bank's chief executive officer, John Stumpf, even called one prominent Democrat in Congress to express his willingness to assume personal responsibility for the mess. The bank fired at least 5,300 employees and refunded millions of dollars to customers.

But with its banking regulators, Wells Fargo was not as contrite. The bank agreed to pay $185 million in fines and hire an independent consultant to review its sales practices, but it was able to settle the investigation into the questionable accounts without officially admitting to any of the suspected misconduct.  nytimes.com

CA Security Bag-Check OT Lawsuit against Nike Certified as a Class Action
An overtime play laws complaint against Nike Retail Service Inc. (Nike) has been certified as a class action in California after a federal judge, on August 19, gave her blessing. The crux of the lawsuit is time waiting for security checks upon the completion of a shift, time for which the employee is not paid, or so it is alleged. lawyersandsettlements.com

The Impact Safety Can Have
Post E. coli Chipotle Same-Store Sales Continue to Plummet
Down 23.6% in Most Recent Qt.

Chipotle has settled legal cases with nearly 100 customers who got sick after eating there. Since March, the chain has agreed to financial settlements - meaning the customers got cash - in 96 cases, the Denver Post reports.

The cases stemmed from a series of outbreaks involving E. coli, salmonella, and norovirus at Chipotle restaurants in cities nationwide. The outbreaks are collectively responsible for sickening at least 500 people.

Editor's Note: Four outbreaks in two years. The top marketing officer arrested in a NYC cocaine sweep this summer - where he was having his home delivered. Millions spent on building a safety department. With two or three safety executives, closing the stores for a nationwide training day, establishing a hotline reward system for employees to report if anyone comes to work sick, reviewing and establishing criteria for every single supplier, giving away food, and trying to make safety a priority - and it still hasn't worked.

Now they are getting desperate. They've announced they're opening a hamburger restaurant. Just last week they were being criticized for making sexual and marijuana oriented inappropriate tweets while claiming to be a place for kids and being called out for it. And to top all that, the stock markets #1 activist buys almost 10% of the stock last week because they're all company owned stores and there's a fortune to be made if they take them franchise. What a snowball that safety created.

Eating there recently showed a line of young people - most not wearing gloves, certainly no hair nets. Nothing blatant or even obvious but a little to close for this eater.

Nothing for nothing but this might be one you may wish to consider buying stock in. Merely because the activist will force them to go franchise and that'll drive up the price short term. The issue will be knowing when to dump them. But if you lose, don't come screaming at this writer. Just a thought. businessinsider.com

Curtailing Supply Chain Risks of Seafood Fraud
Seafood Industry's 25% Fraud

A report that found one in five fish tested world-wide was mislabeled shows the problem of seafood fraud remains real for buyers, and points out issues those companies need to be aware of as they try to rid their supply chains of improperly labeled, illegally caught and fraudulently substituted fish. Oceana also is asking President Barack Obama to expand upon proposed rules his administration submitted earlier this year that seeks to require traceability for 13 types of seafood from the fishing boat or farm to the U.S. border. wsj.com

NYC Retailer Crazy Eddie Founder & Felon Dies at 68 
Smuggled Money Taped to His Body to Israel

Eddie Antar, the Brooklyn-born man who created the chain of Crazy Eddie electronics stores only to watch it collapse when an underlying fraud was exposed, died on Saturday. He was 68.

Mr. Antar, who was born on Dec. 18, 1947, grew his business from a single Brooklyn store, founded in 1969, into the largest consumer electronics chain in the New York metropolitan area, fueled in large part by the spread of the VCR. At its peak, the chain had 43 stores, with locations as far north as Boston and as far south as Philadelphia.

In 1984, Mr. Antar took the business public at $8 a share. Within two years, its stock price would hit $79 per share. At its peak, Crazy Eddie reported annual sales of more than $350 million. But that success was illusory. In 1987, dissident stockholders staged a takeover of the company. Within two weeks of the acquisition, they said they had discovered that $45 million in merchandise was missing.

In the end, the authorities accused him and two brothers of skimming cash and inflating the value of the company. Even before going public, Mr. Antar would fly to Israel with cash strapped to his body as part of the skimming scheme, they said.

In 1990, Mr. Antar fled the country. He was found and arrested in Israel two years later, then extradited to the United States and spent 7 years in federal prison. nytimes.com

Wal-Mart Appeals NLRB Ruling On In-Store Protest
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is appealing a recent National Labor Relations Board decision that found it violated federal labor law when it disciplined six workers who engaged in a work stoppage inside a California store.

The big-box retailer filed a petition Wednesday with the D.C. Circuit, seeking review of the NLRB's 2-1 decision on Aug. 27 that held the "small, brief, peaceful and confined" work stoppage was protected under the National Labor Relations Act. The board said it was a violation for Wal-Mart to issue the workers disciplinary warnings afterwards.  law360.com

Gap Distribution Center Fire "Intentionally Set"
Authorities say a massive blaze that ripped through a Gap Inc. distribution center in New York was intentionally set.

State police said Tuesday that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives determined the origin of the fire was "incendiary." No other details have been released. State police and the ATF continue to investigate.

The fire late last Monday caused heavy damage to part of the Fishkill facility about 50 miles north of New York City.

Some of the distribution center's 1,300 employees were scheduled to return to work this week in other sections of the sprawling warehouse complex. nypost.com

Experian Data Breach Resolution releases
2016-2017 Data Breach Response Guide

Companies are establishing response plans more than ever before, and senior leadership is also becoming more involved in data breach preparedness, according to Experian Data Breach Resolution's 2015 data breach preparedness study. Despite this increased awareness and preparedness, however, many companies are forgetting the vital step of regularly reviewing and updating their strategy once their initial plan is established.

To make sure companies are prepared with well-rounded, updated plans, Experian's annual Data Breach Response Guide has been refreshed to focus on the importance of regularly updating a response plan. In addition, this year's guide includes new content regarding the importance of looking outside of one's own organization when creating a response plan and engaging essential external partners that can offer specific expertise in the face of a breach.

The complimentary guide can be downloaded at http://bit.ly/2c4kvZy.

The guide's new content includes a more in-depth section on selecting external partners, such as cyber insurers, and legal partners. The guide also includes a section on global breaches, as the new UK regulations have made this subject top of mind for many international companies. Organizations that have not yet developed a plan will benefit from content addressing the notification process and the public relations component of a breach response.

PCI Council wants upgradeable credit card readers ... next year
The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI Council) has floated a new standard it hopes will reduce credit card fraud that starts at the point of sale, in part by allowing easier upgrades.

The new version 5.0 of the PCI PIN Transaction Security (PTS) Point-of-Interaction (POI) Modular Security Requirements emerged late last week. The most notable new bits of the proposed standard (PDF) are:

• A new control that means point of sale card readers "... must support firmware updates. The device must cryptographically authenticate the firmware and if the authenticity is not confirmed, the firmware update is rejected and deleted."

• Tamper-proofing requirements so that an attack involving "drills, lasers, chemical solvents, opening covers, splitting the casing (seams), and using ventilation openings" results in devices becoming inoperable and deleting all data;

• Requirement that devices be verifiably immune to leaking keys if probed using side-channel methods such as monitoring for electromagnetic emanations;

The changes have been made in response to the prevalence of card skimming attacks and as recognition that retailers need the ability to respond quickly as threats emerge. Hard-to-upgrade card-reading kit retards security efforts as retailers resist expensive upgrades when they address obscure attacks. Making card readers upgradeable should mean better point of sale security. That the the United States is now adopting the chip-and-pin (EMV) wireless payment technology so prevalent elsewhere is also cited as a reason for the new round of changes.

But even pre-EMV technologies need better wireless security: Samsung's Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology lets phones talk to magnetic stripe readers. Even those small exchanges of electromagnetic energy are potentially sniffable, with keys a bigger prize than individual cards.

The new standard comes into force in September 2017, when the current version 4.1 will fade away. theregister.co.uk



Protection 1 Expands its Network Operations Center to Accommodate Rapid Security Only Networks Business Growth

Company Grew 100% in Enterprise Security Only Network Deployment since ASIS 2015

Chicago, IL, September 12, 2016 - Protection 1, the premier full-service business and home security company in the U.S., today announced that it has expanded its Network Operation Center (NOC) with a dedicated space to support its security only network applications for its enterprise and national account customers.

The expansion doubles the company's capacity and allows for continued growth in this emerging market. Protection 1 now has over 45,000 network devices under management across 1,500 networks. The NOC has also further fortified its physical and virtual back-up capabilities as part of its disaster recovery programs and offers its customer 24/7/365 monitoring.

"Cyber-crime continues to be one of the greatest threats facing businesses of all sizes today," stated Chris Ben Vau, Protection 1's senior vice president of Integration Solutions. "Our customer base has grown across all industries this past year to include leading brands in retail, healthcare, technology, hospitality and financial institutions. The driving force behind deploying security only networks is the ability to allow organization to separate their security devices from those on the corporate network that house proprietary and customer data, providing another level of protection against new and existing forms of cyber-attacks.

The NOC employs a skilled team of engineers, project managers and technicians that design, deploy, monitor and manage a company's security equipment network, implement and manage broadband connections, and design and implement VoIP systems. Some of the key advantages to implementing a security only network include higher bandwidth availability and speed and access to the network for loss prevention and security teams while not impacting business critical systems. Protection 1's Network Operations' monitoring center can also proactively notify customers of a potential problem with the network or its components before they become major issues.

Risk Expert: Visa-Linked Paypal Increases Fraud Potential
PayPal unveiled a 12-month exclusive partnership with Visa, which is expected to expand PayPal's point-of-sale acceptance and give consumers more payment options.

As a result of the joint venture, new Paypal accounts will have Visa as a payment option not just their linked bank accounts or Paypal balance.

"PayPal will share transaction data with the card network for any purchases made with a Visa card," said Monica Eaton-Cardone, a risk management expert and chief investment officer of Global Risk Technologies in Clearwater, Florida. "PayPal will be able to utilize Visa's near-field communication technology with brick-and-mortar merchants as well as receive certain undisclosed economic incentives."

The downside is that Visa-linked PayPal accounts can lead consumers to start charging more purchases because it's easier, opening the door to friendly fraud.

"Consumers enticed to over-spend out of convenience are more likely to file charge backs," Eaton-Carone told Newsmax Finance. "With the majority of these claims unfounded for friendly fraud, the merchant faces increasing costs and liabilities." newsmax.com

Apple Warns Customers Against iTunes Gift Card Fraud
Apple is warning consumers about scam artists who pressure their victims into transferring money by purchasing iTunes gift cards after the fraudsters spin a bogus story about unpaid bills or a relative who needs bailing out of jail.

Authorities have previously warned about similar scams involving pre-paid debit cards. But in recent months, the IRS and the Federal Trade Commission have said criminals are using the popular Apple gift cards as an easy, and difficult-to-trace, method of transferring cash.

In a typical scheme, a con artist calls a victim and claims to be a tax officer, bill collector or a lawyer representing a relative who's just been arrested. Victims are told to purchase several hundred dollars' worth of gift cards and then provide the 16-digit code from each card, usually over the phone. Fraudsters use the codes to redeem the value of the cards or even re-sell the numbers online.

Apple posted a warning on its website Friday, advising that iTunes cards should only be used for online purchases of digital music, books or apps, and not for transferring money. The Cupertino, California, company also said it's giving retailers tips on helping potential victims, often people buying cards in large quantities. news18.com

The 2016 U.S. ORC Effort Census

Credit Card Fraud

Grand Rapids, MI: FBI says, Suspects tied to $300K credit-card scheme at Walmart & Sam's Club
While investigating a disorderly-person complaint, Kent County sheriff's deputies wound up arresting suspects linked to $300,000 in fraud at Walmart and Sam's Club stores, the FBI said. The suspects, Cuban citizens living in Miami, are believed to have targeted Sam's Club stores in Alpine Township, Cascade Township, Holland, Lansing and Muskegon. They bought $40,000 in merchandise using stolen credit-card account numbers. Two of the suspects have ties with a $300,000 fraud scheme in Texas in which gift cards, or stored-value cards, are re-encoded with stolen account numbers to make fraudulent purchases at retailers such as Walmart and Sam's Club. A motel worker had recovered a "wad" of gift-card packaging and broken cards from the stairway trash. Police found three other such cards on a bed. Multiple cards with compromised data were found in the other room. Between June 10 and 13, the group used 87 account numbers under the names of Perez and two others, possibly fictitious, to make $40,167 in purchases, the FBI said. mlive.com

Shawnee police Maj. Dan Tennis says a person in the parking lot who tried to help was shot several times. Another good Samaritan then shot one of the suspects, who died at the scene. The second suspect fled but was caught near the store. The female victim and the other person who was shot were both hospitalized in critical condition. Tennis said a motive for the initial attack on the woman is not yet clear. foxnews.com

West Valley City, UT: Armed men get cash from West Valley CVS Pharmacy, shot fired; may be connected to two other area robberies
Police are looking for two suspects who robbed a CVS Pharmacy late Saturday night. The clerk took the cash drawer out and put it on the counter. One of the suspects grabbed the money from it. As the two suspects were about to leave the store, they were startled by another employee, and one of the suspects turned around and fired a shot. Burke said the shot went into the floor within 2 to 3 feet of the employee. The employee was uninjured.

Burke said the suspects' clothing and description in the CVS robbery match the suspects in a robbery at a Subway shop earlier Saturday. A detective is looking into it and police will be comparing the videos from both locations.

A third robbery took place Saturday in Salt Lake City, and police are looking for a red car that was involved in that incident. No vehicle was seen in the Subway or CVS robberies, Burke said, although the clothing and description were similar, so it's possible all three cases are related. gephardtdaily.com
