"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.

The tougher state laws help, said Mellor of the National Retail Federation. But the patchwork of state-by-state laws motivates thieves to cross state lines in search of less severe punishment should they get caught. With Indiana being surrounded by states with organized retail crime laws, criminals in the Midwest could be drawn to the Hoosier state.
"The criminals are very quick to hop state lines," Mellor said. "For example, I'm in the Washington, D.C., area, and Virginia and Maryland are all so close. They'll jump across into Virginia, where they're home free with the stuff they stole in D.C. or Maryland."
The National Retail Federation has been lobbying for organized retail crime to be defined as a federal crime with appropriate sentencing guidelines.
"We've been advocating for a number of years, so the federal lawmakers are tuned into it ,and they know how serious it is," Mellor said.
