Stolen cards flooding the market in wake of recent data breaches |
- Debit card fraud at Walmart discovered in 16 states
Consumers are being warned about an uptick in the number of fraudulent purchases
being made at Walmart, which in some cases has resulted in their financial
institution moving to deny debit card transactions unless a PIN is used. The
alerts started to circulate earlier this summer, but the number of incidents has
remained steady in some parts of the U.S. In all, there have been alerts
issued for 16 states and Walmart has been named as the location where the
compromised cards were being used.
In some cases, Walmart was also a common point of purchase (prior to the card
being used by crooks), but given that it's Walmart - such an indicator
shouldn't immediately lead one to assume that Walmart's card processing network
has been compromised. Right now, the larger picture is that since July,
criminals have been using compromised cards at Walmart locations across the
U.S., and because they've kept the purchases small - they've been flying below
What the criminals are doing when this type of fraud happens is cashing out on
the value of their stolen cards. They make small purchases, such as the ones
mentioned in each of the warnings, and use the card until it is drained of its
balance or flagged and disabled. However, most crooks will use the card two or
three times before tossing it away or reselling the data. This lowers the
chances of them being caught. After they've cashed out the card, the items
purchased are either resold (it's all profit at this point to the criminal) or
they're kept for personal use. Activity such as this is usually seen in the
aftermath of a retail data breach. Similar jumps in card fraud were noted
shortly after the Target and Home Depot data breaches. The criminal market
was flooded with freshly stolen cards, and the criminals had to move quick to
cash out before they were disabled and replaced.
Nordstrom Loss Prevention catches suspect featured
on 'Washington's Most Wanted'
A man featured on "Washington's Most Wanted" for the beating and shooting of a
Monroe man was caught by Nordstrom security at Bellevue Square Mall on Oct. 9.
Jordan Jensen-Green, one of two suspects in the beating and shootings of a
Monroe man, was apprehended by Nordstrom loss prevention at Bellevue Square mall
trying to use a stolen credit card, according to the Bellevue Police. The
loss prevention team contacted Bellevue Police, who identified the suspect using
a mobile fingerprint identification device. He was then arrested by Bellevue
Police. Snohomish Police had a $2 million warrant out for Jensen-Green and
another suspect, Christopher Cardinale, who is still wanted by police. The two
men are suspected of shooting and beating a 38-year-old Monroe man last month
during a home-invasion style burglary and assault on Florence Acres Rd,
according to the "Washington's Most Wanted" website.
Measuring the true costs of pharmaceutical theft
The total cost of pharma cargo theft could be up to eight times your product's
value. Meanwhile, penalties for criminals remain light. Just how much goes
missing and how to put a price on what it costs to investigate, replace, compute
lost sales, etc., is the focus of a new study underwritten by Sensitech called
Pharmaceutical Cargo Theft: Uncovering the True Costs.
Findings reveal more than half of the supply chain professionals reporting
had a major cargo theft resulting in a loss of more than $100,000 in the past
five years. In the same five-year period, the median number of thefts was three.
Three respondents reported four major thefts per year, and one respondent
reported 16 to 20 thefts a year outside the U.S. Interestingly enough, of these
reported thefts, 45% of the companies were able to recover the stolen goods.
After taking into consideration which types of costs were likely to occur,
respondents estimated the true cost of that theft to exceed $566,000, or three
times the product's value. With loss of the product itself, you are looking at a
Sensitech's Henry Ames emphasized these findings were very conservative, and
said it would be acceptable to go as high as eight times the value of stolen
medicines in estimating the total cost of pharmaceutical cargo theft.

Landmark Counterfeit Case - UK Luxury Retailer Belstaff Awarded $42M in Damages
- 'Unprecedented' number of counterfeit websites shut down - More than 800 sites
run by one individual in China
MarkMonitor today announces that one of its high profile clients, luxury fashion
brand Belstaff, has won its ongoing battle against online counterfeiters.
Following a civil lawsuit heard in the US courts, judges ordered
counterfeiters to pay more than $42 million in damages in the landmark
counterfeit case, which resulted in an unprecedented number of offending
websites, 676 in total, being handed over to Belstaff.
The legal result follows the company's decision to embark on a major protection
programme for all of its IP - from registering of trademarks to individual
products, including seeking external help from online brand protection
specialists, MarkMonitor. The programme was put in place to monitor the full
range of the different marketplaces and individual websites selling counterfeit
products. The search also focused on any websites using the Belstaff name in
their domain name, as well as generic sites listing counterfeit Belstaff
The sophisticated MarkMonitor technology is capable of exploring an entire
network of sites, including both the index and non-index results, as well as
examine fundamental criteria such as the website's design and the payment
processes. The search results for Belstaff uncovered 3,000 websites selling
counterfeits products, and the technology also identified that more than
800 of the websites were managed by one individual based in China.
Approval Granted In Lawsuit Involving Alleged Sales Tax Refunds For Less Than
the Full Amount of Sales Tax Paid at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club
The United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio has granted
preliminary approval to a proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit claiming
that when items purchased from Wal-Mart or Sam's Club retail locations, or
on-line from Walmart.com or Samsclub.com were returned to a location different
than the location of purchase, the amount of sales tax refunded or credited was,
at times, less than the full amount of sales tax paid at the time the product
BCBG Hit With Wage Theft Class Action Over On-Call Shifts
BCBG Max Azria was slapped with a proposed class action in California state
court Thursday alleging it failed to compensate employees who are required to
report for on-call shifts but ultimately aren't put to work. Robynette Robinson
said BCBG tells its employees to consider their on-call shifts a definite thing,
but that the retailer doesn't properly credit them reporting-time pay when they
aren't required to work the on-call shift.
"This class action on behalf of BCBG Max Azria Group LLC retail store employees
challenge[s] a new form of wage theft -- the practice of scheduling
employees in retail stores for 'on-call' shifts but failing to pay the employees
required reporting-time pay," Robinson said.
The suit comes a day after New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman
announced Urban Outfitters Inc. has agreed to stop on-call scheduling at its New
York stores, the fifth major retailer to do so since the attorney general
launched an April inquiry into retail workers' schedules. California has also
been investigating unpredictable work schedules, with the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors passing legislation last November requiring employers to post
employee schedules 14 days in advance and compensate employees for unused
New Cedar Rapids law requires cash-handling retailers to have video surveillance
systems - excludes Lindale Mall food court
New legislation requiring dozens of Cedar Rapids businesses to install video
surveillance systems exempts Lindale Mall, one of the city's busiest retail
sites that has nearly 350 police calls last year.
Ordinance 60A, approved in May, requires banks, convenience stores, hotels,
fast-food restaurants, cellphone dealers, pawnshops, liquor stores and ammo
dealers to have 24/7 video surveillance to deter crime and assist with
prosecution. But mall food courts specifically are exempted from the rules, and
mall public areas, such as concourses and play areas, are not mentioned.
The new rules expand the businesses that must have cameras, define the
technology required so police can get clear images and require businesses record
24/7 and keep the footage 30 days. The code focuses on retail establishments
that deal in cash, have products easily stolen or have products popular on the
black market such as guns and cellphones, Robinson said.
Some Lindale Mall businesses, such as banks or cellphone retailers, would be
required to have video surveillance under the new code. Other stores, such as
Von Maur, voluntarily equip their stores with cameras.
Smartphone thieves face tougher sentencing in the UK
'Self destructing' smartphones reportedly coming to the U.S
Thieves in England and Wales who steal smartphones may face harsher punishment,
new guidelines. The Sentencing Council's paper, titled Theft Offences:
Definitive Guideline, explains that when it comes to theft, judges will now
consider the impact "beyond financial loss". While that remains a key
consideration - many high-end smartphones are expensive - it is understood that
the fallout for victims is much more complex. The council stated that such
offences "can cause emotional distress, loss of confidence and great disruption
and inconvenience". This update reflects the fact that smartphones have become a
repository for all sorts of personal and professional assets and belongings,
including banking details, photographs and sensitive data.
Last month it was
reported that the The Department for Homeland Security in the US is
working with the Boeing Company to develop a so-called "brain chip" that would
allow any smartphone to "self-destruct". The technology behind the device
can detect whether it has been stolen because it has learnt its user's behavior
- any deviation is seen as suspect. In such an instance, it will then delete all

EMV not a panacea for online fraud
Here is the bottom line: EMV compliance protects against certain types of fraud
but not all types. Yes, EMV adoption will drive significant growth in online
fraud. But in something that has received far less attention is the fact EMV-compliant
technology can also actually help protect retailers against fraudulent
In some good news, historical Verizon data suggests that EMV protects against
certain types of fraud extremely well. For example, in the U.K., counterfeit
card fraud dropped 67% and lost/stolen card fraud dropped 58% in the first five
years following EMV adoption. Receipt fraud (mainly dealing with fraudulent
returns) fell an even more drastic 91%.
Van Oosten also strongly advised that retailers make EMV one component of a
broader payment security strategy, rather than rely on EMV alone. He discussed
some of EMV's limitations. "POS is the highest attack target," said Van Oosten.
"It's the pole position for breaches across the world. But retailers need better
infrastructure protection. Of all the retailers who have had their systems
breached in the past 10 years, Verizon has not found one that was PCI
6.0-compliant at the time of the incident."
Analysis: Significance of China's Arrest of Hackers
Report: At U.S. Request, Chinese Nab Those Stealing Trade Secrets. Hackers who
pilfered trade secrets from American companies have been arrested by the Chinese
government at the request of the Obama administration, the Washington Post
reports. "Assuming that the Washington Post report is accurate, these arrests
mark the first time China has taken real action to address a U.S. concern
related to commercial spying."
"The arrests suggest that President Xi has determined that it is in China's
self-interest to act against hacking taking place within China. Chinese
leadership might be undertaking a policy shift in its approach to Chinese-based
hacking because this problem negatively affects China's influence and reputation
on cyber issues."
Experian Faces Congressional Scrutiny Over Breach
- Senators Demanding Answers - 109 Experian Breaches?
U.S. Senators Seek National Notification, Data Security Regulations. Three
Democratic U.S. senators are demanding answers from the CEOs of Experian - one
of the "big three" U.S. credit bureaus - and T-Mobile, after Experian
recently warned that it suffered a data breach that exposed personal information
for 15 million T-Mobile subscribers.
We request that Experian's information security executives provide a detailed
accounting to the committee regarding your investigations and latest findings on
the circumstances that permitted unauthorized access to the personal information
of so many Americans," U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Bill Nelson,
D-Fla., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, say in a letter to the CEOs. "We expect that
your security experts have had enough time to thoroughly examine the cause and
impact of the breach and will be able to provide the committee with detailed
Nor is this the first time that Experian has suffered a data breach. The breach
expert known as "Dissent" claims there have been at least 109 Experian
breaches in which clients' log-in details were misused, plus an unknown
number of cases in which attackers impersonated consumers to steal their
personally identifiable information. The misuse of data from Experian's Court
Ventures subsidiary resulted in a Vietnamese fraudster offering "for sale
millions of stolen identities of U.S. citizens to more than a thousand cyber
criminals scattered throughout the world."
Fraud Moves on From Phishing - Targeted - Social Media Driven Emails to Gain
Targeted fraud is on the rise, morphing into a well-managed crime that pays off
better than ever. According to a study from ZapFraud, fraudsters are now
beginning to leverage new tools, so that a single targeted email can pay off
much better than sending a million untargeted fraud emails. Ready access
to social media and commonly available online databases serve these criminals,
who know how to use personal data to gain victims' trust. Today's fraud
succeeds because the sender knows enough about a victim to create context that
"The right context equates to calling out someone's name in a crowd, instead of
yelling 'hey you,'" ZapFraud said. "Highly targeted emails suggest to the victim
that the sender knows them or has information the victim needs or can use.
Senders/fraudsters create an atmosphere of familiarity that is accepted by the
targeted victim of the attack and encourages them to respond."
Iris scans better than chips for card security
If you want to know how to prevent credit card fraud, look no further than the
new Windows Hello login feature, which recognizes a user's face and iris,
logging them instantly into their new device. Consumers and merchants alike
should demand that the long-term plan for credit card security involves
licensing that technology from Microsoft - or a competitor. With the advent of
Windows Hello, we now have a way to bring the numbers of lost and stolen card
fraud to zero.

Combating electronic payment fraud
As the market progresses, electronic payment fraud is becoming more
sophisticated and widespread, with criminals frequently using multiple channels
and payment methods concurrently to attack a customer's accounts. As a result,
traditional methods of identifying suspicious activity are no longer adequately
protecting institutions and their customers. To most effectively combat
electronic fraud, a holistic approach to fraud management must be in place,
including the following strategies:
Crunch the data - Data analytics applied in a consortium can be particularly
useful for pattern recognition modelling. This is when banks pool data on
legitimate and fraudulent electronic payment transactions to help them better
discern fraud patterns and flag transactions with similar characteristics as
Implement Fraud Scorecards - To identify and prevent evolving fraud threats,
banks need fraud systems that accurately score transactions for fraud risk
across a full range of electronic and mobile payment channels. This approach can
include setting up flash fraud rules and custom scorecards to help institutions
better detect and prevent fraudulent transactions in the most cost-effective
Ensure Multichannel Integration - To achieve the multichannel coverage required,
institutions need to have visibility into customer activity across all payment
and interaction channels, including online and mobile. They must also ensure
that they are closely integrated with their core payments platforms.
Samsung claims LoopPay hack does not affect Samsung Pay
LoopPay, the technology on which Samsung's mobile payments system is based, has
been hacked. US payments startup LoopPay, bought by Samsung in February 2015 to
underpin the company's Samsung Pay mobile payments system, was attacked by a
Chinese group of hackers. The hackers, known as the Codoso Group or Sunshock
Group, had access to LoopPay's internal network since March and went undetected
until August 2015. The hackers had undetected access to LoopPay's corporate
network for five months. How much of the information required to replicate the
technology was stolen from the company in that time is unknown at this stage.
Samsung said its payment system was not impacted and at no point was any
personal payment information at risk. The company said it was an isolated
incident and stressed that LoopPay was a physically separate network from
e-commerce revenue up 11.8% in Q3
E-commerce transactions rose an almost identical 11.6%. Phones and tablets made
up a combined 28.7% of e-commerce transactions, up from 23.1% of orders during
the same time the prior year.

NYC, NY: Scammer busted after trying to retrieve bag full of fake

A not-so-crafty con man was busted on forgery, grand larceny and criminal
impersonation charges when he left a bag full of fake credit cards in a rental
car - and then went to the rental car company to retrieve the bogus goods,
officials said Saturday. Carl Black, 33, allegedly rented a Dodge Charge from an
Enterprise office at Kennedy Airport on Sept. 15, but never returned the
vehicle. Cops found the car in the Bronx earlier this week and brought it back
to the rental business, but when workers were preparing it for its next client,
they found a bag in the trunk filled with a treasure trove of fake Visa debit
and credit cards under different names. Since he rented the car with a fake
credit card and a forged ID, cops had no idea who he was. But Black repeatedly
called Enterprise, claiming he accidentally left his bag in the car and wanted

Social media can be a fantastic platform for every company and executive, but it
can also be a nightmare. Mixing personal with professional oftentimes sends the
wrong messages and can absolutely destroy the image a professional needs to
maintain in the public arena. Maintaining boundaries and separating the two can
oftentimes be difficult to accomplish as corporate America searches for every
piece of information they can find on executives and companies. And regardless
of what anyone says, your professional image should always take precedence over
your personal image in the social media world.
