When thieves learned that Penney had removed sensor security tags as part of the transition to a new type of inventory tracking, they targeted the company's stores. At the same time, Penney stopped requiring customers to provide receipts with returned merchandise, so shoppers grabbed merchandise and "returned" it at cash registers without leaving the stores, the Journal says.

  1. ECN Forex Trading, while this point is often neglected by beginners, it is impossible to overemphasize the importance of the choice of broker.
