E-Commerce Fraud Is on the Rise, Leaving Retailers Vulnerable as They Embrace Selling Online

Click here to read the full article.

The surge in online purchases has also resulted in a greater need for e-commerce fraud prevention, according to a number of industry experts. With many retailers and brands selling online for the first time, or dealing with unprecedented volumes of online orders, they are increasingly vulnerable to cybercrime, which could cause significant damage to their bottom lines.

“Several factors are making it harder for risk teams to spot fraudulent behavior during the pandemic, including changing consumer behavior,” said Jason Cheung, product manager of fraud at Digital River Americas, a global commerce solution. “Customers are shopping online more frequently and at different times, which can trigger false positives within risk models.”

Best cookie cutters and where to buy them, according to experts

Jurassic Dinosaur Cookie Cutters and Dinosaur Stampers

The world of cookie cutters has evolved with geek culture. You can sculpt intricate dinosaur skeletons with a cutter and stamper set, make dessert in a galaxy far, far away with a Star Wars 8-piece cookie cutter set and bake an adorable tribute to Pusheen.

While cookie cutters with lots of details may look good, getting dough into and out of tiny spaces can prove frustrating. Simple geometric shapes are often more forgiving. “When cookie cutters are too intricate, the probability that your sugar cookie dough will hold its shape is unlikely, unless you have some magical cookie dough,” says McKenney. “Simple cutters are best. They are easy to decorate and that’s where you can make them come to life a bit.”

Former eBay employees harassed couple who wrote critical newsletter articles, prosecutors say

Six former members of eBay’s global security team have been charged by the FBI and federal prosecutors in Boston with cyberstalking as part of an effort to “stifle” the publishers of an online newsletter about the online auction company.

Prosecutors said the plan was two-fold. First, the eBay members allegedly harassed the couple who published the newsletter with online deliveries at all times of the day and night and sent threatening messages. Then, the eBay team would contact the couple so they could proclaim that eBay noticed the harassment and offered to help them get out of the threatening environment eBay itself created.

Prosecutors called this the “White Knight Strategy.”

“In essence, the plan was for eBay to arrive to ‘rescue’ the Victims from the very harassment that the defendants and their co-conspirators had themselves created in order to earn the Victims’ good will,” the prosecutors wrote in criminal information

There’s nothing better than pulling a PlayStation VR headset from its packaging, putting it on your head for the first time, and diving into the wonderful worlds that only virtual reality can deliver. Virtual reality is intense, surreal, and unlike anything we’ve seen in video games before.
