California Police Chiefs and Retailers say: No on Prop 47
By Joe LaRocca, Vice President & Senior Advisor, Loss Prevention for RetaiLPartners On Nov. 4, Californians will be voting on several important Propositions. You might have seen a television ad lately praising the benefits of Proposition 47, known as the "Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act." Like many recent propositions and legislative bills, this one is misleading and dangerously named, for several reasons. Prop 47 is essentially decriminalizing conduct that causes great economic costs to retailers and the community. This proposal ignores the fact that there are criminals whose very business is to steal. This law does nothing to discourage that conduct, and in fact, encourages it, by keeping the amount of any theft under $950, and providing no felony consequence for possession of controlled substances, absent a very narrow particular prior criminal history.  linkedin.com

Home Depot's data breach cost credit unions nationwide $60M - Fraud= 60% of total cost ($36M) - 7.2M Cards  The largest retailer data theft in history (so far, Christmas is coming) has already been the subject of lawsuits from two Pennsylvania credit unions in federal court. The suit seeks class action status for all financial institutions that were caught in the 50 million-plus card breach. CUNA reports that 7.2 million of credit union issued debit and credit cards were affected and had to be re-issued. The average cost per card was $8.02, which includes re-issuing the card itself, paying for fraudulent charges, and paying additional staff costs associated with account monitoring. Fraud accounted for 60 percent of the total cost, averaging $4.89 per card. This number indicates that even if no fraud had occurred the breach would have still cost the retailer over three dollars per breached card. pymnts.com

French Court tells Apple Stores 'adjust your surveillance systems - too intrusive constantly watching employees beyond public space'  French government privacy agency has warned Apple to adjust the video surveillance systems at four of its retail stores, saying they are too intrusive by constantly watching employees beyond the public retail space. The Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL) said if the company doesn't comply, it could be subject to fines. The involved stores are Opéra, Rosney 2, Bordeaux and Parly 2 stores. Every Apple store around the world has a video surveillance system to protect the company's assets and employees. The systems routinely cover the front-of-house space accessible to the public, but also the Genius Rooms, hallways, product stockrooms and other back-of-house areas. In the U.S., federal law generally allows video surveillance of employees, except in restrooms or other private spaces. However, most European countries strictly regulate the permissible extent of workplace video surveillance. In this case, the CNIL said, "Surveillance is carried out disproportionately to the purpose of preventing harm to people and property," and called it "an affront to privacy." They ordered that the cameras be repositioned, or the video framing be masked to provide sufficient employee privacy. In addition, employees should be instructed as to which areas are monitored and which are not. ifoapplestore.com

Court rules cops can demand fingerprints, not passcodes, to unlock smartphones
A Virginia Circuit Court decided this week that cops can't make you cough up your smartphone passcode because it violates the 5th Amendment, which bars the state from forcing you to incriminate yourself. Fingerprints are a different story. They're similar to DNA and handwriting, Judge Steven Frucci ruled. cio.com
Macy's, Kohl's announce Thanksgiving hours; Walmart, Target, Best Buy remain mum  Macy's and Kohl's will both open their doors on Thanksgiving Day at 6 p.m. There are also holiday shopping holdouts. Costco, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and GameStop have all said they won't open on Thanksgiving. They're going to wait and launch their Black Friday deals on, well, Friday. Last year, Walmart opened at 6 p.m., and Kmart caused a stir with its decision to open its stores at 6 a.m. Thanksgiving Day, without closing at least for a few hours during the traditional dinner time like other stores.  abc17news.com

The year of in-store pick up is here - How does it impact fraud?
In-store pickup now accounts for about 15 percent of all online Target orders. Walmart, with its major rural footprint, has offered in-store pickup since 2007. In-store pickup has the added benefit of drawing in foot traffic, something brick-and-mortar stores have struggled with as the popularity of online shopping has risen. "If they're any good," said Richard Jaffe, an analyst with Stifel Nicolaus, "once you're in the store they're going to tempt you with a lot of other stuff. "In-store pickup also allows stores to avoid the cost of shipping - and perhaps most important, free shipping, which retailers have increasingly offered to stay competitive. nytimes.com

Carjacking victim sues Phipps Plaza Mall Security & Allied Barton Security - Failed to Provide Adequate Security She is accusing the mall of neglecting violent crime there -- knowing about it but doing nothing about it. And she says mall management and mall security had "knowledge of criminal activity" on-going at the mall, and "failed to warn" customers, and failed "to provide adequate security protection." Phipps Plaza management emailed 11Alive News, saying that that night, mall security showed up within minutes, and then helped Atlanta police crack the case. And management says the mall is constantly working with police to improve security. 11alive.com

Retail Skirmish Blocks Apple Pay at Checkout Line
A consortium of retailers called Merchant Customer Exchange plans to offer a rival mobile payment system next year which could direct debit customers' checking accounts, instead of using a credit card. It also will be designed to track customer buying patterns to be able to offer targeted promotions. In the meantime, some of the group's biggest members, like CVS, 7-Eleven, Best Buy and Wal-Mart, are nixing so-called NFC payments even though they already have the point-of-sale technology in stores. Other retailers that aren't part of MCX, like Starbucks and Taco Bell, are opting to develop their own mobile payment services, and so aren't taking Apple Pay either. newsfactor.com

Starbucks Reveals that Mobile Payments Account for 16% of Transactions
Prior to the recent launch and release of Apple Inc's Apple Pay, Starbucks is already into mobile payments. In fact, the giant coffee chain said it is already handling about 7 million mobile payment transactions each week in all its locations across the US. That accounts for about 16% of overall transactions at its nationwide stores. It also accounts for up to 90% of total mobile payments in the country in 2013. morningnewsusa.com

Costco isn't the only store closed on Thanksgiving Day  Once upon a time, you could eat Thanksgiving dinner without worrying whether you might miss a doorbuster deal. But in the last couple of years, stores have been falling over each other to offer Black Friday sales on Thursday itself, opening their doors before many people are even done with their turkey. Now, some stores are saying enough. GameStop and Nordstrom joined Costco in deciding they will remain closed on Thursday and open for Black Friday on, well, Friday. cnn.com

CNP Fraud Rapidly Rising Irrespective of EMV Adoption
As the United States looks to implement EMV, Javelin examined the United Kingdom EMV market as a looking glass into the future U. S. market. While the rapid proliferation of EMV adoption in the UK produced a significant drop in POS fraud, it did not address where card fraud is most problematic-e-commerce and m-commerce. Javelin Strategy & Research's report, Fixing CNP Fraud: Solutions for a Pre-and Post-EMV U.S. Market warns that online card fraud will rapidly increase despite and irrespective of the US transition to EMV. Card-not-present (CNP) fraud in the United States is expected to be nearly 4 times greater that POS card fraud in 2018. CNP fraud will grow substantially, but this growth is due to an increase in transaction e-commerce volume and has little to do with a change in criminal behavior post-EMV. "EMV is not a holistic solution to card fraud and therefore should be implemented in parallel with solutions that are designed to deal with where fraud is growing the most---online," according to Nick Holland, Senior Payment Analyst at Javelin Strategy & Research. "CNP fraud cannot be underestimated in growth or expense." yahoo.com

How to prevent fraud with tokenization
The high-visibility data breaches that have affected retailers in the past year-those of Target Corp. and the Home Depot Inc., for example-have all resulted in consumer payment card information being stolen by hackers. One way to make a site less enticing to cybercriminals is to minimize the amount of data a retailer holds. That's why RepairClinic.com Inc., an online-only retailer that sells replacement parts for household appliances and other equipment, moved from encrypting and storing payment card data itself to First Data Corp. tokenizing it a few years ago. Tokenization converts card numbers into codes, called tokens, which act as a proxy during most of the payment process. Those codes, if stolen by hackers, are essentially useless information. Apple Pay, a new payment system Apple Inc. introduced last month along with its new smartphones, is the most recent and perhaps most-publicized user of tokenization. That security technology enables RepairClinic to store and use those tokens within its systems without security concerns because it doesn't retain any useful card data. The retailer only stores the last four digits of a customer's card to enable it to identify transactions to process returns. internetretailer.com

Two more charged in Winnipeg ORC ring
Winnipeg police have charged two more people in connection to several clothing store robberies in the city. A 17-year-old girl is charged with numerous counts of theft as well as failing to comply with court orders. An 18-year-old man is charged with robbery, possession of a weapon and failure to comply with court conditions. A 21-year-old woman and two girls, aged 16 and 17, were arrested and charged earlier this week for their alleged role in the robberies, which occurred between Aug. 27 and Oct. 27. Police said the investigation is continuing and further arrests are expected. cbc.ca

ORC violent repeat shoplifter stealing car batteries attacks Kmart Loss Prevention officer - Police Need Help Identifying in Cobb County, GA  Police told Channel 2's Ross Cavitt that employees have their eyes open for a short, balding shoplifter who had been spotted before, wheeling carts full of merchandise out the front door. During his most recent trip to Kmart, a female loss prevention officer on the phone with 911 intercepted him as he wheeled out a cart full of car batteries. They noticed him and followed him and met him at the front door of the Kmart," said Cobb County police Officer Michael Bowman.

GA Tech says $475K stolen by employees at Georgia Tech Research Institute; $160,000 spent at Barnes and Noble and other online retailers  GA Tech says seven employees have either been fired or resigned in the wake of a year long investigation into P-Card abuse. Investigators at Georgia Tech say the people named in the report stole nearly a half a million dollars, all of it taxpayer money in the form of federal grants. The men all worked at the Georgia Tech Research Institute's Advanced Concepts Lab. They had titles of respect. James Fraley was a senior research technologist when he resigned amid the allegations last October. James Maloney was chief scientist, John Schultz was deputy director, James Acree a branch chief and Stephen Blalock was a principal research engineer when dismissed in February. Alan Golivesky was assistant director of financial operations when he resigned in November 2013 and Lon Pringle was the GRTI Deputy Director in May, when he retired. According to the report, the men played different roles in the scheme. Some were actively involved, others were simply in a position to notice the fraud and didn't, and therefore failing to stop it. Investigators say the men bought supplies for the company, spending more than $160,000 at Barnes & Noble and at online retailers like Amazon. Investigators believe one of the men ordered solar panels, and altered the invoice to hide the fact, they ended up at his house, not the lab. Invoices were also altered to cover nearly $5,000 in hunting equipment, spent at the online retailer Man's Toys. Other invoices investigators say, were completely made up, to move money from the school to their personal accounts. The FBI is also investigating since most of the money came from federal grants. A spokesperson for Georgia Institute of Technology says all of the money has been repaid. 11alive.com

Man killed in 'brazen' shooting in Toronto Shopping Center third sibling from same family to die  Jamal Roache was only 15 when his older sister and brother were gunned down nine months apart in horrific shootings that both made headlines. Now a dozen years later, at 26, he has met a similar fate and becomes the third sibling in the Roache family to die by bullets. His gangland-style assassination Thursday night in a strip mall in the north end of the city was captured by surveillance cameras -- graphic footage investigators have released in the hopes of encouraging witnesses to come forward. "It's a brazen, brazen attack," Det.-Sgt. Steve Ryan said Saturday. "Nobody deserves to die like that." He said the city's 48th murder victim of the year, who was known to police, was gunned down around 11:30 p.m. "As he was walking through the mall, he was being stalked by a dark blue or black Honda Civic," Ryan said. "Our shooter, the suspect, exits the passenger side of this Honda Civic, ambushes Jamal, who was walking by himself, and shoots him several times." Jamal subsequently died as a result of gunshot wounds, he said, adding the victim was hit six to eight times. In the video, the dying man is seen on the ground, reaching out for help, as the gunman hops back into the car's passenger seat and drives off. thestar.com

HIV Positive Woman Steals Walmart Food, Tries To Infect Employee With Disease in Dallas  An HIV-positive woman tried to steal several frozen dinners from Walmart earlier this week in Dallas. NY Daily News reports that 25-year-old Diamond Lawrence allegedly attacked a Walmart employee at the Forest Lane store "in a bid to give him the virus" in order to get away with $11 worth of frozen food. Diamond Lawrence made it outside of the store with her stolen dinners until an employee stopped her. As she was being escorted back inside of the store, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reports that Diamond Lawrence "bragged about being HIV positive." Lawrence even threatened the employee with the disease, according to police. Police officers were able to confirm that Diamond Lawrence was wearing a medical wristband at the time that officially identified her as being HIV positive. The HIV-positive woman attacked the Walmart employee by scratching his neck. Police believe that Diamond Lawrence was deliberately trying to draw blood from the employee and expose him to the virus. inquisitr.com

Lufkin, TX Police seeking Shoplifting suspect wanted for DVD thefts and Assaulting Police Officers  October 24 of this year, a man stole a dozen or so DVDs from Sam's Club in Lufkin. Security videos showed that a white wearing a tan work shirt and a hat was responsible for the theft. One week later, on Halloween, the suspect again stole DVDs from Sam's Club by concealing them in his pants. This time, police officers meet the suspect as he exited the building, told him he was under arrest for theft, and attempted to restrain him and recover the stolen merchandise. The suspect fought his way free from the officers, ran to his vehicle, and fled the area. Two officers received cuts and abrasions during the struggle. Theft wasn't enough for this criminal; he had to add Robbery (by causing injury during the commission of theft), and Resisting Arrest to his list of crimes. ktre.com

Even When It's a Load of Crisco, Cargo Theft Is No Joke
The best cargo thieves are expert planners. They are patient and precise and pull off million-dollar heists without pulling a gun. They strike nearly anywhere cargo moves - rest stops, parking lots, ware­houses. Two weeks ago, bandits made off with 18 tons of Crisco from a tow lot in St. Petersburg. At first it was funny. Who needs $100,000 worth of shortening? But the FBI calls cargo theft a $30 billion a year problem, a sobering economic hit that can translate to higher retail prices. "Cargo theft is a much bigger issue in America than anyone really believes," said Marion County sheriff's Detective Erik Dice, a member of a statewide theft task force. The thieves particularly like Florida. The state accounted for nearly a quarter of the country's reported cargo thefts between March and May, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. Established rings of Cuban nationals move many of the stolen goods into the Miami area, a port region with ample warehouses and distributors for storing and selling the merchandise. theledger.com

Stop Calling People Out
Everyone makes mistakes, loses their temper or has habits that can get under our skin, but the key when addressing these issues is not to call the person out, but to call them forth. Don't make the person feel like they're wrong and scold them, help them get better and coach them. Build up, don't tear down

In this market, being flexible and open minded about any and all opportunities is critical if one expects to get back in quickly. 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. That you were able to understand the market, accept a lesser position, stay in the game, and get back in quickly. As opposed to riding it out a year or so and being forced to take that lesser position. There's a lot to say about the individual who just wants to be in the game and is willing to do what it takes!
