Oxygen show 'Murdered by Morning' profiles 2013 case of Regional LP Manager who
murdered a beloved Toys 'R' Us store manager in Hamburg, NY
Bernard Grucza had been authorities' "go-to" guy for help on the investigation,
until DNA evidence connected him to the fatal stabbing of Larry Wells
Local journalist Matt Chandler covered crime in Erie County, New York for 20
years, but when it came to the June 2013 murder of Hamburg Toys “R” Us manager
Larry Wells, he’d never written about a victim who was so “universally loved,”
Wells, 35, was stabbed to death in the wee hours of June 29 in the toy store’s
office while his co-workers stocked merchandise. The investigation took months
as authorities wrestled with the question: Who would want to hurt the well-liked
father and co-worker who fostered a family-like atmosphere among the store’s
Authorities, who called the case a “true whodunnit,” retraced the 109-day
investigation on “Murdered by Morning” on Oxygen.

Widespread BOPUS Fraud
Chargebacks911 Warns Consumer Fraud Threatens Retailers’ BOPUS Boom
Rather than shopping online and waiting for a delivery to arrive, increasing
numbers of consumers opt to go to one of the seller’s bricks-and-mortar
locations and pick up the purchase themselves. Nearly 67% of U.S. shoppers have
now used buy online, pickup in store (BOPUS); 90% of retailers say that
they plan to be offering it by 2021, and it is estimated that 10% of all sales
will be fulfilled through BOPUS by 2025.
Chargebacks911, a leading dispute mitigation and loss prevention firm, cautions
that while BOPUS offers omnichannel retailers an effective way to compete with
online merchants and marketplaces, an uptick in consumer fraud could hamper its
Widespread BOPUS fraud first emerged in the restaurant sector,
where delivery and pickup revenues are growing at more than three times the rate
of on-premises sales, and where more than half of delivery or pickup orders come
directly through the restaurant’s app or website.
This growth has been accompanied by a
sharp increase in chargebacks; while in
2013 there was virtually no chargeback activity in restaurants, by 2018, 28% of
surveyed restaurateurs reported chargeback-to-transaction ratios of 0.5% to
1.0%, and 10% had chargeback ratios in excess of 1.0%.

Clearview AI Facial Recognition Use by Law Enforcement Banned in Toronto - New

'Indiscriminate Scraping Of Internet Images

Toronto police have been ordered by Chief Mark Saunders to stop using the

Lumber Liquidators Rebranding After China Scandal - SEC Fraud Charges
& Cyber Attack
Never Recovered From 2015 China Formaldehyde
While Lumber Liquidators is already in the midst of a rebranding, a recent
stock downgrade and corresponding slide in share price have led analysts to
suggest the affordable flooring retailer ditch its name and begin undertaking a
more drastic transformation strategy, according to an article on MarketWatch.
Intensified competition from both direct competitors in flooring and adjacent
categories like home improvement are part of the reason for the chain’s current
woes. Experts, however, argue the bigger problem is that the chain never bounced
back from a massive wave of bad press in 2015 surrounding a scandal that
branded the company’s product a public health threat.
Consumer skepticism over the chain began with a scathing 2015 expose on “60
Minutes”, which accused Lumber Liquidators of selling Chinese-made
laminate flooring that contained formaldehyde in levels that exceeded
California’s CARB 2 standard for toxicity by some order of magnitude.
In March of 2019, Lumber Liquidators was charged with fraud by the Securities
and Exchange Commission (SEC) over statements made in response to the “60
Minutes” segment. The chain told the public that it had conducted third-party
testing, which demonstrated that its suppliers complied with formaldehyde
emissions standards. In fact, the chain knew its largest supplier had failed
such third-party tests.
The retailer also experienced a recent cybersecurity incident consisting of a
malware attack, resulting in an estimated $6 million to $8 million in
damages, according to its third-quarter financial report.
Coronavirus Has Customs Agents on Alert
Doral, FL: US Customs agents target counterfeit goods with mandatory screening
They may look like Nike shoes, Gucci purses and Super Bowl rings, but the fakes
were among the numerous counterfeit items confiscated from China at the U.S.
Customs and Border Protection International Mail Facility in Doral, Florida.
U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., who has called for increased screenings and
inspections for goods coming in from China, was given a tour of the facility
following the big bust.
A major fear with products seized from
China is stopping the spread of deadly diseases, including the coronavirus.
“We know with the growing threat of the Chinese
coronavirus that we have to be more vigilant and diligent on this,” said Scott.

Cybersecurity: the SEC Provides Guidance on Well-Known
& Emerging Best Practices
Detailed Best Practice List
Including Data Loss Prevention
At the end of January, the U.S. Securities and Exchange’s Office of Compliance
Inspections and Examinations (OCIE) released its “Observations
on Cybersecurity and Resiliency Practices” (Observations). While any
guidance on cybersecurity from the SEC — one of the most active federal
regulators of cybersecurity and data privacy disclosure and compliance — is
welcome, the observations may not surprise those closely following privacy and
cyber developments or the examinations and settlements pursued by the SEC and
other regulators, such as the Federal Trade Commission.
The Observations serve as a good reminder and road map for leaders in corporate
governance, compliance, law departments and technology of the best practices for
both prophylactic cybersecurity and responsiveness during and after a breach. As
director of OCIE noted, the Observations are intended to foster and
highlight observable best practices:

Attacked by Ransomware, Many Companies Opt to Pay Up
The demanded ransom is often a moderate amount that would pale in comparison to
the recovery and reputational costs for a company that refuses to pay.
To a little-noticed but alarming degree, so-called "ransomware" attacks
on governments, businesses, and other entities jumped last year. In all, they
rose 41% from 2018 to 2019 to more than 205,000 globally, according to newly
Although not all firms pay, the security firm Coveware estimates the average
payout for those that did was about $85,000 during last year's fourth
quarter, and more than $190,000 in December.
Organizations have more to lose financially from the inability to conduct
business than they do from just paying the ransom. Hackers know they can make a
quick buck with
Experts suspect that the actual number of ransomware attacks is much higher than
the reported number, citing reasons ranging from fear of job loss, investor
withdrawal, and reputational damage.
97% of IT Leaders Say Insider Data Breaches are a Major Concern
75% Believe Employees Put Data at Risk Intentionally
Egress announced the results of its second Global Insider Data Breach survey,
which looks at the causes, frequency and implications of internal security
breach incidents and the perspectives of IT leaders and employees about data
risk, responsibility and ownership. More than 500 IT leaders and 5000
employees were surveyed across the UK, US and Benelux regions.
In addition, 78 percent think employees have put data at risk accidentally in
the past 12 months and 75 percent think employees have put data at risk
intentionally. When asked about the implications of these breaches, 41
percent say financial damage would be the area of greatest impact, reflecting
the evolution and implementation of more stringent data privacy regulations like
the California Consumer Privacy Act.
Asked what traditional security tools they have in place to mitigate insider
breach risk, just half of IT leaders said they are using anti-virus software to
combat phishing attacks, 48 percent are using email encryption and 47 percent
provide secure collaboration tools. More than half (58 percent) say employee
reporting is more likely than any breach detection system to alert them to an
insider data breach.
Customer-facing services and apps were targets of DDoS attacks
at 2/3 enterprises
NETSCOUT Threat Intelligence saw 8.4 million Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
attacks last year alone: 23,000 attacks per day, 16 every minute. DDoS
attacks have grown in frequency each year for the past five years, while
attackers continue to unleash increasingly sophisticated attacks.
NETSCOUT, in its
Threat Intelligence Report, found customer-facing services and applications
were targets of DDoS attacks at two-thirds of enterprises. Customers can act as
conduits for attacks: adversaries deployed a novel technique that used attacks
on client services to access core services at well-protected targets. APT groups
are bumping up mobile malware use, while DDoS attacks on mobile networks jumped
64 percent in the second half of 2019. Cyber criminals widely weaponized seven
new or increasingly popular DDoS attack vectors in 2019 while adding new
techniques to existing methods.
The Trouble with Free and Open Source Software
A wide-ranging study by researchers at the Linux Foundation and the Laboratory
for Innovation Science at Harvard has yielded vital new information on the most
widely used free and open source software (FOSS) within enterprises — and
potential security risks related to that use.
The researchers found that a lack of a standardized naming scheme for FOSS
components has made it hard for organizations and other stakeholders to quickly
and precisely identify questionable or vulnerable components.
They also discovered that accounts belonging to developers contributing most
actively to some of the most widely deployed open source software need to be
secured much better. A third finding was that legacy packages within the open
source space are becoming riskier by the day, just like any other older hardware
or software technology.

Are Customers 'Conduits for Attacks'?
Is fashion kingpin Peter Nygard the Canadian Jeffrey Epstein?
Nygard claims sex trafficking allegations are rooted in 'property dispute'
Canadian fashion kingpin has fallen into sordid company amid explosive
allegations he sexually assaulted a slew of underage women — including three
14-year-olds. Ten unidentified women have filed a class-action lawsuit
accusing Nygard, 77, of rape and sex trafficking.
The allegations are eerily similar to the twisted web woven by hedge fund
pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Whispers about the Finnish-born designer’s sexual
predilections have been floating around for decades but little has stuck.
“Nygard lured and enticed young, impressionable, and often impoverished children
and women with cash payments and false promises of lucrative modelling
opportunities in order to assault, rape, and sodomize them. When the victims
were not swayed by promises, many were drugged to force compliance with Nygard’s
sexual desires,” the plaintiffs said in a press release.
Nygard claims the charges are rooted in a bitter property dispute between
Nygard and his former hedge fund billionaire neighbour Louis Bacon.
More than 100 witnesses, dozens of victims come forward in Nygard class action
lawsuit, lawyers say
than 100 people, including dozens of victims, have come forward with
information since a class action suit alleging rape, sexual assault and human
trafficking against Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard was filed last week
according to lawyers representing alleged victims.
“Since filing a rape and sex trafficking class action lawsuit last week … we
have received information from over 100 witnesses, including dozens of
victims, who have come forward with additional evidence relating to alleged
rape and sexual abuse,” said lawyers Greg Gutzler and Lisa Haba Tuesday, who are
representing the alleged victims in the suit.
Coronavirus just beginning to hurt Canadian economy, experts say
Losses could 'easily double' those of the 2003 SARS outbreak
Business, retail and tourism experts say the new coronavirus has begun to
hurt businesses in Canada but its full effects will be evident in the coming
months. Canadian companies that rely on China for processing small
components, for raw materials or for tourist dollars will all feel the effects
of the virus called COVID-19.
"The outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has so far had a minimal effect on
both the Canadian and Ontario economies. However, given the length of supply
chain cycles, we may not see the full impact of the disruption for some months,"
'Without it, you just have a bunch of scraps'
Global supply chains mean Canadian products with components made in China may
not make it to store shelves, he said.
"What I see happening to Canadian businesses is that they are depending on
buying ingredients and raw materials from China, or having their raw
materials put together, or in some cases sewn together in China, where maybe
very small components in a process come from China, or are processed in China,
but without it, you just have a bunch of scraps," Danahy said.
'Losses could easily double those of 2003'
In an article for The Conversation, an independent source of news from
the academic community, Joppe writes: "Depending on how long the restrictions
and warnings are in place, losses could easily double those of 2003. The pain
will be felt in every industry as tourism's supply chain involves everything
from agriculture and fishing to banking and insurance.

Robberies at cell phone retailers becoming more frequent, police say
Calgary police say consumers should be
cautious when purchasing merchandise online
Calgary police are warning consumers to keep their eyes peeled when perusing
online marketplaces and classified websites after a rash of recent cell phone
thefts from local retailers.
"We do have ongoing robberies for retail cell phone stores or electronic stores
where offenders are then stealing these phones and then reselling them to
victimized people through the online marketplace," said Staff Sgt. Mark
England with Calgary police.
Such thefts have taken their toll on Geoff D'arcy, who has run a cell phone
repair business for more than a decade. In the past four years, his shop has
been broken into four times.
Efforts to inform the public about stolen phones are important, D'arcy said, but
"long overdue." "I think it's really important. I think a lot of people do get
caught buying stolen phones," he said. "We have people in here, probably daily,
that have bought a cheap phone online and it turns out it's stolen, so it can't

FBI Releases 2019 Internet Crime Report
According to data released by the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) in
its 2019 Internet Crime Report. The last calendar year saw both the
highest number of complaints and the highest dollar losses reported since
the center was established in May 2000.
IC3 received 467,361 complaints in 2019—an average of nearly 1,300 every day—and
recorded more than $3.5 billion in losses to individual and business victims.
The most frequently reported complaints were phishing and similar ploys,
non-payment/non-delivery scams, and extortion. The most financially costly
business email compromise, romance or confidence fraud, and spoofing, or
mimicking the account of a person or vendor known to the victim to gather
personal or financial information.
Donna Gregory, the chief of IC3, said that in 2019 the center didn’t see an
uptick in new types of fraud but rather saw criminals deploying new tactics and
techniques to carry out existing scams.
Shifts in Business Email Compromise
Business email compromise (BEC), or email account compromise, has been a major
concern for years. In 2019, IC3 recorded 23,775 complaints about BEC, which
resulted in more than $1.7 billion in losses.
In the last year, IC3 reported seeing an increase in the number of BEC
complaints related to the diversion of payroll funds. “In this type of
scheme, a company’s human resources or payroll department receives an email
appearing to be from an employee requesting to update their direct deposit
information for the current pay period,”

Arizona Verizon Robberies|
The leader of a crew that committed 13 robberies of Verizon stores in Southern
California and Arizona was sentenced Tuesday to more than 22 years in prison,
the U.S. attorney’s office said. Zachary David Wade, 42, was also ordered to
pay $360,236 in restitution. Wade pleaded guilty last year to multiple
counts including brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
The U.S. attorney’s office said Wade determined which stores would be robbed,
instructed co-conspirators on how to commit the robberies and provided equipment
including loaded guns. The robberies netted thousands of dollars worth of
smartphones and other merchandise that Wade sold to a buyer in California. He
was arrested while trying to sell stolen goods the day after a Jan. 31, 2018,
robbery of a Verizon store in Tucson, Arizona. Eight co-defendants have
pleaded guilty to felonies.

Wheaton, IL: 3 accused of stealing from stores in DuPage, crashing into Chicago
Three people are accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of merchandise
from stores in Wheaton and Elmhurst and then crashing into a Chicago police car
while trying to escape. Victor Williams, 30, Joshlyn Allen, 19, and Emiaya
Shannon, 22, are charged with felony burglary and retail theft. Prosecutors also
have asked that Shannon's probation on a November 2018 retail theft case out of
Naperville, and a December 2018 retail theft case out of Willowbrook, be
revoked. In the Willowbrook case, she was charged with stealing more than $4,600
of items, including perfume, from an Ulta store. In Naperville, she was charged
with stealing items from an Ulta store.
Shannon and Allen also are wanted in Jackson County, Missouri, for failure to
appear for January court dates related to October 2019 theft charges against
them. Authorities said the trio entered the Ulta beauty store at Danada
Square in Wheaton around 4:50 p.m. Saturday and stole $4,000 worth of
merchandise. They then went to the Kohl's on S. Route 83 in Elmhurst and took
$6,000 worth of items, including Nike- and Adidas-brand clothing, reports
said. Elmhurst police tried to stop them in the parking lot, but Williams drove
into oncoming traffic, authorities said. Police chased them by car and
helicopter until the defendants' car crashed into a Chicago police squad car.
The three are next due in court March 16.

The simplest things can always have the biggest impacts. From having a firm hand
shake, turning off your cell, not chewing gum, shining your shoes, cleaning your
briefcase, having multiple copies of your resumes, getting business cards from
everyone you interview with, taking the water they offer, stopping by the
facilities merely to clear your head, making direct eye contact, and making sure
you wear a smile and you're upbeat with everyone you meet. These are the basics
of every successful interview. And it seems that many great executives lose
opportunities because they don't practice the basics.
