Retailers Estimate Holiday Return Fraud will Cost them $3.4 Billion This Holiday Season, According to NRF Survey  

Download complete survey data; view sample charts and graphs in NRF's Retail Insight Center

As one of the most serious, but often most misunderstood, retail loss prevention issues, return fraud costs retailers billions of dollars every year. According to NRF’s 2013 Return Fraud Survey* completed by loss prevention executives at 62 retail companies, the industry will lose an estimated $8.76 billion to return fraud this year, and $3.39 billion during the holiday season alone. Overall, 5.8 percent of holiday returns are fraudulent, up slightly from 4.6 percent last year.

“While coverage of this issue paints return fraud as one of the ‘less severe’ retail crimes, the fact of the matter is that returning used or stolen items, or even using false tender to purchase items is fraud, period,” said NRF Vice President of Loss Prevention Rich Mellor. “Recent efforts to combat fraudulent activity are slowly starting to work, but criminals are becoming more savvy and technologically advanced in their methods, making it even more difficult for retailers and law enforcement to keep up with the growing problem.”

According to the survey, nearly all (94.8%) retailers polled say they have experienced the return of stolen merchandise in the last year, and 69.0 percent report that they have experienced the return of merchandise purchased on fraudulent or stolen tender. Additionally, 29.3 percent have found criminals using counterfeit receipts to return merchandise. Employee return fraud or collusion with external sources is also a big problem for retailers: nine in 10 (93.1%) report they’ve dealt with this issue in the past year. For the first time, NRF asked retailers about their experiences with return fraud and a connection to organized retail crime groups: 60.3 percent have experienced this in the past year.

One of the biggest issues for retailers is the practice of ‘wardrobing,’ or the return of used, non-defective merchandise like special occasion apparel and certain electronics. Many companies have employed specific tactics to help curb this unethical practice, and are beginning to see the fruits of their labor: 62.1 percent report having been victims of wardrobing, down from 64.9 percent last year.

The survey found 15.5 percent say they have dealt with e-receipt return fraud. And, as online sales continue to grow, 82.5 percent say they allow customers to return merchandise purchased online in their stores.

The problem of return fraud has forced many retailers to adopt policies which require customers returning merchandise to show identification. Retailers estimate that 13.97 percent of the returns made throughout the year without a receipt are fraudulent and, as a result, nearly three-quarters (73.7%) now require customers returning items without a receipt to show identification; 12.3 percent of retailers require customers making returns with a receipt to show ID, and more than one-quarter (26.3%) say they do not require identification during the return process.

When asked about return fraud and the various types of tender, almost half (49.1%) say they have witnessed an increase in gift cards/store merchandise credit fraud in the past year. One in five (19.6%) say they have seen a decrease in the fraudulent use of cash, but more than a quarter (26.8%) have seen an increase; half report no change (48.2%). Additionally, three in 10 (29.1%) say they’ve witnessed an increase in credit card fraud, 18.2 percent say those incidents have decreased and more than half (52.7%) say there’s no change from last year. This is the first time NRF has asked about tender fraud and changes.

On a scale of one to five, one being not at all effective, retailers rank their current policies at 3.55 in terms of being effective in deterring return fraud.

About the survey

NRF’s 2013 Return Fraud Survey polled senior loss prevention executives at 62 retail companies in October and November, 2013. Executives from discount stores, department stores, drug stores, supermarkets and specialty stores completed the survey.

NRF is the world’s largest retail trade association, representing discount and department stores, home goods and specialty stores, Main Street merchants, grocers, wholesalers, chain restaurants and Internet retailers from the United States and more than 45 countries. Retail is the nation’s largest private sector employer, supporting one in four U.S. jobs – 42 million working Americans. Contributing $2.5 trillion to annual GDP, retail is a daily barometer for the nation’s economy. NRF’s This is Retail campaign highlights the industry’s opportunities for life-long careers, how retailers strengthen communities, and the critical role that retail plays in driving innovation.

ICSC: November sales fall short
Sales at U.S. chain stores were up 2.1% in November, or 3% without the effects of gasoline sales, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers.

iBeacon Debuts In Apple Stores Today
Apple will have another way to communicate with and track visitors within its U.S. retail stores, using the new iBeacon messaging and locating system that’s built into iPhones and iPads. According to an Associated Press story, Apple has installed iBeacon software on several store display products within each store, and has mounted stand-alone iBeacon devices at strategic locations.

Can you 3D print an Hermes handbag?
3D printing's disruptive potential in the luxury goods market is a tad overstated. 3D printing will make it easier to produce molds needed for simple parts. But beyond that? There isn't much. While current plastic 3D printers are great at printing tchotchkes and toys from open-source plan sites like Thingaverse, they are terrible at printing intricate objects with moving parts, like a zipper. Also the materials they are constructed from are of higher quality than what counterfeiters could get without dramatically eating into their bottom line. As wondrous as 3D printing is, you cannot print a sheet of pebbled leather or a gold band without ponying up some cash. (Source

Canada tightens rules on prepaid credit cards and on accuracy of measurements retailers use  The federal government is moving ahead with its consumer friendly agenda, unveiling new rules for prepaid credit cards, more inspections at gas pumps and plans to create a national financial code to streamline regulations and enhance consumer rights. The measures were announced at two separate events involving three cabinet ministers Tuesday morning and appear to be tied to the throne speech pledge to make consumer protection a key policy in the two years leading up to the 2015 election campaign. The government said it will introduce new regulations banning expiry dates on prepaid credit cards, as well as ensure card issuers aren’t allowed to impose fees that eat away at a card’s balance within the first year. At a separate event, Industry Minister James Moore said the government will give inspectors more tools to enforce the accuracy of measurements used by retailers to charge customers, whether it’s at gas pumps or grocery stores. The proposed regulations will call for greater frequency of inspections and increased fines for offenders. (Source

Hiring and Big Data: Those Who Could Be Left Behind
Recruiters, HR managers, and investors have always sought better ways of identifying who fits and has potential, and how to allocate opportunities to them. Big data holds the promise of not only vastly improved efficiencies but also bringing greater objectivity to our very unconsciously biased human decision-making. And without a doubt, predictive “people analytics” are starting to transform how employers hire, fire, and promote. As a recent Atlantic article argues, “What begins with an online screening test for entry-level workers ends with the transformation of nearly every aspect of hiring, performance assessment, and management.” (Source

How to start thinking like a data scientist: a managerial skill that is becoming more and more essential  Slowly but steadily, data are forcing their way into every nook and cranny of every industry, company, and job. Managers who aren’t data savvy, who can’t conduct basic analyses, interpret more complex ones, and interact with data scientists are already at a disadvantage. Companies without a large and growing cadre of data-savvy managers are similarly disadvantaged. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a data scientist or a Bayesian statistician to tease useful insights from data. This article will help you become more data literate, and it provides a small exercise that will open your eyes to the millions of small data opportunities, and enable you to work a bit more effectively with data scientists, analytics, and all things quantitative.

How is Big Data Transforming Your 80/20 Analytics?
Even today, most organizations technically struggle to answer even the simplest 80/20 analytics questions: Which 20% of customers generate 80% of the profits? Which 20% of suppliers are responsible for 80% of customer UX complaints? What 20% of customers facilitate 80% of the most helpful referrals? Indeed, even organizations where top management keeps their eyes glued to KPI-driven dashboards have trouble agreeing on what their Top Ten Most Important Customer/Client 80/20 analytics should be. That’s not good because Big Data promises to redefine the fundamentals of the 80/20 rule. (Source

Seems like the longer a process goes, the harder it is for everyone to stay focused on the initial purpose and maintain the enthusiasm as when it began. Time and difficulty have their impact, but maintaining the passion and enthusiasm is up to each person. With the last step seemingly the easiest, it is usually the most critical step of all and many tend to approach it as if it is a mere formality when, in reality, that last step can be the biggest and, if you do not watch out, it could be a step right off the cliff.
