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

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
 

Tens of thousands $$$$ in Home Depot's data breach stolen credit cards being used in Brazil  The most puzzling aspect of these unauthorized charges? They were all submitted through Visa and MasterCard's networks as chip-enabled transactions, even though the banks that issued the cards in question haven't even yet begun sending customers chip-enabled cards. Banks are responsible for all of the fraud costs that occur from any fraudulent use of their customers' chip-enabled credit/debit cards - even fraudulent charges disguised as these pseudo-chip transactions. krebsonsecurity.com

What's Driving Credit Card Fraud - Illegal online trade in personal information up 300% from 2012 - Hits 110 Million this year  The illegal online trade in personal information has soared to record highs with more than 110 million pieces of data bought and sold by criminals so far in 2014 - new report. 96.5% of the illegally traded data consists of login credentials – username and password combinations – with the remainder mainly card payment details, such as card numbers, expiry dates and three-digit CVV2 security codes from the back of cards. retailfraud.com

Retailing's next generation of chief executive officers & directors to whom they report - to come from the world of technology  The retail industry is hardly devoid of talent "but the talent isn't adjusting to the changes in the industry. The effective ceo today is no longer a great picker of product but someone who's a great picker of people, who can aggregate the talent and ask them the right questions." wwd.com

Apple Pay Is Disabled by Rite Aid and CVS as a Rival Makes Plans
Over the weekend, Rite Aid and CVS disabled Apple Pay from working in their stores nationwide. The reason was not immediately clear. Ashley Flower, a spokeswoman for Rite Aid, said the company "does not currently accept Apple Pay." She added that Rite Aid was "still in the process of evaluating our mobile payment options." Representatives from CVS did not respond to repeated telephone and email requests for comment on Sunday. Analysts said disabling acceptance of Apple Pay was a way to favor a rival system that is not yet available but is being developed by a consortium of merchants known as Merchant Customer Exchange, or MCX. Rite Aid and CVS are part of that consortium, not part of the group of retailers that had teamed up with Apple on its payment system. Nonetheless, over the week, Apple Pay technology was working in Rite Aid and CVS stores. nytimes.com

Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Rite Aid, and CVS have all said they want nothing to do Apple Pay  It's an early battle, so it is premature to say who will win in the long run. Apple appears to have created an ingenious and obviously superior mobile payments system. But retailers control their own checkouts — they get to say who pays with what, not Apple. The retailers don't want Apple to monopolize a system that will produce a lot of valuable customer data. Their system, "CurrentC," will let them keep that data. The fight will be between Apple's system, which is simple and works universally as any credit card, and Wal-Mart's system, which is complicated and works only when a store agrees to adopt it. businessinsider.com

Kroger named Employer of the Year by Ohio Governor's Council on People with Disabilities  For its efforts to provide employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Kroger was also recognized earlier this year by the Marriot Foundation for People with Disabilities. The grocer works with the foundation's Bridges from School to Work program, which helps transition young people with disabilities from high school to the workforce. progressivegrocer.com

West Coast port squeeze could ruin holiday shopping - Retailers affected as labor dispute persists  A shortage of transportation equipment and possible labor disruptions at ​the Los Angeles/Long Beach port complex, ​the nation's busiest, is delaying shipping containers for up to three weeks, threatening timely delivery to retailers for the holiday season. The delays are affecting retailers including JC Penney, Macy's, Kohl's, Nordstrom, American Eagle, Ralph Lauren and Carter's, according to three people with direct knowledge of the situation. Retail giant Wal-mart Stores recently diverted 300 shipment containers to Oakland to avoid the congestion, one person said. The problem stems from a shortage of trucking equipment, called chassis, but the National Retail Federation in a statement said protracted labor negotiations were an issue, too. cnbc.com

Sears Layoffs Swell To 7,000, Closing Distribution Center, More Stores

Dangerous Contact Lenses sold in San Diego
The Department of Homeland Security issued a warning about the dangers of purchasing decorative contact lenses, popular around Halloween, from costume stores and online without a prescription. The multi-agency task force has seized more than 20,000 pairs of contact lenses nationwide, dubbed "Operation Double Vision." Agents warn there are still some on shelves in San Diego, according to DHS. An employee at The Crypt in North Park said the store does sell contact lenses without a prescription. They were even displayed in a glass case, advertised for $19.99 per pair. Doctors and Homeland Security Agents say not only is selling contact lenses without a prescription illegal, it's dangerous. fox5sandiego.com

Last week's most popular news article --

Sears to close over 100 stores and lay off 5,457 employees - many before Christmas  At least 46 Kmart stores, 30 Sears department stores and 31 Sears Auto Centers are scheduled to close before the end of January, said the report. The company, which is struggling to reduce costs as its sales dwindle, closed 75 Kmart stores and 21 Sears stores in the first half of 2014. It said last week that it would lease out seven stores, including the one at Pennsylvania's King of Prussia Mall, to discount fashion chain Primark for an undisclosed amount. Sears had 1,077 Kmart stores and 793 Sears stores in the United States as of Aug. 2. The company had 226,000 U.S. employees as of Feb. 1. reuters.com

How Criminals Are Using ATM Skimming to Get Your PIN & Under Your Skin
One would think that hackers have shifted their focus to the mobile payments world as consumers gravitate toward a more mobile-everything lifestyle. However, criminals find continued, even growing, interest in ATM skimming because it's very hard to catch them. Unless caught in the act, it is easy for criminals to stay clear from authorities as they are constantly moving from ATM to ATM, all while cashing in incredible amounts of private banking information and customer PIN codes. Criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated in creating thinner and smaller skimming devices that are harder to detect. They are also finding ways to make skimmers easier to install, and cameras to monitor PIN code input are becoming smaller and easier to hide. The innovation for thinner and smaller devices can be found in various forms, but there are four growing variations that banks and retailers should be particularly aware of: Bluetooth-enabled skimmers, mini-skimmers, stereo skimming, and 3D-printed skimmers. banktech.com

Fencing Operation Busted in Seattle - Convenience Store - Investigation Ongoing - Retailer's Alert  Seattle Police busted an alleged "fencing" operation this week that was doing a brisk business in stolen laptops, cell phones and cameras. Police had received information that a small, cluttered convenience store on a busy street near Rainier Beach was doing a lot of fencing in stolen goods -- buying and selling electronics, stolen in a rash of robberies in the neighborhood. When officers walked into the store with a search warrant on Thursday, that was the end result of a chain of events that had started when robberies began to pick up speed in South Seattle toward the end of summer. When police walked in with the search warrant and found the trove of stolen goods they arrested the 48-year-old shop owner for trafficking in stolen property, according to an SPD statement. Detectives requested that the exact location not be disclosed as they continue their investigation. "It's pretty bad, the number of phones we found here," said South Precinct burglary/theft Sergeant Steve Daman. The back room was also stuffed with laptops and cameras. Investigators also found new clothes, shoes and bed spreads still in their packaging. In another room, a pile of bicycles sat next an inoperative industrial refrigerator. Along with the more than 250 smartphones and hundreds of cameras, computers, watches and instruments found in the store - a number of which Robbery Detectives have already tied to crimes in Rainier Beach - detectives also found $13,000 in cash, boxes of untaxed cigarettes illegally imported from Vietnam, and cabinets filled with bags of Khat -- a plant leaf stimulant classified by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Schedule-1 controlled substance.  skyvalleychronicle.com

Sheriff's detectives said the shoplifters targeted clothing at retailers such as Bealls Outlet, Sports Authority, Hot Topic, Foot Locker, Rainbow, Crush Boutique, Dillard's, Kohl's, Toys R Us, Cotton On, and Burlington Coat Factory. The eight people arrested combined for 21 felonies and 17 misdemeanors, the sheriff's office said.

Lake Worth. FL Woman Attempts To Defraud Target Store
A 38-year-old Lake Worth woman attempted to file a slip and fall claim against Target. However, investigators said surveillance video showed the lady sit down intentionally on the floor, which is why she is now in jail. The Florida Department of Financial Services' Fraud Division said Margaret Dagniewska allegedly told a representative of Target that she slipped and fell on a "watery substance", causing injuries to her back, legs, neck and shin on Oct. 22, 2013. The Target representative looked at the surveillance video, which showed Dagniewska just sitting down on the floor. On the day the incident took place, a Target employee allegedly overheard her talking in the Dutch language on the phone with her mother. Unbeknownst to Dagniewska, the employee also speaks Dutch, and heard her told her mother that she just sat down. Paramedics came to the store but refused to transport her to the hospital. According to the employee, Dagniewska left Target with her mother a short time later. Another employee checked the floor where Dagniewska supposedly fell and did not notice anything wet on it.

The age old question of 'why did you take that step back in your career' will diminish in the future. It may even be perceived as a positive.
