California Governor Signs Bill to Define Organized Retail Crime
Yesterday, California Governor, Jerry Brown signed
AB 1065 into
law. For the first time in California, the new law creates and recognizes the
crime of organized retail theft and creates specific penalties for those who
commit such crimes. Attached is a
of the final bill and also attached is a
legislative analysis that highlights what this bill will do.
Highlights of the bill include:
● Change the threshold for highest penalty from 3 or more convictions within 12
months to 2 or more convictions within 12 months
● Bolster misdemeanor arrest and bench warrant sections
● Mandate that courts consider issuing a stay away order for violators
● New CHP/State Taskforce
● New misdemeanor supervision program
● New deferred entry of judgement diversion program
● 2021 sunset
Here is an
LA Times article from earlier this year that reported about this bill as it
was being considered.
Governor Brown Helps Keep CA Retail Workers Safe
by Cracking Down on Organized Theft
The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Western States Council today
applauded Governor Jerry Brown for signing AB 1065 (Jones-Sawyer) to make
organized retail theft a crime and strengthening local law enforcement’s ability
to arrest and prosecute perpetrators. The following statement may be attributed
to James Araby, Executive Director, United Food and Commercial Workers Western
“A National Retail Federation survey found that 95% of merchants were the victim
of coordinated theft, resulting in $30 billion in estimated losses per year.
These sophisticated criminal enterprises put retail workers represented by UFCW
in dangerous situations on a daily basis. AB 1065 will improve safety in
California’s retail stores.
“In addition to strengthening local law enforcement’s ability to hold criminals
accountable, AB 1065 also creates risk-based rehabilitation programs to minimize
recidivism and incarceration. UFCW applauds Governor Brown for embracing AB
1065’s holistic approach to the pervasive problem of organized retail theft and
approve this common-sense criminal justice reform.”

Of course grow house and
budtending jobs are on the rise. But as the legal marijuana industry
continues to professionalize, jobs in finance, compliance, and operations are
also opening up, with a staggering 690% increase in overall marijuana
industry job listings between January 1, 2017 and August 1, 2018. Many of
those jobs listed were offered under titles such as director of cultivation or
director of extraction. And, average salaries in the industry grew 16.8% between
2017 and 2018. That’s a lot of green.
It’s worth pointing out that many director-level jobs require complex training
and knowledge that is fairly common in other industries. Consider compliance
managers, tasked with maintaining an understanding of complex state and federal
laws. And finance directors in the cannabis industry have a problem unique
to few other legal industries: most marijuana growers and sellers are still
not allowed to bank with most major financial institutions, which fear
running afoul of guidelines about aiding what is still considered criminal
activity on the federal level.

Former AP Exec - Lowe’s new CEO - plans to ‘replicate Home Depot playbook’

Marvin Ellison, the new chief executive at Lowe’s, says his plan to fix the
floundering home-improvement chain includes a few tricks he learned from his
days as an executive at Home Depot, according to analysts to whom he’s spoken.
“He’s going to replicate the Home Depot playbook where he can,” Gordon Haskett
analyst Chuck Grom told The Post. “Ellison thinks there’s a lot of market share
up for grabs.”
A 12-year veteran of Home Depot who got passed over for the top job there in
2014, Ellison has already tapped two former Home Depot executives to head up
stores and merchandising since he arrived three months ago.
labor costs — a relentless tactic at Home Depot that has earned its stores a
reputation for forcing customers to walk across multiple aisles in search of
help — also could be a key part of Ellison’s playbook.
In recent conversations with Wall Street analysts and investors, Ellison
signaled that he will cut hours for store workers while expanding the use of
in-store technology, including self-checkout lanes.

Pembroke Pines, FL: Woman Claims Racial Profiling After Being Falsely Accused Of
Stealing From Pines H&M Store
A woman who says she was falsely accused of shoplifting at the H&M store at
Pembroke Lakes Mall is still in tears over an incident she calls racial
“It was a black thing. Period. I wasn’t the only person in there. Why me?” asked
Daniela Taylor, who says she was shopping at the store on Tuesday. Daniela says
she went to H&M to return some earrings and decided to buy another pair. When
she walked out, she said two loss prevention officers approached her, accused of
her stealing the earrings and embarrassed her in front of people.
“He’s like, ‘That’s it. You’re going to jail.’ I’m like, ‘but for what?’” asked
Daniela. Daniela says she was very upset by a comment made by one of the loss
prevention officers — a black male.
“I’m cursing because obviously I have already told him I didn’t do anything. I
said, ‘you should understand where I’m coming from. If you were on the other end
of the table, you should understand how they do us these days.’ He said,
‘Don’t pull the race card on me,’” said Taylor.
Daniela says after reviewing security footage, the loss prevention officer
realized Daniela had not stolen anything.
H&M released the following statement:
“We are aware of the incident that took place in our Pembroke Lakes Mall
location. Unfortunately this was a misunderstanding and we are sorry. We have
since let go of the third party security company that was involved and we
are reviewing our internal procedures to make sure this type of incident does
not happen again and that our routines are properly followed. We will be getting
in touch with the customer to follow up on the steps we have taken.”
President Of Park Avenue Art Gallery Sentenced To 18 Months In Prison For
Defrauding Art Dealers And Collectors Of Millions Of Dollars Of Artwork
A Manhattan art dealer who admitted to playing fast and loose with works by
Pablo Picasso and Edgar Degas to rip off collectors and hide his financial
failure was sentenced to 18 months behind bars.
Ezra Chowaiki, who was the face of Chowaiki & Co. Fine Art Ltd. on Park Avenue
before its bankruptcy last year, was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge
Jed Rakoff in Manhattan. The disgraced dealer pleaded guilty in May and agreed
to forfeit $16 million and 25 works of art. He was also ordered to pay $12.9
million in restitution Wednesday.
Between 2015 and 2017, through the Gallery, Chowaiki engaged in a scheme to
deceive other dealers and collectors of fine artwork into sending him money or
valuable artwork under the false pretenses that he would engage in legitimate
transactions such as the purchase, sale, or consignment of artworks. In truth,
however, Chowaiki did not, and often could not, conduct the transactions as
promised, and instead kept funds and artwork for himself and the Gallery, or
sold or consigned them to others both in and outside the United States, without
authorization. Through these fraudulent transactions, Chowaiki fraudulently
transferred millions of dollars’ worth of artwork.

'Rise Up Retail' group aims to protect workers' rights

A new campaign, dubbed
Rise Up Retail, has launched to fight for decent pay, predictable schedules,

retail workers reaching out to other retail workers to organize and mobilize
them, much of it done through social media.
OUR Walmart’s decision to expand came out of its original theory of how to
change the retail sector: by changing things within Walmart, industry
standards were likely to shift, thanks to how large the company is. (Walmart
is the single biggest private sector employer in the country.) It also notched
some important victories: after workers started going on strike, it increased
starting pay to $10 an hour and expanded paid family leave. “Every win we’ve

Justice Department Hosts Cybersecurity Industry
Roundtable With Private Sector
Revised Guidance Released:
Best Practices for Victim Response & Reporting of
In February of this year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions established a
Cyber-Digital Task Force, which published its first
report in July. The report provides a comprehensive assessment of the
cyber-enabled threats confronting the nation, and catalogs ways in which the
Justice Department combats those threats, including by partnering with the
Justice Department’s Criminal Division hosted a cybersecurity roundtable
discussion yesterday on the challenges in handling data breach investigations.
Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Criminal Division
delivered opening remarks and served as moderator for the event. Deputy Attorney
General Rod J. Rosenstein, Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers of the
Department’s National Security Division and officials from the FBI, U.S. Secret
Service, the White House’s National Security Council and U.S. Department of
Homeland Security also delivered remarks at the event. The audience included
many of the nation’s leading private-sector practitioners in the field of data
breach response and representatives from premier cybersecurity and incident
response firms in the country.
The Department continues to exchange ideas with and look to the private
sector’s expertise and insight about how to improve cooperation between law
enforcement agencies and data breach victims.
“Public-private partnerships addressing cybercrime play a critical role
in our efforts to hold criminals accountable for data breaches,” said Deputy
Attorney General Rosenstein. “We depend on the private sector to help us
maintain the rule of law in cyberspace at every stage of our work. That includes
working together to obtain critical evidence for investigations and trials, and
collaborating on developing the legal authorities needed to protect our 21st
century economy. Today’s discussion aims to share best practices, common
challenges, and emerging threats, and identify how the Department of Justice
and our law enforcement partners can help private industry to protect Americans
from harm while safeguarding privacy. Through roundtables like this and the
continuing collaboration they fuel, we will meet emerging threats, protect
America’s technological innovations, and preserve public safety and security.”
As part of Thursday’s event, the Cybersecurity Unit released a new document
providing even more comprehensive guidance that reflects input the Unit
received during its outreach efforts. The
revised guidance addresses new issues like working with incident response
firms, cloud computing, ransomware, and information sharing. It is an example of
the type of assistance that the Cybersecurity Unit was designed to provide—to
help elevate cybersecurity efforts and build better channels of communication
between law enforcement and industry.
Cybercriminals Spend Ten Times More Than Companies on Security Battle
$1 Trillion vs. $96 Billion
stunning new report by Carbon Black, “Hacking, Escalating Attacks and The
Role of Threat Hunting” the company revealed that 92 percent of UK companies
surveyed have been breached in the last 12 months and almost half (44 percent)
have been breached between three and five times.
Perhaps the most dramatic data point shared by Carbon Black is that
cybercriminals are currently spending approximately $1 trillion on developing
cyberattack weapons, annually (according to the World Economic Forum),
while the “defenders” (enterprises, governments, organizations) are spending
about $96 billion (according to Gartner).
That’s a 10:1 ratio.
“The stats clearly show that defenders are not keeping up with attackers’
spending,” said Tom Kellermann, Chief Cybersecurity Officer, Carbon Black. “The
fact that 92 percent of UK companies have experienced a breach in the last year
and nearly half have been breached multiple times is sobering. It’s critical to
educate UK businesses on the threats they face and how these threats can be

accounts. Facebook fixed the vulnerability and notified law enforcement
More than 90 million of Facebook’s users were forced to log out of their

it fully assessed the scope of the attack. The company is in the beginning

However, SHEIN claims that they haven't seen evidence that credit card

Explosion in fake data-stealing shopping sites
Cyber attackers are ramping
up efforts to steal personal data by setting up look-alike domains that pose a
phishing risk to online shoppers, researchers warn
There are more than 6,400 digital certificates for look-alike domains, which is
168% greater than the number of certificates for valid UK retail domains,
research by security firm Venafi has revealed.
This puts online shoppers at risk of unwittingly handing over their username,
password and even credit card details to threat actors, the researchers warn.
The research analysed suspicious domains targeting the top 20 retailers in the
UK, US, France, Germany and Australia. The total number of certificates for
look-alike domains across all five regions is more than 200% greater than the
number of authentic retail domains, with one of the top 20 US retailers found
to have more than 12,000 look-alike domains targeting its customers.
As the rate of online shopping increases, the researchers said customers are
being targeted through look-alike domains which cyber attackers create by
substituting a few characters in the URLs.
Because they point to malicious online shopping sites that mimic legitimate,
well-known retail websites, it makes it increasingly difficult for customers to
detect the fake domains. Additionally, given that many of these malicious pages
use a trusted SSL/TLS certificate, they appear to be safe for online shoppers
who unknowingly provide sensitive account information and payment data.
The newest factor impacting chargeback losses
E-retailers are finding themselves being victimized by chargeback policy abuse,
a form of cyber-shoplifting — even more so than their brick-and-mortar
counterparts, according to “The State of Chargebacks: 2018 Report,” a study from
dispute mitigation and loss prevention firm, Chargebacks911.
Chargeback policy abuse, or “friendly fraud,” occurs when a consumer makes an
online shopping purchase with their own credit card, and then requests a
chargeback from the issuing bank after receiving — and keeping — their order.
Increasingly gaining momentum, friendly fraud was three times more prevalent in
2017. It also “increased notably in terms of the sophistication of attack
methods,” according to the study.

Baby Formula from Coachella Valley stores will affect you
Baby formula was a hot commodity for a trio of suspected thieves who targeted
Stater Bros. stores across the Inland Empire earlier this year. And because of
thefts like these, stores are altering the way parents can buy formula.
Investigators say the group stole about $3,360 worth of baby formula from at
least five Coachella Valley stores, according to documents recently filed in
Riverside County Superior Court. A Calimesa theft also is linked to the
suspects, who are from the Los Angeles area.
Two of them are identified as Robert Jesus Dominguez and Natalie Ann Noriega,
both 28, but the third is only described as a woman in her 20s. Although charges
have been filed against Dominguez and Noriega, it wasn't clear if they were in
custody for the local thefts, which are detailed in declarations in support of
arrest warrants for the pair. In each theft, two people entered a store with a
stroller covered in a blanket and they pushed a shopping cart to appear
inconspicuous. After filling the stroller with baby formula, they left the store
and fled in a black Toyota Camry.

Deputies say Crawford then began throwing the baby formula out of the car,
before finally pulling over and being arrested.

Secret Service Alerts Banks About ATM ‘Wiretapping’ Attacks, Skimming
According to a non-public alert distributed to banks this week and
KrebsOnSecurity by another source, the Secret Service has received
multiple reports about a form of skimming often called ATM
“wiretapping” or “eavesdropping.”
The attack involves thieves using a drill to make a large hole in the
front of a cash machine, which is then hidden by using a metal
faceplate, or a decal featuring the bank’s logo or boilerplate
instructions on how to use the ATM. Thieves will then fish the card
skimming device through the hole and attach it to the internal card
reader via a magnet. Once the skimmer is in place, thieves often need to
wait a day or two before attaching the pinhole camera.
The hidden camera is usually a false fascia directly in front of or
above the PIN pad, recording victims as they enter their PIN in a
Another method involves thieves replacing the PIN pad security shield on
the ATM with a replica that includes a hidden pinhole camera, hiding the
camera components behind the cut hole and fishing the camera wiring and
