Since 2000, AutoZone has been the subject of over a dozen lawsuits related to false confessions, but National Retail Federation vice president Rich Mellor says that he does not think there are a high number of false confession cases in retail businesses. According to Mellor, he states that loss prevention departments know quite well that they must be careful when using methods of coercion, and that retailers do not normally talk to the press, leaving only one side of the story told.

All reports should include several elements, according to Richard T. Mellor, vice president of loss prevention at NRF. The most important element, Mellor advises, is a complete description of the physical loss, including:

Barcodes, RFID tags or symbology Physical data related to the loss, including store address, location within the store, time when the item was stolen, names of managers and associates on duty, and any witness statements Photos or video that were taken during the loss
When this information has been compiled, it may allow retailers to see that a specific product is being stolen from one store and returned in another for credit or cash, says Mellor. This helps retailers identify weaknesses in their in-store policies and processes. "It might even mean that there's more training that needs to be done on shoplifting awareness," he adds.

"Even more troubling is the fact that innocent consumers often suffer because companies have to look for ways to prevent and detect all types of crime and fraud in their stores, oftentimes resorting to shorter return windows and limitations on the types of products that can be returned," said Rich Mellor, vice president of loss prevention at the NRF.

The survey polled 60 executives at varying retail organizations and found that more than 96 percent of respondents lost revenue last year because of fraudulent returns on stolen items. Another 64 percent said their company fell victim to wardrobing - the return of non-defective merchandise - last year, while 45 percent said criminals provided fake receipts to get money back.
"Return fraud in any form is a serious threat, and we know that retailers have made significant strides in their fight against retail crime, and are continuing their efforts working with law enforcement to address this multi-billion dollar problem," Mellor said.

"Retailers face many threats; yet through a mix of technology, partnerships, preparation and training, retailers are able to ensure that they are able to respond to any threat," NRF Vice President Richard Mellor said.

"Retailers are committed to continuously improving their vigilance in order to stay ahead of those who wish to do harm to their businesses, their employees and their customers."
Mellor, a former police officer with 40 years of experience in public safety, testified before the House Homeland Security Committee hearing this afternoon on overseas attacks and the potential terrorist threat posed to "soft targets" in the United States such as shopping malls and movie theaters.
"While shopping malls have been categorized by some as 'soft targets,' it would have been hard to imagine or prepare for the devastating attack conducted by terrorists at the Westgate shopping mall in Kenya last month," Mellor said. "Collaboration and partnership between retailers, and law enforcement needs to remain strong and vigilant now more than ever."
NRF leads the retail industry's partnership with law enforcement, working with local, state and federal agencies on a series of loss prevention priorities, from developing "active shooter" guidelines with the Department of Homeland Security to responding to both man-made and natural emergencies. NRF has also advocated for legislation in Congress to make organized retail crime, which has been linked to funding of criminal and terrorist organizations overseas, a federal offense.
"Retailers have sophisticated protocols to deal with the threats from a wide range of situations, including organized retail crime (ORC) activities, robbery, active shooter incidents, impacts from natural disasters such as hurricanes or tornadoes as well as being a potential target for a terrorist attack," Mellor said.
