Fraud & Identity Theft's Next Destination - Smart cars that allow drivers to
shop from behind the wheel Hackers can already take control of a car.
And as vehicles become rolling shopping malls, cybercriminals will have an
opportunity to snatch your identity, too. Eager for a cut of drivers' purchases
of fast food, gas and more, automakers have big plans to bring e-commerce to the
dashboard. Ford Motor Co. already has an app that lets drivers dictate an order
to Domino's Pizza using voice controls and a smartphone. General Motors Co. this
year began offering AtYourService, which alerts drivers to deals at Dunkin'
Donuts or lets them book a hotel room on Priceline.com using voice commands.
By 2020, as many as 40 percent of new vehicles sold worldwide will let drivers
shop from behind the wheel, predicts Thilo
Koslowski, vice president of the auto practice at Gartner.
Connected cars present a rich target, akin to retailers or banks, where hackers
can troll for credit card numbers, home addresses, e-mail information and all
the other personal details required for identity theft.
Two security experts hacked into a Jeep Cherokee's infotainment system in July
to take control of the engine and transmission as an 18-wheeler was bearing down
on it. OnStar also was hacked when a security researcher used a small device
hidden on a 2013 Chevrolet Volt to take control of GM's RemoteLink app, which
allowed him to unlock the car and start its engine.
Hackers bent on identity theft are expected to infiltrate cars through the
entertainment portal, as the Jeep hackers did, or market malicious apps that
appear harmless or even helpful, but actually steal personal information. "When
payment systems come online inside of cars, it will be an attack surface that
attackers will start looking at and poking at" ...
"You're going to see the entire spectrum of fraud inside these vehicles."

Former Tesco CEO to face questioning by prosecutors regarding UK grocery chain's
$503M accounting scandal Former Tesco Plc Chief Executive Officer
Philip Clarke is set to be interviewed by U.K. prosecutors as a probe into the
grocer's multimillion-pound accounting scandal heads to a conclusion. The U.K.
Serious Fraud Office has asked Clarke and ex-commercial director Kevin Grace to
come in for interviews under caution, according to people with knowledge of the
probe. Former U.K. finance director Carl Rogberg was interviewed earlier this
summer, according to one person, while ex-head of U.K. operations, Chris Bush,
also received an SFO request, said another person, who asked not to be
identified because the investigation is confidential. The SFO started
investigating Tesco in October after the grocer said it found it had overstated
profits, by an amount which has since spiraled to as much as 326 million pounds
($503 million). Nine senior managers were put on leave, of which at least six
Lumber Liquidators Investors Say Chief Merchandising Officer 'Directly
Responsible' For Illegal China Deals A proposed class of aggrieved
investors lambasted the former chief merchandising officer of Lumber Liquidators
Holdings Inc., telling a Virginia federal court Wednesday that the former
executive was directly responsible for acquiring illegally sourced wood from
China and should therefore not be dismissed from a securities fraud lawsuit
against the company. Lead plaintiffs countered William Schlegel's bid to dismiss
complaints against him in the suit accusing Lumber Liquidators of hiding sales
of illegally harvested wood and cheap, toxic floors from February 2012 to
February 2015, saying that Schlegel personally inspected products and negotiated
contracts with Chinese suppliers, performed quality assurance and even had
first-hand knowledge that Lumber Liquidators' largest supplier in China was
engaged in illegal practices.
NRF: NLRB Joint Employer Ruling 'Roadblock' to Job Creation
The National Retail Federation issued the following statement from Senior Vice
President for Government Relations David French on today's
ruling by the National Labor Relations Board that certain companies can be
considered joint employers: "The NLRB's decision disregards 30 years of clear
precedent requiring a joint employer to have direct and immediate control over
employees, and it unnecessarily blurs the distinctions between independent
parties in a wide range of normal business-to-business relationships such as
franchising or subcontracting."
Today Show: How Safe Are New Chip Cards?
In a segment on this morning's Today Show, a spokeswoman from MasterCard led
viewers to believe that new "chip" credit cards being issued to consumers are
the same cards currently issued in Europe and Canada that have reduced fraud by
almost 80 percent. What this spokeswoman omitted, is that the cards that have
cut fraud across the globe are Chip and PIN credit cards. In the United States,
banks are skipping the PIN and relying on signatures, which do not provide the
added layer of security for cardholders that exists in other countries.
MasterCard also insinuated that all customers will have new cards in their
wallet on October 1. But an independent survey released by the AP found that
only 1 in 10 consumers have been issued a new card.

Subway Franchisee: I told Subway about Jared Fogle's interest in kids, and they
did nothing A former Subway franchisee claims she warned Subway about
Jared Fogle's sexual interest in children seven years ago and that the sandwich
chain did nothing. Cindy Mills says that Fogle, Subway's pitchman for 15 years,
started calling her daily and making disturbing comments in early 2008, shortly
after they had met at a Subway function. "He would just tell me he really liked
them young," Mills told Business Insider. Mills was a Subway franchisee from
2006 to 2012 in Pensacola, Florida. Fogle was charged last week with possessing
and distributing child pornography and traveling across state lines to have sex
with minors. He plans to plead guilty to the crimes and pay $1.4 million in
restitution to 14 victims. Mills says she shared information with Subway in 2008
but the company ignored her complaints.
Presidential Candidate Scott Walker Becomes Informal Spokesperson for Kohl's
Scott Walker likes to wear inexpensive clothes. It's a fact the Republican
presidential candidate quite literally wears with pride, pointing out on one
occasion that he was wearing a sweater that was purchased for just $1 at Kohl's
department store. Another time, he took to Twitter to brag about the slashed
price on a tie -- also purchased at Kohl's -- that he wore for a nationally
televised interview. Walker brings up the topic of Kohl's with such frequency
that it's almost as if he's become a living, breathing advertisement for the
Wisconsin-based bargain retailer. And if you've listened to him give his
standard campaign stump speech, chances are you've heard his Kohl's story --
perhaps more than once.

FBI: $1.2B Lost to Business Email Scams, 'CEO Fraud'
The FBI today warned about a significant spike in victims and dollar losses
stemming from an increasingly common scam in which crooks spoof communications
from executives at the victim firm in a bid to initiate unauthorized
international wire transfers. According to the FBI, thieves stole nearly $750
million in such scams from more than 7,000 victim companies in the U.S. between
October 2013 and August 2015. In January 2015, the FBI released stats showing
that between Oct. 1, 2013 and Dec. 1, 2014, some 1,198 companies lost a total of
$179 million in so-called business e-mail compromise (BEC) scams, also known as
"CEO fraud." The latest figures show a marked 270 percent increase in identified
victims and exposed losses. Taking into account international victims, the
losses from BEC scams total more than $1.2 billion, the FBI said.
CEO fraud usually begins with the thieves either phishing an executive and
gaining access to that individual's inbox, or emailing employees from a
look-alike domain name that is one or two letters off from the target company's
true domain name.
For example, if the target company's domain was "example.com" the thieves might
register "examp1e.com" (substituting the letter "L" for the numeral 1) or "example.co,"
and send messages from that domain. Unlike traditional phishing scams, spoofed
emails used in CEO fraud schemes are
unlikely to set off spam traps, because
these are targeted phishing scams that are
not mass e-mailed. Also, the crooks behind
them take the time to understand the target organization's relationships,
activities, interests and travel and/or purchasing plans.
Opinion: 'Not so fast on data breach liability'
Would-be experts are portraying a federal appeals court ruling in the Neiman
Marcus data breach case as a tipping point toward victims of cyber fraud, one
that may lead to a wave of successful class-action lawsuits filed against retail
chains. This interpretation is premature. It is an overreach rooted in a lack of
appreciation for the overall procedural context in which the court reviewed the
case, without accounting for the most important part of any class action lawsuit
- class certification. For background, the 2013 data breach exposed the credit
card data of 350,000 Neiman Marcus customers. Without any doubt, this led to
fraudulent charges occurring in 9,200 of those customer accounts. In short
order, a class-action lawsuit followed in which customers sought $5 million in
damages. While a district court dismissed the case - in part because customers
had been reimbursed for the false charges in question-the U.S. appeals court
reversed that dismissal in late July. Alarmist reactions came swiftly. One
cyber-security firm, for instance, sent out an email newsletter with a story
titled "Breaking News: Surging Legal Risks of a Data Breach." The headline
almost begs for an exclamation point. But I say, "Not so fast."
Schnuck Grocery Chain Loses Bid To Toss Data Breach Suit
An Illinois federal judge on Thursday denied a bid by midwestern grocery chain
Schnuck Market Inc. to escape a lawsuit brought by more than 200 customers
affected by a 2012 data breach, saying the plaintiffs have clearly alleged
they've already suffered economic harm from the breach. Since the hack targeted
centralized records, fact finding doesn't need to take place at every store,
most of which are in Missouri, the judge said.
Why restaurants aren't deploying beacons
Although some restaurant chains, including McDonald's, are exploring beacon
technology, most are still trying to figure out how and when to use it. A panel
last week at Networld Media Group's CONNECT Mobile Innovation Summit in Chicago
discussed beacon technology's role with restaurateurs and retailers today. It's
a complicated issue, to say the least. The panelists pointed to several reasons
why retailers have yet to embrace beacons, ranging from consumers' hesitation to
be pinged while shopping to organizations lacking the necessary personnel or
foresight to implement and manage a successful program.

Canadian cargo theft more common than people think, expert says -
Columbia Sportswear hit hard The theft of truckloads of
merchandise is much more common than the general public thinks, according to a
trucking expert. "In this industry, we know it's not the opportunistic criminal
that's identifying a whole truckload of merchandise and says: 'Hey, this looks
like something fun to steal'," said Jennifer Fox, vice-president of trade and
security with the Ontario Trucking Association. "What we have is a very
organized criminal element in place." According to research of cargo thefts
by the Ontario Trucking Association, food products are the number one commodity
being stolen, as well as house hold products. The reason? They're easy to
off-load and get rid of quickly. There is also a high demand for food and
household items year-round, she said. Fox added that cargo theft is also often
not reported, making it difficult for her organization to pinpoint how
frequently they occur. "We have, for years, been trying to bring more attention
to the issue," she said. "Initially, I think there was hesitation from the
trucking industry to start talking about this issue and how often it's
happening. There's a real fear about the negative image that can be conjured up
by your customers and the public if you seem to be victimized by this." More
trucking companies are, however, coming forward with information about thefts,
Fox said. There's a level of frustration in the industry that it seems the
criminals are getting more sophisticated in how they operate. "They have things
such as GPS blockers now, so you put a GPS on your trailer and the criminal
element can use these GPS blockers and essentially block that signal," she said.

Best Buy sales soar in U.S., plunge 25.6% in Canada
Shares of U.S. electronics giant Best Buy Co. Inc. soared 12.57% August 25,
thanks to unexpectedly strong sales and profit in the U.S. as well as a strong
outlook. That made it the best performer in the S&P 500. The company's Canadian
subsidiary, Burnaby-based Best Buy Canada, however, was a drag on the company's
business. Best Buy does not specifically break out Canadian sales but it reports
on its international division, which is now almost exclusively Canadian. Sales
in that division fell 25.6% to US$650 million in the quarter, which ended August
1, compared with US$874 million in the same quarter a year ago. Canada is
essentially the company's entire international division given that Best Buy
completed the sale of its business in China in February.
As U.S. retailers eliminate on-call scheduling, Loblaw signs part-time workers
deal with union up north A month after ratifying a six-deal with the
union that represents 12,000 of its employees in Ontario-avoiding a strike in
the process-Canada's biggest food retailer has inked another deal with the
United Food and Commercial Workers that aims to make life easier for part-time
workers. Under the terms of the new deal, according to the Toronto Star, Loblaws
Great Foods and Superstores will introduce several pilot projects to make the
schedules of part-time workers more predictable and guarantee them better hours.
It provides part-timers with 10 days advance notice of scheduling, instead of
the previous three-a longstanding source of irritation for part-time workers
with families, studies and other jobs to juggle.

2015, as reported in last year's Trends in Human Resources survey, an annual
project from Morneau Shepell. The average salary increase figures include
expected salary freezes.

Nearly 100 fentanyl patches stolen from downtown Toronto pharmacy this week
The theft occurred between the closed store hours of 6 p.m. on Aug. 26 to 7:30
a.m. on Aug. 27 in the area of Church Street and Queen Street East. Police say
14 to 20 boxes of fentanyl were taken - each containing five patches. "It looks
very similar to a nicotine patch," said Detective Sergeant Mike Richmond during
a press conference on Friday. Earlier this month, investigators issued a warning
to the public of the potentially deadly combination of fentanyl infused
narcotics that are slowing making its way into the city's drug scene.
Audiotronic's merchandise stolen from Dawson Creek turn up in the Okanagan
According to Sgt. Ed Reinink with the Dawson Creek RCMP, a variety of goods
stolen from the store Audiotronics last Sunday turned up in the Northern
Okanagan region. 22 cell phones and a Nikon camera were found by RCMP in a
stolen vehicle. Officials have launched a formal investigation to find out just
how the electronics made it to the interior, and who is involved in breaking and
entering the store.
Robbery suspects break into Woodbridge convenience store by cutting hole in roof

the front door.
Barrie, ON: Police seeking suspects in ice cream truck theft
Police in Barrie, Ont., are looking for suspects who made off with an ice cream
truck Tuesday night. Investigators say the truck was recovered early Wednesday
morning about 90 kilometres away by provincial police in the Bracebridge, ON
area. Police described the vehicle as "very distinctive" as it was covered with
decals of ice cream cones, sundaes, Popsicles and slushies. OPP say significant
damage had been done to the truck before it was recovered. The fate of the ice
cream that was in the truck isn't known.

As ecommerce and financial institutions evolve, so does fraud
With the growth of the online and mobile commerce, retailers are trying to build
long-term relationships with their customers by storing customer account
information and creating mobile applications to make access easier. Ecommerce
transactions broken down consist of the following percentages and risks: 80% of
transactions were account logins, with 3% high risk, 19% of transactions were
payments, with 3% high risk and 1% of transactions were account creation, with
nearly 7% high risk. Attacks detected during real-time analysis and interdiction
of fraudulent online payments, logins and new account registrations show us that
fraudsters are constantly developing sophisticated strategies to compromise
U.S. Card Security Is Finally Catching Up with the World Many
Americans who travel abroad have already experienced the changes that chip
technology will bring when chip technology rolls out widely this year. This
change means card information won't be passed to the merchant for payment.
Instead, the embedded chip on the card communicates a single-use code to the
card reader. Behind the scenes, the reader passes the one-time code through the
wireless network to validate that the card is legitimate and to authorize the
transaction. The single-use code can only be used for that transaction, and does
not include the card number. So thieves can't reuse the information passed
during a chip transaction to commit fraud. That means American consumers finally
get the same payment card abilities, safety and security that consumers in
Europe, Canada, Asia, Latin America, and even North Korea enjoy. Everywhere chip
technology is used, counterfeit fraud from point of sale purchases has been
significantly reduced. In the United Kingdom, retailers saw losses fall 67%
since chip implementation in 2004. When Canada instituted chip cards in 2008,
annual fraud losses fell from $142 million to just $38.5 million in one year.

Pontiac, MI: Man sentenced for using addicts to steal over $600,000 in
merchandise from The Home Depot Detroit man used drug addicts and
homeless people to steal at least $600,000 in merchandise from Home Depot stores
in southeastern Michigan over the past 18 months, authorities said. Adelbert
Ackerman, also known as Aldelbert Lovett, was sentenced Wednesday in Oakland
Circuit Court to four years and six months to 40 years in prison for conducting
the criminal enterprise and 18 months each for two first-degree retail fraud
offenses. As part of his sentence, Ackerman is also banned from Home Depot.
Police first became aware of Ackerman, 46, when, during a November 2014 raid in
Detroit, they found stacks of Home Depot merchandise, still carrying price tags,
scattered around the address, along with Home Depot store value cards, wrapped
in receipts. They first believed the property - stacked in piles totaling $200 -
was being exchanged for drugs.
Tacoma, WA: Nordstrom clerk pleads not guilty to $30,000 theft; blames ORC ring
A Nordstrom sales clerk accused of stealing nearly $30,000 through false
merchandise returns has pleaded not guilty to first-degree theft. The
21-year-old woman was released from custody without bail. The saleswoman began
working at the Tacoma department store in June, and it wasn't long before loss
prevention officers began monitoring her. In a two-month span, she returned nine
items worth $29,333 to the same few credit cards, according to charging papers.
Prosecutors allege none of the returns had receipts and some items did not come
from Nordstrom. One designer blazer had a price tag of $3,300, and a Prada dress
was valued at more than $1,900, prosecutors said. The sales clerk allegedly told
police she was approached by a man who runs an Organized Retail Theft ring and
asked to participate. She said she was paid $400 to $500 per return.
CA Police break up large Shoplifting Ring Ripon police believe they
broke up a large shoplifting ring Tuesday night when they arrested five people
from the East Bay with thousands of dollars in stolen merchandise. Five people
entered a CVS store on West Main Street about 9:30 p.m., split up into smaller
groups and shoplifted items from the store, Lt. Steve Merchant of the Ripon
Police Department said. Employees recognized what was happening and called
police. Officers arrived within minutes and stopped the suspects' vehicle,
Merchant said, conducted a search and found more than 200 stolen items,
including alcohol, gift cards, clothing, perfume, toiletries, jewelry and makeup
worth more than $3,000.

Lulu Lemon on Thursday, then were stopped at Westfield UTC mall where one was
arrested at gunpoint and two escaped, police said. The two who fled took off in
a stolen car and led San Diego police on a pursuit south on Interstate 805. The
trio is believed part of an organized theft ring out of Los Angeles, Carlsbad
police Lt. Greg White said. He said the woman who was caught is from Los
Angeles, and that there has been a recent increase in LA-area criminals
targeting high-end shops in North County.

documents released Documents relating to an Olympia officer-involved
shooting that injured two suspects have been released. Olympia Officer Ryan
Donald shot and injured theft suspects Andre Thompson and Bryson Chaplin May 21.
According to the documents, employees at a Safeway grocery store reported an
attempted theft. Donald said he hadn't responded to the store but began looking
for suspects in the area when he encountered two men matching the provided
description. He claims he shot the men after they attacked him with a skateboard
and one tried to take his gun. Thompson told a detective that neither he nor
Chaplin had stopped at a store that evening and that they hadn't used their
skateboards as weapons. Documents say Thompson was shot once, and Chaplin
sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
Portsmouth, VA: Indictment to be sought in Portsmouth officer-involved fatal
shooting of shoplifter The Commonwealth's Attorney's Office has
announced they are seeking an indictment into the fatal officer-involved
shooting of William Chapman in Portsmouth. In April, 18-year-old Chapman was
suspected of having shoplifted from the Wal-Mart on Frederick Boulevard.
Security then alerted police of an alleged shoplifter leaving the store.
Chapman, who was walking across the store parking lot, was approached by a
Portsmouth officer, said Virginia State Police. Multiple witnesses told police
the man and the officer started to struggle. At some point during the
altercation, VSP said the officer shot Chapman. The officer immediately called
for medical rescue, but Chapman died at the scene.
OK: Police searching for man who robbed at Two Aldi stores Twice now
in the past month, a man has made off with a large amount of cash after robbing
two metro grocery stores. Police say there's a good chance he will strike again.
The man walked into an Aldi grocery store Wednesday night, appearing to be a
typical shopper. He even walked to the back of the store to pick up a carton of
eggs before making his move. "He waits until the customers leave so it appears
he's the only person in there. There are two more employees in the back," said
Sgt. Jeremy Lewis, Moore Police. Once at the cash register, he grabbed the
female clerk and demanded cash from the register. The surveillance video caught
the crook pulling out the bills, before leaving with the money and the eggs.
Police in Norman say this crime is nearly identical to an August 3 robbery at
another Aldi store.
Twp, NJ: $80,000 worth of jewelry stolen from Trent Jewelers A Mercer
County jewelry store is reeling after two thieves broke in, smashing display
cases, and making off with thousands of dollars worth of diamonds. It was 3:30
Wednesday morning when two thieves broke a window and entered Trent Jewelers
near Five Points in Hamilton Township. The first suspect took a swing with a
tire iron to smash a display case, while his partner in crime made a beeline to
two more cases at the other end of the store. They filled their bags with
$80,000 worth of diamond rings and other estate jewelry and were in and out of
the store in 30 seconds.

Tip of the Day

Stagnation is the key to failing. Every CEO at failing retailers
I've ever spoken to has told me that the number 1 reason for the company's
problems was because the employee population had become stagnate and complacent
in their jobs and performance. So many complain when new CEO's bring in their
new teams and reorganize their companies, but in essence that's the key to
reinventing the organization and rebirthing the company. All teams need to be
reinvented from time to time merely to give them new energy, new focus, new
opportunities. The human condition always forces us to take the easiest path
when in reality that path will ultimately lead us to stagnation. Sometimes it's
best to take a new path, one that appears to be the hardest, and maybe the most
difficult. Because it's always the darkest path where we find the most rewards.
Reinvent-Rebirth-Rethink. It begins every Monday!
