Nearly Half of Americans Have Received Notice of Possible Credit Card Breach -
15% hit by online fraud Just fewer than half of
Americans say that a retailer, bank or credit-card company has told them or a
household member that their payment card details were stolen in a data breach,
according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. That figure has
contributed to what many retail analysts are calling "breach fatigue," in which
consumers stop worrying about cyberattacks because they appear in the news so
frequently. In the past year alone, major breaches have been reported at Target,
J.P. Morgan Chase, Home Depot, K-Mart, SuperValu and others. In many of those
cases, the victims and card-issuers pledged to protect consumers from fraudulent
charges. Some 45% of Americans said they had received such a breach notification
letter from a retailer or card-issuer that their payment data had been affected
by a breach. The poll also found that more Americans than ever think they have
been targeted in Internet crime. As of December, 15% said either they or a
member of their household had been hit by online fraud or hacking. When Gallup
asked the same question more than four years ago, 11% answered yes.
Retail Associations Take Cyber-Security Concerns To Capitol Hill
Five retail trade organizations including the Food Marketing Institute, National
Association of Convenience Stores, National Grocers Association, National
Restaurant Association, National Retail Federation and the Retail Industry
Leaders Association have written to the United States Comptroller of Currency
and the Senate Banking Committee to clear up what they refer to as
"misconceptions" about the relative effects of cyber-security breaches on
retailers. The retail groups makes four central observations: 1) They pay
a share of data breach costs. 2) The pay card re-issues costs in the
aftermath of a breach. 3) Both financial institutions and retailers have
suffered breaches (and financial institutions suffer from proportionally more
and more costly breaches.) 4) Retailers have invested heavily in payment
security through EMV, tokenization and P2P encryption, among other things. The
retailers further note the failure of the mag stripe and the fact that the
switch to Chip and Sig is not sufficient. They stress that the EMV migration
should be to a full Chip and PIN.
UK Law firm warns retailers of the risk of leaving employees alone this
As the countdown to the festive season begins, law firm, Gardner Leader
reminds retailers juggling holiday requests to check their policy for lone
workers following a recent health & safety breach. This warning from one of the
largest law firms in Berkshire comes after convenience store operator McColl
was fined 150,000 Pounds ($235,000) for failing to protect its staff during a
series of store robberies in Merseyside. The case was brought by Wirral
Council, who argued that the company's "failure to carry out risk assessments
for shop staff exposed them to a risk of workplace violence", as well as other
health and safety breaches. The six incidents took place between April 2011 and
February 2012. One robbery left a shop manager with concussion, another member
of staff was threatened with a knife, and some of the staff said they were so
traumatised, they did not feel they could work in a shop again. At the hearing,
the court heard that shop staff had raised concerns about the lack of lockable
doors into back room areas and the need for CCTV. In finding the company guilty
of the charges, the judge pointed to the "systemic failings both on and before
the date of the actual robberies" and stressed the importance of risk assessment
saying: "The absence of proper and adequate risk assessments is where things
started to go fundamentally wrong."
Toledo, OH Police used Pepper Spray on mall crowd at another Air Jordan release
Toledo police early today used pepper spray on a crowd that had gathered outside
the Franklin Park Mall for a chance to buy a Nike Air Jordan shoe later this
week. Several witnesses told The Blade they saw police spray into the crowd. No
injuries were reported after the incident at 5:30 a.m. Toledo police Sgt.
Anthony Gillen said police had been at the mall since 3:35 a.m. He said several
police officers were pushed by the crowd. He said they had to control the crowd.
Just after 7:30 a.m. today, a crowd of about 300 that had lined up outside the
mall's Finish Line store started to disperse. Those in the crowd said tickets
were out at the store for the right to buy the Air Jordan Retro "Legend Blue"
shoe. Toledo police were called to the mall, by mall security, for the crowd and
additional officers were called as the crowd grew. Mall representatives put
"barriers" in place to control the crowd, but police said the crowd of about 200
broke through a police perimeter and "over ran officers," The shoe goes on sale
Abercrombie Rejected a 17-Year-Old Girl for a Job - And Now the Supreme Court
Will Hear Her Case The US Supreme Court will hear a dispute this term
over Abercrombie & Fitch's decision not to hire a 17-year-old Muslim girl who
wore a headscarf and would have violated the store's notorious "Look Policy."
The justices agreed to hear Samantha Elauf's case back in October, and in recent
days "friend of the court" briefs supporting her have flooded in from the ACLU,
several states, and the American Jewish Committee, as well as gay rights and
religious liberty groups. At Abercrombie, "models" are sales associates who are
expected to model the store's style in compliance with its "Look Policy." An
Abercrombie assistant manager considered Elauf a "good candidate" but wasn't
sure whether her headscarf violated Abercrombie's so-called look policy,
according to the EEOC brief. That assistant manager consulted a manager,
explaining that she thought Elauf wore the scarf for religious reasons. The
manager said the headscarf wasn't permitted, even if Elauf wore it because she
was a Muslim, according to the EEOC.
Avon Products settles bribery charges for $135M
Avon Products will pay $135 million to settle criminal and civil charges after
its China unit pleaded guilty to conspiring to violate the Foreign Corrupt
Practices Act by bribing officials there. Avon is the world's largest direct
seller of cosmetics. Its Avon China unit admitted it disguised gifts its
employees gave Chinese government officials from at least 2004 through late
2008. It said it concealed and disguised cash, non-business meals, travel and
entertainment it provided to obtain business benefits.
Wal-Mart, Amazon, Sears under fire for selling
realistic assault-rifle toy guns Wal-Mart, Amazon, Sears, and K-Mart
are under fire for selling toy guns that look too realistic. New York's attorney
general has sent cease-and-desist letters to the retailers ordering them to stop
selling the toys, which include plastic versions of assault rifles and handguns,
the AP reports. New York state law prohibits the sale of toy guns in "realistic"
colors such as black, blue, silver, and aluminum, unless it has an orange stripe
running down both sides of the barrel and the front end of the barrel. An
investigation found that Wal-Mart, Amazon, K-Mart, and others were allegedly
selling prohibited toy guns online. The attorney general is cracking down on toy
guns one month after a
12-year-old boy carrying a pellet gun was shot and killed by police in Ohio.
NFC-enabled mobile payments to total $130 billion by 2020
Payments made via near field communications (NFC)-enabled mobile handsets
will account for $130 billion in worldwide consumer retail spend by 2020,
according to a study by Strategy Analytics. This equates to 254 million mobile
users making five payments per month at an average of just below $9 per
transaction. To date, retailers have been slow to support NFC payments
in-stores. However, Strategy Analytics believes the launch of Apple Pay in
October 2014 combined with a push by payment network will stimulate the adoption
of NFC-enabled point-of-sale (POS) terminals by retailers.

Fraud-Proof Credit Cards Possible With Quantum Physics
As reported in The Optical Society's (OSA) new high-impact journal Optica, a
team of researchers from the Netherlands has harnessed the power of quantum
mechanics to create a fraud-proof method for authenticating a physical “key”
that is virtually impossible to thwart. This innovative security measure,
known as Quantum-Secure Authentication, can confirm the identity of any
person or object, including debit and credit cards, even if essential
information (like the complete structure of the card) has been stolen. It
uses the unique quantum properties of light to create a secure
question-and-answer (Q&A) exchange that cannot be "spoofed" or copied.
Traditional magnetic-stripe-only cards are relatively simple to use but also
simple to copy. Recently, banks have begun issuing so-called "smart cards"
that include a microprocessor chip to authenticate, identify and enhance
security. But regardless of how complex the code or how many layers of
security, the problem remains that an attacker who obtains the information
stored inside the card can copy or emulate it. The new approach outlined in
this paper avoids this risk entirely by using the peculiar quantum
properties of photons that allow them to be in multiple locations at the
same time to convey the authentication questions and answers. Though
difficult to reconcile with our everyday experiences, this strange property
of light can create a fraud-proof Q&A exchange, like those used to authorize
credit card transactions.
The retailer side of the bitcoin equation
What drives a merchant to begin accepting virtual currency as payment? And,
how can that acceptance help drive sales – and perhaps even change up a
retailer's customer mix? In early November, representatives from three
merchants – Amagi Metals, Newegg and the Golden Gate Casino – gathered
together at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas to share their insights
during the Money20/20 event. At a panel presentation titled "Retailers
Accepting Bitcoin Share Perspectives," the trio explained how virtual
currency had impacted their businesses. Newegg, the online retailer perhaps
best known for its computer and other tech offerings, began accepting
bitcoin in January 2014 in response to its customers, said Soren Mills,
Newegg's Chief Marketing Officer. "Our customers are at the forefront of
mining – it's important for us to support customers who are using the
technology. Our customers, then, expect us to be at the forefront of
innovation in selling leading-edge products. So bitcoin was a natural fit

that deviate from the norm."

Walmart shoplifters fake heart attack; suspects to spend Christmas in jail
Two men may be charged with grand larceny, but it can't be denied they put a lot
of heart into getting Christmas presents. Police said that the heart of this
shoplifting scam was a fake heart attack. According to authorities, Tarus Scott,
wearing a red hat and vest, entered a Florida Walmart with his buddy, Genard
Dupree, who had on a light sweatshirt. The two start loading stuff in a cart.
"They were going to steal Christmas presents and one of them was a Barbie car,"
said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. They went toward the door, separately.
That's where Dupree gently lied down on the floor and started to clutch his
chest. Eventually, a shopper noticed and started to look for help. Scott, with
the loaded cart, slips out the door. As soon as the cart cleared the store,
Dupree recovered. Miracles occur around Christmas. His heart was all better and
he strolled out. The two met in the parking lot and take off. Their getaway car
was not the pink Barbie car. The fake heart attack caused Walmart to examine
their security cam video. They discovered the theft, and the sheriff's
department had no trouble identifying the suspects since both had long arrest
records. Scott recently had been released from prison after serving 10 years for
armed robbery. "So guess what? We wish them a merry Christmas from our county
jail," Judd said.
Vigilant Police Officer Nabs Serial Shoplifter, Wanted by Mt. Juliet, TN & Other
Agencies While a Mt. Juliet Police Officer was on patrol today, he
noticed a known vehicle used in recent shoplifting thefts from Walmart
travelling down Interstate 40. The gold Honda Accord was stopped this afternoon
around 12:45 p.m., and the driver was identified as Michael Baucom, 42, of
Nashville. Baucom is a known thief from the Metro-Nashville area. On November 6,
2014, Baucom attempted to steal over $1,400 in merchandise from Walmart. A
manager spotted him pushing the merchandise under a fence, and the manager was
able to prevent the theft. Baucom fled, but a warrant was obtained for his
arrest that he was arrested on today. During today's traffic stop, Baucom
attempted to deceive the officer by providing a false name. However, the officer
already knew who Baucom was. A check for warrants revealed that Baucom was
wanted out of Wilson County for the Mt. Juliet Walmart theft and violation of
conditional release, Robertson County for one failure to appear on trespassing
warrant, and Metro-Davidson County for eight different warrants related to
trespassing and theft.
Accused 'Serial Shoplifter' Leads Huntington, WV Police On Chase
Police said it took a chase through downtown Huntington and a stun gun to stop
and arrest an accused serial shoplifter near Pullman Square. They said the man
targeted at least four stores, stealing clothing, a watch and a handful of other
items. Huntington Police said a call from a nearby Starbucks helped them find
him. Huntington Police said Eric Harlin Parsley, 23, of Huntington, wanted to
get his shopping done without spending a penny. He'd taken a watch and several
clothing items, but those thefts weren't what gave him away. Instead,
investigators said it was his attempt to steal a $100 coffeemaker from
Suspected Credit Card Thieves Ring Up $8.5K at Target in Rockville, MD
Police are reminding residents to check their credit card statements frequently
and take other precautions after two suspected thieves rang up more than $8,500
worth of purchases in eight minutes with stolen credit cards at a Rockville
Target store. NBC Washington reports the rightful owner of the credit cards
didn’t realize they were missing until she began receiving text alerts about
expensive purchases. While at dinner with her husband, the woman received a text
message about a costly purchase, followed seconds later by another alert. The
victim checked her purse and realized her wallet was gone. Two women shown on
Target’s security camera allegedly charged $4,000 to a Visa card, $4,000 to an
American Express card and $530.05 to a MasterCard.
Willowbrook, NJ shoplifters used 'booster bags' in $2800 spree
A trio of shoplifters armed with "booster bags" - shopping bags equipped to
conceal merchandise from theft alarms - nearly made off with $2,800 worth of
items from the Willowbrook Mall. The three New York residents were trailed
through the mall Dec. 11 and arrested in the parking lot as they were entering a
vehicle, police said. Alyssa M. Roberts, 26, of Montgomery, N.Y., and Stanley
Dolan, 35, of Maybrook, N.Y., were each charged with receiving stolen property,
possession of an anti-theft shoplifting device and possession of drug
paraphernalia. Shawn M. Brown, 29, of Middletown, N.Y., was charged with
receiving stolen property and possession of an anti-theft device.
Ringleader, other Volusia Co, FL suspects arrested in mailbox check thefts
The man Volusia County sheriff's investigators identified as the ringleader of a
multi-county mail theft and check fraud ring has been arrested, as have three of
his cohorts, sheriff's officials said Wednesday. Sean Daniel Drawdy, 36, of
South Daytona was pegged as the head of a 15-member ring that has been stealing
personal checks from residential mailboxes in Volusia, Flagler, St. Johns and
Seminole counties for the last several months.
Mother and daughter arrested for $750 theft at Paris (TX) Towne Center A

Family sues for $8 million in 2012 Springettsbury, PA shooting death
(Warning: This video contains profanity and extreme violence)
Did the police Officer go to far in using deadly force?
The prosecutor did not release the video during the hearing. Judge for
yourselves. Devon Jacob,
who is representing Shultz's family, alleged that York County District Attorney
Tom Kearney covered up evidence in the report by not releasing the video, and by
not addressing if the officers' actions were "reasonable." Speaking outside the
Kmart where Shultz died, Jacob said the officers involved were back on the
streets, following being cleared of wrongdoing by state police and the DA. Jacob
said the second round of bullets is what he views as "problematic." There's a
lot of talk about what Shultz could have done, he said, but "he could have done
a lot of things." "In fairness," Jacob said, "officers have a very difficult
job. I'm not here to in hindsight question every move."
involved shooting at Stein Mart burglary in Tucson, AZ
Hayden police officers took a man into custody Wednesday who was suspected of
smashing windows of a store, and then striking an officer with a stolen getaway
car in Tucson's midtown. Laine Ogletree, 24, was arrested and was found with
gunshot trauma, said Tucson Police Sgt. Chris Widmer late Wednesday night. No
further information was immediately available on the arrest or Ogletree's
condition. The incident started in Tucson just before 7 a.m. at Stein Mart, 5555
E. Broadway Blvd., at North Craycroft Road. An employee called police after a
man started throwing rocks through the store's windows, said Widmer. Officers
found the man hiding in the bushes near the store, but he ran off and jumped
into a car that belonged to an employee of a nearby business, Widmer said. One
of the first two officers at the scene was struck by the stolen getaway car and
the officer fired twice at the fleeing vehicle, said Widmer.
Jury Convicts Accused On Second Degree Murder Charges In Toronto's Eaton Centre
Shooting A jury has found a man accused in the deadly 2012 shooting at
Toronto's Eaton Centre mall guilty of second-degree murder. Christopher Husbands
was also convicted on five counts of aggravated assault and one count of
criminal negligence causing bodily harm. The 25-year-old admitted to shooting
and killing Nixon Nirmalendran and Ahmed Hassan and wounding five others in June
2012, but pleaded not guilty to all charges against him. His defense team argued
that he should be found not criminally responsible for the shooting. They said
Husbands developed post-traumatic stress disorder after a brutal attack and
stabbing in the months before the Eaton Centre shooting. The defense said his
PTSD set off an intense emotional reaction when he saw two of his assailants in
the mall's food court. The Crown argued that Husbands opened fire at the mall
because he was determined to get revenge on the men who had attacked him months
Teen arrested in connection with fatal Walmart shooting in Stafford, TX
A teen has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a man outside
of a Walmart last week in Stafford. Antonio De la Cruz, 19, is in police
custody. Deputies did not provide any updates on his two friends who are also
wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of 35-year-old Christian Eduardo
Cardoza on Dec. 10. Investigators with the Stafford Police Department said that
when the Cardoza family left the store De La Cruz and his friends were waiting
for them in the parking lot. They began attacking the women and two teens.
Two Men Arrested During Door Busting Target Robbery in Northeast Philadelphia;
possible connection to 6 other Target burglaries Police have arrested two
men who they say broke into the Target store in northeast Philadelphia early
Tuesday morning. Cops arrived on the scene while the suspects were still in the
store! The Target store on Roosevelt Blvd stays open until 11:00pm, but officers
say the suspects came after closing time. It appears they came in through the
back entrance. FOX 29's Steve Keeley says they used a saw to cut through the
door and created a walkway. The suspects turned off surveillance cameras, and
then hit the alarm. Police showed up shortly after. Officers sent all units and
saw the burglars running through the store when they arrived to the scene. The
suspects then ran to the roof of the store. Officers sent a K-9 to look for the
suspects, that's when they found two men laying on top of each other. Both men
were taken to Philadelphia Police Northeast Detectives for questioning. Police
tell FOX 29 these two men may be responsible for six other burglaries at Target
stores in the area since mid-November.
Four Cellular Phone store burglaries in Irving Park and Mayfair, IL
Police are warning business owners on the Northwest Side of a series of
burglaries in the area over the past month. Four commercial burglaries occurred
in Irving Park and Mayfair neighborhoods between Nov. 23 and Tuesday, according
to an alert from the Chicago Police Department's Office of News Affairs. In
these incidents, unknown offenders forcibly entered a cellphone store either by
throwing a brick through the front window or prying open the rear door,
according to the statement. The thieves then would steal cellphones and other
merchandise from the store.
Suspect sought for string of Downriver CVS robberies possibly nabbed in Allen
Park, MI A 20-year-old Wyandotte man was arrested Sunday following an
attempted armed robbery at the CVS Pharmacy in Allen Park. Dalton James
Yarbrough, who was arraigned Tuesday on charges of attempted armed robbery and
obstructing and resisting arrest, may also be responsible for several other CVS
robberies that have occurred recently throughout the Downriver area, said Allen
Park Detective Sgt. Vince Genaw. Specifically, he is believed to be the suspect
responsible for the recent armed robberies of the CVS and Rite Aid in Wyandotte,
the CVS in Lincoln Park and the CVS in Taylor, Genaw said.
police use ATV team to deter shoplifters
The Greensboro Police Department hopes the use of their ATV team in shopping
centers will deter theft. Thursday two officers used the ATVs to patrol around
Shoppes at Friendly Center. Officer Brian Price said the four-wheelers give a
presence to shoppers as well as allow them to maneuver the area quickly if there
is a shoplifting call. "We've found we can cover a lot of real estate a lot
faster in these units when we're doing these types of patrols," Price said. All
six of the ATV's were bought with seized drug money.
San Luis Obispo Police alerts downtown businesses of thefts
The San Luis Obispo Police Department is alerting downtown businesses about
recent thefts. Ambiance on the 700 block of Higuera Street was one of the
businesses hit Tuesday. Officers say a woman walked into the store, ripped the

merchandise. Shortly after the thefts, police used a newly-created Nixle program
to alert businesses in the area of the thefts. "It's a free service that they
can join and it's a way for us to disseminate information to them, and it's just
a way to get out anything that's pertinent that affects the downtown area," said

Selecting the companies you want to work for is harder than you
think. It may not be the obvious list when you take into consideration
geography, organizational structure, and success of the retailer, growth plans
and growth opportunities for your own career. Do some research on each company
and open your mind to the small companies. They have just as many opportunities
as the rest. They're harder to get in and communicate with, but if it's done
right, you may be surprised. One executive years ago sent a letter to a company
president who didn't have an LP program and made some bold commitments. He went
on to build a very successful LP program there. Be aggressive!
