Payment Card Fraud Losses Continue to Grow in the U.S. With a Staggering 14.5% Increase in 2012 for a Total Annual Fraud Loss of $US 5.33 Billion Fraud losses on all general purpose and private label, signature and PIN payment cards reached $5.33 billion in the U.S. last year, up 14.5% according to a recent report released by Nilson Report. This increase in card fraud is a staggering number which underlies the importance to the payment networks in introducing EMV Cards into the United States. (Source wsj.com)

Identity theft cost Americans $10B more LY than all other property crimes
The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) has a sobering new report finding identity theft cost Americans $10 billion more last year than all other property crimes measured by the National Crime Victimization Survey. While identity theft cost Americans $24.7 billion in 2012, losses for household burglary, motor vehicle theft, and property theft totaled just $14 billion. •85% of theft incidents involved the fraudulent use of existing accounts, rather than the use of somebody's name to open a new account.

Revelations That Ikea Spied on Its Employees Stir Outrage in France
Regional court in Versailles, near Paris, is now examining whether Ikea executives in France broke the law by ordering personal investigations — not only of Ms. Paulin but of hundreds of other people over the course of a decade. A review of the court records by The New York Times indicates that Ikea’s investigations were conducted for various reasons, including the vetting of job applicants, efforts to build cases against employees accused of wrongdoing, and even attempts to undermine the arguments of consumers bringing complaints against the company. Between 2002 and 2012, the finance department of Ikea France approved more than 475,000 euros in invoices from investigators. Last month, the company’s current chief, Stefan Vanoverbeke, and financial director, Dariusz Rychert, were questioned along with Mr. Baillot for 48 hours by the judicial police before being placed under formal investigation. That set in motion a process in which the next step, if it comes, would be the filing of criminal charges. The three executives, along with nine others, are suspected of breaking the law by either knowing of or actively participating in the systematic collection of individuals’ personal information, including criminal histories, automobile registrations and property records, officials say.

Finding it hard to fill jobs when a relo is involved - well here's why - relocations down 50% from 90's  Economists find it troubling that migration rates have been in decline lately. The proportion of Americans moving has fallen to new postwar lows in the past few years. According to Census Bureau data from 2013, about 4.8 million Americans moved across state lines in the previous year. That is down from 5.7 million in 2006 and 7.5 million in 1999. All in all, the percentage of Americans moving across state lines has fallen by about half since the 1990s. The slowdown represents a tectonic shift in our economy and labor market: It has affected a huge swath of Americans across all industries and of all incomes and ages. (Source nytimes.com)

Reinventing Malls
In a bid to attract more luxury tenants, including restaurants, malls are expanding with more street-facing storefronts. The goal is to allow high-end shoppers and diners to go into stores without having to walk through the food court — or the hordes of everyday consumers. “We’re repositioning our portfolio,” said Emerick Corsi, president of real estate asset services at Forest City“We’re bringing better department stores, better fashion and more electronic marketing. We’re bringing patio dining and upscale retail. Restaurants are as important as department stores. They do more volume than department stores can do. The average restaurant does $13 million a year. That’s why we want to turn our malls inside out.” (Source wwd.com)

Florida remains a hotspot for cargo and tractor-trailer thefts
Florida is a hotbed for cargo thefts. From baby formula to prescription drugs, meat to chocolate, electronics to washing machines, no product is off limits for cargo thieves. Tractor-trailers filled with merchandise vanish from parking lots and other spots, and are often found abandoned in South Florida. By the time law-enforcement catches up with the vehicles and containers, the cargo is long gone. (Source orlandosentinel.com)

Burlington, Mass. police add patrols to thwart retail crime during holiday season

Shooting at the Queen subway station in downtown Toronto sends holiday shoppers running for their lives Friday night  Shots rang out inside the station around 8 p.m. Friday, sending an 18-year-old man to hospital with life-threatening injuries. The station connects to the south end of the busy Eaton Centre shopping mall. Some reported hearing as many as 15 shots. It was one of the busiest Fridays, obviously, of the month, and all of a sudden the store just got empty, all of a sudden, and we didn't know why. And as soon as we looked out the windows there was a lot of police,” he said. The SIU’s Carm Piro said a total of nine officers responded to reports of a "suspicious person" on a subway train. He said the person had a weapon, but wouldn't elaborate. Four officers are believed to have fired their guns. The SIU has assigned nine investigators and four forensic experts to investigate the incident. (Source cbc.ca)

Nine of the 27 plead guilty in $300M Port Newark, NJ. counterfeit smuggling operation  Nine members of a counterfeit-goods smuggling operation — which allegedly schemed to import fake brand-name handbags, shoes, perfume and other items from China to Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal — have pleaded guilty in the past two weeks to various roles in the scheme, authorities said today. Some 27 defendants were charged last year in a massive operation that authorities say is one of the largest counterfeit-goods smuggling and distribution conspiracies ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice. Along with the nine recent guilty pleas, eight other defendants have pleaded guilty — one of whom has been sentenced — authorities said, while 10 defendants’ charges are pending. The phony shipped goods included brands such as Ugg boots and Burberry and Coach handbags — and authorities have said the smuggled goods, if legitimate, would have had a retail value of more than $300 million. Most defendants arrested were Chinese, and some were U.S. citizens, Fishman said. (Source nj.com)

Sometimes when you're moving so fast and dealing with the mistakes of the day, the frustration levels peak and one can tend to forget that sometimes you've just got to stop, listen and take a breath and maybe talk to a friend about it all. If it's a good friend, they'll bring you back into focus and make sure you don't react too aggressively and make the mistakes even worst. There aren't many friends like that nor ones that you can absolutely trust. But if you've got a couple, make sure you thank them as well for taking the time.
