The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Investing in Security - Staff Training - Collaboration

How to Protect Against Rising Organized Retail Crime

By Scott Thomas - National Dir. of Sales, Signature Brands, Genetec

Organized retail crime (ORC) is a growing concern for retailers of all sizes. Groups of professional thieves are systematically targeting retail establishments to steal easily resold merchandise such as pharmaceuticals, groceries, diapers and beauty supplies. The value of each hit is intentionally kept small enough to avoid attracting attention from law enforcement, but add it all up and the cost to the industry is enormous.

Keeping Staff, Customers, and Bystanders Safe

In a growing number of jurisdictions, lawmakers are directing police officers to focus resources on violent crime. As a result, in many cities officers do not respond to calls about petty theft below a certain dollar amount. Criminals know this and see ORC theft as low-risk and high-reward, so more thieves are coordinating brazen thefts of goods from store shelves that can easily be resold online. Even though they don't expect much resistance, they are typically prepared to use force if necessary.

Many retailers are investing big-time in security, locking up valuable merchandise and hiring more security guards in stores. Some large chains are also developing sophisticated security operations centers with dedicated teams to gather evidence on ORC ringleaders so prosecutors can put together a stronger case. Retailers can also install practical physical security solutions and train staff to take meaningful action to reduce losses and help investigators.

Collaboration is Key

Large retail chains are already compiling and sharing data on ORC crime within their store networks. By next year, we'll begin see collaborative databases allowing independent businesses or chains to opt in to share alerts about suspicious vehicles that come in via ALPR. In isolation, each incident may be relatively small, but the impact adds up. Law enforcement, district attorneys and retail investigators need to band together to gather evidence and strengthen cases brought against the gang leaders who mobilize people to steal and resell products.

Forbes Highlights the $100B Shoplifting Crisis
Shoplifting Has Become A $100 Billion Problem For Retailers
Loss is an everyday part of the retail business - it's even budgeted for. But when sales are low, and shrink is getting higher, it becomes unsustainable for businesses to keep their doors open.

Recently, retailers have been battling unprecedented losses. Organized retail crime (ORC) is running rampant. A National Retail Security Survey (NRSS) shows that total shrink in 2021 reported by retailers is now almost a $100 billion problem.

Impact Of The Pandemic

88% of retailers surveyed said that the pandemic resulted in an increase in overall risk for their company. Retailers, on average, saw a 26.5% increase in organized retail crime incidents in 2021. Beyond theft of goods, eight in ten retailers surveyed reported that violence and aggression associated with incidents increased in the past year.

Violence in stores has been triggered by many factors, including labor shortages, payroll cuts causing less coverage on the sales floor, and issues surrounding the pandemic, such as mask mandates and employees trying to enforce COVID precautions.

Causes Of Shrink

According to the survey, 37% of retailer's shrink is due to external theft, followed by employee or internal theft at 28.5%, and process or control failures at 25.7%. The survey states that ORC groups target easily concealable, removable, available, valuable, enjoyable, and disposable items.

Mitigating Risks

Retailers are implementing many strategies to prevent loss and mitigate risks, such as hiring security staff, installing security cameras, requiring manager approvals for any discounts, and investing in radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems. RFID is used to identify items using radio waves and transmitting data from the RFID tag to a reader, which provides accurate, real-time tracking data of inventory. forbes.com

Retail Crime & Violence a Top Fear This Holiday Season
Retail crime ring busted as major stores 'fear' rising thefts heading into holiday shopping season

Major retailers are feeling the wrath of raging theft and crime across the nation ahead of the holiday shopping season.

In 2021, retail shrink, or thefts, cost the industry $94.5 billion in losses, up 4% year-over-year according to the latest data from the National Retail Federation. But that same report indicates  from the year prior.cases of organized retail crime rings - where criminals are hired to steal specific items which are typically resold online - have surged more than 26%

Drugstore companies like Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens have publicly cited shoplifting concerns, as well as retailers such as Kroger, Target and Best Buy.

"This is an industry-wide problem that is often driven by criminal networks, and we are collaborating with multiple stakeholders to find industry-wide solutions."

Target "strongly supports" legislation to "increase accountability and prevent criminals from selling stolen goods through online marketplaces," Fiddelke added.

John Catsimatidis, a billionaire New York City grocery chain owner, told FOX Business Monday he may cut back store hours to protect employees from violent behavior.

A bipartisan group of House lawmakers led by Colorado Republican Ken Buck proposed legislation in October that would form a new task force aimed at combating the nationwide surge in mob retail theft.

Buck previously told Fox News his bill, which he will introduce Friday, is a companion to Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley's Combating Organized Retail Crime Act and characterized it as a strong, bipartisan response to the nationwide crime wave. foxbusiness.com

LA Times: Retail Chains Discriminating With Security Measures
Noticing lots of security locks at drugstores? These L.A. stores lock up the most
While shopping for decongestant at Walmart in Burbank, Michelle Krider ran into a frustrating sign of the times: The nasal spray was on a shelf, locked beyond plexiglass.

It's a common problem as
store managers add more and more security measures.

Where once only expensive booze and electronics were locked up, now basic household items such as allergy medicine, shaving razors, infant formula and batteries are ending up in plexiglass cases or behind security devices. More merchandise also has been moved to displays behind cashier counters.

Getting those products requires the help of increasingly scarce retail workers.

Industry experts and retail companies say the
security measures are a response to rising retail crime.

"More people are stealing and stealing more," said Read Hayes, a criminologist at the University of Florida and director of the Loss Prevention Research Council, an industry research group studying retail theft.

But a Times survey - albeit unscientific - of Los Angeles area drugstores suggests it's not a straightforward equation, with stores in higher-income areas locking up fewer of the types of items that are most often stolen, even where the property crime rate is higher.

In so doing, critics say,
chains discriminate against lower-income neighborhoods where most of the residents are people of color, creating an additional burden for shoppers there.

Businesses 'Alarmed' by NYC Crime Surge
Midtown Manhattan crime surge leaves locals, landlords feeling uneasy
The busy Midtown South precinct, home to Times Square and packed with hordes of tourists, shoppers and commuters on any given day in New York City, has seen substantial jumps in grand larceny, burglaries and robberies in the first 10 months of 2022.

The spike has alarmed locals, who fear a return to a scary world of rising crime and diminishing quality of life.

"We're repeating the '80s," said Eddie Hassan, a local deli worker who lives just south of the Port Authority Bus Terminal. "We could talk about it for days, but it's the homeless and the drug dealers ... After the pandemic, it definitely got worse. People are wilding out here."

Local businesses routinely keep toothpaste, toiletries and deodorant under lock and key to keep the dispossessed from shoplifting, he said.

Kevin Ward, vice president for security with the 34th Street Partnership after more than three decades with the NYPD, agreed the crux of the problem remains the lack of police. According to the partnership, police staffing levels in Midtown South stood at 382 officers in 1994.

The current number stands at 256, according to data obtained by the Daily News - a decrease of more than 30%. And the most recent NYPD crime stats indicated a 66% hike in grand larcenies, a 55% rise in burglaries and a 49% jump in robberies.

Both Ward and landlord Kaufman cited some improvements under new Mayor Adams and his Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell, with each encouraging an increase in staffing as the key to turning things around.  nydailynews.com

Progressive DAs on the Run Amid Crime Surge
The revolt against woke DAs hits Philly's Larry Krasner, and will continue
The Pennsylvania state House of Representative has impeached woke Philly DA Larry Krasner. Krasner still faces a trial in the Senate, but the impeachment itself is an important blow struck for public safety.

It's also one more sign of rising anger across the nation over prosecutors who don't even pretend to want to fight crime.

Philly is in the midst of a crime crisis. It had 499 murders in 2020, 562 homicides in 2021 - a grim record - and 2022 is on pace to be even worse. The ugly numbers represent a staggering 57% increase over the same period pre-pandemic.

Krasner's soft-on-crime policies are the driving force. Murders have gone up every year Krasner has been in office. Other offenses - like shootings and carjackings - are also skyrocketing. He's gone so far as to create a special unit to make sure that 18- to 25-year-old offenders will get lenient treatment, not prison or other criminal punishments.

The House is well within its rights to fight back against a DA who refuses to do his job.

Across the country, the popular tide is turning against DAs who side with crooks against law-abiding citizens. From the successful recall effort that booted San Francisco's Chesa Boudin to the sadly defeated one mounted against LA's George Gascón, the public is getting sick and tired of when prosecutors act to destroy public safety in the name of "equity."

And no shock: One analysis puts more than 40% of all murders nationwide in places overseen by Soros-backed DAs. Until crime goes down, the public will not rest. Krasner and his ilk need to correct course or face the consequences. nypost.com

DA Ends Police of Not Prosecuting Theft of Necessary Items
Dallas County DA Rescinds Controversial Policy on Theft of Necessary Items

District attorney ends 2019, says avoiding prosecuting people who commit thefts out of desperation has had no impact on the crime rate

Newly re-elected Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot is ending a controversial policy enacted during his first term in office. Creuzot said in a statement received Monday that his office's policy of not prosecuting thefts of necessary items like food, diapers, or baby formula was being rescinded.

The Dallas County DA said revisiting the policy was a promise he made during his recent campaign and that after taking another look at the policy and the impact it made that it had no impact on crime.

The policy was put in place to avoid prosecuting people who commit thefts out of desperation due to hunger and poverty, he said.

'Through data analysis and conversations with community organizations, retailers, and independent loss prevention specialists, I found the policy had zero effect on crime in the county - positive or negative,' Creuzot said. 'I have come to the understanding that this policy is more aspirational than realistic and rather than helping those in need, I have watched that population, and primarily people of color, be blamed for a rise in crime.'

"Well, there's no statistical data because people didn't call," said Dallas Police Association President Mike Mata. "Your mom and pop store owners didn't even bother to call 911 because they knew nothing was going to happen."

"It was a policy that didn't need to be broadcasted...It sent a bad message to that criminal element that it almost gave them a pass to go ahead and commit a crime," he said. The policy change is effective immediately. nbcdfw.com

Artist Urges Fans to Shoplift from Guess Store
Banksy Tells Shoplifters To Steal From Guess, Says Company 'Helped Themselves To My Artwork'
The anonymous and unconventional graffiti artist Banksy posted an unusual request on Friday, asking any potential shoplifters among his fanbase to visit the Regent Street Guess store in London and "help themselves."

Banksy wrote the pro-shoplifting message on Instagram in response to some of his iconic designs being used in a Guess clothing collection. The collection features t-shirts and jackets imprinted with Banksy's "Thug for Life Bunny" displayed in front of a blown-up backdrop, which featured the artist's famous image of a looter throwing a bouquet of flowers. On Instagram, Banksy wrote:

"Attention all shoplifters. Please go to Guess on Regents Street. They've helped themselves to my artwork without asking, how can it be wrong for you to do the same to their clothes?"

It's unclear how serious Bansky's post really was, or if the artist was personally consulted about the clothing line before it went into production, but the offending Guess collection is in partnership with the company Brandalised, which reportedly has a license to commercialize and use Banksy's artwork on goods. forbes.com

Union Cries Retaliation for Being One of the First Unionized Stores
Starbucks to close another Seattle store, citing safety concerns
The Seattle-based company said that its attempts to address the safety concerns at the location were not effective.

"Unfortunately, despite several mitigating efforts, safety and security incidents at our Broadway and Denny store have continued to escalate," Andrew Trull, a Starbucks spokesperson, said.

In July, Starbucks announced the closure of five stores in Seattle and 16 nationwide citing safety concerns. One of the Seattle stores was also in Capitol Hill, on Olive Way. The Starbucks Workers Union countered the company's claim, saying it is a tactic to slow down unionization campaigns. seattletimes.com

'Tis the Season for Superspreader Events
Be wary of COVID transmission this holiday week, experts warn
With new coronavirus strains rapidly circulating, health officials are urging people to be vigilant during Thanksgiving holiday travel and gatherings. With evidence that the aggressive new subvariants are proving resistant to two prominent drug treatments used for immunocompromised COVID sufferers, UCSF is discontinuing use of those drugs.

The vaccine-evading omicron variants BQ.1 and BQ.1.1 are cementing their dominance of COVID cases in the U.S., according to the latest monitoring from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Together the two account for half of the cases, according to weekend data from CDC's genomic surveillance system that tracks the spread of the coronavirus, roughly splitting that 50% of all COVID cases between them.

The once- dominant B5 subvariant continues declining in prevalence, accounting for about a quarter of COVID cases, down from a third a week earlier. While BQ1 and BQ.1.1 spread rapidly and are adept at resisting vaccines, experts say they do not appear to cause more potent illness. sfchronicle.com

More Confusion Surrounding COVID Workplace Rules
Regulatory Update: California Employers Face COVID Rules Uncertainty
Due to a new state law and looming regulatory changes to existing rules, starting on Jan. 1, 2023, California's employers must adhere to a new version of the state's COVID-19 standards dictating how they handle coronavirus outbreaks among their workers.

To make matters confusing, a new state law was enacted last October that extends the general exposure notification requirement imposed on employers until Jan. 1, 2024. The earlier requirement had been slated to expire at the end of this year.

In a separate development, the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) earlier this year proposed a two-year "permanent" or "non-emergency" COVID standard that is intended to replace the Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS), an exhaustive list of requirements adopted by the state earlier in the pandemic. ehstoday.com

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

What It Takes to Put on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, by the Numbers

From the pounds of confetti used to the amount of hours put in, Macy's added up all of the elements that bring the parade to life as we countdown to the 96th celebration

2.5 Mile Route - The parade route twists and turns down the streets of Manhattan, starting on West 77th street and Central Park West and ends in front of the iconic Macy's flagship store on 34th street in Herald's Square.

Fun Fact: Two to three million people line the streets to get a glimpse of the action, according to NPR.

80 to 100 Balloon Handlers - Magic wouldn't be in the air if the balloons didn't fly high in the sky. We're not just talking about little latex balloons on a string. We're talking giant balloons typically guided by 80 to 100 uniformed handlers!

28 Floats - There may have only been 28 floats per year in recent years of the parade, but each one is comprised of hundreds of different set pieces and structural elements. The floats don't drive themselves, though, as they are towed by trucks driven by members of New York City's Theatrical Teamsters union, Local 817. The drivers are even supposed to wear jackets and ties for parade duty, according to Car and Driver.

4,500 Volunteers - The Thanksgiving Day Parade marks Macy's single biggest volunteer event of the year. More than 4,500 volunteers are credited for keeping the parade alive, from the handlers that guide the balloons along the route to the variety of themed clowns that bring the energy early in the morning.

50,000+ Hours of Labor - There's a tight deadline that must be met since the annual parade falls on Thanksgiving - which means that the Parade Studio team works around the clock, 365 days a year. The team consists of approximately 27 painters, carpenters, animators, sculptors, welders, scenic/costume designers, electricians and engineers. people.com

Lawsuits Coming?
Disabled Shoppers Struggle With Inaccessible Self-Checkouts

Blind people, wheelchair users and others say the design of typical self-service machines prevents them from shopping independently

Stores' self-checkout machines can annoy shoppers with error messages about unexpected items in the bagging area and other hiccups. But for some disabled people, they are often unusable.

Blind people can have trouble navigating the touchscreens. Deaf people might not be able to troubleshoot on kiosks that connect to a customer-service worker located somewhere else. And wheelchair users sometimes can't reach or see the screens, or fit their chairs comfortably in the space allocated to each checkout.

The problem is spreading as companies continue to install self-service transaction machines around the world, some disabled people and disability-rights activists say. It also has the potential to put the brakes on companies' efforts to automate much of the shopping experience in the name of speed and cost savings, as lawyers and lawmakers begin to scrutinize accessibility in a retail context.

In the U.S., 30% of grocery transactions were completed using self-checkout in 2021, up from 18% in 2018, according to research from FMI. wsj.com

Congress Accuses Walmart of Discrimination
Walmart fired Black hourly employees twice as often as their white coworkers at the pandemic's start, congressional report says

Congressional report finds Walmart laid off double the amount of Black workers during the pandemic.

During the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Black hourly employees at Walmart were fired nearly twice as often compared to their white colleagues, according to a recent congressional report. The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis examined staffing inequities at 12 large companies between 2019 and 2021.

"Walmart had some of the largest racial inequities of the surveyed companies when it came to employment outcomes," the report says. Other companies reviewed in the report included Walt Disney, Oracle, and Chevron.

The findings come as Walmart, the country's largest private employer, has made a big push to improve racial diversity in both its store-level and managerial ranks.

During the summer of 2020, when thousands of protesters took to the streets following the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, Walmart pledged to do more to address systematic racism - including a $100 million donation to establish a new center on racial equity.

As of July 29 this year, Black workers comprised roughly 21% of Walmart's 1.6 million US workforce, according to the Walmart's culture, equity, diversity, and inclusion 2022 mid-year report.

The congressional report found that while Black salaried workers were promoted at a higher rate than white salaried workers (36.2% to 28.0%), Black hourly workers were promoted at a lower rate than white hourly workers (8.7% to 11.1%). businessinsider.com

Balancing Easy Returns & Skyrocketing Costs
The Smartest Ways for Companies to Manage Product Returns

Customer returns are way up over the past couple of years. How can companies make it easy for customers, without seeing their costs skyrocket?

From 2019 to last year, the rate of returns in the U.S. more than doubled to some 16.6% of retail sales-meaning $761 billion of goods were returned in 2021, according to the National Retail Federation and Appriss Retail. At the same time, returns are becoming more costly, with shipping and labor costs rising.

So companies have every reason to make returns more difficult. Except for one thing: the consumer.

"Customers value the ability to return something so much that it might change their willingness to purchase, and it might affect... future engagement with the company," says Andrew Petersen, associate professor of marketing at Pennsylvania State University. "There's an optimal balance between what product returns can do for you from a customer perspective, and then what they cost you from an economic perspective."

So the goal for companies is a tricky one: How do you have return policies that are flexible enough to keep customers, but not so costly that companies lose money? And even better, is there a way to use the return experience to actually increase sales rather than just be a drain on company results?

Make it easy
Let customers return things at different places
Stop requiring printed return labels and boxes for online returns
One size doesn't fit all
Let customers keep the item-sometimes
Use technology to help root out fraud
Use returns data to improve the product lineup and buying experience wsj.com

NRF Calls on Congress to Take Action to Avert a Catastrophic Rail Strike
"Millions of hardworking Americans rely on the freight rail system for their jobs and the economic security of our country. A nationwide rail strike during the peak holiday season will be devastating for American businesses, consumers and the U.S. economy.

"American businesses and families are already facing increased prices due to persistent inflation, and a rail strike will create greater inflationary pressures and will threaten business resiliency. Congress must intervene immediately to avoid a rail strike and a catastrophic shutdown of the freight rail system.

"Smooth and stable operations on the rails is absolutely crucial this holiday season and should not be derailed by a rejection of the contract. Eight of the 12 unions have ratified the agreement, while four have rejected it. The parties must work out the issues and ratify the contract without a disruption to the system. If not, Congress must step in to prevent a strike before the end of the cooling off period on December 8."

According to a report from the Association of American Railroads, a nationwide rail shutdown could halt nearly 7,000 freight trains and cost more than $2 billion a day. nrf.com

More Online Shopping Means Greater Cybersecurity Risks
Holiday Shopping Online: Safety on Black Friday, Cyber Monday

What are the latest online security tips as we head into another holiday season? What's the best cyber advice, and what shopping trends should you watch out for?

Two years ago, as we were heading into the first holiday season in a century amid a global pandemic, everything about shopping changed. At that time, I wrote a blog that proclaimed, "COVID-19 Turning Black Friday into 'Cyber November.'" Here's an excerpt from the way we were:

"Move over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, because our global pandemic is changing our new normal - again. In 2020, holiday shopping is more virtual than ever, with deals coming earlier in November.

"While experts are predicting more online shopping than ever before between now and the end of the year, at the same time, the pandemic has driven more working from home and more cyberthreats in the public and private sectors."

Tried and Tested - using websites that are globally known, such as Argos, Amazon and Curry's, is a good way to avoid any nasty surprises. Even if it is a couple of pounds more, it is worth knowing where your money is going and that your purchase will be tracked and delivered.

Check for the padlock icon when at the checkout. Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) are used to ensure data is encrypted before being transmitted across the web. It is also an indication that an organization has been verified. Keep an eye out for HTTPS in the address bar rather than HTTP, as this highlights that a site uses SSL.

Use antivirus software that will warn you of potentially dangerous sites in search results as well. Look for suspicious emails, as well as suspicious calls and text messages. Never click on a link you are unsure of, and never provide personal information over the phone. govtech.com

FBI Trying to Catch Up with Ransomware 'Geek Squad'
Ransomware: Did Law Enforcement Lose Ground Early On?

Renee Dudley Says FBI Culture Used to Alienate Those With Cyber Skills

A decade ago, ransomware was one of the internet's petty street crimes. But it has now evolved into a major threat to enterprises and sometimes, a national security concern.

Did the FBI take ransomware as seriously as it should have in the early days? Renee Dudley, a technology reporter with ProPublica, says it didn't.

The reason traces back to a culture at the agency that didn't have much respect for people with cyber skills, calling them the "geek squad." Cyber skills were undervalued and at odds with an often macho culture at the agency, she says.

As a result, agents with cyber skills "were fleeing the bureau," says Dudley, the co-author of "The Ransomware Hunting Team," a recently released book about a band of technical experts who tirelessly work to find technical mistakes in ransomware to help victims unlock files. "Retention for agents in the cyber division was not good, she says.

Dudley says the agency these days takes ransomware very seriously, and it has been working to change its culture to attract people with the digital skills the agency needs. In this audio interview with Information Security Media group, Dudley also discusses:

How the Netherlands uses "off-center" targeting to disrupt cybercrime and ransomware gangs;
If banning ransom payments is a viable legislative option to fight ransomware;
If anti-ransomware plans by governments will affect cybercriminal gangs. govinfosecurity.com

Government Sounds the Alarm Over Ransomware
Decoding the government's dire ransomware warnings

Despite the government's best efforts, squashing ransomware still remains one of U.S. cyber officials' toughest tasks.

During public appearances at the Aspen Cyber Summit earlier this week, government officials gave a rare glimpse into just how difficult ransomware is to fight. "We've only seen the problem continue to get worse, even with all of the efforts we've made," said Paul Abbate, deputy director of the FBI, during the summit.

"Ransomware continues to happen at unacceptable levels," said Rob Silvers, the Department of Homeland Security's under secretary for strategy, policy and plans, at the event. "We see enough attempted intrusion, and successful intrusions, every day that we're not letting our guard down even a little bit."

The U.S. government has thrown all of its resources at the ransomware problem since an attack forced the Colonial Pipeline to shut down last year. But that still isn't enough to deter ransomware criminals.

In recent months, most government officials have either focused their public remarks about ransomware on the work they're doing to fight ransomware or on the success those efforts have had. The White House hosted a group of 36 other governments earlier this month to discuss their counter-ransomware efforts. axios.com

Remote Work's Ongoing Cybersecurity Impact
How remote working impacts security incident reporting

Security teams must update their security incident reporting policies and processes to account for remote work or risk exposure to increased threats.

AdvertisementThe ability for employees to work remotely comes with many benefits, from better work-life balance to lower expenses to higher productivity. But a widely dispersed workforce can pose some great challenges for security teams, not least of which is how remote work affects security incident reporting. With companies growing more accustomed to implementing security technologies and processes better attuned to mass remote working, incident reporting has the potential to become a major stumbling block.

Along with introducing and maintaining such protocols as remote-appropriate identity access and authorization practices, security teams must also review and adjust their reporting policies to reflect the nature of remote work or expose their organizations to significant security threats.

Having a remote workforce can create an overload of security incidents simply due to the diversity of networks created by a multitude of user home or remote setups, as opposed to an office environment whereby everyone is on the same network, Forrester Senior Analyst Paddy Harrington tells CSO. "It's one thing managing 12 networks because you have 12 offices, but if you have 1000 employees, 900 of which are remote, you have 912 networks to be concerned with. This means that incidents, including those that are reported, are going to vary a great deal more because everybody's home network is different." And that can lead to alert fatigue for security teams if even just a fraction of incidents are reported, Harrington says. csoonline.com

Avoid Holiday Phishing Scams

Make sure you're shopping smart this holiday season by with these quick tips:

Shop only through trusted sources. Check to see if a website is encrypted with SSL by looking for a closed padlock logo in your web browser's address bar or if the URL begins with https:// (instead of http://).

Do not provide private information, such as login credentials or credit card information, via email. Trusted retailers and banks will never ask customers to email them this information.

Shop with your credit card instead of your debit card. If you fall victim to credit card fraud, you can more easily file a claim to dispute the charges. With your debit card, you might just lose your money and never get it back




Amazon Told to Stop Firing Union Organizers
Federal Judge Orders Amazon to Stop Firing People for Organizing

A cease-and-desist order filed against the company demands it stop retaliating against unionizing workers.

A federal judge filed a cease-and-desist order against Amazon on Friday, demanding that the company stop firing its employees for participating in union organizing.

The court order, filed in the Eastern District of New York by District Judge Diana Gujarati, demands that Amazon cease and desist from "discharging employees because they engaged in protected concerted activity" and "in any like or related manner interfering with, restraining, or coercing employees in the exercise of the rights guaranteed to them by Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act."

The order was a response to a petition filed by Gerald Bryson, a former Amazon employee who in 2020 was fired for protesting the company's lack of safety protocols regarding COVID-19. Bryson worked at JFK8, the company's Staten Island warehouse which has since become famous as the first Amazon facility to successfully unionize, earlier this year. He had participated in multiple protests alongside then-worker Christian Smalls, who is now the president of the Amazon Labor Union.

At the time, the National Labor Relations Board found that Amazon had illegally retaliated against Bryson by terminating him, and demanded that it reinstate him. Judge Gujarati's order denied Bryson's request to get his job back because, it claimed, it would not have a significant effect on workers' willingness to organize.

"This is of huge significance," said Seth Goldstein, a lawyer for the ALU. "This is a national cease-and-desist order. That means that wherever in the country they violate it, theoretically the National Labor Relations Board can immediately seek a Contempt of Court order. A federal judge is not happy when a party violates their rule-there can be sanctions of all types."  vice.com

According to ACI Commerce, retailers can look forward to growth in both online sales and fraud attempts this holiday season.

Retailers can look forward to growth in both online sales and fraud attempts this holiday season.

According to analysis of millions of e-commerce transactions conducted by digital payments software provider ACI Commerce, transaction volume is expected to rise expected to rise 15% during the October to December 2022 holiday shopping season.

ACI says that these spending predictions reflect that consumer optimism is holding strong, despite inflationary pressures and limited inventory. The 2022 forecast is slightly ahead of ACI's 2021 holiday e-commerce forecast of 14% growth in transactions.

Fraudsters targeting high-value items

According to ACI data, the volume of "friendly" (chargeback-related) fraud increased 22% and the average transaction value grew 39% from January through September 2022, when compared to the same period in 2021. The data also shows that account takeover fraud doubled in the same timeframe compared to 2021.

"We're seeing a significant increase in the average ticket value of friendly fraud, indicating that fraudsters are targeting high-value items like electronics and travel," said Erika Dietrich, head of fraud management and payments analytics, ACI Worldwide. "We expect this trend to continue into the 2022 holiday season and encourage merchants and shoppers to be vigilant. Orchestration between merchants' fraud prevention and payment strategies will be crucial to protect all entry points and adapt to changing fraud behaviors and payment channels at the same time." drugstorenews.com

Be On Alert This Coming Black Friday
Beware Online Shopping Scams This Holiday Season!
Nearly 100 million Americans have fallen victim to online shopping scams, it was revealed today, as 112 million US shoppers prepare to embark on the biggest bargain hunts of the year1.

Research from cybersecurity company NordVPN can reveal that 37% of Americans have been scammed while shopping online - equivalent to 95.6 million people.

With Black Friday less than a week away, cyber scammers have their sights on the four in five Americans who might take part in the event - 43.2% of US shoppers say they'll head online for Cyber Monday, Black Friday or the Christmas sales, with a further 37.7% still to decide.

The task of online criminals is being made easier by the millions of US consumers prepared to offer up a treasure trove of personal information in exchange for an extra markdown or freebie - and those who have already been scammed are at the front of the queue.

One in ten (10.5%) would hand over their credit card details, 7.6% would give their social security number and one in eight (12.2%) would reveal where they worked. A further 7%would even reveal their children's names for the chance to bag an extra bargain. Those people who were willing to disclose their social security number were nearly TWICE as likely to have been scammed.

All told, 88.6% of scam victims are still willing to hand over at least some personal data to land a bonus gift, discount or free service.

The study also revealed that 18.8% of Americans consider the security of websites their lowest priority when shopping online. By comparison, price was the biggest driver, with 30.1% of people choosing it as their chief concern. sanangelolive.com

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

New clues in Brink's heist mystery? Video shows 'suspicious' men at jewelry show
The man in dark jeans and a black windbreaker sat on a folding chair near the back of the San Mateo County Event Center. He sported an earpiece and wore a blue surgical mask that obscured much of his face. His presence may have gone unnoticed if not for the event that had just taken place there: the International Gem and Jewelry Show. It was a little after 5 p.m. on July 10, and the expo had ended. Dozens of exhibitors were packing up the contents of their glass showcases, which sparkled with jewelry worth tens of millions of dollars. At that point in the day, only authorized personnel were allowed inside the exhibition hall, so the man drew the suspicions of Brandy Swanson, the show's manager and a self-professed "mama bear" who looks out for the event's vendors.

The man, she said, was watching the jewelers. Swanson said she confronted him, shouting, "Get up. Get out of here. What are you doing?" He told Swanson he didn't speak English, but she was undeterred. "A security guard came up, and I said, 'You follow him out of the front door,'" Swanson said. Once outside the event center, the man in the windbreaker was joined by another man who wore a matching surgical mask. A show staffer took photographs of the men and the silver Honda Civic they drove off in, Swanson said.
The incident, and the appearance of other suspicious men in and around the event center that day, would take on increased significance just hours later - when a Brink's big rig transporting the wares of jewelers who'd participated in the show was burgled at a Grapevine truck stop. The July 11 theft occurred while the 18-wheeler paused at the Flying J Travel Center in Lebec around 2 a.m. Thieves stole 22 bags of jewelry that, in all, could be worth about $100 million, though the value of the haul is in dispute.

The criminals pulled off the heist despite, Swanson said, exhibitors and Brink's representatives having been warned of the troubling activity at the show. And she, for one, sees a possible connection. latimes.com

Tampa, FL: Burger King manager used headset to alert drive-thru customer to call 911 during robbery
A manager at a Burger King in Tampa used her quick thinking to alert a customer in the drive-thru line to call 911 during a robbery, police report. Just after 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, police said a man entered a Burger King nearby West De Leon Sreet and South Dale Mabry Highway "demanding free food from the employees." The employees reportedly refused his demand. That's when surveillance video released by Tampa Police Department shows the man appearing to yell at the cashier counter before pulling out a set of pliers from his pocket and walking toward them. The man banged the pliers on the counter, struck a cash register and knocked it over before leaping over the counter "where he continued to making threats," police said. That's when the manager "discreetly" let a drive-thru customer know through her radio headset that they were in danger and to call 911. The manager was also forced to give the man food. Police quickly arrived at the fast-food eatery and located the robber eating his food in the men's restroom. He's been identified as 50-year-old Hubert Credit, Jr. Officers ordered Credit to exit the stall, he complied and was taken into custody, Tampa police said. He was charged with robbery with a deadly weapon. There were no reported injuries during the robbery, authorities say.  wtsp.com
