The mobile payments world now has its own trade association committee to pull together all the companies involved in the arena and offer trade association values and benefits. The Electronic Transactions Association has launched a mobile payments committee, a task force of representatives from companies throughout the complex arena. All four major U.S. wireless carriers are on board with Google, Wells Fargo; Capital One; American Express; Discover; MasterCard; Visa; PayPal, which offers a mobile wallet; checkout terminal vendor VeriFone; Intuit, a software maker with a mobile payments app; transaction processor First Data; hardware maker Panasonic; and data management and fraud prevention vendor Neustar. However notable by its absence is Square. The committee is chaired by Jackie Moran, executive director of federal relations for Verizon. "As a nascent industry, the mobile payments market is just beginning to realize its full potential as a robust enabler of global electronic commerce," Moran says. "The committee is designed to ensure that the early stages of mobile payments are handled in the best possible way: With insight and ingenuity from all the players—private as well as public sector—involved in the future of mobile payments."

Online Q2 retail spending up 15% and hits $43.2B U.S. online retail recorded its eleventh consecutive quarter of positive year-over-year growth and seventh consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, according to ComScore. (Source retailingtoday.com)

The 2012 National Supermarket Shrink Survey 2011 research by FMI and The Retail Control Group into the 'causes and cures' of retail supermarket shrink indicates that 64% of store shrink is directly caused by a breakdown in, or the absence of effective store operating best practices, while 36% of store shrink is cause by theft and/or misdeeds. This is causing a shift in the roll of loss prevention and asset protection. (Source theshrinksurvey.com)


 


By Gene James
Director Asset Protection
Jack in the Box, Inc.


Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the 33rd Annual National Food Service Security Council Conference in the beautiful and renovated city of Baltimore. When you live in San Diego, getting motivated to go to a conference in another city is a tall order, so I must admit some reluctance of going to Baltimore only to discover what a great city it is to hold an event. Baltimore has a new fan and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

I have attended every NFSSC conference since 1994 and as is always the case, the board of NFSSC once again exceeded my expectations. Under the very capable leadership of NFSSC President Chris Manning from Wendy’s, Program Chair John Morris of Jack in the Box, the remainder of the NFSSC board including, James Brussow of Dave & Buster’s, Winston Griffin of McDonalds, Joe Verber of Taco Bell and Ted Polensky of Boddie-Noell, as well as our creative and dedicated Executive Director Jim Forlenza, a most enlightening and informative program was delivered to attendees in a great setting overlooking the historic Inner Harbor of Baltimore. The Board delivered a quality product to the attendees and vendors. I cannot say enough good things about the Board and their commitment to this conference, the organization and the membership.
While at the conference I witnessed some of the strongest presenters in the history of the conference. I have gone to several presentations in the past on social media but nothing as informative and succinct as what was presented by Helen Levinson of Desert Rose Design. I would recommend all loss prevention practitioners to learn more about the risk created by social media, how to mitigate that risk and if possible attend a presentation by Ms. Levinson. It is a threat we are managing everyday and Helen is the point of the spear in combating that risk.

In recent years NFSSC has adopted a practice of having two keynote speakers who are CEO/COOs within the restaurant industry. It is always one of my favorite sessions to hear from such senior leadership to get their perspective on how vital it is to provide a safe and secure environment for our employees and guests. This year, Mr. Charlie Strong, President, McDonalds USA and McOpCo and Mr. Bill Boddie President/CEO of Boddie-Noell Enterprises both imparted incredibly inspirational messages and delivered invaluable pearls of wisdom relating to the vital roles of asset protection departments in their individual organizations. NFSSC is very appreciative of these leaders for taking valuable time from their very busy schedules to be with us in Baltimore.

Other sessions and workshops that created a buzz were presented by Cory Swick with Magtek Inc, who spoke on the pros and cons of mobile commerce from the perspective of loss prevention practitioners, while highlighting fraud and risk concerns. Walt Augustinowicz, President, Identity Stronghold, presented a very informative and almost frightening look at identity theft and the role of loss prevention and security professionals to protect their customers. Additional programs featured the use of smart safes, utilizing exception based reporting, identifying and interacting with crime prevention networks, successful screening and interviewing techniques and updates on new labor laws among others. All of these programs help attendees become more efficient and effective.

I would be remiss not to mention our vendor-exhibitor partners. Year after year we have many of the same great vendor partners who come to be with us and every year we have new ones who I hope can become fixtures of the show in the future. Without the generous support of our vendor partners our organization would be relegated to having diminished conferences. Our membership owes the vendors a big thank you for their valuable support. A special thank you goes out to those vendors who sponsored events for the conference. Their support adds a great deal to the experience one has at the NFSSC Conference.

Picture: NFSSCFinally, I would like to note that the 2013 conference will be held August 4-7, at the M Resort, Spa and Casino in Las Vegas. I highly recommend this conference for anyone in the restaurant/food service business who is responsible for corporate loss prevention, security and safety. It is my very strong belief that hotel operators, retailers, contract food service operators, franchisees and a host of others who are not traditional restaurant operators would greatly benefit from this great conference. I look forward to seeing my old friends who I have known for years at the next conference. I would be remiss not to mention my newly minted friends and how great it would be to see you again at NFSSC. It is my sincerest hope that all of you can make it to Vegas next year for what I am very confident will be another educational, informative, and rewarding conference delivered by the National Food Service Security Council.
 

Video: Shoplifting suspect opens fire inside Burlington Coat Factory"Active shooter" incident in Wichita, KS., Burlington Coat Factory store at Eastgate Mall Monday morning.

Peoria, ILL.'s, infamous "Purse Lady" counterfeit operators who sold more then $1M get 24 months and 36 months in federal prison
. As reported this past May in the Daily, the two women operating the counterfeit business known as "The Purse Lady" sold their counterfeit goods at house parties, through various businesses, by mail and through a warehouse in Argenta, ILL., and were famous in their local town for selling knock-offs and claiming the merchandise was indeed knock-offs. Law enforcement agents executed search warrants in May in both Argenta and Bloomington and recovered more than 15,000 counterfeit items whose suggested retail price made them worth $1.6 million. The haul included 2,000 purses, 900 wallets and 400 pairs of sunglasses, along with nearly 11,000 "emblems and medallions." Grant surrendered a 2008 Dodge Caravan van and a 2003 BMW car as part of the raid, and agents collected $18,000 in cash from her home. Police said the women had advertised their items as being "replica/knockoff" and had told customers that all references to famous name brands were for "entertainment and novelty purposes only." They had frequently traveled to Chicago and New York to purchase fresh inventory. They begin serving their terms on Oct 9. (Source herald-review.com)

Nordstrom loses $1.4M to thieves that never even received one item of merchandise
. A loophole in the e-commerce site of Nordstrom.com tied to a frequent shoppers coupon program called FatWall.com paid the thieves $1.4 in rebate cash for shopping online, never having to leave their home. Every time the suspects placed an order through Nordstrom.com, which they did frequently, $23 Million worth, it was automatically blocked. Their credit cards were never billed and no merchandise was ever shipped. Nordstrom still paid the seven percent to Fat Wallet on orders it collected no money on, and the suspects got a 3.5-percent rebate on purchases they never made. The suspects are now heading to prison on federal wire fraud charges; Nordstrom has closed the loophole in the system.  (Source dallasobserver.com)

eBay Investigators Assist With Solving Car Scam Leads to Jail Sentence

eBay Global Asset Protection team supported investigation into alleged conman who swindled people by selling them non-existent cars through the eBay auction website has been jailed for 14 months. Prosecutor Alan Lovett described how suspect advertised cars through eBay and persuaded six people to send payments directly into his bank account, rather than using the secure payment system PayPal. Over the course of three days in January, the suspect accepted payments ranging from 800 pounds to 3,400 pounds. The money was withdrawn from his account almost immediately, said Lovett. He added the suspect had 38 prior offences on his criminal record, and they included 23 previous thefts. In a letter written to the judge, the suspect said he was willing to face prison and was determined, on his release, to get his life back on track. Click here for full article.

 "Transitioning to Your New Job as an LP Director"

by Mike Keenan, CPP, CFI
Vice President of Loss Prevention
GAP North America


A quote that has been around for a while is “a well run store equals low shortage.” This makes perfect sense but how do you ensure that a store is running well? How about another quote? “You get what you inspect.” An LP audit program enables you to monitor store compliance to shortage control policies and procedures on a periodic basis. By monitoring store performance and correcting identified deficiencies throughout the year, you can prevent a poor shortage result.

If your company does not have an LP Audit program, you should consider putting one in place. If your company does have an existing audit program, you should evaluate its effectiveness. Often times you will find the existing audit program does not have a true impact on controlling shortage.

The two keys to a successful LP audit program are objectivity and accountability. The first key is objectivity. The audits must give an accurate picture of what is actually happening in a store. If they don’t, they have limited value. In order to correct issues, you must know what they are. Auditors must be able to objectively report their findings. Of course that makes sense but it doesn’t always happen. Here is something to consider. If the person who conducts the audits reports directly to the District Manager or Regional Manager who is responsible for running the stores, can they truly audit objectively? Will their “partnership” be jeopardized if the LP person fails them in an audit? Will their performance evaluations be negatively impacted? Review audits for the past year. Is every store passing? If they are, it is an indicator that the audits may not be objective. It would be a very well run company indeed if every store passed every audit. Try to set up your LP auditors so that they report independently from the people who run the facilities they are auditing.

The second key is accountability. If a store fails an audit, are there consequences? Are the consequences serious enough to get the attention of the person being audited? For example, if a store fails an audit, does it result in disciplinary action? Does it impact their performance evaluation or bonus? If the consequences aren’t meaningful, store management will not focus the appropriate attention on taking the actions necessary to pass the audits. You must elicit Senior Management’s support in developing the appropriate consequences so that store management knows that it is a company priority.

Thought Challenge



Manager or Leader?

Submitted by AJ Crank
Asset Protection Manager
The Home Depot.


Protecting the assets of whatever company you may work for isn't easy as we all know. Companies are always changing. And with change, comes struggles for many people. The ability to adapt to new processes, technology, and even roles can sometimes be difficult for many. As we take a step back and evaluate whether or not our current strategy to be the best is working, we sometimes find that we may not always have the right people on the bus as I'm sure many of you have heard before.

The question you have to ask yourself is this, am I in the right seat... or should I even be on this bus? We often ask ourselves these questions, especially when our mid-year or annual self-reviews roll around.

I have done my fair share of career soul searching. As a young professional, I stood my ground tall and proud with my approach as to how I managed my business. Becoming the product expert, the go to guy for policy and procedure, the enforcer of safety! But it hasn't been until most recently, when I made the decision to change companies, that being the product expert or the hammer isn't going to get me ANYWHERE.

Sitting in a class that I chose to attend for my self-development, I heard the term Executive Presence. What does your billboard say about you? As I sat there and pondered, I realized that if my billboard were an advertisement for a burger and fries, I wouldn't want to eat there. Perception is everything. When you are shopping with your family, do random people walk up to you and ask Do you work here? When you are walking your business with a group of associates or employees, do people know who is running the show? Can they tell who is directing the ship? Or who is leading the battle on this war we call shrink? Is that LEADER you?

Loss Prevention is all about managing metrics, numbers, stats, goals, shall I go on? We are a numbers driven profession. We get caught up in deep diving into previous year's numbers to see how much more money we can squeeze out of an area this year. How can I turn that tenth of a percent into a thousandth? Too often we become a MANAGER of numbers and metrics. To this I say. Let's stop trying to manage numbers. Instead, let's be the leader of our business.

Let us be the head coach of our team and develop our people. Develop our associates to the point where THEY are the product experts and know the ins and outs of policy and procedures. Give them the knowledge and feeling of self-worth. We as LPs only few, but when we can get a whole team behind us, not one person is smarter than that team. Taking the time to teach and train in the aisles goes a long way. The feeling of knowing that you have made an impact on someone's professional life is far more rewarding than pulling out that one or two basis point win during inventory. Showing folks the right way to do something and then taking the time to explain the WHY is a very powerful tool. We sometimes forget to add that one small crucial step. We can always circle around and manage the number, but it's not as easy to circle back around and try to mend that partnership with someone you had made a promise to or that one person you failed by not following back up with.

We are professionals. But are we leaders? Are people inspired by what you do and how you do it or are they inspired by the mystery around what they think you do?

On July 31 the Daily published the following article which has generated comments from our readers.

Age old study resurfaces; Does paying higher wages decrease employee theft? According to a study conducted by University of Illinois and University of Southern California professors it does, "the reduction in theft that comes from a boost in wages would cover nearly 40 percent of the cost of paying employees more." According to the National Employment Law Project, the retail industry has the third largest share of low-wage workers in the country. Illustrating this point, more than 50 percent of New York City retail workers make less than $10 an hour, according to a report from the Retail Action Project. Please feel free to incorporate this study in your next WZ interview. (Source huffingtonpost.com)

Comments from Dolan Leveen

I do not believe there is any correlation between theft and the amount of money one makes. I believe this comes down to a personal decision based upon the culture in the organization, opportunity, and a perception that the individual feels the "corporation" will not miss, or that the corporation will not be harmed, by this activity.

Finding the right network into a company is critical if one expects to truly be able to compete in this job market. Going beyond the HR executives and finding the hiring managers and other decision makers and being able to communicate with them or have your network of colleagues communicate with them is important. Managing those communications is no easy task and ensuring that the information is handled correctly and expediently can be delicate.
