U.S. chief executive officers are turning more pessimistic about a second-half recovery While economists predict a continuing expansion this year and next, executives see a mounting number of obstacles that could clip growth. U.S. employers added the fewest number of workers to their payrolls in a year last month, while companies including Tiffany & Co. and mattress maker Tempur-Pedic International Inc. cut their full-year forecasts. European policy makers are also struggling to resolve a crisis that has tipped at least eight of the 17 euro-area economies into recession. The U.S. presidential election is another area of concern, CEOs said. Even with high May sales in retail and articles talking about most retailers having strong balance sheets the pessimism is there.

Multi-National & multi-million $$ cyberfraud gang busted for selling identity theft kits with instructions on how to defraud companies The criminal enterprise, known as Confidential Access (CA), operated from Alicante, Spain. It provided bogus documents and coaching on how to commit fraud. Members of a gang who provided fake identities and documents to thousands of customers have been jailed following a two-and-a-half-year investigation into their multimillion-dollar operation. A production line generated authentic-looking documents for committing fraud, many of which were bundled together and sold as full credit profiles. They included wage slips, credit histories and proof of postal address, making it possible for customers to defraud companies of thousands of pounds. Nautical terms were used to distinguish the levels of trust within the forums. New members began as "deckhands" and would climb the ladder up to "ship's surgeon". Customers who succeeded in committing fraud were asked by CA for 50% of the proceeds of their first scam. (Source guardian.co.uk)

Police dog attacks Wal-Mart worker out on his coffee break sitting on a bench right outside the store. A police dog attacked an employee at a Fayette County Wal-Mart. The Fayette County deputy was using the restroom while the dog was supposedly secured in his SUV. Something triggered the "bailout mechanism" in the SUV and the dog is trained to get out of the vehicle when that happens. Surveillance video shows the dog looking for his handler. When the dog did not see the deputy, it attacks the worker, biting him in the arm and groin. The worker dragged the dog into the Walmart where the deputy managed to get the dog off of him. The 52 year old worker was merely going outside on his coffee break and the door of the police SUV popped open and out came the dog as the employee was sitting on a bench.

New York City Finance Department sweep of 1,700 stores selling cigarettes found 42% selling untaxed or counterfeit tax stamps to avoid the combined $5.85 city-state tax. That is an alarming number," said Jim Calvin, president of the New York Association of Convenience Stores, which represents 1,600 outlets around the state. He added that while there's no excuse for tax evasion, "it's a reflection of the desperation of some store owners" trying to make ends meet in a jurisdiction with the highest cigarette tax in the nation. Since New York cigarettes taxes became the highest in the land a few years ago, revenue has been decreasing. The city took in $158.5 million from its share of the cigarette tax in 2003. However, last year, collections were down to $69.8 million, a 56-percent drop, according to the news report. During that same period, the smoking rate fell 28 percent. Cigarette smuggling in the U.S., primarily due to the different taxes between states is a huge multi-million if not billion dollar problem. (Source csnews.com)

"Kroger's ORC Program -
Delivering a ROI that drives growth"


As most aren't aware of Kroger literally just started their Corporate Loss Prevention program in January of 2008 when they hired Karl Langhorst their first corporate Director of Loss Prevention. Coming out of one of the Safeway divisions Karl had a strong and proven background in driving successful shrinkage reduction programs and delivering "best in class" results. Obviously his experience with one of the industry's leaders in Kathleen Smith, Safeway's Vice President of Loss Prevention, played an invaluable part in his developing the vision and the plan Kroger needed to create an LP model that focused on establishing standards, improving deliverables, maximizing technology, and delivering improved shrinkage results. All of which needing to be accomplished in record time and in a measured environment that had never invested before in a corporate Loss Prevention effort. As you can imagine the challenge was significant and the effort monumental.

Karl LanghorstFrom an Organized Retail Crime prospective Karl found that this 2,500+ store, 18 Division, $74B organization, at the time he joined Kroger, The Kroger Co. didn’t have any dedicated ORC investigators. Given his experience and knowledge Kroger hired their first Corporate Manager, Organized Retail Crime, in August 2009, Dennis Dansak. With 28 years as a Special Agent and Supervising Special Agent managing multi state and multi jurisdictional task forces. Denny brought a focused and highly specialized background that added value and creditability immediately. His subject matter expertise on property crime and managing investigative processes, and his knowledge of how to successfully manage and navigate the various law enforcement agencies has led Kroger into developing one of the most successful ORC programs in the nation. And all within a 3 year time period and in an extremely conservative successful environment that demands return on investment formulas on every investment. With that said and given the fact that Kroger now has 16 fulltime ORC investigators in the field and recently hired the former ASAC of the FBI’s Sacramento Field Office as the ORC Financial Crimes Investigator to track organized groups operating across the United States, it’s obvious that they've built a best in class model that's heavily supported by the senior management team at Kroger. A feat that's even more remarkable given the economic times we've experienced the last four years and the extremely competitive supermarket industry.

To take a non-existent program in 2009 and staff it with 17 new retail Loss Prevention positions is an accomplishment very few if any retailers can claim. These two leaders have been able to convince, show, and prove to their senior management team, a team that has a proven track record of delivering strong results to their shareholders, that investing in a formal and well developed ORC program is a wise investment that helps them improve their operating results. And the fact is their ORC program is still evolving and still growing. As they are continuing, every month, to staff more ORC positions around the country.

Their success, as Denny intuitively points out, starts with the senior management support and is delivered by the team members they hire. Focused on hiring executives that have very specific skill sets that enable them to successfully indentify, manage and resolve boosters and fencing operations the team is comprised of predominantly law enforcement investigators that also brings instant creditability and the subsequent increased results with the various law enforcement agencies they work with throughout the country.

As a supermarket chain their ORC focus has been on increasing the entire organizations ability, at the store level, to identify the boosters quickly and find, shut down, and prosecute the fencing operations with the emphasis being on the fencing operations themselves. Given the nature of their business and the fact that there's over 46,000 convenience stores in the U.S. alone they have a huge potential sellers population that can absolutely sell their products to the general public without anyone being wiser. And with only having to pay 10% to 15% of the retail value to the booster that's a great margin for that c-store operator.

Substantiating their success along the way with product specific and itemized improved shrinkage results Kroger has been able to continue to fund the growth of the ORC effort. Couple this with the senior management support, the actual leadership of the effort, and the team members themselves and what you have is one of the leading and fastest growth ORC programs in North America. And it all started a short three years ago.

Great Job Kroger ORC Team!

D&D Daily Canadian Push


ORC - does it exist in Canada? Or is it that the newspapers just don't pick it up
?
We've certainly heard of a number of ORC cases but rarely do we see anything in the newspapers about the subject. Even when surveys are released in the States, Canadian newspapers just don't pick them up. A number of senior LP executives have mentioned them to us here at the Daily over the years but they never get any press.At the Daily we spend countless hours scoring the papers and the net looking for the articles but rarely see them. Certainly we see the counterfeit cases, ID theft cases, and credit card/debit card cases but rarely the ORC or fencing case. So we at the Daily would like to ask the Canadian LP community - Does it exist there and why doesn't your press pick them up? Any takers?

A READER'S RESPONSE TO OUR FRIDAY ARTICLE--

Submitted by Roy Franco, Regional Loss Prevention Manager, Toysrus Canada

I can tell you from personal experience ORC is alive and well in Canada. I cover part of Ontario, all of Quebec, and the Atlantic provinces for Toysrus. We’re hit regularly by ORC, however there is no mention of this anywhere in the Canadian media. It is not on their radar. We, as a country, still have not learned the seriousness of the problem. Most of the public and media still think that shoplifters are the kids or individual who shoplift for personal use or it’s just the opportunist. The problem isn’t at the same level as the US, but that maybe because of more targets in the US, nobody has looked at it on a per capita basis. I can say that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation did have a documentary last year entitled "The Secret World of Shoplifting" which was mainly focused on ORC. However, they mostly went to the US to do interviews and get data so they did not present an accurate picture of what is happening in Canada.

As for the police well they treat these as theft under $5000.00 or theft over $5000.00. They’re not compiled together as ORC, but rather as random thefts in different retail locations. There is no specific mention of this type of crime in the Canadian Criminal Code and there aren’t any amendments on the horizon.

Tulsa Police Department creates ORC Unit Retail theft costs the City of Tulsa more than $2 million a year in lost sales tax revenue. TPD now has a unit of detectives fighting retail crimes full-time. Tulsa police say dozens of organized groups of thieves called 'boosters', are targeting Tulsa area stores, costing retailers as much as $50 million a year. That cost gets passed on to consumers in terms of higher prices. Four TPD Detectives and a Sergeant are now dedicated to identifying these crooks and tracking boosters down. "These people do this for a living. Some people make a $1,000 to $2,000 a day. They travel from Oklahoma, to Texas and the Arlington area. And then we have some going to Wichita into Western portions of Arkansas." The unit works side by side with loss prevention officers at stores such as Target. Jamie Bourne heads up the Investigations Teams for Target stores in Oklahoma and Texas. "Theft is not just a Target thing. It's really a retail wide thing," says Bourne. "It's a collaborative efforts amongst retailers. We are very much competitors when it comes to selling merchandise. But we're very much a team when it comes to catching the boosters who are stealing from our stores. There's a lot more information sharing amongst retailers than there ever has been in the past. That collaboration, along with law enforcement collaboration is what has led to the success of these kinds of ORC units." Organized Retail Crime Units are popping up at police departments across the country. (Source kjrh.com)

Columbus, Ohio police and Loss Prevention are working together online with the new Ohio ORC Coalition website. Police and retailers have joined forces to form the Ohio Regional Organized Crime Coalition. Company loss prevention officers will have access to a coalition website, where they'll post pictures of suspected boosters. That website will allow law enforcement agents to identify, investigate, and prosecute boosters who cross jurisdictions. With Ohio's first state conference just last week and the new website taking off, the news channels are already picking up the story. Great job Ohio ORC Coalition!

FraudFighter Announces New Low-Cost Solutions for Identity Authentication and Data Capture

The product line features integrated hardware and software platforms that capture high-resolution images of ID documents while simultaneously conducting high-confidence authentication of the document


Glendora, CA June 01, 2012 --FraudFighter Products, trusted advisors for multi-layered fraud prevention solutions, announced today that they have introduced a new line of low cost solution to the Identity Document Authentication marketplace.

FraudFighter’s "COMBO SCAN" & "SMART COMBO" products are new additions to their existing line of identity Image Capture and Authentication ("ICA") solutions. The ICA product line features integrated hardware and software platforms that capture high-resolution images of ID documents while they simultaneously conduct high-confidence authentication of the document by cross-comparing multiple physical security characteristics with the industry leading authentication library.

Identity Theft is a global problem causing 100’s of Billions of dollars in losses each year with new Account Fraud representing the largest growing segment at over $17 billion. International organized crime rings, armed with the latest in digital graphics and printing technology, are able to effectively recreate a victim’s stolen identity by producing near-perfect ID documents containing accurate personal information (ID number, name, address, social security number, etc). These ID documents will have the photo of the criminal on them, so that a transaction-level examination by a human being will typically not be able to detect the fakes.
 

"Many organizations are affected by this increasing trend in identity fraud"
 

Among the industries experiencing exponential growth in dollar losses, or that face regulatory pressure to authenticate identities include: Financial-checking, mortgage, credit card, money laundering Rental Agencies-automobile, electronics, equipment rental Employment-HR employment verification, secure access Hospitality-nightclubs, bars, restaurants, hotels Retail-POS returns, credit card, gift card Pharmacy-CMEA, Class 3&4 prescription authorization Age restricted products-Alcohol, tobacco

"The reason the introduction of these new products is so important," says Jim Smith, Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing for FraudFighter, "is because they significantly lower the barrier to entry from a price point perspective. Solutions of this type were originally developed for government use, in border control and immigration applications. By adapting the technology for commercial applications, we have been able to strip away the unnecessary functions and provide our commercial clients with the same level of authentication the US Government uses, at a price point as much as 60% lower than what may have previously been available." In essence we are delivering complete ID Authentication at the same price as traditional Verification.

FraudFighter will be hosting a live webinar event, on Thursday, June 15th, at 11:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time. The webinar will feature a live demonstration of the new products. Viewers will get to see real-time as Identity Documents are scanned, authenticated, and archived.

Tip of the Day - Sponsored by Vector Security
 

It's all in the prep! What an understatement. Preparation is the footer to all successful programs, trips, interviews, rollouts, virtually everything. Quite frankly, it's also the lack thereof that leads to most failures. One cannot over prepare for anything you do, but the key is, once prepped, having the faith in yourself to pull it off. There's an imaginary line you cross when you get close to the time you have to perform where you've got to put down the prep and relax right before the game starts so to speak and just rely on your memory and instincts to kick into gear. It's almost like you need time to let your brain take a break right before the gun sounds so you can allow your focus to take hold and your instincts to take over. Prep-Focus-Perform, what a rhythm!

Just a thought,
