A Battle Well-Fought in the
Never-Ending ORC War

The ORC Numbers - The New Norm

The 20% Increase in Cases May Keep Increasing

While our Q1 2019 ORC Report showed the highest number of cases ever in the first quarter (432 ORC cases), we can't necessarily attribute that to any increase in activity whatsoever actually. So please be careful using the number with senior management because odds are the numbers may keep growing.

The steady increase in state ORC laws is probably just starting to have an impact on the number of cases being reported and prosecuted across the nation.

All the work that's been done over the last 10 to 15 years by the retailers, law enforcement, trade associations and ORCA's is truly starting to pay off finally. With virtually every state in the U.S. and Canada now being fully educated and aware of the ORC epidemic impacting retailers and how its various connections to the overall criminal activity in society necessitates public law enforcement's efforts.

DA's and Law Enforcement agencies across North America have, in our opinion, been well educated by the tireless efforts of so many dedicated retail LP executives and law enforcement personnel that we're only now starting to see the numbers that more truly reflect the activity.

Interestingly enough, we're also seeing a steady decrease in average case value over the last three years. Which when coupled with the increased cases means it's being identified and stopped faster and more often. Thus pointing to the impact the laws, awareness, technology, and investigative focus and quality is having.

All of which is a direct result of thousands of individuals, probably numbering over 50,000, when considering just five years of ORCA attendees, being involved in the battle.

A number of key individuals, too many to list, have played a huge role in spearheading and facilitating the collaborative effort with law enforcement. Really, probably representing the first and biggest public-private law enforcement collaborative effort in retail history, if not law enforcement's history as well. One that's now being copied in cybersecurity and a number of other industries.

The effort has been monumental and everyone should be proud that the laws and efforts are starting to produce results even in the face of this decriminalization trend. Because the reality is that ORC is fueled, driven and connected to global and local organized crime.

With the other trends we saw in Q1 being well reported on over the years, the four we feel warrant being called out are:

1) Philadelphia popping up for the first time in the Top 5 Cities as the #1 city.
2) Houston continues to lead in virtually every retail criminal category year after year.
3) The 60% men / 40% women breakdown of suspects seems to remain fixed.
4) The EMV roll-out and counterfeit credit cards had a major impact on the nation's retailers, with the big counterfeit credit card cases driven by international organized crime gangs pushing right up to the EMV roll-out.

The ORC effort has come a long way over the last 15 years, and all of you deserve to be recognized for a job well done. However, the war continues and everyone must remain vigilant in their effort, as North America's retailers are counting on all of you to help keep the stores safe.

Just some thoughts,
Gus Downing

Retail Industry Will Improve Over Next Yr.
Retail's 'survival of the fittest' will cull the weak, Moody's says

Competitive pressures and financial instability are thinning out the retail herd while larger, healthier companies are poised to grab market share. That's the premise of a new report from Moody's.

Moody's analysts refer to the failure of companies throughout the retail world as a "shake out of chronic underperformers." But that does not mean the industry as a whole is in decline.

Over the next year, the analysts expect the ratio of upgrades to downgrades to improve as larger retailers with healthy balance sheets take more market share from their weaker competitors.

Yet there are slices of the industry that are performing well, bringing in strong income and expanding footprints and capabilities. Among them, Moody's analysts pointed to warehouse clubs, discounters, dollar stores, off-price retailers and e-tailers as "particularly strong."

Oakland considers banning public facial recognition use
As San Francisco police amendments accepted

Oakland may not be far behind San Francisco in banning facial biometrics use by city departments, GovTech reports. The Oakland Public Safety Committee will consider a proposal to include a facial recognition ban with new city rules for surveillance technology later this month.

Berkeley, Palo Alto, and Santa Clara County have also all put restrictions on surveillance technology procurement, according to GovTech.

San Francisco votes on an ordinance introduced in January, which local police have been rallying opposition to, next week. The San Francisco Police Department has submitted amendments to the ordinance in that city, some of which an aide to ordinance sponsor Aaron Peskin says have been included. San Francisco Police Department spokesperson David Stevenson told GovTech. “We welcome safeguards to protect those rights while balancing the needs that protect the residents, visitors and businesses of San Francisco.”

A handful of police departments in the U.S. are known to use facial recognition, including in Washington County, Oregon, where police have reportedly used AWS Rekognition to try to identify dead bodies and people in suspect sketches.

ReposiTrak® Backed by the Federation of Wholesalers Distributors as Food Safety and Compliance Platform for the UK

UK: Employers Can Discipline Workers Before a Criminal Investigation Ends
The United Kingdom (U.K.) Court of Appeal recently confirmed that employers usually can conduct internal investigations and disciplinary procedures when an employee is also subject to related criminal proceedings.

If a worker is suspected of misconduct that could amount to a criminal offense, the employer will need to decide if it should carry out its own internal investigation and disciplinary procedures concurrently with the criminal investigation or wait for the latter to conclude first.

Employees nevertheless still may contest discipline conducted at the same time as criminal proceedings.

Society For HR is Posting Measles Outbreak Info
How to Respond to the Spread of Measles in the Workplace

Employers and educators are cooperating with health departments to fight the spread of measles, now at its highest number of cases in one year since 1994: 764.

Once an employer learns someone in the workplace has measles, it should immediately send the worker home and tell him or her not to return until cleared by a physician or other qualified health care provider, said Robin Shea, an attorney with Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The employer should then notify the local health department and follow its recommended actions, said Howard Mavity, an attorney with Fisher Phillips in Atlanta. The company may want to inform workers where and when employees might have been exposed. If employees were possibly exposed, the employer may wish to encourage them to verify vaccination or past-exposure status, directing those who are pregnant or immunocompromised to consult with their physicians, he said.

Editor's Note: Given the hot spots and the fact that one case could have a major impact on a small store and even cause it to have to close for a few days, LP needs to be aware of the risks. Especially with HR being alerted nationwide, as LP is in the stores more than HR. Just a thought - Gus Downing

Formerly Incarcerated Are an Overlooked Source of Talent
With millions of U.S. jobs going unfilled, employers looking for workers would be wise to expand their recruiting and hiring efforts to include people with criminal records. That message was driven home during a session at the recent 31st Annual Forum on Workplace Inclusion, held in Minneapolis.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is a leader in the effort to provide second chances to people with criminal backgrounds. SHRM created a pledge that more than 800 employers have signed, promising to give a second chance to qualified people with criminal records. The Getting Talent Back to Work website gives employers resources to learn about and recruit from this large group of potential talent.

The idea of recruiting and hiring people with criminal backgrounds—known as second-chance hiring—is gaining traction among policymakers, said business community leaders and worker advocates who spoke at the recent SHRM 2019 Employment Law & Legislative Conference.

Editor's Note: With the labor shortage impacting retailers nationwide and the pressure to fill store jobs this trend is growing and LP should be involved in the processes.

CLEAR Celebrates 10 Years

Taking a CLEAR Approach to Greater Success Against Retail Crime

Steering CLEAR
Ben Dugan, President
Rich Rossman, Vice President

Ben, by the time this newsletter is published, you will be named as the next president of C.L.E.A.R. You will be the first retailer ever to be elected to that post. Were you surprised by the Board’s decision? 
I was very honored, but not surprised. The whole idea of CLEAR is for law enforcement and retailers to work on equal footing to address retail crime on a national level. I am excited to be working with such a talented group of individuals that participate on our board and the nearly 4,000 property crime investigators that make up our membership.” My vision goes far beyond just investigations and into aiding the communities where our police officers serve and the retailers do business.

What can we expect at the 10th Annual CLEAR Conference in San Diego on October 28 -30, 2019? 
This year’s conference is truly going to be something special. We are putting the top Property Crimes Detectives together with the sharpest Corporate Investigators in the country to address retail crime on a national level. This year we dedicated full days on the agenda to discuss Preventing and Investigating Retail Violent Crime and Complex ORC / Fraud Investigations. The final day will cover Business Continuity and Public / Private partnerships in times of crises by representatives from F.E.M.A. We have a very impressive lineup of experts on the agenda.

10 Year Thoughts: Past, Present & Future
By Jason Davies, Vice President

As a founding member of CLEAR, I envisioned that the coalition we created would unite private industry on a national level to combat ORC together, which had been a significant opportunity and struggle in years past. Along with our law enforcement counterparts, we saw an opportunity to make a difference and increase the return on investment for our companies and agencies. We understood that to accomplish this, we needed to provide best in class training and a venue to not only learn but more importantly, network and share real-world experiences with the experts.

Needless to say, we have seen the working relationships between retail and law enforcement change dramatically in the last 10 years and it’s definitely been for the better. Never have we had such a trusting and productive working relationship as we do today. I see this as a by-product of all the hard work and efforts of our CLEAR board of directors, trainers and of course our members in the field. Read more here

Data Breach Fatigue
Why retailers should still care about data breaches

According to a study published by IBM, an organization has a 27% chance of suffering a breach of at least 1,000 records. There have been so many data breaches in the past several years that now it seems commonplace.

Many experts today believe that consumers are now suffering from “data breach fatigue.” Instead of being outraged, consumers either feel despondent or apathetic – often choosing to not discuss it with their friends or family. If pressed, most consumers will say that they care; however, a recent study by the Ponemon Institute found that 32% of data breach victims took no action to protect their data after a breach, and 55% took no action to guard against identity theft. It’s clear that our actions don’t match our words when it comes to data breaches.

Given the relative apathy from consumers and the likelihood that all organizations will eventually become the victim of a breach, it’s inevitable that businesses will choose to not dedicate an adequate amount of resources toward their cybersecurity programs. However, becoming the victim of a cybersecurity incident often results in the company having to pay substantial direct and indirect costs.

The costs of a significant data breach in the United States is astounding. According to the IBM study, the average cost of a breached record for a U.S. company was $233, and the average total cost of a data breach was nearly $8 million.

Cybersecurity Skills Shortage is Impacting Organizations
Seventy-four percent of organizations are impacted by the cybersecurity skills shortage, according to a study of cybersecurity professionals by the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).

How the 281 data breaches in Q1 2019 will impact companies
High-profile data breaches show no sign of slowing down. In the first quarter of 2019, there were 281 reported data breaches, exposing more than 4.53 billion records.

Companies have overlooked the fact that cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated with automation, and these 4.5 billion exposed records will become 4.5 billion new opportunities for criminals to commit automated fraud online. Organizations are not where they need to be when it comes to protecting their online ecosystems against attacks and the reality of the situation is troubling. And as 2019 progresses, companies will continue to be impacted by these data breaches—even if they’re not directly involved—here’s how.

Using Behavioral Biometrics to Pinpoint Online Fraudulent Activity
The tools can detect suspicious users even if the device in question has never been used to visit Principal’s website before.

Legitimate customers behave differently than fraudsters, Ms. Anderson said, which means monitoring mouse movements, typing speed and other variables can help the company stop crime. This technology is from BioCatch Ltd.

For example, when registering online for access to an existing 401(k) account, a legitimate user would quickly be able to enter familiar information such as his or her name, address and Social Security number with few or no errors. Fraudsters might pause frequently to check spelling, or they might copy and paste information from a separate document. Real customers rarely copy and paste their personal data, she said, and the tools Principal uses detect these differences.

Additionally, people who are registering for a new account would likely need time to navigate the website and find the right portal. A fraudster, often having scouted the website before arriving with stolen credentials, would know exactly where to click.

These and thousands of other indicators are fed into an algorithm to identify suspicious users. If enough red flags go up, the user is blocked from finishing registration.

“They get a common error message that tells them we can’t process the transaction at this time,” she said. “We’re very careful not to alert the person who might be a cybercriminal exactly why they’re not able to register,” which would make it easier for them to circumvent the tools.

The market for behavioral biometrics is expected to reach $2.5 billion by 2023, up from $871 million in 2018, according to a report published in July by market-research firm MarketsandMarkets.

Block rates of 0.25% are more typical, said Howard Edelstein, chief executive of BioCatch.

Since April 24, Fxmsp has been claiming to have gained remote access to the networks of three U.S.-based anti-virus firms after working nonstop for months to hack them, AdvIntl says. The hacker collective is offering access to the firms' networks and source code for $300,000.


Nedap applies for global patent for new Virtual Shielding technology

Nedap announces that the patent application is pending in over 120 countries for !D Cloud’s latest functionality: Virtual Shielding.

This smart allocation technology in the Nedap !D Cloud software platform, allows store staff to easily read RFID tags by using RFID handheld devices and automatically determine the actual (sub) location within a store of RFID tags in an accurate way.

This solves the problem of reading RFID tags through walls. The industry has long denied the feasibility of reliably determining individual tag locations without physical shielding however, Nedap has cracked the code on this.

New Skimmer Attack Steals Data From Over 100 Ecommerce Sites
Malicious JavaScript Steals Credit Card Data
A new skimmer attack that has injected malicious JavaScript into the payment sections of 105 ecommerce websites is stealing credit card and other customer data, security researchers warn.

Researchers at the Chinese IT firm Qihoo 360 Netlab write in a blog that this attack, which has been ongoing for about five months, has affected sites that sell a range of consumer goods, including high-end handbags, mountain bikes, baby products, wine and electronics.

This scheme involves a malicious domain name called magento-analytics[.]com, which Netlab researchers first noticed in October 2018 and have been tracking ever since. The attackers are apparently trying to disguise themselves by using a name that closely resembles Magento, a content systems management platform owned by Adobe and used by thousands of online retailers.

This is the second time in a week that security researchers have uncovered a skimmer attack targeting ecommerce websites. On May 3, Trend Micro described the activities of a new group called Mirrorthief, which targeted online campus stores in both the U.S. and Canada (see: JavaScript Sniffer Attacks: More Online Stores Targeted).

Many other attacks using skimmers, also called JavaScript sniffers, are closely associated with an umbrella group called Magecart, which has increased its activity over the last year (see: Magecart Nightmare Besets E-Commerce Websites).

Toms wins $1 million damages vs online seller
Accused of selling knockoff products, violating trademark

A federal court has granted a motion for default judgment and agreed that $1 million in statutory damages was "just" in a case alleging counterfeiting infringement of the TOMS trademark by an Internet-based e-commerce store selling and marketing items in South Florida.

Mycoskie alleges 2018prettycat marketed and sold products in South Florida with counterfeit and "confusingly similar" trademarks as their "TOMS" registered marks through its online stores on eBay. Mycoskie hired a licensed private investigation firm to look into the counterfeit marketing and sale of its TOMS branded items by placing orders for the goods online and having them shipped to addresses in the Southern District of Florida, according to the court filing.

Torrance, CA: Police arrest 4, recover $2 to $3 Million in stolen goods involving ‘Sophisticated Retail Theft Ring’
Police recovered millions of dollars worth of high-end merchandise in Torrance on Thursday, May 9, and arrested four Gardena residents suspected of knowingly purchasing stolen goods and reselling them at local swap meets. Months of investigation led authorities to identify four people taking part in what officials described as a “sophisticated retail theft ring,” in a Torrance Police Department press release. Torrance Police teamed up with El Segundo police detectives on the case.

Officers obtained warrants to arrest Edgar Baldeon, 41, Efrain Baldeon, 45, Jaciel Huerta, 28 and Maribel Sanchez, 46, and took them into custody Thursday. Authorities also recovered clothing, handbags, sunglasses, luggage and other stolen items worth between $2 million and $3 million dollars, police said. The items were allegedly taken from nearby department stores. Investigators believe the four people arrested on Thursday may have been responsible for crimes elsewhere in Southern California and other states.

Fairfield, CA: Teens Arrested In Connection To Series Of Retail Thefts Totaling Over $180K
Police say three 18-year-old females are in custody in connection to a series of retail thefts worth almost $200,000. The suspects are accused of stealing approximately $1,200 from the Hollister store in Fairfield, over $30,000 worth of merchandise from Victoria Secret, and over $150,000 from Ulta Beauty. Fairfield police said on April 9, employees at the Solano Mall Victoria’s Secret location reported theft of approximately $25,000 worth of merchandise.

The employees said three black females entered the store with empty shopping bags and filled them with the merchandise even after being confronted by employees. A Fairfield police community service officer (CSO) took a theft report and learned from an Asset Protection Investigator for Victoria’s Secret that the same females were suspects in a similar theft in San Mateo. Fairfield PD Detective Reyna took over the investigation and determined the females were also suspected of several other thefts throughout Northern California including a Feb. 2019 theft in Fairfield.

Tigard, OR: Police arrest New York man for using forged barcodes at Home Depot to steal $33,000 in merchandise
Jose Modesto Adon-Cano, 25, was arrested Monday on an aggravated theft charge. Police say Adon-Cano’s arrest comes after a loss prevention officer at a Tigard Home Depot observed him affixing forged barcodes to items last week. Loss Prevention at the store on Southwest Sequoia Parkway called law enforcement after reportedly observing the Adon-Cano placing circuit breakers and outlets in his shopping cart and then attaching lower-priced, forged bar codes to the merchandise.

While Adon-Cano was in jail, detectives obtained a search warrant, searched his vehicle and seized more than $33,000 worth of merchandise with forged bar codes attached. Detectives working with Home Depot Loss Prevention determined Adon-Cano had engaged in similar transactions between April 30 and May 2 along the Interstate 5 corridor at stores from Everett, WA, to Tigard.

Portsmouth, VA: Pawn store shuts down, managers Federally indicted for selling stolen goods
Two managers at what used to be Portsmouth Pawn have been federally indicted for selling stolen goods out of the shop. According to court documents, Joseph Poling and Raisa Ison worked together to buy stolen goods for less than retail value and then resell them for a profit. The stolen items ranged from power tools, pet supplies and computer routers to shaving razors and personal electronics, documents report.

In the nine page indictment, prosecutors said that Poling and Ison worked with people who stole items from retail stores like Walmart and Sam's Club and then sold the stolen items to the pawn shop for cash. In one instance outlined in the indictment, three people working in connection with them stole $7,000 worth of ink cartridges from a retail store in Chesapeake. As part of the conspiracy, Poling and Ison created eBay accounts where they posted advertisements for goods and offered them for sale or auction, according to court documents. Documents further state they would receive the money via electronic wire transfer, PayPal. Over the years, a federal investigation found they racked up thousands of dollars' worth of stolen property.

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

Sarasota, FL: Florida man who tried to pawn baby says it was a prank for Snapchat
A Florida father sought by police after a pawn shop owner notified authorities of a man trying to sell a baby now says he did it as a social media prank. Police began searching for the man after they were notified Tuesday by an employee of A&F Pawn Jewelry and Loan who was concerned for the child’s welfare.

Surveillance video shows the man walk into the store and place a child carrier on the glass counter. “This is what I got,” he says in the Snapchat video, according to WFLA. “I know no one under 18 in here but he’s barely used, seven and a half months old, what do you think he’s worth?” he exchange alarmed the employee enough that he called police, sparking a manhunt that involved several law enforcement divisions. Detectives also notified the Florida Department of Children and Family Services.

The man in the video, 43-year-old Brian Slocum, of Sarasota, saw himself on the news and called the Sarasota Police Dept. to give a statement. Slocum, who has not been charged with a crime, said he regrets the poor prank and is speaking out to warn others of the potential consequences. “There’s nothing in the world I would trade for my son, he’s my world,” Slocum said.

The Marc’s employee tried to detain the man by gabbing his arm, police said. The suspect got into the van and, with the employee still holding onto his arm, told the woman to start driving. The employee hung onto the side of the van and was dragged a short distance across the parking lot.

Flexibility and molding to the environment you're in is the first step towards integration and inclusion. In order to be absolutely effective, an executive must first become one with their surroundings and mold to what it is as opposed to expecting them to mold to you. Seeing and hearing those subtle differences is the key and changing to it becomes the objective. Once modified, you then have the freedom to influence change and make a difference.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
