LPRC to investigate SNAP food stamp fraud best practices
- Will present findings to U.S. Dept. of Agriculture

The University of Florida (UF) won a competitive grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture this month. The UF research team will be assisted by the industry group Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) in designing and executing the proposed research. The purpose of this critical research is to provide the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), U.S. Department of Agriculture, with information regarding the practices of large national and regional food retailers to prevent and reduce SNAP (food stamp) fraud. Large food retailers have lower levels of SNAP fraud than smaller retailers that sell SNAP-approved food products. The goal of the research is to use the information obtained from the large retailers to identify the most promising practices to reduce SNAP fraud that could be successfully implemented by smaller retailers. UF's Dr. Mike Scicchitano will be the project's Principle Investigator, while UF Research Scientist and LPRC director Dr. Read Hayes will serve as Co-Principle Investigator. The team will travel and meet with US retail loss prevention executives identifying anti-fraud techniques and results as part of the project. Convenience, drug, supermarket, dollar and other retailers will be included in the study's sample.

Criminals seek out softer targets for fraud
Online fraud in the U.S. is expected to nearly double to $19 billion by 2018 from $10 billion in 2014, according to Javelin Strategy & Research, a consulting company based in Pleasanton, Calif. In Britain, which began shifting to chip cards in 2001, online fraud rose 55 percent from 2005 to 2008, according to the UK Cards Association, an industry group.

People attempting to commit fraud online buy card numbers and other information from hackers who invaded computers systems at companies such as Target Corp. and Home Depot Corp. Then they use the stolen card numbers to make online purchases. To stop the criminals, Allen Walton examines orders at his surveillance equipment company, SpyGuy Security, one by one. "We manually scan all orders for anything suspicious, like fake names, requests for overnight delivery and high-ticket orders," says Walton, whose company is based in Dallas. He finds fraudulent orders several times a month. The increase in online fraud is likely to happen over time, partly because the switch to chip cards is ongoing and expected to continue into 2016.

Technology can help companies root out fraud with software that analyzes a number of factors in a transaction: whether shipping and billing addresses match, whether the order is placed from an unfamiliar computer or device and whether the email address associated with the order is unfamiliar. A high number of transactions in a short time is another red flag, says Tom Donlea, director of e-commerce at Whitepages, a Seattle-based company whose services include address verification for online businesses. When several suspicious factors are present, the software flags a transaction so a retailer can investigate.

EliteFixtures.com, a retailer of lighting fixtures and other products in Hillsborough, N.J., has built a fraud detection system that it says has almost completely eliminated fraudulent transactions. "If someone is ordering a $10,000 chandelier and it's going to a ZIP code where the median home price is $130,000," says owner Steven Annese, "that doesn't make sense." abqjournal.com

Many U.S. consumers still in the dark about EMV
Earlier this month, the long-awaited EMV (EuroPay, MasterCard and Visa) liability shift, which requires merchants to implement EMV-compliant point-of-sale terminals in their stores, officially took effect. Retailers that fail to provide support for chip-enabled credit cards will now assume responsibility for fraudulent transactions. However, if preliminary news reports are any indication, there seems to be confusion among consumers about when, where and how to use chip-enabled credit cards. In fact, according to a recent survey from ACI Worldwide, a provider of electronic payment and banking solutions, 59 percent of consumers surveyed reported that they have yet to receive a new chip-enabled card, while 67 percent said that they have not received information from their credit card issuer or bank explaining what EMV means and how it will impact them. Of those who have received chip-enabled cards, only 32 percent are aware that the U.S. is moving to EMV, and the majority did not know the real reason that they received a new card. securityinfowatch.com

Strange drone thefts ​baffle tech biz
Burglars have stolen more than $100,000 in merchandise from North America's largest drone retailer. Given the spike in demand for consumer drones, the recent spate of drone-related burglaries may not be so outrageous. The FAA predicts a million drones could be sold during the upcoming holiday season, and products like DJI's Phantom 3 have become in-demand consumer electronics. The fact that consumer drones have only recently come into their own means they are also typically sold alongside other valuable consumer electronics, like HD video cameras and tablets. "They're hot and they have low depreciation," Thorpe says. "The drones that they steal range between $1,000 and $3,000, and if you just grab a bunch of them that's like $20,000 or $30,000 worth of drones." fortune.com

Wawa Worker Told To 'Speak English' Says Firing Was Biased
- Fired for alleged theft after complaining to manager
An immigrant from Kosovo hit Wawa Inc. with a suit in New Jersey federal court Wednesday, alleging he was fired from his gas-station attendant job after complaining that a new manager told him to speak English because no one could understand him. Safet Hajra says he was accused of stealing money from registers and then fired without proof after informing the general manager that a new supervisor had told him multiple times in front of coworkers and customers to speak English.

On April 29, 2012, a new manager commented on Hajra's English, which he says came as a surprise because he only spoke English at work and had never received complaints. After the third instance, Hajra told the general manager that the remarks created a hostile work environment, and the new supervisor said she regretted the remarks, according to the complaint. A few days later, an investigator started questioning Hajra about money missing from the register. She allegedly called him a criminal and threatened to have him deported. He offered to pay back any discrepancies that occurred during his shift as long as the investigator could provide proof, but his request was ignored, and he was fired after the hour-long interview. law360.com

Forever 21 Latest Hit With Suit Over On-Call Scheduling
Forever 21 Retail Inc. on Wednesday became the latest target over the practice of using on-call shifts after a former sales clerk hit the retailer with a proposed class action in California state court for allegedly failing to compensate employees who report but ultimately aren't put to work. Raalon Kennedy alleged that Forever 21 doesn't pay its employees reporting time pay, which they are entitled to if they report to work but aren't put to work or work less than half a scheduled day's work, calling this practice the latest form of wage theft. law360.com

Retailers Are Planning to Open 80,000 New Stores Over Next 48 Months
- Dollar stores and discount stores to expand the most
Retailers are feeling pretty good about their business with net absorption of 88M SF and occupancy projected to increase another 1% next year; new development can be expected to continue for the foreseeable future, says Alan Shor, president of Dallas-based The Retail Connection. There's almost 80,000 new stores on the planning board for the next two years; that's a 4.2% increase over the last two years. Another boon for retailers: holiday sales for this Christmas period are projected to increase by 4%, reflecting nice, solid growth, he says.

Alan tells us the retailers with the greatest amount of expansion planned include the dollar stores like Family Dollar, Dollar General and Dollar Tree, as well as other discount stores like Aldi, Forever 21, Sprint and Aaron's. The QSR category, including Subway, Pizza Hut and Dunkin Donuts, continues to have explosive growth, as well. There are also certain parts of the country outpacing the norm, he says. California is having a development boom with San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego and Orange County leading the way. Denver, Seattle and Boston are also seeing a strong rebound in new retail projects. But, Alan believes there is no better place to be than Texas; Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and Houston are three of the top five markets for retail real estate investment and development, according to PwC. bisnow.com

RLPSA CONNECT Event in New Orleans Features Mayor, Chief of Police and District Attorney

RLPSA follows success of Houston crime workshop by connecting restaurant loss prevention and security professionals with valuable law enforcement representatives

The Restaurant Loss Prevention & Security Association (RLPSA) will hold a one-day security workshop at the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel in New Orleans Tuesday, November 17, featuring New Orleans Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu, Superintendent of Police Michael S. Harrison, and District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro.

Other workshop events include a session conducted by CAP Index on restaurant crime statistics in the greater New Orleans area, a discussion of how to use technology to defend against theft and robbery, an open forum on restaurant security practices, and a panel on law enforcement and government issues.

The first "crime workshop" was held in Houston and its success led to a new strategy for a series of workshops now known as RLPSA CONNECT. "Our crime workshop series, RLPSA CONNECT, will help connect attendees with their peers within the restaurant LP communities, and establish networking opportunities for connecting with local law enforcement, and government and food service practitioners," said RLPSA Executive Director Jim Forlenza, "Our Houston program sold out, which is an indication of how important this topic is to restaurant security at all levels."

SuperValu Says Lack Of Harm Should End Data Breach MDL
SuperValu said shoppers suing the grocery store chain over payment card breaches at checkout counters haven't experienced any harm and therefore don't have anything to sue over, urging a Minnesota federal court on Wednesday to toss the multidistrict litigation. SuperValu Inc. told the court in a brief supporting its motion to dismiss the cases that shoppers can't rely on rulings in data breach cases against Target and others because consumers in those cases had shown they were actually targeted for credit fraud after the breaches. The SuperValu shoppers, on the other hand, had only pointed to one suspicious charge on one man's card, the grocery chain said. law360.com

Banks Denied Class Cert. In Kmart Data Breach Suit
An Illinois federal judge on Wednesday declined to certify a class of financial institutions alleging Kmart was using outdated security measures when hackers breached its networks last year, citing an August Seventh Circuit ruling that overturned circuit precedent on whether an offer of full relief moots claims. law360.com

Leveraging Existing Security Infrastructure to Protect Against Future Threats
European companies started appreciating the need for protecting sensitive information many years ago. In comparison, U.S. companies were more likely to see security needs from a compliance perspective. As a result, the domestic strategy was to implement security solutions that would give you the biggest bang for your buck. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) fell into that category. Usually implemented in the network layer or on end-points, DLP promised to monitor all data transfers, identify and potentially block anything that was not supposed be at a given network or storage location. The result, as many CIOs hoped, was a single, compliance-enabling security solution that would prevent data loss and leakage. Naturally DLP enjoyed incredible deployment numbers and most major enterprises have DLP deployed in one form or another. Yet when looking at how many data breaches have occurred over the past couple of years, it appears as if DLP couldn't solve businesses' security problems. The Ponemon Institute estimates that DLP prevented fewer than a fifth of data breaches. The problem with DLP and many other 'traditional' data protection solutions is that they operate on content and often work against the end-user. infosecurity-magazine.com

U.S. accuses hacker of stealing military members' data and giving it to ISIS

LPRC Research in Action Report - September 2015

The Loss Prevention Research Council is aware of how critical research is to help guide you and your team to sell more and lose less. Each month the D&D Daily publishes brief summaries of loss prevention research from the LPRC and other researchers across the globe. This research covers a wide range of topics and includes basic types of research, such as benchmarking, as well as more applied research. Both types are beneficial: basic research helps us understand complex loss prevention issues and the environmental context in which you work, while applied research builds on this to provide us with more concrete deliverables.

This month's Research In Action report focuses on introducing the LPRC audience to our guest speaker at the 2015 IMPACT conference in Gainesville, FL: Dr. Lucia Summers. Three articles have been selected from her CV to share due to their relevance to retail crime.

Testing Ecological Theories of Offender Spatial Decision Making
Using a Discrete Choice Model
This research brief describes a scholarly article that examines the spatially concentrated nature of crime. A model is presented that uses the concept of discrete choice to help understand this phenomenon. This research focuses on theft from vehicles, a crime that often occurs in a retail setting on the property of a store. This type of retail crime is extremely costly not only due to the events themselves, but to the unrest and fear that customers experience as a result of negotiating store parking lots knowing that a crime event may occur. One of the authors on this work will speak at the IMPACT conference in 2015.  Read the report synopsis here Read the full report here.

Offender as Forager? A direct Test of the Boost Account of Victimization
Interviews with convicted burglars reveal clear targeting preferences. Salient features include likely occupancy, accessibility, and neighborhood type. Police detection indicate that crimes of the same type occurring closest to each other in space and time are those most likely to be cleared to the same offender(s). The general aim of this research was to see if spatial and temporal patterns of acquisitive crime are consistent with the idea that offenders engage in foraging activity.  Click here to access the report(LPRC membership required) 

Spatial Displacement and Diffusion of Benefits
The following research brief examines the methodological evaluation of policing initiatives. By focusing geographically on the displacement of crime (relocation of crime to other places) and the diffusion of benefits (increase in reduction at other locations), forty-four Meta-analysis studies were analyzed based on the following criterion factors: Study identifiers, Location of intervention and size, control and catchment areas, Research design, and type of focused policing intervention. Displacement of crime is guaranteed to exist in the industry, however, mirroring its opposite, diffusion of benefits poses as a frequent outcome. This coexistence demonstrates how policing initiatives typically act as a reductive force on crime and displacement. We ask: After policing initiatives are enforced, how does displacement of crime inversely affect diffusion of benefits? How large of margin are we able to analyze and find treatments to these issues? What policing initiatives found to be most impactful?  Click here to access the report.  (LPRC membership required) 



Target Corp's hasty retreat still haunting Canadian REITs nine months later
Target Corp. is long gone from Canada, having announced its departure about nine months ago, but the retailing giant's impact on the country's real estate market is still being felt. A lot of questions remain about who will fill the empty stores formerly occupied by Target, and this gap is a big reason why the national retail occupancy rate has fallen by 1.8 percentage points year to date (to 95.2 per cent) - its lowest level since 2002. Michael Smith, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, noted that the retrofitting and replacement of tenants at these locations is causing some disruption. However, he believes the financial impact to Canadian REITs will be manageable, since the vast majority already have below-market rents and most have properties in good locations.

Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire and Lowe's bought a combined 36 store leases from a total of 58 sold as part of Target's CCAA process. The remaining leases were primarily sold to landlords such as Cadillac Fairview Corp. Ltd., Oxford Properties Group Inc. and Ivanhoe Cambridge, which were looking to regain control over their real estate. Morguard REIT and Cominar REIT also bought leases for $100,000 each. Smith pointed out that 44 of the 63 Target leases that were held by companies in his coverage universe were disclaimed. Since Target decided not to pay rent due to landlords under its guarantees (31 of the 44 disclaimed leases had guarantees), most landlords have stopped recognizing this revenue.

Surveillance drones: the next new security tool
The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires has prided itself in being early adopters of new security technologies. Most recently, Commissionaires Northern Alberta Division, headquartered in Edmonton, began operating unmanned air vehicles aka drones for surveillance work on client properties. Although this is a relatively new security platform, Commissionaires view it as the sign of things to come. The cost of reliable surveillance drones is decreasing, allowing for the acquisition of platforms that are stable, robust and capable of excellent video and photographs. Unfortunately, regulations surrounding the commercial use of drones prohibit security providers from simply operating as amateur hobbyists would. For this reason Commissionaires Northern Alberta Division is pursuing a dual track. In addition to operating client-owned drones, they are acquiring their own for research and development as well as training purposes. canadiansecuritymag.com

Sobeys appeals rights board's decision on racial profiling
Sobeys Group Inc. is appealing a recent Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission decision that found staff at its Upper Tantallon store racially profiled a black woman by falsely accusing her of shoplifting. In a Sept. 28 decision, Marion Hill, the commission's board of inquiry chairwoman, ruled that staff discriminated against Andrella David because of her race and perceived income. David, a black woman from Upper Hammonds Plains, went to Sobeys for some ice cream at about 9 p.m. on May 26, 2009. While David was waiting in line to pay, Jennie Barnhill, acting manager of the store that night, approached David in front of other customers and accused her of being a shoplifter in the store seven days earlier and said she had video evidence to prove it. thechronicleherald.ca

Vancouver: Police bust $100,000 'predatory' buy-and-sell operation for stolen goods
Three people have been arrested and $100,000 in stolen property seized after police busted a sophisticated buy-and-sell operation that spanned from Vancouver to Surrey. Police said they received a tip over the summer that a convenience store on King George Boulevard in Surrey was actually a fencing operation - a place where stolen property is knowingly bought and resold. Goods were being snatched from Vancouver businesses to stock the store, according to police, and the operation was so vast investigators believe it took hundreds of crimes per month to keep it running. Among the items seized were razors, alcohol, perfume, cold and flu medications, and baby items. biv.com

Discover Network: Insights on the M-Commerce Future
Discover is acutely aware of the growth in mobile commerce. The company has seen the rise of mobile wallets and the success of loyalty programs, and has adjusted its own strategies accordingly. "We are developing a platform that connects different ways to pay with mobile wallet providers, while emphasizing security, simplicity and control. Discover is also continuing to work with merchants to create meaningful offers that drive cardmembers into the store. Traditionally, these offers would have been delivered via statement inserts, but have been moving to the digital world through Discover Deals, which is available via the big browser and mobile app." With payment networks acting as the strongest link between merchant and consumer, it's no surprise that Discover has already announced several partnerships with mobile payment players - Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Android Pay. paymentsweek.com

Beware the Internet of Thieves
The nature of increased connectivity leads to increases in the areas for attack, and the subsequent vulnerabilities present new opportunities for researchers and attackers alike. In the past year, there have been a growing number of probing and experimental attacks on a range of devices, as well as a few serious attacks.

Research estimates the global average cost of a cybercrime attack to be close to $6m and through its global adoption, the IoT could soon become the next battleground in the threat landscape, generating an 'internet of thieves' that we must anticipate so we can detect, prevent and protect ourselves against.

A layered approach to security is vital to fully protect against the threats posed by the IoT. Within this, there are four key elements.

First, when making payments, we must protect the card number in both the physical and the digital environments by confirming the authenticity of the payment account.

Second, we need to ensure that the rightful owner of the card is the one actually making the transaction - they must confirm they are who they say they are.

The third layer to this approach is securing the transaction, making sure all the pieces of data fit expected models and patterns through analysis of card, cardholders, and environmental data to measure and mitigate risk.

While these three elements operate their own purpose within the layered approach, the fourth and final element is running consistently within them, every step of the way. This stage ensures all potential areas of vulnerability are covered so if thieves aren't caught one place, they will be caught elsewhere. infosecurity-magazine.com

Pompano Beach, FL: Fugitive wanted in Macy's jewelry store heist evaded authorities for years 
Seven years ago, a man pulled out a gun at a Macy's jewelry store and stole at least $100,000 in jewelry, deputies say. After he was freed from jail on bond, he vanished, authorities say. As a fugitive since 2010, Vincent Sullivan managed to remain free until Wednesday night when Boynton Beach Police pulled him over in a traffic stop on Interstate 95. Sullivan, 28, had about nine warrants for his arrest on charges ranging from robbery with a firearm and grand theft auto to burglary and possession of marijuana.
The jewelry store robbery happened in July 2008 at the Macy's store in the Pompano Citi Centre at 1200 NE 23rd St. in Pompano Beach. sun-sentinel.com

Lawrence, IN: Handcuffed Walmart shoplifting suspect steals Police car
A shoplifting suspect is back in custody after police say she stole a Lawrence police car. The woman was in handcuffs in the back of the cruiser when she managed to get into the driver's seat and take off down the street. It all started at the Walmart store on Pendleton Pike just north of 56th Street. That's where police say, an officer handcuffed 21-year-old Heather Johnson for shoplifting electronics at the store. Per department procedure, an officer handcuffed Johnson and put her seat belt on in the back seat of a police cruiser. "The officer went to the back of the vehicle, opened the trunk up to get some paperwork and, as he closed the trunk, he observed that the suspect (who) is a very petite female, had gotten the handcuffs around in front of her, got the seat belt off and had gotten into the front seat of the police car, dropped it into drive and drove off," explained Lawrence Police Captain Gary Woodruff. According to police, Johnson ditched the car a mile down the road and called her mom for help, who picked her up, but turned her daughter in to the first officer she found. wthr.com

The key to a successful interview is bridging the gap between your background and the prospective employer's company and needs. Preparation-preparation-preparation!

Just a Thought,
