The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

Retail data breaches & Home Depot's impacting credit card fraud & debit card fraud spike across the nation  A large data breach at Home Depot Inc. has started to trigger fraudulent transactions that are rippling across financial institutions and, in some cases, draining cash from customer bank accounts, according to people familiar with the impact of the hacking attack. The fraudulent transactions are showing up across the U.S. as criminals use stolen card information to buy prepaid cards, electronics and even groceries, these people said. In some cases, the fraudulent transactions have been tracked to batches of cardholder accounts that are tied to specific ZIP Codes, they said. The trends are all too familiar to thousands of the nation's financial institutions, which have spent much of the year trying to root out fraudulent transactions tied to breaches at merchants like Target Corp., Neiman Marcus Group Ltd., grocer Supervalu Inc. and Asian restaurant chain P.F. Chang's China Bistro Inc. It still is too early to tell how many instances of fraud will eventually be traced to the Home Depot breach. The flood of recent incidents across numerous retailers means that cardholders may have shopped at more than one merchant that had been attacked, making it difficult to decipher which fraudulent transaction is tied to which breach. Banks also may have found fraudulent transactions stemming from the Home Depot hacking before they were aware that the breach had occurred. Editor's note: Just last week Sarasota's Sheriff's office specifically blamed the data breaches on the huge spike they're seeing that's resulted in 7 big credit fraud rings being busted this year in their jurisdiction alone. Their single year biggest spike in history! (Source wsj.com)

Fired UPS worker kills two supervisors, self, in Alabama shooting - Why was he allowed back into the facility?  The gunman, identified by authorities as Kerry Joe Tesney, 45, was fired earlier this month and had recently received a letter in the mail with the news that he had lost his appeal to get his job back, police said. The shooting occurred shortly before 9:30 a.m. inside a large, brick UPS service center. At least a dozen others were present in the building at the time of the shooting, but no one else was wounded, police said. A group of grief counselors could be seen entering the UPS facility on Tuesday afternoon. Editor's Note: How and why was he allowed back into the facility? Real-time procedures and security has to be involved in all terminations. (Source reuters.com)

New York City's new ORC effort gets some press
Bloomberg Macy's and JCPenney have joined more than 100 companies and the NYPD to form an alliance that will be known as the Metropolitan Organized Retail Crime Alliance. They compete tooth and nail to draw customers to their Midtown flagship stores, but Macy's and JCPenney are teaming up to block the thievery of organized crooks. The rivals have joined more than 100 companies and the NYPD to form an alliance that will be known as the Metropolitan Organized Retail Crime Alliance. Its objective is to improve retail stores' security efforts by sharing intelligence on crews of bandits, scams and ripoffs. Target, Home Depot and Rite Aid have also signed up for the crime-busting venture. Computer giant Apple is poised to jump onboard soon, sources said. Mary Altaffer/ASSOCIATED PRESS Its objective is to improve retail stores' security efforts by sharing intelligence on crews of bandits, scams and ripoffs. "If we can build this out by the end of the year to, let's say, 400 retailers, we can really make a dent in the number of people who become victims," said Sgt. Tarik Sheppard, head of the NYPD's grand larceny analytical unit. "That can make a big difference." Information gathered at the meetings is passed on to more than 50 law enforcement agencies, including the FBI. The alliance also hopes to head off crimes like one involving a Brooklyn couple busted in August using phony credit cards to buy more than $100,000 in Enfamil baby formula from different BJ's Wholesale outlets. Cops nabbed the couple trying to send the booty to the black market in China. (Source newsnyork.com)

Oregon man sues Costco for $670,000- claims store security broke his leg - Refused to show receipt - Can he be detained?  An Oregon man has sued Costco for $670,000, claiming store security detained him and broke his leg after he refused to show his receipt when exiting the building. Timothy Walls says in his Multnomah County Circuit Court lawsuit, which was filed last week, that when he tried to leave a Portland Costco store with $102.66 in purchases in January last year, an employee grabbed his shopping cart and told him to present his receipt for inspection. When Walls refused, another Costco employee used a "martial arts type strike" that fractured his leg in multiple locations, according to his civil complaint. Walls's attorney said Tuesday that the litigation is about much more than the broken leg. We have, throughout the country, observed big box stores that have implemented policies to check all receipts at the door," lawyer Clayton Morrison said. "They can have that policy. But if the person refuses to show their receipt, what is lawful for the store? Can they detain you?" Costco could have prohibited Wells from returning to the store, but forcing him to stay with no reason to suspect him of a crime amounted to "unlawful holding," Morrison said. The members-only warehouse box store in its court filings said that Walls refused to show his receipt, then threw an employee against a wall and struck him in the throat after the worker called for a manager to resolve the dispute. Walls's injuries were "the sole and direct cause of Plaintiff's own actions," Costco said in the court papers. (Source reuters.com)

Grocery store parking lots hot target for thieves - 7,000 crimes reported in Houston over last three years  Nearly 7,000 crimes were reported to Houston Police in the parking lots of grocery stores over the past three years.

When these crimes are most likely to occur. Turns out, statistics show it's not at night, but rather in broad daylight, between two and five in the afternoon. All of the grocery store chains we highlighted said customer safety is a top concern and that they work closely with Houston police on crime prevention. Walmart told us it has numerous security cameras, enhanced lighting and roving security guards at its locations.

eBay's Global Asset Protection team assists Law Enforcement on Darlington Council worker arrested for selling stolen goods

A TRUSTED council worker stole equipment worth 78,000 pounds to sell on eBay to pay for his gambling habit and spiraling mortgage, a court was told. Phillip Gaskin, 40, took tens of thousands of pounds worth of plumbing gear in little over a year before he was caught. The Darlington Borough Council site manager – allowed to resign after the thefts emerged – was locked up for 18 months. Teesside Crown Court was told today that Gaskin was suffering from 'a multitude of psychological difficulties' at the time. His lawyer, Ben Pegman, pleaded for him not to be sent to jail because he was 'extremely vulnerable and emotionally fragile'. But Judge Peter Bowers imposed a prison sentence – although reduced it to one-and-a-half years because of Gaskin's condition.

Friendly Fraud, Return Fraud and Identity Fraud bigger problems for e-Commerce retailers than others, study shows  The recently published 2014 LexisNexis "True Cost of Fraud" Study reveals eCommerce merchants draw a completely different picture of fraud loss causes than all merchants. While "Lost or stolen merchandise" is by far the largest loss generator for all merchants (35% of annual fraud losses), with larger eCommerce merchants fraud is clearly the biggest pain point. From all types of fraud checked (Friendly, Return/Refund, Identity Theft) Identity Fraud plagues larger eCommerce merchants far more than any other fraud type. According to LexisNexis, with larger eCommerce merchants: "Friendly Fraud" accounts for a 44% bigger share of the losses (26% Vs. 18% for all merchants), "Fraudulent Request for Return/Refund" accounts for a 18% bigger share of the losses (20% Vs. 17% for all merchants), and "Identity Theft" tops all, accounting for a 64% bigger share of the losses (23% Vs. 14% for all merchants).

An Excerpt from the Keynote Speech at the OROCC Conference Last Week

How Big is Publically Reported ORC? - 500% increase in 3 years - Almost $1B reported in the Press in 2014  So far this year, the Daily reported on ORC cases totaling just over $885 million, representing a 500% increase over the 2012 figure of $146 million. Understanding that retailers absolutely avoid and have strict polices about what's released to the public through the media. The numbers below represent the total amount of ORC that's been publically reported in the press over the last three years in the Daily's ORC column. Certainly we haven't caught it all, but our team has gotten better at capturing it and obviously the new ORC laws in 26 states have had an impact on what the press has seen in the public court records. Additionally, the 30+ ORC groups around the country have an obvious impact on increased apprehensions as well. Keeping in mind we have four more months to report this year you'll see the trend.

*2014 figures include through August

Of special note is that we'll be reporting the Daily's other findings in separate articles over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned as we explore the public ORC records and tie the retail data breaches to the huge increase we're seeing in credit card fraud hitting the nation.


Kroger & Target ORC Investigators Bust Major Multi-State Fencing Operation - Police discover thousands of stolen items in former church in Tuesday morning raid in Louisville, Ky.  Saint Matthews police, along with loss prevention units from Kroger and Target stores made the bust at a home in Louisville.. It was the result of a four-year investigation. On Tuesday police arrested Troy Curtis. He's charged with engaging in organized crime and receiving stolen property. While investigators wouldn't make an official statement, they did explain that the old church building is filled with stolen property from all over the county. They believe the operation may have spanned over several states and has been going on for over 4 years. The search warrant stemmed from a joint investigation involving St. Matthews police along with loss prevention officials from Kroger and Target. According to SMPD, the investigation involves property stolen from Kroger and Target stores throughout Jefferson County, including St. Matthews. The merchandise was then sold to Troy Curtis, 50, of Louisville, for 15 to 30% on the dollar. Police said the stolen property was then sold over the internet using online services. Police said now they have a huge task of trying to identify all of the stolen property. There is enough stolen property that police said it could fill a few trucks. The investigation is ongoing and they expect to charge additional suspects. Editor's Note: Great work on the part of the ORC teams. And while no one has specifically said yesterday's news update on the ongoing ORC case in Louisville that's now reached over 130 indicted suspects one can only assume a few turned over on the local fence for reduced sentences. Once again this is the Daily's conjecture and has not been confirmed by any source external to the Daily. (Source wlky.com) (Source wave3.com)

Man gets 6 1/2 years for stealing a $900,000 candy-filled semi from Romeoville, IL  A longtime Chicago resident was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in federal prison Monday for stealing a semitrailer containing $175,000 worth of Wrigley candy from a Romeoville trucking facility in 2012. Roderick Earl Nunn, 40, pled guilty to stealing the sweet cargo in March 2012, according to a release from the U.S. attorney's office of the Western District of Michigan. Nunn was arrested on April 15, 2012, on a Michigan stretch of Interstate 94 as he drove to Detroit to fence the stolen goods. The arrest was the culmination of a career of stealing semitrailer cargo that U.S. prosecutors valued at roughly $8 million, although his pre-sentencing report only counted eight prior thefts totaling about $900,000 as conduct relevant to the candy heist. Court records show that Nunn's candy heist was foiled by broken tail lights on the big rig he stole. (Source chicagotribune.com)

More than 660 people were arrested or put under investigation in a major police operation across 10 Asian countries that targeted criminal networks trading fake and potentially dangerous products, Interpol announced Monday.

This is not the first major transnational operation of its kind. In February, Europol -- the European Union's law enforcement agency -- announced that an operation targeting counterfeit schemes in 33 countries in Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia had netted more than a thousand tons of fake food and drink.

Kissimmee, Florida Mall Shooting wounds 2, suspects may have been in fatal crash  Two people were wounded in a shooting at a central Florida mall Tuesday, and police were trying to determine if two men found dead a short time later in a crashed vehicle were connected, authorities said. Officers responded to shots being fired near the Osceola Square Mall's Ross Dress For Less store around 6:15 p.m., Kissimmee police said in a news release. The injuries of the two victims, who weren't immediately named, didn't appear to be life-threatening, police said. The shooting followed a verbal fight in the store and spilled outside, police spokeswoman Stacie Miller said. The victims, who didn't have weapons, were at another mall entrance when they were shot. Miller said it wasn't clear if the shooting suspects were in the mall or out in the parking lot. As officers were heading to the store, they saw a vehicle matching a description of the suspects' vehicle heading toward them. The officers turned around to follow and eventually found that it had crashed head-on into another car. The two men in the suspect vehicle were dead from what appeared to be crash-related injuries, Miller said. The driver of the other vehicle was injured, but Miller said it didn't appear to be life-threatening. (Source cbc.ca)

Surveys show that happiness at work significantly improves performance and productivity. It translates into higher energy levels, better reviews, faster promotions, higher wages, better health and an overall better environment. While it shouldn't be surprising, it often times needs to be remembered. When fellow executives are unhappy for long periods, either for personal reasons or because of co-workers, it needs to be addressed because productivity and overall team health will suffer. Attitudes are contagious and happier teams produce more and have better results. Is your team happy?
