ORC duo- men dressed as women - committing credit card fraud busted in Manhattan Beach, CA and hitting businesses and retailers all over Southern CA. Cornell "Corey" Jackson, 29, of Lakewood and Marquet Dorsey, 24, of Rialto - who both stand more than 6 feet tall, weigh 200 pounds and sport long black hair - are suspected of purchasing thousands of dollars worth of goods by duping the clerks at retail stores into processing their phony cards, police said. Manhattan Beach detectives opened the case June 1 when Jackson allegedly purchased $1,172 worth of sunglasses from Trendy Sunglasses in Manhattan Beach using a prepaid Visa card with a zero balance. When the card was declined, Jackson got on his phone and said he was calling Visa to fix the problem. He then had Dorsey pose as a Visa employee and call the store clerk, Martin said. "Dorsey tricked the clerk into processing the sale by providing a fictitious `authorization code,' thus approving the transaction," Martin said. The clerk took the code, which matched normal approval numbers that display on credit card swipe machines, and plugged it into the system. Police suspect the men engaged in at least 40 fraudulent transactions. Each was run similarly: One of the men would use an unfunded or fictitious credit card to buy goods. When the card was declined, the other man posed on the phone as an employee of a credit card company. (Source

ORC Joint Operation - Gilroy, CA

Gilroy, CA - There will be an ORC Operation in the Gilroy Outlet Center on July 18 and 19, 2012. The Gilroy Police Department has committed that they will be a part of the operation and CHP has indicated they are likely to be involved in the operation as well. There have been a few retailers that have committed that they will be on site and involved but we will need more participation in an effort that will be a major offensive to Organized Retail Crime in the area. I encourage you to contact me at: to stay in touch on the operation as well as participate.

There is a news crew from NBC who is very interested in the operation according to CHP and our position on this is "that if the local news affiliate wants to come and cover our handiwork AFTER we have landed something and they want to film everyone all lined up and stacks of recovered stolen product, they are welcome to do so. However, we cannot make a decision like this for every retailer involved in this operation". Any retailer who wants to be involved in this operation and doesn't want their company information disclosed will have the right to that privacy.
