UPDATE: Continued Coverage of NYC Racial Profiling Case

Sharpton, Barneys NY CEO discuss racial profiling  Civil rights activist Al Sharpton met with the CEO of Barneys New York on Tuesday to discuss allegations of racial profiling at the high-end retailer, while the New York state attorney general's office demanded its own meeting with Barneys and also Macy's. Two black customers accused Barneys of discrimination last week after they said they had lawfully purchased items but were detained by police on suspicion of credit card fraud. "We had a very candid and open meeting today to begin a dialogue," Sharpton said after the private meeting with Barneys CEO Mark Lee at Sharpton's National Action Network office in Harlem. Lee said Barneys' own initial investigation showed no employees were at fault in the two incidents, but he said the retailer does not tolerate discrimination and wants "to be part of the solution" to racial profiling. Macy's flagship Manhattan store also has been hit with a claim from a black actor that he was stopped because of his race while shopping. Macy's didn't comment on the litigation but said in a statement it was investigating. (Source lompocrecord.com)

Barneys case stirs talks on 'Shopping While Black'
Racial profiling has long been common on the shopping scene, with complaints from customers at luxury stores like Barneys New York to neighborhood diners. The New York Attorney General's Office has sent letters to the executives at both Barneys New York and Macy's East, citing allegations the stores profile customers based on race and national origin and stating that was prohibited under state and local civil rights law. "We offer our deepest sympathies' to the two alleged profiling victims, said Barneys CEO Mark Lee, adding that the retailer "has a policy of zero tolerance for discrimination in any form." Mr. Lee said Barney's would "cooperate fully" with the state attorney general. (Source crainsnewyork.com)
 

Kroger Knows Your Shopping Patterns Better Than You Do
Kroger, the Cincinnati-based grocery store chain, calls the 11 million pieces of direct mail it sends to customers each quarter “snowflakes” — because if any two are the same, it is a fluke. The redemption rate is over 70 percent within six weeks of the mailing. Kroger is the nation’s largest traditional grocery chain with more than 2,400 stores and $80.8 billion in sales last year, second only to Wal-Mart in grocery sales. Working with dunnhumby, the customer data specialist which so impressed the UK’s Tesco that the grocer bought the firm, Kroger tracks each customer as an individual. Those quarterly mailers contain 12 coupons specific to an individual household and are carefully designed. The upper left may offer a slightly esoteric product like a special cheese, while Tide may be lower on the flyer and the last two coupons might be experiments, such as adjacent products — a purchaser of baby food who doesn’t buy diapers might see an offer for diapers, for example. 80% of dunnhumby’s effort is focused on what it knows about a customer and 20 percent is focused on discovery.

New App Eliminates Card Swiping in Mobile Payments with Number Recognition Technology 
With new patent-pending technology from Tantrum Street, the days of credit and debit card swiping may be numbered. Tantrum’s Cartwheel Register app for mobile payments includes number recognition technology that detects and scans the digits directly from a customer’s plastic credit or debit card. When held in a smartphone or tablet camera’s field-of-view, the card number is instantly read, encrypted, tokenized and transmitted to the appropriate payment processors. The app never takes a picture of the card, and no card or primary account number information is ever stored on the device. Merchants also receive a guaranteed flat rate per transaction when using Cartwheel Register, while eliminating the need for costly PCI and EMV upgrades. Since the technology does not read a card’s magnetic stripe or EMV chip, each payment is designated as a card-not-present (CNP) transaction—but with a rate that rivals card-present levels.

Sorting out the Confusion over Mobile Payments  Mobile payments are constantly changing these days, from bitcoins to this new program in which your phone can create cryptographic tokens to be used as payment instead of credit card numbers. Credit card companies are embarking on a new program called tokenization, aimed to streamline the mobile payment system for consumers while keeping security. (Source wsj.com)


Finding Tech-Smart Talent a Tough Task for Retailers
Retailers see a need for functional competencies leaning toward technology and data skills, even more than general business and people management. But the survey revealed that 84 percent of retailers are worried that it will be challenging to find employees with these skills. Exacerbating the problem is the overall hiring trend: 93 percent of survey respondents said hiring will not decrease over the next two to three years. (Source apparel.edgl.com)

How Buyers Are Fighting Credit Card Fraud
Across the globe, about one in four credit and debit cardholders have been victimized by card fraud, according to data from ACI Worldwide. Card users in Mexico (44%) and the U.S. (42%) report the highest rates of card fraud -- what ACI phrases as having "direct experience" with fraud from credit and debit card use. Roughly half of credit and debit card consumers shelved their plastic and started using cash immediately after being sidelined by card fraud -- at least for a while. (Source thestreet.com)

New Study Connects Data Breaches to Alarmingly High Rates of Identity Theft
One in four U.S. consumers who suffered a data breach were also victims of identity fraud, according to a new study by Javelin and Identity Finder, "Data at Rest is Data at Risk." Of the 16 million victims notified in 2012 that their payment card information was compromised in a data breach, more than 25 percent of them also suffered identity theft. 4.4 million Americans were both notified that their payment card information was compromised in a data breach and suffered fraud on their existing credit or debit cards. The study examines three high-risk industries: retail, financial and healthcare, and also provides best-practice advice for sensitive data management. According to the study, retailers will remain prime targets for payment card breaches and fraud as long as payment cards remain a commonly accepted and popular payment method.

Many violent attacks on retail shopkeepers in the UK are not being reported; study shows 1 in 6 assaults go unreported  The shopworkers' Trade Union Usdaw has revealed interim results of their 2013 survey of violence threats and abuse against shopworkers. The report of the experiences of 1,844 shopworkers from across the UK confirms a worrying trend of retail staff suffering attacks and not reporting the incidents. Threats have come down from 36% to 34% but violent attacks have remained static at 4%, with one in six not reporting the assault. Over the last 10 years Usdaw has been working with employers on its Freedom from Fear campaign and figures reported annually in the British Retail Consortium Crime Survey have shown a steady improvement, but the survey confirms a high number of incidents go unreported.

“Brand Damage”; side effect of a cargo theft
One of the more problematic “side effects” of cargo theft for trucking companies and shippers alike is the issue of “brand damage,” especially when stolen goods are resold to consumers that may be made unsafe due to a variety of factors. “If pharmaceuticals and foods are stolen but are not kept at the correct temperatures, then resold back into the market and make consumers sick, that can come back and damage the brands not only of the shippers but of the carriers as well,” Don Hsieh, director of commercial and industrial marketing for Tyco Integrated Security, told Fleet Owner.

Felonious Deaths
The 48 felonious deaths occurred in 26 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. The number of officers killed as a result of criminal acts in 2012 decreased by 24 when compared with the 72 officers who died in 2011. The five- and 10-year comparisons show an increase of seven felonious deaths compared with the 2008 figure (41 officers) and a decrease of four deaths compared with 2003 data (52 officers).

Regions: Twenty-two of the felonious deaths occurred in the South, eight in the West, six in the Midwest, and six in the Northeast. Five of the deaths took place in Puerto Rico, and one officer was killed in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Suspects: Law enforcement agencies identified 51 alleged assailants in connection with the felonious line-of-duty deaths. Thirty-three of the assailants had prior criminal arrests, and eight of the offenders were under judicial supervision at the time of the felonious incidents.

Accidental Deaths
Forty-seven law enforcement officers were killed accidentally while performing their duties in 2012. The majority (22 officers) were killed in automobile accidents. The number of accidental line-of-duty deaths was down six from the 2011 total (53 officers).
