Burlington Coat leads North America in LP job growth over the last 12 months with their LP reorganization and rollout of their new program led by their Senior Vice President of Asset Protection, Jim Connolly.  Being Burlington Coat's first Senior VP of AP in the company's history and the investment they've made in Loss Prevention over the last year certainly qualifies them as being the biggest LP gainer in 2010.

The 2010 Internet Crime Report released last Friday showed 303,809 complaints of internet crime down from 2009's all-time high of 336,655, with 15% regarding non-delivery of payment or merchandise, with 13% scams and 10% identity theft being the top three complaints.  (Source threatpost.com)


Wal-Mart closes offices in Moscow.  Wal-Mart had planned to enter the market through the acquisition of Kopeika (one of Russia's largest grocery chains).  Once talks failed, they see little hope for a future in the market. Due to heavy competition for commercial real estate from European Retailers, the cost of new construction of Wal-Mart stores was not beneficial.

eBay, Retail Partners & Law Enforcement Collaborate on ORC Investigation

eBay Fraud & PROACT investigators worked closely with our retail partners and law enforcement agencies supporting investigative material and in-depth research results in major organized retail theft ring being dismantled. Retailer Safeway worked with the authorities to arrest Richard Remington, 52, and Angela Evans, 32, and claims the group pulled off approx. 178 thefts that were caught on tape at various Safeway stores stealing merchandise. If the allegations are correct, they may well be among the world's most prolific shoplifters. Portland, Ore., police said they have arrested a pair of thieves for allegedly shoplifting some $5 million of merchandise from Safeway stores. Remington and Evans allegedly stole about $400,000 of merchandise a year from Safeway over the span of several years, according to an affidavit signed by Charles Mickly, Deputy District Attorney for Multnomah County. The district attorney's office charged the two with 24 counts of theft and they remain in custody. Click here for article

Interacting in large networking groups can be very challenging even for the most seasoned of executives.  The speed, the number of people, and the amount of information shared can be overwhelming.  However, the one basic principle you can rely on is keep it simple, one person at a time and focus on that person both mentally and visually.  Slow it down in your head and make sure you communicate clearly and sincerely regardless of the background you have with anyone or any group.  Because at the end of the day, you're all part of the same industry, the same community, and everyone has the same objective; to help develop and represent the industry as professionals.

Good Luck

Gus Downing
