Booming Mobile industry giving birth to criminal
infrastructure much faster than it was for PC fraud
Mobile devices have become enticing targets for
criminals around the world, so much so that an underground
industry has begun to grow to support malicious activity
aimed at those devices, according to a report released on
Wednesday by the Anti-Phishing Working Group. That
infrastructure is being created much faster than it was for
PC fraud. "It's growing at least five times faster," Jevans
said. "What took 10 years for PCs is going to take 18 months
to two years for mobile." Some of the mobile crime
infrastructure is being built on the existing components of
the PC crime network. (Source

SFPD bust grocery store shoplifting ring hitting CVS,
Target, Safeway, Walgreens
San Francisco police busted a big shoplifting
ring this week, but not one that deals in electronics or
clothes. This network steals and resells shampoo,
conditioner, razor blades, batteries and the like. Police
confiscated $100,000 worth of disposable razors and $40,000
worth of batteries. These thieves were after everyday items
they could sell for a quick profit. Police say the
ringleader would put out a daily shopping list to a network
of thieves from San Francisco to Walnut Creek and Alamo.
They'd shoplift the goods item by item. The goods were
stolen from CVS, Target, Safeway and Walgreens stores.
Police say Thai would pay cash, then re-sell them to a
Mission District flea market and stores. Police called in
executives for the victimized stores. They scanned the goods
and figured out the whole cache is worth $300,000 - $400,000

Theft ring hitting Hastings Entertainment with check fraud in Wichita Falls A woman arrested recently, Juanita Marie Springmeyer, 28, also known as Juanita Hardy, was charged with forgery after allegedly passing a check written for more than $1,200 to Hastings Entertainment Store on May 6. Springmeyer is believed to be operating with a group of people who are watching people get out of their cars at gyms, then going inside the gym and stealing items from their locker and car, according to Spragins. She also was arrested in January with nine others in what the Wichita County Sheriff’s Office and WFPD believed to be a burglary and drug ring. Spragins said he believes the thefts started at the end of April and the criminals are taking anything of value, specifically checkbooks, identification cards and credit and debit cards. They are maxing them out as fast as they can, Spragins said. Anyone who thinks they may have been a victim of this theft ring is urged to contact the Wichita Falls Police Department and make a report as soon as possible at 940-761-7792.

into mom-driven getaway car in Madison, WI.

3 Tips For Surviving As A First-Time Manager You've landed your first management job! Congratulations! You are moving up now, and on a path to success! However, some of your now employees are a bit cautious with you in the big chair. What can you do to make sure you survive? (How to handle the pressure)

Recent data shows that when we make a choice based on our instincts, we are right up to 90% of the time! (Go with your gut)
The 7 Best and Worst Criticisms From A Boss (And Why They Matter So Much) We all have heard the phrase, "It's now what you say, it's how you say it."

Tip of the Day

Preparing for an interview should be
exhaustive. However, the day of the interview you should
clear your head and not do any prep at all or look at any
notes other than the well thought out prepared questions
you've come up with. A clear mind performs better than one
that's cluttered and trying to remember everything. And all
the prep you've done should be well stored in your mind.
Have faith in it and try to relax the day of the interview
and work out if you can before it. The mind body connection
is a powerful thing and your brain cannot operate at 100% if
your body isn't there with it.
Reach your target audience in 2013 every day!
