Brands combat return fraud and counterfeit
products with nanotechnology
With all the opportunities facing retail these days, it is easy to understand
why some executives may not fully realize how much money their operations may be
losing due to return fraud, one of the least dramatic and less obvious ways that
fraud is committed in retail.
The “real costs of retail return fraud and warranty abuse are vastly
under-reported,” says Paul Rosengard, president of
Anatwine, the company behind
a software platform that facilitates vendor-direct shipments and real-time
“Retailers selling high-end goods want to protect their brands and their
reputations for trustworthiness, and ensure a positive customer experience, so
they frequently accept returns without questions,” says Rosengard, a former
president of Perry Ellis.
The Appriss 2017 Consumer Returns to the Retail Industry survey, which
integrated the findings of NRF’s 2017 Organized Retail Crime survey into a
report analyzing retail returns, return fraud and warranty abuse, found that
fraud reaches an average 7 percent when retail return abuse is measured along
with refund fraud; losses due to fraud jump to an estimated $23 billion.
The cost of counterfeit returns, even at the highest range, “transcends the
dollar losses because counterfeiting threatens the brand’s most important asset
— its reputation for quality with consumers,” Rosengard says. stores.org
How to Cut the Fat Without Cutting Staff
To get organizational buy-in for a cost-reduction effort, target non-staff cuts
— and make sure workers know that's what you're doing.
When CFOs are charged with leading cost-cutting initiatives, by necessity they
find themselves navigating between the certainty of change and the human
tendency defer short-term pain at the risk of much more drastic consequences in
There is nothing that can be done to completely avoid that fate, as it is common
to all change agents with a mandate to reduce costs. However, one way to at
least minimize internal resistance to the program is to explicitly target
When taking that route, make sure colleagues, middle management, and staff
understand that the goal of the cost-cutting initiative is cutting the fat
generally versus cutting jobs specifically. Tell that that the greater the
success at the former, the greater the certainty that the latter will be pared.
Then the stage will be set for a successful cost-cutting initiative.
Plan of Attack
Finance can, of course, be a complex endeavor. But when it comes to cutting
costs without eliminating jobs that company growth may require, failure to
adhere to some straightforward principles is what trips up many companies
A solid plan for a
cost-cutting initiative should include the following elements:
Addressing Sexual Harassment Demands More Than a
Having a sexual harassment policy at your organization is crucial, but that’s
not enough to address systemic issues of abuse and inequality in the workplace.
That’s the message Tina Tchen delivered Monday at the
ASAE Annual Meeting &
Exposition in her Game Changer session, “Time’s Up: Eradicating Abuse of
Power, Leadership Imbalances, and Inequality.”
Tchen, who served in the White House as assistant to President Barack Obama and
as First Lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, is now a partner at the law firm
Buckley Sandler LLP, where she launched a practice addressing workplace culture
issues just weeks before public revelations about Harvey Weinstein helped spark
the #MeToo movement. As a result, Tchen now leads the Time’s Up Legal Defense
Fund, which provides legal assistance to those registering workplace complaints.
Since the fund’s launch in January, it has received more than 3,250 requests
for assistance from a wide range of workplaces and experiences. Two-thirds of
the requests come from low-income workers across 60 industries. “This is
happening everywhere,” she said. Read

$3.5M Injury Verdict Against Sam's Club Axed By Md. Court
A Maryland appeals court has overturned a $3.49 million award to a man
injured inside a Sam’s Club when a car crashed through the wall, saying
Friday that a main defense witness at trial was cross-examined with questions
predicated on facts that were never proven.
The Court of Special Appeals of Maryland overturned the judgment of $3.49
million entered after trial for plaintiff Dimas Chavez and against Sam’s Club
corporate owner Walmart Inc., and ordered a new trial.
Chavez was in the cafe of a Gaithersburg, Maryland, Sam’s Club on July 23, 2013,
when a car crashed through the wall. The cafe had been added to the building as
a renovation that extended the building’s wall 20 feet closer to the parking
lot, where a one-way driving aisle was directed straight toward the wall and the
steel doors in it, and there were no safety barriers between the driving aisle
and the wall, according to the opinion.
Where is video monitoring now?
Video monitoring, including proactive video monitoring, guard tours, video
verification and even MIY among consumers, is on the rise, according to six
wholesale monitoring professionals.
“The subscriber is demanding more video monitoring options." To date, most of it
has been video verification associated with either intrusion alarms and guard
With the technology available now with really intelligent video analytic
software enabled to make decisions about scenes and situations at the
subscribers’ premises, we see that this type of ‘before the event’ monitoring
makes sense to the subscriber, preventing crimes from happening rather than
trying to verify that an incident has happened.”
Several factors, ranging from user perception to advancements in the technology,
have helped the increased use of video monitoring. “Also, video analytics have
come a long way in the last couple of years. In the past you were limited by
what you could do by the technology. …Now that video analytics have become less
expensive and more powerful, savvy dealers can use them to address problems that
would have been otherwise difficult, expensive or impossible.”
The video companies are doing a much better job in educating the installers [on]
how to put the cameras in to ensure under almost all conditions you’re going to
get a decent picture coming back to the central,” he said. “As the
technology gets better and with analytics we will see an increase in video
8 Fast-Food Chains Will End ‘No-Poach’ Policies
Eight more restaurant chains have agreed to end a policy that blocks workers
from switching jobs within the individual brands, becoming the latest companies
to curtail a once-prevalent hiring practice that critics say depressed wages for
some of America’s lowest-paid employees.
As part of agreements with the Washington State attorney general’s office on
Monday, Applebee’s, Church’s Chicken, Five Guys, IHOP, Jamba Juice, Little
Caesars, Panera Bread and Sonic all agreed to remove a so-called no-poach clause
from their contracts with franchisees and the restaurants will no longer enforce
existing no-poach agreements.
No-poach restrictions are buried in thick contracts between corporate
headquarters and franchisees, who collectively operate most of the major
fast-food restaurants in the United States.
Separately, attorneys general in 10 states have also begun
their own investigation into no-poach agreements within the restaurant
New Report: “Rise of Gen Z: New Challenge for
Knowing Your Audience & Future Employees is Critical
Gen Z Is Set to Outnumber Millennials Within a Year
Almost one-third of world’s 7.7 billion people born since ’01 - Newest
generation is less ‘self-centered’ than millennials
People born in 2001 will turn 18 next year, meaning many will enter university,
be eligible to vote and, depending on their citizenship, smoke or drink alcohol
without breaking the law. Gen Zers have never known a non-digital world
and have grown up amid events such as the "war on terror" and Global Recession.
"The key factor that differentiated these two groups, other than their age, was
an element of self-awareness versus self-centeredness," according to “Rise of
Gen Z: New Challenge for Retailers,” a
report by Marcie Merriman, an executive director at Ernst & Young LLP.
Millennials were "more focused on what was in it for them. They also looked to
others, such as the companies they did business with, for solutions, whereas the
younger people naturally sought to create their own solutions."
For this Bloomberg comparison, millennials were defined as people born in 1980
through 2000, with Gen Z classified as anyone born starting in 2001 -- at
least until the next meaningful cohort emerges. The
U.S. Census Bureau also bookends the generations at the end of 2000.
The demographic handover is good news for delivery services, gadget makers and
the so-called gig economy. Meanwhile, it presents new challenges to educators,
event planners, luxury brands and even golfers -- a game where the average age
of U.S. participants now exceeds 50.
"Gen Z are bombarded with messages and are a generation that can quickly
detect whether or not something is relevant to them."
Fewer Americans Uproot Themselves for a New Job
Better job prospects near home, growing reluctance to disrupt children’s
routines prompt more people to stay put.
The share of job seekers relocating for new employment has fallen
dramatically since the late 1980s, when more than a third moved to take new
opportunities elsewhere, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray &
About 3.5 million people relocated for a new job last year, according to U.S.
census data, a 10% drop from 3.8 million in 2015. The numbers have fluctuated
between 2.8 million and 4.5 million since the government started tracking annual
job-related relocations in 1999.

R-CISC’s 2018 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP)
Reveals Retail Industry CISOs Will Continue to Invest in Services
Increasing Challenges for In-House Talent a Concern
Organizations of different sizes show differing appetites for subscribing to and
leveraging managed security service provider (MSSP) services. This is one of the
key findings of the MSSP Benchmark Survey, conducted by the Retail Cyber
Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC). More than 40 organizations
participated in the survey and reported that due to increasing cost concerns
and challenges faced with in-house talent, organizations are looking to
outsource security functions to an MSSP instead of building the capability in
house for monitoring events from IT infrastructure logs, firewalls and Intrusion
Detection Systems (IDS)/Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). Participating
companies spanned retail channels, including retail, restaurants, hotels, gaming
properties, consumer financial services and consumer packaged goods.
“While retail and hospitality businesses may have similar
transaction volumes as some of their banking counterparts, they
typically have smaller information security teams and spend. We
observe that CISOs from our retail clients are finding ways to do
more with less, helping their organizations secure tomorrow's growth
in a world of shifting consumer expectations,” said Upen Sachdev,
principal at Deloitte & Touche LLP.
Many participating organizations indicate that they are likely to increase
spend or retain 2018 budgetary spend for MSSPs in the coming year.
Lauren Dana Rosenblatt, deputy chief information security officer (CISO)
for the Estée Lauder Companies, said, “For CISOs and their teams,
benchmarking metrics and information sharing with retail industry
peers provides visibility and useful context to build confidence
from a strategic perspective and situational awareness at a tactical
level. Whether our focus is on strategic planning or assessing our
cyber threat programs, sharing information is a critical step
that can help influence how we evolve our abilities to better
protect our consumers, employees and brands.”

Coupon Glittering: Best Practices for Mitigating Coupon Fraud
Glittering, or Coupon Glitching, describes when a criminal exploits business

re-selling products purchased at heavy discounts, or reselling the coupons
themselves. In fact, this type of abuse is so rampant that a quick search of
social media sites reveals many groups dedicated to sharing coupon glittering
Common exploits associated with coupon fraud include:

From Russia With Malware
Kaspersky Appeal Hurtles Toward Courtroom Arguments
The government’s legal battle with a Russian software company is speeding toward
its climax after the anti-virus firm Kaspersky Lab filed its final legal papers
in the appeals case Monday.
There are no other filings
scheduled in the case before oral arguments Sept. 14, which could bring a
close to the nearly year-long conflict that has pitted the government’s
cybersecurity and national security concerns against Kaspersky’s arguments about
fairness in government contracting. The case was sparked by two separate 2017
actions—one by the Homeland Security Department and the other by Congress—that
collectively banned Kaspersky anti-virus software from all federal government
and contractor systems.
Top Security Mistakes Putting Your Company at Risk
Cybersecurity is more painful to manage as technology architectures become more
complex. Simplify your approach by avoiding these major security mistakes.
The problem has become so complex that no organization can afford all the tools,
all the people, and all of the other resources it would need to protect itself
"You need to take a risk-based approach to security," said Garrett Bekker,
principal analyst, Information Security at
451 Research. "You have
to figure out what is an acceptable level of risk, which is easier said than
Different organizations and security experts prioritize risks differently, but
the goal is to narrow the problem down into something that's manageable and
effective while expanding awareness and responsibility.
Start by understanding the ways companies impede their security efforts so you
can eliminate these unproductive practices in your own organization.
1. They deny they're a target
"If you believe you're not at risk, then you're not taking [cybersecurity]
seriously enough," said Alan Brill, a senior managing director in the Cyber Risk
practice at corporate investigations and risk consulting firm at
2. They're unaware of their assets
Organizations suffer from many blind spots that enable exploitation. Because
they're unaware of all of their IT and data assets, there's no way to assess all
3. Cybersecurity is viewed as a technology problem
Cyberattacks are software attacks. On the other hand, why break into an
organization when one can walk through the front door with someone else's
"It's not just a technology problem, it's an operational problem, it's a
cultural problem," said 451 Research's Bekker. "One of the biggest threats to
enterprises is their users being tricked into giving up their passwords over the
phone or through phishing email. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how
big your firewall is. There's a social/cultural/behavioral element to it.

New Report Shows Identity Verification a Priority
new report from Whitepages Pro, a global leader in digital identity
verification, shows that an overwhelming majority of North American companies in
ecommerce and financial services surveyed consider identity verification to be a
top business priority but many still don’t believe they do it well or have all
the data and tools they need to be successful.
“Simultaneously fighting fraud while creating a positive, frictionless
experience for customers is a high-wire act for most online businesses,” said
Ajay Andrews, Director, Product Management, Whitepages Pro. “Identity
verification is critical to achieving both priorities, which is why there is so
much interest in doing it well. Even though organizations know that identity
verification is crucial, they sometimes struggle to overcome obstacles that
prevent them from realizing its full benefits. And, as this survey shows, those
benefits - in terms of reduced fraud, efficiency, increased transaction volume
and improved customer satisfaction - directly impact the bottom line.”
Among the report’s key findings:
● Driven by the belief that fraud attempts are increasing in frequency and
sophistication, identity verification is a priority for most organizations (93
● Organizations want access to more data points (just 13 percent say they have
all the data they need) and see data linkages (the relationships between data
elements) as a way to improve their identity verification processes
● Organizations want more and improved identity verification automation
● Organizations may not be balancing the barriers to adoption of better identity
verification against the true cost of waiting
● Achieving the highest stage of identity verification maturity produces the
Online Impulse Buys Get Lost in Translation
Digital grocery shoppers make far fewer unplanned purchases
According to an August 2018 Field Agent survey, 65% of US online grocery
buyers said they made fewer impulse purchases online compared with in-store,

Similarly, in a December 2017 Avionos survey of US internet users, 70% cited
in-store as the channel through which they would most likely make an impulse

The reasons given for not making impulse purchases online were revealing. In

Update: Detroit, MI: 2 charged in Organized
Retail Crime probe in Canton Township, Dearborn, $125,000 in merchandise
The first charges stemming from a raid earlier this month in Detroit and
Dearborn have been announced. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy announced
charges in connection with an organized retail crime scheme that police say
stretched from Canton Township to Dearborn and Detroit. Nafez Mohammad, 59, is
being charged with: ( 1) Count Continuing Criminal Enterprise, a 20-year felony
(10) Counts of Receiving & Concealing Stolen Property $1,000 - $20,000, a 5-year
felony (17) Counts of Organized Retail Crime, a 5-year felony ( 2) Counts of
Receiving & Concealing Stolen Property $200 - $1,000, a 1-year misdemeanor
Victoria Henderson, 33, is being charged with: ( 1) Count of Continuing Criminal
Enterprise, a 20-year felony (15) Counts of Receiving & Concealing Stolen
Property $1,000 - $20,000, a 5-year felony
(17) Counts of Organized Retail Crime, a 5-year felony ( 2) Counts of Receiving
& Concealing Stolen Property $200 - $1,000, a 1-year misdemeanor
According to police, between March 16, 2018 and July 27, 2018, it is alleged
that Henderson, and additional suspects, would steal from various retail stores
in Canton such as CVS, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and Target. The defendant(s) would
turn the stolen merchandise over to Mohammad.
It is alleged that Mohammad would take the items to a storage unit in Dearborn
and remove the plastic security devices and stickers so they could be sold to
purchasers on the internet. “Over the past year, the Canton Police Department
has been diligent with our investigations into organized retail criminal
enterprises,” said Deputy Director Chad Baugh. “Our intention is to disrupt the
trade of stolen merchandise in our region, therefore diminishing the number of
venues for would-be thieves to sell their stolen goods. In the long run,
legitimate retailers will see a reduction in thefts, therefore averting
consumers from paying inflated retail prices to make up for the losses,” Baugh
adds. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy said, “We are committed to
prosecuting those who engage in organized retail crime.”

formula which the Shoppers keeps locked up in a secure cabinet," said Officer
Rick Goodale with the Montgomery County Police Department. "The clerk told the
suspect they can't just hand over the formula. The suspect became irate and at
that point went around the counter and began to assault the clerk and demand the
baby formula again." Surveillance systems inside the store caught the whole
thing on camera. The women are seen pushing a stroller through the store and
then abandoning it during their assault on the clerk.

Missouri City, TX: Update: Suspect posted
Facebook video before deadly Food Distribution Center shooting
woman died at the hospital Monday after she killed one person and injured
another during a shooting at a Missouri City warehouse, police said. The
shooting was reported just after 2 a.m. at the Ben E. Keith Foods distribution
center. Missouri City police said that a woman, identified as Kristine Peralez,
who worked at the warehouse, opened fire inside and shot two of her fellow
employees. One of those people, who police identified as Francisco Reyes, the
overnight manager at the warehouse, died at the scene. The other, who police
identified as Fedencio Janas, was taken to a hospital to be treated for a
gunshot wound to his leg. Police said that when officers arrived at the scene,
the shooter was in the parking lot. There was an exchange of gunfire, but it is
unclear if she died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound or by gunfire from
officers, police said.
Peralez posted a video to Facebook Live right before the shooting where she
appeared to apologize. "This is your fault. I'm sorry. For everything. I didn't
want it to end like this," Peralez said in the video. She also said she had been
pushed too hard for too long. Peralez's father-in-law, Tido Peralez, confirmed
the person in the video was Peralez. She also said in the video, "Tell my
grandmother I love her. And I'm not crazy."

driver – Wilson – went to the convenience store to rob it. In the process,
Fields allegedly shot Baker for no apparent reason. They were both arrested
months later. Baker's wife, Faye, said he worked for Krispy Kreme for nearly 32
years and loved his job.
Robberies, Incidents & Thefts
Akron, OH: Copley, Cuyahoga Falls Smash & Grab
Jewelry heists appear connected
the bold, daylight bandits took were expensive diamonds. After a weekend robbery
it was easy to see things had changed at the Jared Jewelry Cuyahoga Falls
location. A security guard watched the parking lot from the front door, and a
glass repair worker was inside taking measurements. The broken jewelry display
cases needed replacement glass. "They had hammers with them," Cuyahoga Falls
Detective Lt. Gary Merton said. "They broke out a display case and left with
several diamonds from the case."
The investigation starts by finding the answer to a key question. Is this an
isolated incident or is it connected to other equally bold robberies?
Specifically, detectives are looking at the July 16th robbery at the Jared store
in Copley - four men breaking in, well rehearsed, grabbing and going. "They have
had a similar incident," Merton said. "We're in the early stages so we haven't
really connected it to theirs (Copley) yet but there is a good chance that it
could be related." Luckily in both incidents no one was hurt. In Copley the
bandits were in and out in 16 seconds, the Cuyahoga Falls heist was quick as

Tip of the Day
by Vector Security Networks
Social media can be a fantastic platform for every company and executive, but it
can also be a nightmare. Mixing personal with professional oftentimes sends the
wrong messages and can absolutely destroy the image a professional needs to
maintain in the public arena. Maintaining boundaries and separating the two can
oftentimes be difficult to accomplish as corporate America searches for every
piece of information they can find on executives and companies. And regardless
of what anyone says, your professional image should always take precedence over
your personal image in the social media world.
